You will find it associated with "Thumper"
quote:
Thumper, he was a cute little rabbit, asked the mama deer what she was going to call her baby.
She smiled and looked down at her son and then at Thumper.
"I am going to call him Bambi," she said.
Thumper stood there for a moment, thumping his foot.
"That's a funny name", he said at last.
Thumper's mommy scolded him, very gently.
"Thumper", she said, "What did your father tell you this morning?"
Thumper hung his head down, just a bit and replied, "If you can't say something nice, don't say nothin' at all!"
And you know, that is really what we should all remember. We should always remember to say nice things about each other.
