Its been a while since I first experienced the original Bambi. It wasn’t my favorite dish and I remember it being a bit on the conservative side. There was certainly the undertones of material not suitable for the time and not as much excitement as some other classic Disney characters had on film. Although a favorite of younger, more feminine audiences, it never made it to the top of any guy’s list – probably because of the lack of action.

Well someone thought it was time to cash in on the Bambi franchise and release direct to DVD Bambi II. First of all, now that Bambi’s Mom is out of the picture, he’s ready for some forest frolicking. All the regular characters are back including Flower, Thumper and Friend Owl. Also, Bambi’s father – the Great Prince of the Forest (voiced by the one and only Patrick Stewart) is one of the main characters – teaching Bambi what it really means to be Prince. I don’t want to give anything away but be sure to check out the de-flowering Flower scene. A fantastic three way scene with the Prince, Bambi and Flower as she gets a few more white stripes.

It’s been a while since Bambi’s Mom got capped and his Dad finally comes around and decides he may as well start teaching Bambi the ropes. I’m sure he contemplated the decision to name his only son Bambi but we soon find out why. Mrs. Flower decides to take on some young, tender venison while the Prince is out hunting some new fawn fornication. Unfortunately, Bambi rises to the occasion but can’t please the experienced Mrs. Flower. Her pungent smell just kills the mood for the young stud. So onto the next scene. Deep in the forest Bambi stumbles across a newcomer Ronno. He’s quite the bully and takes Bambi on in a wonderfully colorful scene only the boys could love.

The movie does have some decent writing and funny one-liners. Not typical of your run of the mill let’s make some more money on the next generation of little suckers. The animation is reminiscent of the original and there are even some less adult oriented scenes almost family worthy. Extras include some trivia, a making of featurette, and even a tutorial with a former Disney animator who’s moved onto manga porn. He hints at a new J-Style Bambi III – the Buck who likes to ****

If your looking for some family fun, rent the original. For a good time with a swinging deer, call up Bambi II. Favorite scenes include Thumper loses his pump’. Sad but quick scene where Thumper can’t find his enlarger and has to rely on Faline’s funbags for fluffing up the Thump-machine.
