Walt Disney Classics Collection: Thumper & His Sisters

A couple of days ago, we shared Walt Disney Classics Collection Bambi and Flower pieces. Today, we have 2 other sculpts from the Bambi set, Thumper and his unnamed sisters.

Thumper measures 3″ high:

The figure is titled “Hee! Hee! Hee!…”, because, if memory serves, Thumper finds it amusing that Bambi has referred to his young skunk friend as a flower.

I think the paint on these actually give a feeling of texture. Just beautiful!

For the first production year, 1992, the Walt Disney Classics Collection featured a steamboat wheel mark, honoring Mickey Mouse’s 1928 debut in Steamboat Willie. There is also a special Bambi 50th Anniversary mention on this piece, that the Bambi and Flower pieces I have do not carry.

I mentioned at the top of the post that this other sculpt features Thumpers unnamed sisters. Well, doing a Google search, we find that Thumper has 4 sisters, named Trixie, Daisy, Ria, and Tessie. But, unfortunately, there is no indication as to which 2 are portrayed here.

Titled “Hello, Hello There”

This also has the steamboat wheel mark, indicating it was made in 1992, as well as the 50th Anniversary tag.

I hope you’ve enjoyed this look at a very early WDCC series!
