Masked by bright colors, funny voices, and kid-friendly entertainment, it's easy to forget cartoons often feature some of the most violent death scenes in entertainment. Over the years, hundreds of vicious cartoon deaths have gone ignored because they're animated. But think about it: how many times has an animated character died in a way that would be absolutely traumatizing if done in live action?

From the extreme exploits of Wile E. Coyote to Simba watching his father trampled to death by a heard of stampeding buffalo, pop culture is rife with brutal animated death scenes (although Wile E. Coyote seems freakin' indestructible). Read on for some of the most violent cartoon deaths from children's cartoons, and vote up the ones with the most shocking savagery.
