- "Beauty and the Beast" - where's Belle's mother? Nary a mention.
- "The Lion King" - the father, Mufasa, gets killed, and in a really sweet move by Disney, leaves Simba, his son, racked with some serious guilt.
- "Finding Nemo" - this time it's the mother who gets whacked. She maybe earned two minutes of screen time.
- "The Pirates of the Caribbean" trilogy - no Mrs. Swann to be found. What happened to her?
Have a great New Year's celebration tonight. Enjoy!
