The Fox and the Hound
As if tearing a beautiful friendship apart wasn't bad enough, in the original 1967 Fox and the Hound novel our two unlikely pals both die horribly.
Copper dies of exhaustion during a hunt and Todd is shot by his abusive, alcoholic owner.
Pocahontas was a real person, but her life was short, tragic and devoid of all romance.
It is widely documented that Pocahontas really did save John Smith from execution, but she was a mere child and he was a middle aged man.
In repayment for saving Smith, Pocahontas was kidnapped and held hostage for a year, cajoled into converting to Christianity, and given the name Rebecca. She was eventually married off to a man named John Rolfe who was decades older then her.
Rolfe didn't marry for love, oh no, instead he decided he was duty bound to marry this heathen to save her soul for the Lord. The romance of it all!
Pocahontas eventually moved to Britain with her husband where she was displayed as a curiosity and died at the age of 22.
It's not known if she ever painted with all the colors of the wind.
