    Hunchback of Notre Dame is pretty deperssing. It gets me everytime I see the scene where Quasimodo thinks Esmerelda is dead. I choke up as he starts sobbing or when he gets his heart broken, over looking Phoebus and Esmerelda as they kiss.

    And wouldn't you know, neither Todd nor Copper survives in the end of the Fox and the Hound original novel.

    Beauty and the Beast has a few spots that cause lumps to form in my throat.

    I'd say a lot of Disney movies have sad, unforgettable moments that touch us and move us. Mufasa dying and Bambi loosing his mother, Oliver watching his siblings being adopted while people fail to give him a second glance, Quasimodo never finding "heaven's light,” and Mary Poppins flying off into the clouds to fix another families problems. When Dory is trying to convince Marlin not to leave her is one of the saddest scenes I can think of, followed closely by Boo having to say good-bye to "Kitty." Lady being chained up outside, when we think Baloo might be dead, and Tod’s return to the wild.

    The great thing about these moments is that usually they are followed by a happy ending…but even more amazing is that a cartoon can move someone like myself so much and cause you to feel for its’ characters. Thus is the magic of Disney. I am proud to say that Finding Nemo makes me cry every time I see it, or that I tear up at Fox and the Hound. That’s what the movies are supposed to do.

    "I take great pride in the artistic development of cartoons. Our characters are made to go through emotions which a few short years ago would have seemed impossible to secure with a cartoon character.”

    Saddest Scene: Feed the Birds in Mary Poppins
    Saddest Movie: Lion King. The violent death of Simba's father gets to me more than Bambi's mother because he was a developed character.

    yet in bambi it was an implied death.. so it is up the the audiene to imagine it....

    in Lion King it wasn't exactly implied... (excapt scars was somewhat..but i always see a comical death there...)

    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ 100th POST!!! ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

    Hands down the single Disney movie that makes me cry EVERY time I see it is Monsters Inc. The relationship formed between Sulley and Boo is so touching. Almost in the way of Romeo and Juliet, they were never meant to be together, and yet fate has created their friendship. At the end, when you think there's just nothing that can be done to keep them together and they may never see each other again, my heart breaks and tears form. :o

    It's almost bittersweet to me that the door is reassembled for Boo to be visited by "Kitty" once more, because I'm left thinking about how Boo will be growing up, and maybe not remember Sulley when she's older.

    I can't believe how many of you consider Eisner movies to be anything comparable to the classics in any way, shape or form. Monsters Inc, Lion King, Brother Bear, and Hunchback, your standards have certainly been lowered. But what do you expect when generations are raised on Sesame Street, MTV and Sex and the City. I agree, Dumbo and Bambi pull at the heartstrings as only the "mother/child" relationship can, but what about Old Yeller? Tommy Kirk shooting his dog has to be the saddest Disney scene (and best live action acting) in the cannon. In most "comming of age" movies these days, the protagonist gains adulthood by either A. losing her virginity or B. fighting with dad. Like Bill Murry says in Stripes, "I cried my eyes out".
