Sex & Nudity

  • 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.

Violence & Gore

  • A frightened bird flies away and gets shot. We see the bird fall to the ground, headless. Not bloody, but shocking.
  • 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.

Profanity

Alcohol, Drugs & Smoking

Frightening & Intense Scenes

  • Creepy music plays whenever man is coming closer. Though we never see man, it's implied in a frightening way and may be scary to children.
  • The scene where the frightened bird gets shot may shock children, especially seeing it's head gone (though it's not bloody).
  • Even though this movie is G-rated, there are some very frightening and intense scenes in the movie. The rating system was COMPLETELY different back in 1942, the year this movie was released. Back then, it was OK to show these kind of scenes in kids movies as long as there was no profanity, no sex, and no nudity. If released today, this movie would definitely get at least a PG.
  • It's a bit dark,intense,scary,violent and upsetting 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 or lava.
