Thumper appeared in the movie "Bambi," 1942. Paws down the most adorable movie rabbit, Thumper gets his name from the rapid thumping of his left hind foot. Angelically voiced by the then-4-year-old Peter Behn, Thumper is Bambi's best friend in Disney's animated masterwork. His appearance and personality were based on Beatrix Potter's Benjamin Bunny.
