Cue the aww! This fawn and bunny duo adorably frolic together in a scene that could be straight out of a Disney movie.

The playful friends were found romping around the idyllic setting of the Lula W. Dorsey Museum at Estes Park Center in Colorado. The duo has now fittingly been nicknamed Bambi and Thumper from the beloved 1942 classic Disney animation “Bambi.”

The two-minute video shows the fawn, who still has its spots, and baby bunny running and frolicking around the lawn. The fawn gingerly approaches the bunny multiple times, which eventually causes the bunny to start excitedly jumping up in the air.

And what is more adorable than a baby bunny jumping up and down? Its deer friend trying to do the same exact thing. It’s almost like the young fawn is telling its bunny companion, “Watch what I can do!”

The couple, who volunteers at the YMCA of the Rockies, recorded the playmates playing with each other, which in total lasted over half an hour. The video that was posted to the YMCA of the Rockies Facebook page has garnered over 1.3 million views.

According to CBS News, staff members “reportedly claim to have seen the pair playing together before.”  That means anyone who visits has a chance to catch the magic that is the real-life Bambi and Thumper!

Now if only there was a skunk somewhere…
