On this day in Disney history, 75 years ago, theatergoers got their very first look at “Bambi,” the timeless coming-of-age story of Bambi and his forest friends.

Released in 1942, “Bambi” was Disney’s first full-length animated film that focused on an animal cast of characters, living in nature. The film introduced not only Bambi, but his several of his beloved forest friends: Thumper the rabbit, Flower the skunk, and Faline, a doe. “Bambi” would go on to receive three Academy Award nominations, including nods for Best Song (“Love is a Song”), Best Score and Best Original Music Score.

In honor of today’s milestone, enjoy the downloadable wallpaper below, which was created by Disney artist Jason Ratner.
