Bambi characters

Basic Information


Bambi is the main protagonist in both Bambi films.

Throughout half or more of the film, Bambi goes on small adventures, either with his mother or with his friends, Thumper and Flower (a skunk he befriends)

The Great Prince, struggles to father his young son throughout the winter and hopes to soon find an adopted mother for him.

Brief Information:

The Great Prince of the Forest is a White-tailed deer and Bambi's father.

He is the leader of all the animals in the forest, a wise and big stag that everyone respects. He helps Bambi to escape from the forest fire that hunters started by accident. At the end of the movie, he's seen to step back while Bambi takes his place as new Prince of the Forest.

In Bambi II he appears to bring Bambi to the den right after Bambi's mother was shot. He doesn't want to take care of the Young Prince but in the end he will change his mind. He is rather cold, stoic and strict but Bambi's cheerful personality will make him love his son.

Relations: Bambi (son), Bambi's Mother (wife), Faline (daughter-in-law), Geno (grandson), Gurri (granddaughter)

Friends: Friend Owl

Foes: Man, Man's hunting dogs

 

Trivia

No matter how skilled the animator, the Disney cartoonists simply could not draw Bambi's father's antlers accurately. This was because of the very complicated perspectives required. To get round the problem, a plaster cast was made of some real antlers which was then filmed at all angles. This footage was then rotoscoped onto animation cels.

 



Voice actor : Fred Shields / Patrick Stewart



Basic Information

Bambi's mother is a doe who lives in the Great Prince's forest, she is also the Great Prince's mate and at the begining of the film gave birth to Bambi, The Young Prince of the forest. Her name is unknown.

Throughout part of the film's begining Bambi's mother is seen teaching to her son about the rules of their forest, of man, the meadow and allowing him to go and play with Thumper the rabbit and his sisters. Sadly, during winter, while she and Bambi were out on a snowy open field eating the first spring grass, Bambi's mother was shot by man and never seen again, except by her son (in the film Bambi II) when she makes a quick appearance in her son's dream.

Trivia

Bambi was originally supposed to go back to his mother after she was shot and find her in a pool of blood. This idea was scrapped due to it being too gruesome for a family movie.

It is supposed that it was Bambi's mother who is the deer that appears in the very first shot of Beauty and the Beast (1991), and is seen by the character, Kay in The Sword in the Stone (1963) and Shere Khan in The Jungle Book (1967). It is also supposed that the two deer who are shown in The Rescuers (1977) are Bambi and his mother.



Voice actor : Paula Winslowe/Carolyn Hennesy



Basic Information

Thumper is a rabbit and Bambi's best friend since when the Young Prince was born. He was given the name of Thumper because of his famous gesture of thumping his back leg paw almost everywhere. He is one funny, enjoyable and vivacious rabbit, who is often followed by his sister, whose seems to to give him some annoyance, mostly because when he's trying to get rid of them to go around with Bambi and Flower, his mother shows up. Once adult, he's still Bambi's best pal; he formed a family, like his deer friend.

He is one of the main characters of Bambi II as well, helping Bambi to become braver to show The Great Prince that he's one brave son.

Relations: Thumper's Father, Thumper's Mother (parents), Thumper's Sisters, Thumper's Brothers (siblings), Thumper's Daughters, Patter and Hopper (offspring)

Friends: Bambi, Faline, Flower

Foes: Man, Ronno, The Porcupine

 

Trivia

- The character of Thumper (called Bobo in the first draft) does not appear in Felix Salten's original novel. He was added by Walt Disney to bring some much-needed comic relief to the script.

- An asteroid was named after Thumper.

- Six-year-old Peter Behn auditioned with several other children for the voice roles of Mother Rabbit's children. When Behn said the line (in reference to Bambi), "Did the young prince fall down?", a casting director who was watching the audition in another room shouted, "Get that kid out of here! He can't act!" However, the Disney animators who heard the audition tape loved the sound of Behn's voice. Behn was called back to the studio, and the character of Thumper was created largely based on his vocal performance.



Voice actor : Dimitri Rougeul / Emmanuel Karsen



Basic Information


Flower is a young skunk and one of Bambi's friends.

Bambi had mistaken him for a flower the first time they met, Thumper was showing the young deer around and he was teaching him the names of the things he would find around and Flower happened to be in the middle of a flowers field and thus, the Young Prince called him "flower", name that the skunk decided to keep. Once adult, he's the first one of the trio to fall in love and, at the end, he's seen with a child named Bambi Jr.

In Bambi II, he follows Thumper and Bambi around and helps the young deer to become braver. He's rather quiet and calm.

Trivia

"Man" was ranked the #20 villain on the American Film Institute's list of the 100 greatest heroes and villains - the only character on the list not to appear on-screen.

The hunter who shoots Bambi's mother was originally going to be included as a character in the movie. But, for a man to shoot the mother of the hero, he would have to be clearly cruel and villainous for children to accept him. Since Walt Disney didn't want to be seen as maligning hunters as evil, the character was cut and never shown in the final version of the film.
