Following my own advice, I watched another animated feature from Disney's golden age. This time it was Bambi, which I hadn't seen in more than 50 years. Originally released in 1942, Bambi seems to have been re-released in 1947, 1957, and 1982. Then there are the never-ending rentals.
I now know how PETA members and sympathizers are created. Three generations of impressionable youth have grown up loving "cute" animals and hating "predatory" humans because of Bambi.
