When I was little, I had cassettes tapes of Disney movies. I watched "Bambi" in Chinese for some reason. There was this scene where Bambi's mother died (sorry to remind you of that if you watched the movie), and he tries to find his mother. Then, Bambi's father comes and says that his mother died.

I had a friend come to my house and play one time, and he said, "Mama! Mama!" 
And then I said "Your mother died" in Chinese, just like how it was in the Chinese dub of Bambi.

This was around the age of 4-7.

well this is rather dark.

Did you know, in the original it was never said, that Bambi's Mother died?

"Your mother can't be with your anymore" was what Bambi's father said. Obviously, his mother has been shot by a hunter, but some innocent kids won't figure it out.

What is it with Walt Disney and killing off mothers?

Like I said, they didn't said, that his mother is dead.
It is just that in other 2D animated Disney movies, you can see a deer, that looks like Bambi's mom. :|

the reason why most of walt disney's character's mother died is because, walt disney happened to be in that state too, disney's mother was killed by some kind of poisoning, (can't remember what is the exact cause of death), the incident influence most of walt disney's characters

for example, cinderella has no mom, ariel grew up with her dad and her sisters and so on, but there are some of the characters that lived happily under their parents' care
