Little does he know, Seymour waited for Fry to return, and we as an audience had to endure a montage of the dog waiting outside the pizza shop until it eventually dies.
The second saddest thing I watched as a child was the episode of Futurama where Fry goes to dig up his brother’s grave after finding out he stole his identity, only to find out that it was actually his nephew, who was named after Fry.
But enough about sad Futurama moments, because this article is about a website that will stop you from seeing that kind of thing. Well, the former, at least.
Called Does the Dog Die, the website pretty much does exactly what you’d think it does, and warns you about the potential demise of cinematic mutts.
Along with films, the website also covers TV shows, books, comics and more, and isn’t totally restricted to dog-related tragedies.
Other animals, like cats and horses (didn’t need those examples, did you? You know what other animals are) are covered, as well head-crushings, vomiting, gore, and any of the horrific things – types of abuse – that many are triggered by.
Santa turning out to not be real is even on there. They’re very thorough over at Does the Dog Die.
On the surface, this may just sound like a whacky website that exists for a bit of fun, but thanks to the expansion of topics covered, many, many people are able to avoid things that can be dangerously triggering and distressing for them.
It’s actually a very nice idea, and also goes some way to stopping people complaining on Twitter to film companies because they didn’t know what they were in for when they started watching something.
Hey Does the Dog Die, does the dog die in I Am Legend? Oh boy… yeah. Yeah it does. Sorry.
