  1. Omigosh. lolol.
    Faves: #9 and #4. Henny Penny was right, but did she have to be so self-righteous about it? Hon. mention goes to Barney on Fire, just on general principles.

    (#3 is almost true, except - spoiler! - it's Babar's mother who gets killed. And on a personal note, #10 happened to my sisters and me when we were small, except instead of a farm is was a mass of dead leaves. We had hornets in our sock and underwear, and yes, we ran home pretty fast.)
