Facts about

Bambi was originally supposed to go back to his mother after she was shot and find her in a pool of blood. This idea was scrapped.
The last film for Otis Harlan (the voice of "Mr. Mole"), who died in 1940. Harlan had previously appeared as "Happy the Dwarf" in Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs.
The Disney studios were walking a very precarious line financially, and were constantly on the verge of bankruptcy. A studio strike and, of course, the outbreak of war - which deprived them of their lucrative European market - didn't help matters. Disney was able to secure another loan from the Bank of America, but when both Pinocchio and Fantasia failed at the box office, a lot was riding on Bambi to be a success.
