Bambi Meets Godzilla

Bambi Meets Godzilla is the title of a US 1969 cartoon written, directed, and produced by Marv Newland. Only two minutes long, this cartoon is considered a classic by animation fans because of its unique title, and the single punchline that ends the cartoon almost immediately after the opening credits have finished.

Newland created the entire cartoon himself on a low budget. This cartoon is considered one of the most memorable of the early efforts at independent animation, that is to say, animated cartoons created completely outside the Hollywood studio system.

The stamping foot of Godzilla is seen as a precursor and influence to the famous stamping foot used during the open credits of Monty Python's Flying Circus.
