* A meta example. Adriana Caselotti, the voice over for Snow White was granted the role, but only under contractual obligation she could not use her voice in any other work, Disney not wanting to spoil the illusion of the character. She was in fact offered several opportunities in showbiz, but Disney always forbade them, only allowing her to provide her voice to Snow White related performances. In one of the harsher acts in Disney's creativity, a promising young performer was denied her chance to make it big after one role.

** One has to also keep in mind that the story already elaborated that Snow White ''wasn't'' dead and pretty much spelled out how she would be revived. Despite the film essentially spoiling it's own HappyEnding, the dwarfs' mourning is played with such earnest pathos you can only feel sorrow for them.

** There are stories of how ''Snow White'' was allegedly the first animated anything to make an audience cry at the premiere. After months prior to the release of people calling the movie "Disney's Folly," saying that an hour and a half of color/animation would drive people mad, etc., a bunch of grown celebrities/film industry members broke down over the sight of a dead cartoon character. Seeing Dopey sob into Doc's shoulder probably didn't help...

** Then poor Dopey, who is pretty much the baby of the group, is so upset that he begins to cry into Doc's shoulder. And Doc, who is barely holding back tears himself, can only gently pat Dopey on the back.

** Grumpy can't even bear to ''look'' at her after all the crap he gave her.

** Grumpy can't even bear to ''look'' at her after all the crap he gave her. He ''had'' to have been thinking "I was nothing but mean to her, and I never got to tell her that I ''did'' like her."

** Probably the biggest reason this scene was such an effective tearjerker is because other than the mourning animals, the scene was played completely straight and realistically, with the exact same atmosphere one would expect at a real-life funeral. No epic soundtrack, no great meaningful speech, no symbolic magical events... just sadness and loss.

* Queen Grimhilde's DarkAndTroubledPast in the prequel book "Fairest of All". Her actions are still evil, of course, but when you learn ''why'' she got that way, it's ''heartbreaking'' and puts her into WoonieDedtroyerOfWorlds territory.

* The most Tear Jerking thing about this movie is not actually a part of the story. In Don Bluth's guide to animation, Bluth himself, former Disney employee, described the point during production where Disney ran out of money halfway through the film. With no way to finish, he had to go to the bank and beg for another loan in front of a board of executives. As an aid, he brought along fragments of the half finished film, fragments which astounded the entire board. When finished, the Head Executive got to his feet and made what, for a business man at that time especially, constitutes a ''tremendous'' leap of faith into the complete unknown:

* "Someday My Prince Will Come." Why? The thought of someone wanting to harm Snow White-a young, gentle person-is heartbreaking.
