Mine would have to be Modern Love-The Return of Nano. His first appearance was enough, but when I watched this one I actually cried. I always felt really bad for Nano and in this one especially. Harry was awful to him and only had any affection towards him because of the money Nano helped him steal and when Nano came back, the first thing he did pretty much was go look for him so he could try and have a family like he saw on the TV. It didn't take long for me to cry either, when he broke into the prison being all "Daddy! Daddy!" I was so sad ;;
The Nano episodes are awful (I cried so bad)... If I ever rewatch the 2003 series I'll be skipping those.

It was kinda sad. Moreso disturbing, seeing his descent into madness. Kinda like Cronenberg's Fly movie. Which is rather fitting since Brendal does turn into a fly and Baxter becomes a Fly in 2 of his 4 incarnations.

I find Tales of Leo to be sad. I didn't like seeing Leo in bad condition.

Same here. I can think of a few others that I found sad: Rogue In The House (Part 2), Dragon's Brew, insane In The Membrane. But none come any where close to SAINW.

^^ I didn't think it was that bad because I mean it was in a future that never happened.

I have the same opinion of SAINW. The turtles died but they weren't the turtles that I actually care about.

That's not necessarily true. It didn't happen to our version of the turtles, but those events did happen to an alternate reality's version of the turtles.

I get what you're saying, but that doesn't make me find the events any less horrible.

^^ That's the thing about different timelines, it's a great way to have the same characters but have them g through different events that essentially make them totally different at the end of the day. Almost every incarnation has dealt with this. The exception being Image, the movies and the Nicktoon.

What also adds to the sadness of Baxter is that while he did have a promising beginning, he ended up using his talent for bad people like Shredder.

Saddest moment for me was the ending of the first Nano episode when Nano got destroyed and the thief who was like a father to him began crying.

That moment really got to me when I first saw it as a kid, I remember becoming very teary eyed and not being able to speak properly.

Same as it Never Was, even if it was an alternate future that never happened.

Insane in the Membrane was a bit sad as well.

Also, there's something sad about the Rat king episode. I can't put my finger on what it is.

The episode that was dedicated to Jack Kibry' "The King" comes to mind. In it's entirety, it's not a sad episode but the ending got me sad because Don made a friend in Kirby, but when Don gets one final push back into the real world, the portal closes for good in his attempt to save Kirby; leaving Kirby behind in that other world.

That other world is probably symbolic for Kirby being in Heaven or someplace like that, considering the real Jack Kirby is dead. I guess that's what makes it sad.

Wedding Bells and Bytes is very saddening, just knowing that it is the end of the show (and the potential of a possible season 8 )

Also included: Honeycutt's funeral and Same as it Never Was
