Flower is a friend of Bambi and Thumper, the husband of Bluebell, the father of Bambi Jr. He is one of the two deuteragonists of the 1942 film Bambi and one of the two tritagonists of it's 2006 midquel Bambi II.
Bambi and Thumper meet the young skunk in the first film while they are exploring. Bambi, who is just learning to talk, calls the skunk a pretty flower. Thumper attempts to correct Bambi, but the skunk says he doesn't mind being called Flower, despite the irony. It is unknown if Flower has any other name, as he is only referred to as Flower. During the winter, a slightly fatter Flower is shown hibernating.
Flower appears as an young adult, and is with Bambi and Thumper when Friend Owl warns them of the dangers of being "twitter-pated". The three walk off with the intention to not let it happen to them, but Flower soon falls for a female skunk named Bluebelle. The end of the film shows that he and Bluebelle have a child to which Flower names his son Bambi after his best friend.
In Bambi II, a midquel taking place after Bambi loses his mother, Flower is usually seen with Bambi and Thumper. He accompanies them to see the groundhog, to determine how long winter will be. He is later seen trying to help Bambi practice being brave. Near the end of the film, he helps Bambi to drive off a hunting dog by spraying it with his fumes.
Flower made a small minor cameo appearance near the end of Who Framed Roger Rabbit with the other toons.
In House of Mouse, Flower makes several appearances always seen with both Bambi and Thumper. He makes a notable appearance in the episode "Pete's House of Villains", where Pete complains that everything about the club stinks, especially Flower. This insult visibly angers Bambi and Thumper and hurts Flower's feelings.
A skunk resembling Flower appears at the beginning of the 2D-animated portions of Enchanted.
Flower looks down huge noisy belly and meets his adopted brother.
- As a child, Flower is often confused for a female because of his name, his voice, and his appearance.
- Like many animals, Flower eats more to gain body fat for hibernation during the winter.
