The Top 10 Saddest Children's Movies



8) All Dogs Go to Heaven (1989)

All Dogs Go to Heaven straddles that line of being terrifying and sad, but we’re not here to reminisce on the oft-talked about Hell sequence (that’s a countdown for another time).

It’s a happy ending since (as the title implies) Charlie does walk through the pearly gates, yet his saying goodbye to Anne Marie is still an emotional doozy.
