Well since got more posts than I thought it would, might as well start a discussion. Why do you think these clips are so sad, or would they be more or less effective if they were live action as opposed to animated?

I think it really depends, but for the most part, I couldn't picture them being pulled off as effectively if it were live-action.

In Up, is the kid's dad dead, his family split up, or is he just not home a lot due to work? I feel like they were intentionally vague about his family (he said he and his dad used to do this, mentions a lady who's "not his mom")
I always took it as his parents were split and that lady was his dad's girlfriend/second wife, but then my parents got divorced when I was right around that age so that may be why I recall it that way.

Aside from the ones mentioned, probably when Bambi's mother got shot and killed.

I considered that, or maybe the lady is a nanny because his dad's always gone? Maybe they left it ambiguous so it would hit home with more people or felt it had more power that way.

This one should probably also be left here because it was pretty devastating when I was a kid.

Did anyone ever watch The Animals of Farthing Wood growing up? Because, my god, pretty much that entire series would qualify.

I'm a big puss who tears up at every kids movie, but the saddest to me is The Fox And the Hound
Hopefully that's the right scene; I'm at work and can't watch.

needs more attention
