Bambi (1942)

David Hand, James Algar, Samuel Armstrong, Graham Heid, Bill Roberts, Paul Satterfield and Norman Wright direct Donnie Dunagan, Hardie Albright and John Sutherland in this animated Disney tale of a young fawn learning about the wonders of the forest and the dangers of man as he grows up.

Like Fantasia, I admire the beauty and craft. Like Fantasia, I wouldn’t rush to rewatch it. Aside from Bambi’s most infamous sequences, there’s very little here that ain’t either whiny or vapid. Really feels aimed at tots – I know it is a cartoon. And having said all that, the only character I looked forward to popping in and out was the excessively cutesy wootsy skunk, Flower.
