Thumper is a fictional rabbit character from Disney's animated films Bambi and Bambi II. He is known and named for his habit of thumping his left hind foot. The young adult version of Thumper also appears at the Walt Disney Parks and Resorts as a meetable character.
The character was an important influence upon the development of the movie Bambi which started production with an adult tone which seemed too serious and uncommercial. As voiced by the young actor, four-year-old Peter Behn, the vivacious character of Thumper was expanded from its original minor role and led to a focus upon the young animals in the story.Thumper is Disney's adaptation of Friend Hare from the novel Bambi, a Life in the Woods. The personality and visual appearance of the character was based upon Beatrix Potter's Benjamin Bunny. Unlike real rabbits, Thumper is drawn with paw pads, a feature that most rabbits lack.
Disney Consumer Products started a spin-off franchise, Disney Bunnies, with Thumper as the main character.

    ST Thumper 37mm

    Anybody ever handle one of these before? A young fella at my local gun shop had one based on the AR platform, but I find this one 100x more appealing for reasons that should be obvious.

    I've been asked to post more of my percussion revolvers converted to fire cartridges. These were quite the thing after the Civil War, when manufacturers had lots of parts for cap-and-ball revolvers on hand, but S&Ws patent on the bored-through cylinder was expiring. Both Colt and Remington...

    Big-bore AR Upper?

    From time to time I get the idea to add a big-bore AR upper to the mix. Something, say, .458 SOCOM or .50 Beowulf. As it will be mated to registered SBR lower, length can be anything. Recommendations on this one? Other calibers to consider other than the aforementioned? Any to avoid? Thanks.
