8 Heartbreaking Moments From Children’s Films That Have Left Us Traumatized

No matter how many children’s movies make us laugh or squeal with delight, it’s the sad and terrifying scenes that have stayed with us into adulthood. Squints fooling Wendy into a poolside kiss was amusing, but Charlotte dying sweetly while Wilbur is left to care for her babies still fills me with dread to this day. Kids feel emotions so deeply, and seeing such situations transports us back to the first time we felt them: dry-heaving on our parents’ living room rugs with no tears to sob. I’ve created a list of some of the situations that left lasting imprints on the souls of POPSUGAR editors. This is by no means a complete list (sorry, Bambi’s mom), but rather the memories that we cherish. Please be advised that this material may cause you to cry uncontrollably. Thus, we at Animated Times have curated a list of 8 of the most heartbreaking moments from children’s films that have left us all traumatized. It sounds devastating! If yes, then let’s hop onto the list and find out what these moments really were.

8. Baby-Sitter’s Club: Kristy at the Carnival:

“The only moment I remember from the Baby-Sitters Club is when Kristy’s father cheated on her during the carnival and she became stuck in the fairgrounds. It is now terribly frightening, it is pouring rain, and her small heart is utterly crushed. Kristy’s father is an absolute MONSTER. ”

7. The Fox and The Hound: Not Friends Anymore:

“The Fox and the Hound always made me cry as a kid… but I kept watching it anyway because they were just SUCH cute friends (and the movie secretly made me want a pet fox). I think the two scenes that made me the most emotional were when Todd and Copper first met after they’d grown up, because I realized they weren’t friends anymore, and when Widow Tweed returned Todd to the foreground. ”

6. Frosty the Snowman: RIP Frosty:

“I’ve previously written about this harrowing scenario because I’m enthusiastic about raising awareness of climate change and its catastrophic consequences. Frosty’s brutal death may have been the first time I sobbed during a cartoon-I think it affected me so much because he died while attempting to save someone, which is an unusual life lesson to learn from an animated holiday picture. Needless to say, I have not entered a greenhouse since. ”

5. Free Willy: The Goodbye:

“I used to force my grandfather to watch Free Willy with me most afternoons after school, and I’d have him sit through Jesse’s goodbye and the following pep talk as I sobbed silently on the couch next to him (I was the worst). Willy’s leap is incredibly moving! Jesse’s joyous leaps are very touching! The background music is really moving! “Jesse’s expression as he learns his Orca friend is gone and will never return is SO. EMOTIONAL. ”

4. Charlotte’s Web:

“Charlotte was the spider’s version of The Giving Tree. She brought so much delight to the animals, and one day, her time came to an end. She accepted death with grace, but watching Wilbur say goodbye to his dearest friend and mother figure was heartbreaking… even if Templeton gave some comic relief. ”

3. Now and Then: The Storm Drain:

“Looking back, it’s amusing to me how traumatized I was as a child by the storm drain scene (It’s so dark! It’s pouring buckets! There are also rats down there!). But, as a cynical adult, viewing Now & Then revealed the truth of the situation: in the middle of the night, my good sister Samantha plunged into a f*cking storm drain to salvage a broken bracelet she had received just 10 minutes before. She was adamant about coming down there, even when my other nice sister, Teeny, advised them to leave the bracelet at home. Yes, Sam’s lack of judgement is troubling, but I’ve always identified with her as a character, so I’m just going to blame her father for leaving and her mother for strolling about town like Nancy Sinatra. ”

2. The Iron Giant: The Ultimate Sacrifice:

“I rewatched this one a few months ago and still wept, but The Iron Giant is such an underappreciated film. The story is about an extraterrestrial who looks like a gigantic robot and befriends a 9-year-old kid on Earth. When the government learns of the Iron Giant, they endanger the lives of millions in order to eliminate him by firing a nuclear missile. In the end, the giant sacrifices himself

1. Air Bud: Josh Sends Bud Away:

“The part where Josh yells at Air Bud and tosses him a basketball to get him to quit wanting to come home with him destroyed me.”
