Have you ever noticed that almost all Disney movies features characters with only one parent?
From Dumbo to Beauty and The Beast, almost all of our favorite Disney characters have to struggle through life without one or both of their parents. Bambi’s mother is shot dead, Belle only had her father, who ended up getting lost. Ariel, Cinderella, Snow White, Aladdin the list goes on and on… There’s no mother to be found. It’s because Walt Disney’s own mother was the victim of a horrible tragedy, that Walt never forgave himself for.
After finding success in the 1940’s he was able to buy his parents a new home. After experiencing furnace problems Disney ordered his staff to fix the problem which turned out to be fatal. The next day a housekeeper found Disney’s parents unconscious. She pulled them out to the front yard just in time to save his father, but sadly Disney’s mother was already dead.
Such a horrible story.
