Added DiffLines:

* BrutishBulls: Ferdinand himself represents a humorous and deliberate inversion; by his kind's standards, he grows into an enormous adult with large, powerful haunches, is black as pitch and has an impressive pair of horns. However, he is a completely gentle soul that would never hurt a fly.

A bull named Ferdinand is a gentle soul. While all the other bulls like to butt heads and fight, Ferdinand wants only to smell the flowers. The great ambition of most of the bulls is to compete in the bullfighting ring in Madrid, but not Ferdinand. However, when the bullfighting scouts come to inspect the bulls, Ferdinand gets stung by a bee. The rampage he goes on leads the scouts to believe he is prime bullfighting material, and they take him to the ring, marketing him as "Ferdinand the Fierce". But he remains a gentle soul.

to:

* BeeAfraid
BeastlyBloodsports: Bullfighting. Although since this is a children's cartoon, Ferdinand doesn't get killed as would happen in RealLife.[[note]]Indeed, in RealLife already wounded bulls sometimes flee in terror from matadors.[[/note]]
* BlowingARaspberry
BeeAfraid: Ferdinand's terror of a bee is what gets him incorrectly tabbed as a prime candidate for bullfighting.
* ContinuityCameo
BlowingARaspberry: A blink-and-you'll-miss-it part. When the crowd shows dismay and anger at Ferdinand for smelling the flowers, one of the horses can be seen sticking his tongue out at him. The matador also blows a raspberry at Ferdinand when trying to taunt him to fight.
* ContinuityCameo: Yep, that's [[Disney/SnowWhiteAndTheSevenDwarfs Snow White]] attending the bullfight.
* CreatorCameo: Walt Disney himself provides the voice of Ferdinand's mom. [[Creator/DisneysNineOldMen Milt Kahl]] voices Ferdinand as a calf.
* FacePalm: The matador does this when Ferdinand smells the flower instead of fighting.
* MediumAwareness: Ferdinand's mom frowns when the narrator calls her a cow.
* StorybookOpening: Not in the original short, but added when this cartoon was aired in the 1950s on ''Series/WaltDisneyPresents''.
* TorosYFlamenco: Typical Hollywood portrait of Iberia, centered on bullfighting.
