Buzz In: Which Animated Movies Made You Cry?

As many of you likely discovered over the weekend, Pixar's new blockbuster Up is a total tearjerker. Who would have thought a funny-looking movie about a grumpy old man, talking dogs, and an inquisitive little kid could make me bawl like a baby?!

I was wondering how little kids are handling some of the sad scenes in Up, and then I remembered that animated movies have been making kids (including me) cry for years now. An obvious example is Bambi with — spoiler alert! Ha ha — the mom dying and all. Personally, I will never ever forgive forget the brutal emotional experience of watching Mufasa plummet to his death as his little baby cub looks on in The Lion King. Seriously, when it comes to this scene, I still cannot keep the tears back.

Which animated movies have done you in?

Lion King, Beauty and the Beast, Prince Nutcracker - I bowled my eye out with that one, I can just think of the Nutcracker and cry right then and there. But I never cry in real life :)

Land Before Time.when Little Foot's mother dies omg, just thinking about it makes me want to cry. and then he has to go on this journey to find his grandparents and he's all alone at first :( I've been watching this film since I was 4 and no matter how many times I have seen it, I cry starting from the opening credits

The Lion King did make me cry, but I will never stop crying when I watch the Fox and the Hound. It is in my opinion the saddest animated film of all time.

I don't think there's a Disney movie that DOESN'T make me cry! I'm like all the other moms who have commented here: We all remember the sad parts from when we were little but now watching them again with our kids we really cry. We're a bunch of Disney wimps! And this weekend I get to see UP. Here we go again!

I ALLLLLWAYS cry at the end of Monster's Inc. when Sully tells Boo goodbye and when Mike builds the door so he can see her again and that last scene "Kitty!" Gets me every time.
