A true Disney classic, detailing the often harsh education of a newborn deer and his friends in the forest. Proves that Disney animation was—and still is—the best to be found.

Based very loosely on the book by Felix Salten. 69m/C VHS, DVD. D: David Hand;W: Larry Morey; M: Frank Churchill, Edward Plumb; V: Bobby Stewart, Peter Behn, Stan Alexander, Cammie King, Donnie Dunagan, Hardie Albright, John Sutherland, Tim Davis, Sam Edwards, Sterling Holloway, Ann Gillis, Perce Pearce.
