What Were the Most Disturbing Disney Deaths?
Ursula's Stabbing, 'The Little Mermaid' Slide 1 of 16
You might think that kids' movies would gloss over the less pleasant sides of life, in an effort to shelter children's innocence for a little while longer. But Disney has other ideas! Death is a common theme in Disney films, and sometimes those deaths are pretty brutal.
Take Ursula's death in 'The Little Mermaid,' for example. She's the bad guy of the film, so she has to go somehow. But did she really have to die by getting impaled on the jagged front edge of a sunken ship? And then she gets electrocuted, too, just in case you thought she might survive getting stabbed directly in the gut.
Talk about gruesome imagery!
