In this Disney classic a young deer named Bambi joins his new friends, a rabbit named Thumper and a skunk named Flower, in exploring his forest home.
As a boy, he learns from his doting mother and his father, the Great Prince of the Forest, that there are dangers in the open meadows where hunters can spot the animals. He also meets a beautiful young doe named Faline. As Bambi grows up, he learns that there is tragedy as well as beauty and joy in his forest world and on the path to adulthood.
