Ep. 10 – Man is in the forest

Bambi (1942) – Part Two.

We start out talking about spring and how exhausting some of these romantic tropes tend to be, but like the movie we quickly move into some of the really scary parts – the hunters and the forest fire. Along the way we sidetrack about anime for a little bit, try not to spend too long on the mating habits of white tailed deer, and talk about how much we love the song Little April Shower. All in all, we definitely recommend this one.

Next time, we’re going to be talking about the Package Films aka the movies Disney put out to keep the studio afloat during the rest of WWII.
