Saddest Moments In Walt Disney Animated Classics

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

The Top Ten Saddest Moments In Walt Disney Animated Classics

1 Mufasa's Death - The Lion King

Scar...heart of stone -- great character!

I cry every time! Poor Simba...

Long live the king! - DontMessWithDaddylonglegs

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
THE PRINCESS AND THE FROG IS NOT A CLASSIC - MoldySock

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

Yeah, this is sad as damn. - DaringXx

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

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
