Default Depressing children's movies

...so I was bored the other day and started looking up old Peanuts movies on youtube. I found this one:

YouTube - Snoopy Come Home 1
(it's in twelve parts; the link is to part 1)

If you've never seen Snoopy Come Home, you really need to; it's not your average happy-go-lucky Peanuts movie. If you have seen it, you know how depressing it is. The sappy songs, the melodramatic story, the too-cute-characters...but it's perfect. I must have seen it literally several hundred times as a kid (yes, literally; my dad taped a version off of TV and I watched it every day for several summers. There weren't many other kids in the neighborhood) and probably cried every time (still do, actually, though I probably shouldn't freely admit that).


Two other depressing kid's movies; The Iron Giant and The Brave Little Toaster. I saw Toaster at least fifty times.

Was anyone else attracted to depressing stuff as a kid? Cheery cartoons never did much for me.

Has anyone noticed in just about every Disney movie they killed off one if not both the parents?

OMG, I forgot about that one! I broke down everytime the lady leaves Todd at the nature reserve. Sometimes I couldn't even finish watching the tape after that. The ending is just as sad.

Ugh, exactly. And she's singing that song...
I would seriously be sobbing uncontrollably. My parents tried to take it away from me, but I refused. I loved it too much.

YouTube - Fox & Hound (Tod & Copper / Cap & Capper) ... sad scene


...most depressing clip ever?


I gave my copy away a while ago...it was too hard to watch. I'm watching that youtube clip with the sound off and it's still unbelievably painful.

Nope. I can't do it.

The cunning ploy in these movies is that heartache makes you stronger and instills a better backbone early on in life. Ever seen 'Night of The Hunter'? One of the most warped fairy tales you will ever see.
