Top 10 Saddest TV Show Episodes/Moments

anonygirl
I did not add any episodes of children's shows because there is already a list of the saddest Children's Shows episodes. However, if you want to add episodes of children's shows (Rugrats, SpongeBob, Blue's Clues, Lilo and Stitch, Dexter's Lab, Powerpuff Girls, etc.), then you can. But do not complain that this list does not contain episodes from Nickelodeon's, Cartoon Network's, Disney Channel's, PBS Kids', or Kids Blocks' TV shows. The same thing goes with animated adult shows like the Simpsons. Also, these are listed in ABC order, so not-so-sad items may be high on this list and vice versa. If you disagree with this list, then I still respect your opinion. However, if you think this is a terrible list, then please do not comment.

The Top Ten

13 Hey Arnold!: Parent's Day Hey Arnold!: Parent's Day

This was a very sad episode... "You don't need me to tell you a bedtime story...

This was the best - yet saddest episode of the series. Kessie was one of the best characters. :D
