Master set-up of Bambi.
Young Bambi confusedly stares up at the birds that are acting quite strangely. Little does Bambi know that these birds are “twitterpated” and soon enough he too will become ensconced in a young spring romance.
The artwork measures approximately 11" x 11". The background appears at 31:39 in the film at the end of the Meadow scene. We believe that the background was originally Pan and had overlay effect cels as it pans to this point where the part appears in the film. As is slightly visible in the image, there is a very faint line around the background image where a previous matte may have been--the second image shows where this line is. As visible in the image, there is evidence of paint separation in Bambi's legs and some paint loss in his ear. As the character is trimmed and applied to the background, we do not recommend restoration. There is evidence of paint mottling in the two birds.
