Bambi is a 1942 Disney movie starring a baby fawn named Bambi, a rabbit named Thumper, and a skunk named Flower (played by Stan Alexander, Sterling Holloway, and Nicky Jones). The movie is about a deer named Bambi, who grows up in the wild. It was nominated for three Academy Awards for Best Sound, Best Song for "Love is a Song" and Original Music Score. The movie is loosely based on Felix Salten's book Bambi, A Life in the Woods. Disney changed Bambi's species from a roe deer to a white-tailed deer since roe deer don't inhabit the United States, and the white-tailed deer is more familiar to Americans.
- Flower: He can call me a Flower if he wants to.
- Thumper: If you can't say somethin' nice [pauses, for drama and because both Thumper and the actor who played him couldn't remember his line], don't say nothin' at all.
- Simple: If you cannot say anything nice, then do not say anything at all.
- Thumper: I'm thumpin'! That's why they call me Thumper!
- Thumper: "Eating greens is a special treat. It makes long ears and great big feet. (to Bambi) But it sure is awful stuff to eat." [whispering] I made that last part up myself.
- Faline: (To her Mother about Bambi) He's kinda bashful, isn't he mama?
- Simple: He is kind of shy, right, mama?
- Great Prince: Your mother can't be with you anymore.
- Simple: Your mother can no longer be with you.
- Faline [as an Adult]: Hello, Bambi. Don't you remember me? I'm Faline.
- Simple: Hello, Bambi. Do you not remember me? I am Faline.
