Saddest Moments In Walt Disney Animated Classics

Disney Movies all have their sad moments. But which one is the very saddest?

The Top Ten

1 Mufasa's Death - The Lion King

Long live the king! - DontMessWithDaddylonglegs

I cry every time! Poor Simba...

This was so sad

2 Bambi's Mom's Death - Bambi

I was just a young boy when my mother took me to see Bambi (she took me to see all of the early Disney movies, starting with Snow White) Maybe because I was a young boy, but to me this was the saddest of them all!

Not as sad a Mufasa I agree, but come on? A little boy just lost his mother?! Surely that's sadder then just a side character dying?!

3 Baby Mine - Dumbo

I'm creeped out by the title of this... And ps, CLASSICS

So sad. I cry whenever I see this part. I wish I had a mother that loved me as much. - IsaiahWill22

4 The Poem About Losing Someone - The Fox and the Hound

The only part on any movie I ALWAYS CRY No exception is when the old lady leaves Tod in the forest on his own. I have cried many times the last images of toy story, but never as much as this one... It's just more injustice to a fox who has lost everything. Now, he must lose the woman he was raised by... Perhaps the only person he loved in his world. - keyson

Yeah, this is sad as damn. - DaringXx

GOD WHY DO I ALWAYS BAWL AT THIS?! - WaltDisneytoptens1937

5 Ray's Death - The Princess and the Frog
6 Todd's Moms Death - The Fox and the Hound

One of the darker Disney animated classics. I love it though. - dureckl

7 Snow White In Her Coffin - Snow White and the Seven Dwarves
8 Stitch Leaving Lilo - Lilo and Stitch
9 You'll Be In My Heart - Tarzan
10 Quasimodo Is Tortured - The Hunchback of Notre Dame

The Contenders

11 Kenai Tells Koda That He Killed His Mum - Brother Bear

In Disney, PURE Disney, only Dumbo and a handful of others are truly original by Disney. The Lion King is actually similar to Hamlet, in a way.

Never gets enough credit, beautiful film and possibly the best

12 Riley's Memories - Inside Out
13 Bing Bong's Death - Inside Out

This is my favorite part, because it's beautiful. I never cry at it. - mimitchi33

14 When the Beast Almost Dies - Beauty and the Beast
15 John Smith Gets Shot and Leaves - Pocahontas
16 Tears Of Joy - Inside Out
17 The King and Queen Die - Frozen
18 Hiro Crying - Big Hero 6
19 Anna Loses Her Memory - Frozen
20 Hiro Tries to Kill Professor Callaghan - Big Hero 6
21 Very Good Advice - Alice in Wonderland
