Remember how bright and happy Disney cartoons always made you feel as a kid? The Little Mermaid, Peter Pan, Pocahontas—all children's cartoons, all with bright, shiny, happy endings. Aww, even now, it just makes you feel all warm and fuzzy inside...

She doesn't, though, choosing to commit suicide instead.

is your childhood ruined yet?
