      I'm not sure if I can do ten, but here's a couple. Also, I'm well aware how weird these are.

      - Jaws: When I was little, I honestly shed real tears when the shark blew up. I remember uttering the words, "I Hate you Sylvester Stallone!" Yeah, I thought Roy Schneider was Stallone. Whoops.

      - Ernest Goes to Camp: The scene where Ernest sings, "Sure Am Glad It's Raining" killed me when I was little. It still depresses the hell out of me, certainly now that Jim Varney has passed.

        Top Gun 1986 in the theater. I turn to my twin brother to make fun of my mom who is openly sobbing during the Goose death scene as a defense against my own choking up. He turns to me tears streaming down his face and says, "It's a ripper man". I bust out laughing. He busts out laughing. My mom manages a chuckle between snuffles. We get weird looks in the theater as we are the only people laughing during the sad part. To this day we still call any movie with a tear-jerk-er scene a ripper!

          8. Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs: The dwarfs thinks that Snow White is dead.
          7. The ending of the Looney Tunes cartoon "What's Opera, Doc?"
          6. Sesame Street's Follow that Bird: The Bluebird of Happiness
          5. The death of Mufasa in The Lion King.
          4. The scene in The Powerpuff Girls movie when they flew up into space after everybody in Townsville hated the girls even more.

          2. The ending of Tex Avery's Batty Baseball cartoon.

            We Amerikins have developed over the last decade or so an unhealthy exarcerbation to the public's addiction to what can only be desribed as "Anguish Porn". Everything now is about "Ooo,THe Feels!". Don't believe me? Read this:

              I can only think of one movie scene that almost made me cry as a kid: A Perfect World, when Kevin Costner's character dies at the end and the little boy is taken away as he says "butch, butch" and cries.

                I can only recall 2 and they were both the result of dogs being hurt.

                The first was one of the kill bee movies from the 70s. I must have been 4 at the time. In one scene a dog got attacked and killed by the bees. The dog looked a lot like our dog at the time so I went in the back yard and cried while hugging him.

                The second time was the movie Benji (1974). The guy from Green Acres and I think a couple of other people kidnapped this boy and girl. While they were tied up Benji's dog friend bite the guy to protect Benji while trying to steel a ransom note. After the dog bit him he kicked it. Benji ran away with the note he took. In the next scene he kept having flashbacks of him kicking his friend while running through the city. Made me
