The Most Traumatizing Moments from Children’s Movies


If you’ve ever watched FernGully or Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory, you know that many classic children’s movies have scenes or plot points that aren’t exactly kid-friendly.

There are kidnappings (Hook, Labyrinth, 101 Dalmatians), neglect (Matilda, The Secret Garden) and dead parents – so many dead parents (Bambi, Lion King, Finding Nemo, Land Before Time).

Seriously, you do not want to be the mom of the main character in a Disney movie, because you’re probably not going to make it past the prologue.

Perhaps in an effort to give us more fodder for future therapy sessions, College Humor put together a collection of the “50 Most Traumatizing Moments From Kids’ Movies.”

Do you remember being spooked by any of these?
