People die, though not as much in children's cartoons. For a long time, BS&P did not allow for depicting death on-screen (though they were less strict with corpses). A lot of people faced ambiguous deaths, trapped in a fiery blaze or explosion, or falling of a cliff. This list those who are confirmed deceased on-screen, are mentioned as deceased, or have an ambiguous death.
