So first entry in and I was already turned off.

Dumb 'Disney was a Nazi' jokes aside what the hell was u with that stuff about Walt's mom?
He felt guilty about her death because he bought her that house, so he killed off mother figures in his works? That's not funny, that's depressing.

A lot of the Grimm fairy tales Disney adapted were published around the time of plague and the Thirty Years War. So, naturally a lot of the main characters were missing one or both parents.

Oh boy. Another article by Cracked where they take a bunch of things to prove a point and completely ignore the massive evidence proving otherwise.

For instance, Sam (Molly Ringwald's character) actually has a good mother in Sixteen Candles. She does forget Sam's birthday, but the entire family does, because they're preoccupied with her sister's wedding. But they eventually realize they forgot, and her mother tearfully apologizes to Sam, and she forgives her.

It's a perfectly acceptable thing to do if they're relying upon deliberate exclusion to meet a funny, absurd conclusion.

Unfortunately, I don't think the latest stable of writers has really proven themselves capable of that sort of thing. That would require a sense of humor.
