Bambi

Continuity mistake: After the great fire scene there is a racoon that drags her baby to shore and begins cleaning it. A few seconds later the baby has jumped across to the other side of his father and siblings, but the mother does not stop licking.

Continuity mistake: When Thumper is scolded for poking fun at Bambi, he places both arms behind his back and recites a quote from his father. But in the following shot where Bambi rises to his feet and walks away, Thumper's arms are now instantly out in front of him. (00:10:25)

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.

Question: Is it true that Disney made this movie as a way to protest guns and/or hunting?

Chosen answer: No. As with most Disney films, it's based on a book, in this case a 1923 Austrian book entitled Bambi: A Life in the Woods. There's no evidence that the book was chosen for any more than the quality of the story.
