31 Best 'Bambi' Quotes From The Disney Classic

'Bambi' is an old Disney classic resplendent with sayings about love and friendship.

'Bambi' is one of the oldest Disney films having been released by RKO Radio Pictures in the year 1942 and is the fifth animated feature that Walt Disney had produced.

It is directed by talented directors, James Algar, David hand, Graham Heid, Paul Satterfield and more and is loosely based on the book entitled 'Bambi, a Life in the Woods' by Felix Salten who is an Austrian author as well as a hunter. The plot revolves around 'Bambi' a young male white-tailed deer who is very attached to his mother and his coming of age from childhood to adulthood, including difficult challenges he faces along the way.

Throughout the plot, 'Bambi' grows up, makes friends along the way, falls in love, becomes The Great Prince of the Forest as per his destiny, protects the forest animals from a wildfire, and eventually ends up becoming a father to twins who are the future Great Princes of The Forest. The name 'Bambi' itself means "baby deer." It is highly appropriate as a chosen name for our titular for the character of 'Bambi'. Considering how the plot follows from his life from being born to adolescence and then adulthood, where he has been deemed the next Great Prince of the Forest who has the responsibility of protecting the forest and the animals in it, the title and his name go hand-in-hand.

The entire movie is very heart-warming and filled with some of the most beautiful sayings from Disney. Here is a list of some of the best quotes from 'Bambi' that will warm your heart, or if you are Thumper, your great big feet!
