 But what happened to them.

Standard fairy-tale role for mothers
a. get killed
b. get locked up

(Of course, this could be a deepp symbolic representation of the trapped and constrained life of the standard 1950's American ohousewfe and mother, but somehow, I think not....)

Is it my imagination or is there a general shortage of females in the Walt lifetime films?
