The Single Parent Disney Tear Jerker Technique:

5 Dec

Yesterday I realized while watching “The Little Mermaid” (What you got a problem with that?) that Ariel’s mom was deceased. Then two seconds later I realized that many more Disney stories are centered around the child of a single parent. With the missing parent usually dead.

Here are the films I could think of off the top of my head that fit the Single Parent Disney Tear Jerker Technique:

Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs
Pinocchio-Gepetto isn’t married, so there.
Dumbo
Bambi
Cinderella
The Little Mermaid
Beauty and the Beast
The Lion King
Finding Nemo
Ratatouille

If you think of more than let me know. But it does seem a little odd and very manipulative of Disney doesn’t it?
