Bambi (1942)

The story of a young deer growing up in the forest.

One of the true masterpieces of animated cinema with wonderfully detailed and endearing characters, telling a story of essential (if a bit dubious) facts about life and nature and with one of the most traumatizing sequences ever presented in a kids' movie.

Bambi****: "Anthropomorphic cartoon feature, one of Disney's most memorable and brilliant achievements, with a great comic character in Thumper the rabbit and a climactic forest fire sequence which is genuinely thrilling. A triumph of the animator's art."

Maltin****: "Walt Disney's moving an exquisitely detailed animated feature...An extraordinary achievement, with the memorably endearing character of Thumper stealing every scene he's in."
