Disney Orphans

If anyone knows, please tell me why Walt Disney and his family made sure that almost every lead character of his was missing at least one parent! Not convinced, let me do my worst. Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs, Snow White is an orphan living with her wicked Step Mother. Pinocchio is a wooden puppet who has no parents but does have his creator, Geppetto whom he calls father, but still yet, still has no mother figure. Dumbo is an elephant born to a single mother who is taken away from him and left alone. Bambi is born to two whole parents, but not so quickly there BAMBI, we have to brutally murder your Mother in front of an audience of children.

Cinderella must be a second cousin of Snow White since she too has a wicked step mother and both parents are dead! Alice wanders off to wonderland while listening to a story told by her older sister, we never see her parents, only the older sister, so I guess we're suppose to assume that just like all the other Disney heros, they are also orphans! Wendy and her brother John and Michael have parents, but that's ok, Walt makes up for that by having the story filled with about 2 dozen other children, including Peter Pan who ALL don't have parents!

We don't see the parents of either Lady or the Tramp, only Lady's human owners. Sleeping Beauty does have two loving parents who conveniently don't raise her, so in this compromise, the parents are living she just doesn't know that! In 101 Dalmatians, the children are NOT the main characters, very shocking for a Disney cartoon, the adults both canine and human eventually get mates and the dogs at least have a lot of children, so this might be the first full length feature Disney film to forget about the Orphan story line, took them over 20 years.

The Sword in the Stone begins with the death of the main character's father, the King of England, and he is raised as an orphan. The Jungle Book features Mowgli, an orphan human is left in a basket to be raised by a black bear and a panther, very comforting Walt. The Aristocats begins with a single mother's explanation of her death will to her three young kittens. Robin Hood is the 2nd Disney movie now not to feature orphans due to adults and not children being the main characters. Winnie the Pooh and his other friends ARE children, with no parents in sight.

The Rescuers is about a young orphan who pleads for the help of two mice who try to save her from a greedy old woman. In The Fox and the House, a red fox is orphaned and adopted by a Widow named Tweed. It is already 1985, and yet The Black Cauldron is now only #3 of the Disney movies to feature semi-adults, no orphans (please correct me if I'm wrong, I haven't seen this one, just reading about it on wiki). The Great Mouse Detective is about a little girl who is kidnapped by the boss of her Father who lost his wife several years ago.

Oliver and Company is famously based off of the greatest Orphan tale of all time, Oliver. In the Little Mermaid, single father King Triton has to raise his now 16 year old daughter, Ariel all alone. Cody is raised by a single father and then he's kidnapped and once again saved by mice. In Beauty and the Beast, Belle is raised solely by her tinkering Father and the Beast who's suppose to be younger than 18, does not have parents.

Aladdin is the classic Orphan street rat who falls in love with a princess who (drum roll) was raised only by her father. In the Lion King, Simba is forced to watch as his father falls to his gruesome death. Pocahontas is raised by her single father, Chief Powhatan. The Hunchback of Notre Dame's mother is killed outside the building before he is dropped there to live alone. It is 1997, and Hercules is now the 4th movie in which the main character does have parents.

Mulan is raised only by her mother. Tarzan? What's that about? Oh yeah, an orphan who's raised by gorillas. The opening scene of Dinosaur shows a mother abandoning her dinosaur egg. Kuzco is an orphan and lone emeror of the Inca Empire in The Emperor's New Groove. I'm getting tired, wanna go to sleep, you get the idea, look up the rest of the newer Disney and Pixar movies on your own, believe me, they're all there...not both the parents though...wouldn't wanna have that.
