Tear Jerker: The Moomins
1990 animated series
Nipsu Rakastuu (The Girl With Birds). Basically, Sniff falls in love and has his heart broken. It's hard to watch the poor guy sob his heart out on the front steps of the Moomin house and not once does anyone step up and hug him.
Moomin's complete terror after being (temporarily) transformed by the Hobgoblin's hat. He's physically unrecognizable and his friends and family refuse to believe it's him, treating him like an imposter. He begins crying and when his mother shows up, he desperately pleads with her to recognize him. Mercifully, she does, and he changes back shortly thereafter.
Another episode has Moominpapa run away with Mama to seek adventures. Moomin calling out their names at the top of the hill with the sad music playing in the background makes a real tearjerking scene.
