Photo: ‘Bambi’ Stars Meet for First Time on ABC’s ‘The View’

DONNIE DUNAGAN, PETER BEHN (ABC/Donna Svennevik)Among the guests on the March 4th edition of the ABC morning talkshow, ‘The View,’ were Bambi voice actors Donnie Dunagan and Peter Behn who, as children, provided the voices of Bambi and Thumper respectively.

As opposed to live action films where actors do physically perform together for the most part, in animation, roles are usually performed and recorded separately. This allows for individual lines to be recorded over and over for optimal delivery choices, but inherently doesn’t allow the actors to play off of each other.

They say it’s a man’s world, and normally the opinionated hosts of ABC’s “The View” would strongly disagree.

So, for the first time in the 13-year-history of “The View,” five men will consecutively co-host for the entire hour (11:00 a.m.-12:00 noon, ET).

May 17 – Barbara’s friend, Bryant Renfroe (“The View”)
