In last weekend's most hilarious Golden Globes presentation, Kristen Wiig & Steve Carell equated Fantasia and Bambi with utterly traumatic childhood experiences. Which begs the question...
What cartoon sends you spiralling into depression?
JOSE: Dumbo! As a giant eared child, it brings back so many traumas.
ERIC: Dumbo. When caged Mama's trunk reaches for Dumbo's trunk: merciless!
NICK: The Legend of Bagger Vance.
KIM: Toy Story 3 was a pretty traumatic viewing experience for me; I came out of the theatre with my eyes almost swollen shut from crying. (The holding hands when they all thought they were going to die, you guys!) If I harken back to a movie that sent me off the edge as a kid, I'm going to go with The Secret of Nimh. I know it ENDS happily, but that movie is DARK.
JORGE: Spirited Away and Howl's Moving Castle throws me into a deep pit of out-of-body melancholy.
DAVID: The Fox and the Hound is a regular feature in my nostalgic nightmares, even though I haven't watched it since I was about twelve and the VHS gave out. Under the weight of emotional distress, no doubt.
STEVEN: Every time I think about the fact that there is a Cars 3 coming I get depressed. Does that count?
