Top 5 Most Depressing Cartoons You've Ever Seen by scaramenga: 9:21am On Aug 27, 2016
1.Animals of farthwood

An NTA2 channel 5 favourite 90s kids will remember.
Its about a group of forest creatures who are forced out of their homes by humans turning the forest into a mall or whatever, anyway they head for a park (which is kind of a sanctuary for their kind) and have some misadventures along the way and when I mean misadventures I mean some of them getting shot and killed or getting road killed or getting pierced and killed by thorns.
There is not a single scene of fun or laughter it is all darkness, sorrow , pain and fear. Anyway a handful of them made it to the park in the end that counts as a win right?

2.Alixx
From silverbird on saturday mornings, it follows the adventures of alexander the great which includes losing his friends to such violents and twisted fates.
I remember an episode where he befriended a lion and during war time the lion attacked alixxs enemies and got killed off screen but that wasn't enough for the studio, they had to show us the dead lion with tons of arrows all over its body dumped in the desert and then they were done I mean they literarily cut to credits after that scene

3.Code geass
A little more recent than the others on the list and arguably the best anime I've ever seen,the story follows an exiled prince of a ficticious nation and his obsession with destroying this said nation for personal reasons using mostly his brain and some hypnotic power given to him by a witch. Cool story right? Well except for one thing, code geass has about 43 episodes and only 1 is a happy episode, the saddest moment was when his younger brother(long story) sacrificed himself to save the Prince from attacking soldiers it was so slow and so real I could literarily feel the little boys heart slow down and to top it all there was one really melancholic tune playing in background just to seal the deal angry and in the end it was all for nothing cause the prince intended on killing his brother initially(long story)

4.Little prince
Hey who remembers little prince from NTA 10? about a dude from planet b-16 who travels from his planet using a shooting star to visit earth and bump into someone who just happens to be depressed about something, the little prince helps him conquer his depression says a painful goodbye and heads back to his lonely planet leaving me depressed sad

5.Lost toys
A channels television favourite won't be surprised if they still show it by now, its about an abandoned teddy bear and doll who look for new owners, if you are expecting a funny toy story like adventure you go tey this cartoon shows a destitute injured dog, a cold teddy bear, an almost n*ked doll who kept ripping off her dress to treat peoples wounds, at the end they get new owners but in different homes and the dog doesn't even get adopted he's just abandoned in the snow while this really really saaaaaaad adele like song plays in the back ground.

Is there any cartoon I missed in my list?

I was depressed for a few days afterwards.
Cartoons should have a feel-good concept and storyline. This is by far one of the saddest cartoons I have ever watched.

Little prince was depressing, most especially the part where the prince helped a dog get adopted by a kind family but the dog wanted to be with the prince.


Lost toys was sad buy ended pretty well, the dog wasn't abandoned rather it was adopted by the kind man that dresses as Santa clause.... .. Watch it again if you doubt me.

Hahaha my man, this cartoon wasn't only depressing it was sort of disturbing.

At OP, the last cartoon you mentioned was quite sad for me watching it as a child. The song has stuck with me since all these years. And it was called THE FORGOTTEN TOYS, not the lost toys.

Wall E was boring to me so I never got to find out what it was about. Nobody was saying anything angry

Abeg no kill me with laughter, British people are realist na, that's why most of their cartoons are not based on happily ever after dear.

For me: Persepolis.

This animated adaption actually has a 96% rating on RottenTomatoes, and yet to say I regret watching it is an understatement.

Of course Zeus and Roxanne - we're the titans, we're the best. We're bigger and we're stronger than the rest...... Boom shaga Laga laga laga, boom shaga laga laga laga... Boom! Boom!

Home ward bound about two dogs and a cat - shadow the Golden retriever, sassy the cat and chance the pit bull.

Andre - about an intelligent seal and it's bond with a girl and her family... It was based on a true life story... Na channels television dey show am wella.. . .

Terra Hawks never scared me, I think they were the reason I was always bogging my mom, aunt's, uncles and even my elder sisters boyfriends that I needed dolls like them....

grin

I don't remember water down.....
Oliver twist only Made me sad a bit.

The cartoon that made me scare was because of one mischievous character there named "animal" - daffy babies u think... There is groggy, piggy and the rest of them then their never fully shown but leggy nanny.

Andre is the seal not the girl

OH oh oh, I no remember am. I thought you meant Hercules and Zena with the titans. Lol

Yes I remember that part but it wasn't shown just depicted at the end of the movie.... If you're a series fan and have seen Grey's anatomy you will remember the girl that acted as the little girl in Andre was a resident doctor in the series, season 10 I think. Lol


I be female o..... But I dey suspect maybe we be twins....

All dogs go to heaven was one of my best cartoons at some point during my childhood. I remember one number they did 'Easy Street'. The protagonist's name was Charlie or something. Wasn't all that depressing to me.

I've always found Bambi to be more boring than depressing.

Can't remember Inside Out at the moment.

Who remembers 'Jack and The Giant Peach'?

Mrs Spider, the grasshopper that plays the violin, the disgusting aunties, the other insects, the flying peach which served as their food source and also their ship?

Those aunties take style resemble zombies.
