The story of a young deer growing up in the forest.
A test animation of baby Bambi stuck on a fallen tree-trunk was sufficiently charming to convince Walt Disney to make the film.
Wake up, wake up!
During the forest fire, the chipmunk's friend turns from a grey squirrel to a red squirrel. He returns to grey for the end of the film.
The RKO logo is in dark teal on a lighter teal background, and there are branches with leaves (in the same dark teal color) surrounding the logo.
The original theatrical release had the RKO print logo at the front of the film. On the 1989 and 1997 American VHS, the "Walt Disney presents" title card is the start of the film. For the 2005 Region 1 DVD release, the theme has a slight musical extension to fill in a new time gap made by a shorter version of the Walt Disney logo, which is perfectly in sync with the music. After the logo ends, the Walt Disney title card appears, and the film starts normally. It is unknown if this musical extension is in the original theatrical release, though it can be heard on some older Super 8 film prints.
