Flower's Revenge

There is a billboard up now announcing the straight-to-DVD release of Bambi II.

Wow. Who knew there was an untapped demand for the further adventures of animated deer, skunks, rabbits and other assorted woodland ne’er-do-wells?

Personally, I find it hard to care, but then again, I don’t presume that I’m the target audience. Still, as many folks as claim to having been emotionally scarred by the original, it does seem an odd choice for a sequel.

And really, other than hanging around the watering hole, comparing battle scars, bragging about your close brushes with death and telling bear jokes, what else is there for a young deer to learn?

Unless...there’s been a toxic spill at the watering hole which kills all the other animals, but somehow transforms Bambi, giving him awesome super powers. And then he’s able to hunt down those responsible and ... and .... and blackmail them into setting him up with a private estate and a dozen or so young does who do nothing but stretch and simper by the pool, fawning (if you'll pardon the expression) over Bambi and laughing at all his jokes.

Yeah. I might watch that.
