Factual error: When we first see Bambi as an adult, it is meant to be the same year (no revolving of the seasons or such to denote time passing). Yet the adult Bambi seems to be three years old as his antlers have two 'tines' or forks on them. In a male deer's first winter he grows two straight horn-like antlers on his head, which is the first 'tine'. After this the number of tines on the deer's antlers increase one with each year. So, counting the year when Bambi was a fawn and had no antlers, he has the body of a 3-year-old deer. Yet judging by the story's progression and the relative ages of Thumper and Flower (remember, smaller animals mature faster) Bambi is only 2 years old.
Continuity mistake: When Bambi falls in love with Faline (both of them are grown up), her eyes are blue. In the next few scenes, her eyes are brown, then they turn back into blue once Bambi and Faline's twins are born.
Young Bambi: What happened, Mother? Why did we all run?
Bambi's Mother: Man was in the forest.
Trivia: When the wildlife of the forest celebrate the start of a new spring season at the start of the film, a bird feeds her three baby birds a small group of berries that resembles a "Hidden Mickey."
