    Parents in Disney Movies

    I was going back in my family little time machine and was reading a school newspaper from 2003. When I read that 101 dalmatians and Peter Pan are the only 2 Disney movies in which neither parent dies during the course of the movie, I did not believe it. There has to be a movie other than those 2. Is it true or were they lying to us when they gave this newspaper out. Remember it is from May of 2003.

    There's also Lady and the Tramp, Jenny's parents in Oliver and Company, Hercules, and Mulan. Not sure of any others from pre 2003 though. There are other movies where no parent dies, but these are the only that I can think of that start and end with two parents.

    There are also movies where the subject is not addressed like Monster's Inc. We are never introduced to Boo's parents.

    Did the newspaper say the parents actually dead? Or was it that the a parent was absent. For example in Pinochio, Alice and Wonderland, and Toy Story, there is at least one parent absent.

    Re: Parents in Disney Movies

    Do they mean live action movies or cartoons. Live Action I can think of Parent Trap and as far as cartoons go I can think of Dumbo, Dumbo's mom got locked up but she didn't die. So just from the list that everyone else mentioned I would say that school newspaper is wrong.
    It's kind of fun to do the impossible!

    The parent was absent.
