The world premiere of this film was in the tiny Lincoln Theater in Damariscotta, Maine, USA. Maurice Day, an animator with Disney, brought Felix Salten's book to the attention of Walt Disney, and when Walt decided to make the movie he thanked Maurice by holding the premier in Maurice's home town.

GOOFS:  Continuity Error:  One baby racoon disappars momentarily as it comes out of the water after the fire, instantaneously appearing elsewhere.

Continuity Error:  In the scene where the animals gather around to see new-born Bambi, the spots on Bambi's coat disappear for a moment.

Factual Error:  Bambi's father would not have antlers in the summer, nor would Bambi have any in the spring.
