The animals appear to be not wearing any garments, which can influence children.

later on when the animals, Bambi, Thumper and Flower are all grown up they each become "twitterpated" in which they each experience intense feelings and an attraction to the opposite gender of their species. Thumper thumps uncontrollably when he is approached and touched by a female rabbit.

Flower turns rigid and blushes before falling over when a female skunk touches him on the nose.

Bambi at first avoids Faline,but after getting his antlers stuck in a tree branch she licks him on the cheek, he is then shown with Faline in an altered sense of reality jumping through the clouds.


Several animals are shot by hunters and/or poachers but no blood is shown.

There's a scene where another deer tries to steal Faline from Bambi so they fight.


The scene where Bambi's mother is shot and killed may scare smaller children. The death is very dramatic.

It's really scary for an animated Disney movie. The forest fire scene can be intense for smaller children, but Bambi escaped the forest safely.

Lightning can frighten smaller children

There is an intense scene in which a large group of the hunters' dogs (who are depicted with glowing eyes and very sharp, scary looking teeth) are chasing an adult Bambi and his Father through the forest, eventually injuring Bambi. This scene can be very frightening for young children, especially for those who may have a fear of dogs or wolves etc.

There is a large forest fire which engulfs the animals' homes, causing them to cry out in fear and flee in a frenzy. This may scare young children, especially those afraid of fire.

Total: 8/50

BBFC - (U): infrequent very mild threat.
