What happend in this Episode

18 Find Her, Keep Her (The New Adventures Of Winnie The Pooh)

This is by far the saddest episode in the entire franchise, but one of the most memorable. Winnie The Pooh is truly an amazing franchise.

This episode was brilliant though. Shame Kessie didn't really appear after this. She'd have made a brilliant main character.

Kessie reappears in some or few episodes

19 Things Change (Teen Titans)
20 Salty Codgers (Teen Titans Go)

In this episode, the Titans (sans Raven) get turned into old people. And later, after Raven teaches them that old people can be cool...they die. From old age. It's played completely seriously, and it's actually really heart wrenching, especially if you remember what the show is usually like. Even people who didn't like the show cried at the Old Titan's funeral and Raven's eulogy. It gets even sadder when you pay attention to Cyborg's Grandchildren, the way one of them asks Raven where Cyborg is is very sad. In this episode, the Titans don't ever go back to being young, and it is not a dream. Salty Codgers is sad because the Titans died from old age. Appreciate old people, like your grandparents, while you can. For one day...they're not going to be alive anymore.

36 Invisible Brad (Henry Danger)
37 We Are Family (Marvel's Guardians of The Galaxy)
38 The Sad Story Of Henry (Thomas The Tank Engine)

This was a messed up episode. Henry is afraid the rain well spoil his paint so... He gets bricked up in a tunnel and left there for "always and always and always"... and the narrator ends the episode saying "I think he deserved his punishment. Don't you? " This is the darkest moment in the series.

39 Jingle Bell Rock (Guardians of the Galaxy)
40 On the Run (Steven Universe)

This episode takes Amethyst, a fun character that is always joking around, and gives her a dark backstory and self esteem issues. I am not a very emotional person, and even I was in tears!
"I never asked for it to be this way! I never asked to be made! "
There are SO MANY heartbreaking episodes like this in Steven Universe, but this is by far one of the saddest.

41 One Journey Ends, Another Begins (Pokemon The Series, Sun and Moon)
42 You Can't Always Get What You Want (Marvel's Guardians of the Galaxy)
43 A Fearless Friend - Sonic x (Japanese Version)

This is by far one of the saddest episodes in the entire Sonic franchise. The way Tails broke down when he found out he had to shoot Cosmo and when he shot Cosmo was very hard to watch without having to blink back tears.

44 iGoodbye (iCarly)

The saddest episode ever on Nickelodeon. Made my heart break. Millions of hearts broke. Nothing quite matched it from any show on Nick. More sad than even Liv and Maddie ending.
