You Were Warned...


Lilo & Stitch (2002): Chris Sanders and Dean DeBlois’ silly little alien cartoon that is actually a HEARTBREAKING ODE to the FRAGILITY OF FAMILY.

How To Train Your Dragon (2010): Chris Sanders and Dean DeBlois’ silly little dragon cartoon that is actually a HEARTBREAKING ODE to the FRAGILITY OF FAMILY.

The Croods (2012): Chris Sanders and Kirk De Micco’s silly little cavemen cartoon that is actually…

…yeah, you better bring some Kleenex.

  1. Even outside of the family scenes, I almost cried when poor Douglas rolled out of the tree, and again when Chunky snuggles up to Grug in the cave.

    1. You're totally right about that!

      Not to keep going, "Chris Sanders, Chris Sanders, Chris Sanders," but CHRIS SANDERS certainly does have a knack for human/pet relationships. From Lilo's P.O.V., most of L&S is her training her new 'puppy.' And some of the best scenes in How To Train Your Dragon are watching Hiccup learn to 'train' (in reality: BEFRIEND) Toothless.

      I'm really glad you posted that comment, Kendra. I never would have made that (seemingly obvious) connection without it!
