    1Bambi's Mother - Bambi
    No cartoon death caused much heart-break like this. I was easy to love Bambi's mom. She was caring and loving to her only son, and taught him all he needs to learn to one day become The Great Prince of The Forest. However, on one faithful winter's night, while helping her son find food, Bambi's mom senses danger and she and Bambi make a run for it.

  • 2Littlefoot's Mother - The Land Before Time
    What better way to start a children's film than with the death of the main character's mother? It's obviously worked to great dramatic effect in previous feature cartoons, but that doesn't take the sting away. Maybe it's because we visualize our own mothers, or maybe it's because we're capable of empathy. Whatever

  • 13Baymax - Big Hero 6
    This does not count because it was not permanent. Baymax managed to give over his consciousness chip to Hiro before making the sacrifice which allowed Hiro to give Baymax another body

  • 14Brian Griffin - Family Guy
    This does not count because stewie went back in time and prevented it from happening in the Christmas episode that aired two episodes after Brians death

  • 15SpongeBob & Patrick - The SpongeBob SquarePants Movie
    This does not count because it was not permanent

  • 16The Iron Giant - The Iron Giant
    No robot death manage to make us cry quite like his. This massive machine forgets his past as a tool of destruction and befriends a young boy who teaches him about life. In the end, he makes a heroic sacrifice after a rouge missile threatens to destroy the town of Rockwell.

  • 17Maude - As Told by Ginger
    Nickelodeon audiences were not prepared for Nickelodeon's first on-screen TV death. In the season 1 episode, Carl and Maude, Ginger's brother Carl meets an old prankster named Maude. It becomes a shock when when Maude passes on during dinner.

No temporary deaths. Permanent ones only because if a character gets brought back then this negates all the sadness completely
