Sad Disney: “Dumbo”

Even though Dumbo is a character who never speaks, the Disney animators still make us sympathize with his plight. A child who must fend for himself after his mother is unjustly locked up by the Circus, Dumbo’s “prison” visit with his mother is a sad sequence that often makes audiences cry. While the song Baby Mine is often used as a sweet lullaby, the film introduces it in one of its sadder scenes. Illustrating the bond between mother and child makes the characters seem more human.

Sad Disney: “Pinocchio”

In the Disney film Pinocchio, we are presented with a flawed, yet loveable wooden boy who must prove himself in order to become real. Things are further complicated by the fact that it is Gepetto’s wish and not his, though he truly wants to do right by his “father.”
Since we’re there from the beginning when Gepetto makes his wish and we see how nice and kind he is, we are invested in seeing his wish come true. Therefore the scene in which Gepetto believes his ‘little wooden head’ has died packs a huge wallop.
