    Bambi Animation Drawing (Walt Disney, 1942). "Come on, say 'bird', say 'bird!'" Little Bambi receives encouragement from his new forest friends in this iconic scene from Disney's fifth animated feature film. This is a wonderfully large image of the young Prince of the Forest as he is taught to speak by his new friend Thumper. Bambi pauses for an instant, looks up quizzically at the bluebirds flitting around his head, and then lets loose with a resounding, "BIIIIRD!!" This classic was voted #3 in the top 10 animated films by the American Film Institute - and brought the art of animation to new heights in its realistic depictions of animals and natural phenomena. The film holds a special place in American consciousness; Bambi and his friends were even "loaned out" to the US Forest Service in a public campaign against forest fires - and eventually led to the creation of Smokey Bear. This original animation drawing of Bambi measures approximately 5" x 6" and is rendered in graphite and red pencil on 12 field 5-peghole animation paper. The piece is matted and framed under Plexiglas with a mat opening of 12.5" x 10.5" in a 19" x 17.5" frame. This is an adorable image of the title character from one of Disney's most beloved films. The paper shows minor handling and some creases; otherwise condition is Fine. Frame is sold as-is.
