Is this update fair? Should it have been Bambi’s mom instead?
Speaking of Disney classics, I’ve just been watching (many times, on repeat) Dumbo with my daughter. Most of the Disney films deal with orphaned kids, but in this case, the loving, doting parent is neither murdered nor missing (and we see some tender moments between mother and child. In fact, the whole first fifteen minutes are told through her perspective) but is sent away to solitary confinement, leaving the child to – as all other Disney protagonists do – grow up on his own with the aid of a parental surrogate.
Nothing to do with the previous post (at least not without coffee and a loooot of stretching), but thought I’d share.
