A deer and a rabbit were seen frolicking in a Colorado national park last week, and luckily parkgoers were nearby to capture the adorable moment.

YMCA of the Rockies posted the video to Facebook on Tuesday, crediting the clip to two volunteers at the Estes Park Center, Steve and Vicky Johnsen.

The animals were quickly compared to famous Disney characters Bambi and Thumper, and local NBC News affiliate KUSA-TV reported that the two played for nearly 40 minutes outside of the Lula W. Dorsey Museum.

More than one staffer said they've seen the duo hopping around together before.

E! Online reported that Donnie Dunagan, who played the voice of the Disney deer in the 1942 animated film, went on to become a decorated U.S. Marine.

The now 80-year-old veteran didn't tell anyone about his past voice work for many years, however. He especially didn't want his fellow Marines calling him "Maj. Bambi."

"Most of the image in people's minds of Bambi was a little frail deer, not doing very well, sliding around on the ice on his belly," he said in a recent interview. "I love it now — when people realize, 'This old jerk, he's still alive and was Bambi.' And I wouldn't take anything for it, not a darn thing for it."
