Why we love it
"Bambi" is an early Disney triumph, showcasing some of the most beautifully detailed animation ever done. The story itself mingles moments of playfulness with high drama to form a timeless masterpiece. Though some younger viewers may be frightened by the pivotal hunting scene, "Bambi" remains a worthy introduction to vintage Disney animation.
