Someone please tell me what Disney has against mothers? Or how about parents in general?
Curious? Read on and please comment - what's your theory on this?
o Snow White And The Seven Dwarfs - Dead Mother / Evil Stepmother
o Pinocchio – No Mother – only Gepetto
o Bambi – mom dies in a fire – how awful is that?!?
o Cinderella - Dead Mother / Evil Stepmother
o Peter Pan – no parents for Peter or the lost boys…boo!
o Sleeping Beauty – Evil Maleficent is all we get in this one –
o The Jungle Book – no parents – sorry
o Robin Hood – parents who?!? No parents. For anyone…
o The Many Adventures Of Winnie The Pooh – we assume Christopher Robin has parents – but we never hear or see from them?
o The Rescuers – No parents, orphaned and kidnapped by the evil Madame Medusa
o The Fox And The Hound – no parents

o Finding Nemo – hello! Momma Fishie bites the dust in the opening act…
o James And The Giant Peach – no parents – only evil aunts
o Monsters, Inc. – Poor little “Boo” – we never see any mother or father for her
