I saw a picture/meme thing on Facebook about Andy's mom from Toy Story being a single mom and how awesome it was that society is accepting non traditional family roles.




Well....that got me thinking.



Did everyone forget that Belle from Beauty and the Beast was raised by a single DAD? And so was Snow White until he remarried. And so was Jasmine from Aladdin. And so was Cinderella until he remarried.
I'm sure I'm forgetting some, but there you go.



Did people forget these characters?




Random thread of the day.

I don't think so. I'm assuming she died.

Seems like there's more single parents in Disney than two parent families.

Yes! And Aladdin was an orphan. And Mowgli was a feral child.
Arthur was raised by (I think) his uncle.
I don't think there are very many Disney movies that have a traditional mom and dad family role.



The mom from Old Yeller was a single mom too, wasn't she? Or did the dad just go away for a while?

Tangled was kidnapped and raised by a "mom". Nemo is Disney.

Tangled had both parents, but she was kidnapped and raised by a single woman.
