Saddest cartoons ever made

Ryder Ward
Ryder Ward

Jack Frost gives up his place as an immortal winter sprite just to be with the girl he thinks loves him only to lose her and goes back to the only thing he has left in his life, his job.
Kubla Kraus is a lonely, recluse who is so despicable that no one wants to live with him so he created friends and army out of wing up tin men, and then at the peak of his misery, sings a song about what he could of been if born in another life.
It's cartoons like this that always make me tear up, when the good guy doesn't win anything in the end despite his good deeds.
I can't think of anything sadder, enlighten me, Holla Forums?

I haven't seen any of these on TV in like a decade. They used to be on all the time.

Caleb Bailey

I don't think they even show the Rudolph movie anymore.
I did see the Charlie Brown Christmas special this past year though, which is surprising to me because it's been increasingly haram/non-kosher to even reference Jesus in a positive manner at all, much less allow a cartoon to be aired where one of the characters gives a full speech about him.

There was that one transformers series with the cyber keys and the yellow and purple explosions that ended with megatron getting the earth key and mowing down Optimus Prime and all of his friends with a chaingun and then laughing over their corpses…

At least in the 70's they told kids the truth about relationships.

I remember seeing a christmas special on TV where the villain would turn presents into black sludge called "yuck". Some shit happens and a snowman or some other christmas thing absolutely roasts the child protagonists for being failures. Also one of the kids is in a wheelchair. Don't ask me anything else about the special though because it's been at the very least a decade and a half since the last time I saw it and am not entirely sure if it exists or if it's merely a part of my imagination.

Hudson White

Is there any cartoon where it looks like it's going to be the usual kid-friendly story of a protagonist on an adventure, but then it turns out that the world is not a happy place and our protagonist should have stayed at home? Like, the protag packs his lunch and hops on a ship going to far away lands, but instead of having a fun adventure he gets betrayed, robbed, abused, and sold to slavery. Watch our lovable hero suffer horribly in this sadistic story that feels like a never-ending gut punch!

Anything like that?

Noah Myers

I saw a review of that. Magical Gift of the Snowman.

I dreamed that I saw a TV show about a Grandma turned to gold. Turns out it wasn't a fantasy either. Go figure.

I remember watching a Christmas movie as a kid where an angel is sent to give a crown to baby Jesus but gets attacked by wolves, gets his clothes torn and goes through all sorts of trouble only to lose the crown. It ends with him finally seeing baby Jesus and seeing the 3 wise men give Jesus their gifts. I think it was done by Don Bluth.

Asher Young

It has been done in literature. Not sure about cartoons though.

Closest I can think of Pinocchio.

Xavier Williams

was there every a cartoon of it? I think it'd be wonderful for an animated miniseries.

Gabriel Jackson
Gabriel Jackson

A cartoon about the main character getting shit on for being optimistic, his wife raped, village burned down, sold into slavery, tortured, friends killed, falsely imprisoned, and a crapsack bittersweet ending to top it all off?

I don't know if modern western society is ready for tragedy of those levels.

Brayden Turner

Austin Bell

It's entirely fictional, but from the age there was a lot of blind optimism at the time going around about living in the best of all possible worlds, so this is Voltaire just taking someone who think on that and thoroughly shitting all over him.

Leo Jackson

Oh fuck that takes me back.
Growing up we had this and a bunch of other old cartoons on a kind of best-of VHS full of old cartoons.

50 of the Greatest Cartoons, Volumes I and II.
I just dug it out of storage and watched it again. A lot of classic Looney Tunes, Harvey Toons, Little Lulu, Raggedy Anne, interspersed with abysmal 3 Stooges animated shorts.

The Last Unicorn.
Instead of getting the girl, the guy gets killed and revived, then orphaned a second time as his home collapses into the sea.
Instead of getting the guy, the girl gets turned back into a unicorn… but on the bright side, she's now the only unicorn that can feel sadness and regret… for the rest of her immortal life.

Jaxson White

This shit was fucking depressing for me. Jack goes through all that trouble, makes himself mortal for love, sacrifices his newfound humanity and his human self isn't even remembered, and worst of all, the girl who supposedly loved him had a knight in shining armor all along who she never even mentioned because she's a cruel bitch and the main villain is just a really lonely loser who by today's standards would just be an imageboard poster who works as a low-class engineer. And there's that tiny ice qt who he can't even hook up with because she's too small for the frozen D. No wonder Jack Frost was evil in Frosty's Winter Wonderland.

FUCK IM SAD AND PISSED

I hate him. I hate him so much. I never hated any cartoon character before. Not truly. Sure I hate certain cartoons overall, but to hate one specific character this much? I simply can't translate the true essence of my hate into words.

Classic.

Maybe the book is good, but the movie is not. The awful singing doesn't help either.

Sebastian Lopez

I know that feel bros. It's even worse when you see the movie as a kid and think that the ending is unrealistic because no one would do that in real life. Then it happens to you in real life and you realize that you are two times a fool.

here was an animation that aired a number of months ago in the UK that just chronicled the true story of some authors parents life. I don't remember what the fuck it was though.

Jayden Wright
Jayden Wright

it should have ended with Jack finding an even cuter girl who likes him and all he has to do is talk to her. And he becomes friends with castle-dweller Kubla Klaus, and Klaus becomes a better person and they can mess around and have good times in his castle. Then the blonde girl sees Jack with a hot wife and a sweet castle and gets jealous. Then Jack loses his immortality, after having kids, but then madara uchiha gets resurrected except he's still immortal. And I’m not talking about Edo Tensei Uchiha Madara. I’m not talking about Gedou Rinne Tensei Uchiha Madara either. Hell, I’m not even talking about Juubi Jinchuuriki Gedou Rinne Tensei Uchiha Madara with the Eternal Mangekyou Sharingan and Rinnegan doujutsus (with the rikodou abilities and being capable of both Amateratsu and Tsukuyomi genjutsu), equipped with his Gunbai, a perfect Susano’o, control of the juubi and Gedou Mazou, with Hashirama Senju’s DNA implanted in him so he has mokuton kekkei genkai and can perform yin yang release ninjutsu while being an expert in kenjutsu and taijutsu.

Holy crap, this. When I was a kid, I cried like a baby. As an adult, I just felt really depressed, so I read the book, and that one made me cry again.

For as morbid as it is, it also carries a good lesson. Once you make a mistake, there's no turning back.
