Flower is a skunk character from Disney's animated movie Bambi voiced by Stan Alexander, Sterling Holloway, and Nicky Jones. He also appeared in Bambi II, and is widely considered to be one of the world's most famous skunks, rivaled only by Warner Brothers Pepe le Pew. He is very popular in France .
Role in movies [change]
In the first Bambi movie, Bambi is exploring with Thumper and meets a butterfly. Bambi thinks it's a bird but Thumper tells him what it is. Bambi then comes across a patch of flowers and calls one of the flowers butterfly. Thumper explains this, and says that the flowers are pretty. He then shows Bambi how to sniff the flowers. Bambi then comes nose-to-nose with a skunk which he calls flower. Thumpers rolls over laughing, and tries to explain, but the skunk says he likes the name. The name then sticks and it is never revealed what his real name is. In Bambi II, Flower has a fear of turtles. Flower and Thumper try to help teach Bambi how to be brave for his father.
Although Flower was meant to have a big role in Bambi's life, his part in the movie turned out to be only a minor one. His role in the first movie suffers somewhat from the fact that Thumper very much stole the show. Even in Bambi II, where he had considerably more screentime, he was still not in the movie as much as Thumper. He is lovable, shy, and very effeminate. Although somewhat of a scaredy-cat, he will do what he can when the going gets tough.
Because of his (somewhat) feminine nature, (i.e., blushing, giggling, wanting Bambi to call him flower "if he wants to") Flower is often mistaken to be a girl.
