Saddest Scene
The Velveteen Rabbit about to be burned from ?The Velveteen Rabbit? ? This scene breaks my heart every time I see it. It details the Velveteen Rabbit about to be burned after his owner, a small boy, catches scarlet fever and it tears me inside about how the family was forced to burn the Velveteen Rabbit after the scarlet fever.

Runner Up - John Henry's death from ?John Henry?

Scariest Scene
Icabod Crane being chased by the Headless Horseman from ?The Legend of Sleepy Hollow? ? This frightening scene from ?The Legend of Sleepy Hollow? is so effectively done and full of pure drama as the Headless Horseman is portrayed as a frightening shadow that keeps chasing after Icabod Crane that it simply gives off the whole ?will the Headless Horseman catch Icabod??

Runner Up - The storm hitting the countryside from ?The Fisherman and his Wife?

Most Amazing Scene
Pecos Bill riding the Cyclone from ?Pecos Bill? ? The scenery of how Pecos Bill rode the cyclone and how the cyclone caused destruction around the desert was truly captured wonderfully and Ry Cooder?s intense country music made this scene truly amazing! I was literally on the edge of my seat just seeing Pecos Bill ride the cyclone!
