Hello, I’m The Cool Kat, a twenty-six year old guy from Mississippi. I’m a sci-fi nerd, a superhero fan and an animation enthusiast, and this is where I talk about my favorite topics. Be warned though, I am only an amateur blogger.

    They allowed Littlefoot to grieve for his dead mother, where he not only saw his mother’s dead body (unlike Bambi), but he also saw her slowly dying right in front of him.

    With Simba, he saw his dad’s still form on the ground and thought he was sleeping. After trying three times to get him to wake up– Which are really emotional, by the way.– he began to realize that his father was dead.

    Kimba (The White Lion), on the other hand, knew by the drowning of the boat that his mother was on, that she was dead. . . And he has all the reassuring time to grieve, like Simba.

    For Bambi. . . his mother’s death was so sudden and immediate that he never had time to turn back and see his mother’s dead body, nor see her dying right in front of him. For every family watching that scene in the early 40’s, it was truly a sad day.

    I remember this clip from the Making Of Bambi: A Prince Is Born documentary, where these different animator historians, are talking about the scene with the death of Bambi’s mother: “Simba had to go out and . . . truly grieve over the death of his father.” Similar to Kimba and Littlefoot. “And Bambi, his mother’s taken away, and he’s never left to grieve or talk about it or deal with it.”

    Grieving, Talking about, Dealing with it.

    Littlefoot (in a really emotional scene) grieved over his mother’s death, he talked about it to Rooster; but it took Littlefoot a long time to deal with it. Simba, like Littlefoot, grieved over his father’s death and dealt with it; but he didn’t “want to talk about it.” Kimba grieved when his mother died by drowning in the sinking boat that she was caged in, he wasn’t able to talk about it or deal with it until probably later on. . .

    Bambi, on the other hand. . . Everything happened so fast for him, that he never got to experience what it’s like to grieve And that’s more depressing.
