I find number 25 interesting--the new animators not believing the old animators were not on drugs when they thought up the pink elephant sequence. It shows the world that drugs are not the answer to creativity. We can be creative by just using the minds God gave us.

How many licks does it take to get to the center of a baby raccoon? Well if you own the VHS copy of Bambi, and maybe the first DVD, you will know. Near the end of the movie where the animals are coming to the shore of the island to escape the fire, you will see a mother raccoon licking her baby. One the third or fourth lick the baby raccoon disappears. They fixed it in later releases.

Interesting all credits were given except for the guy singing the song. Not Jimminy Cricket but old vaudeville "Ukelele (sp?) Ike" or Cliff Edwards in real life.
