Geno is the son of Bambi and Feline. He is seen at the end of the first movie, and likewise appears at the end of the original ''Bambi'' novel, in which he is stated to look like Bambi. Geno and Gurri are main characters of the novel's sequel, Bambi's Children: A Family in the Forest. Although it is not precised in the movie which fawn is actually Geno, a French Disney book (''Le Enfants de Bambi'') and a Disney comic (''Bambi's Children'') both depict Geno with red eyes, thus assumedly Geno is the red-eyed fawn in the film.

* 'Bambi' film (as fawn): almost identical to how Bambi looked as a fawn; small, long-legged, with tawny brown pelt with darker brown and cream markings, white spots and red eyes.
* 'Les Enfants De Bambi' storybook': Geno looks much like Bambi looked as a fawn, is of a ginger colour with brown, cream, and white markings, and red eyes.
* 'Bambi's Children' comic: As a fawn he looks much like Bambi did as a fawn; he is of a ginger colour with brown, cream and white markings, and red eyes. However the artists often to change his fawn markings throughout the comic (he is sometimes seen without his back stripe, head marking, etc.), probably unintentionally. As an adult, Geno is predominately a ginger-brown colour, with lighter ginger markings and antlers, and a pinkish-white throat 'bib'.

As there was no full body picture of Geno (by himself) from the film to use as his detail picture (only part of him can be seen behind his sibling), we put together a combination of Geno's head and the back legs of Bambi (with the latter's colour altered to match), which was then pasted onto a background from the film.
