As opposed to, say, “Bambi” or “Fox and the Hound” or the original “Land Before Time.” Dead Mothers is like a whole genre.
And if mom doesn’t die in the story, it’s probably because she was dead from the beginning. “Beauty and the Beast”, “The Little Mermaid”…
Big Hero Six, both parents dead at the beginning, then big brother dies too.
The worst – “Finding Nemo”. A desperate search for the last surviving child of a vicious home invasion that killed his mother and dozens of babies!
My mother always skipped the first chapter of my Finding Nemo DVD.
It was a shock for me when I realised that Nemo had a mother too for the first time.
