Peter Behn was born on 24 October 1934 in Prescott, Arizona to Harry Behn (1889-1973), a screenwriter and children”s author, and his wife Alice Behn (née Lawrence, 1905-1989).

He is best known for providing the voice of the young Thumper in the film Bambi. His family lived in Arizona and Greenwich, Connecticut. After graduating, he went onto attend Yale University and serve two years in the United States Army.

He was 4 years old when he voiced the role. As an adult, Behn moved to Warren, Vermont in 1964, where he worked as a real estate broker.

Behn retired to Park City, Utah in 1997, where he lives in a passive solar home.
