Bambies (バンビーズ): (also The Bambies ザ・バンビーズ) A special group of ken-1 girls (usually around eight or nine) chosen as regulars on Takarazuka TV spots. The Bambies were begun in March of 1969 with the TV show "Takarazuka Six-Oh-Oh", which featured small skits. When the time slot was changed from 6 o'clock to 4, the name changed to "Takarazuka Young Variety". In April of 1971, it became "The Takarazuka".

The first group lasted three months before changing, and afterwards the groups lasted for six month slots up until the tenth group. From then on it was a year-long rotation. in 1978, "The Takarazuka" ended, and thereafter the Bambies made appearances on TV dramas up until September of 1979. There were fifteen groups in all.
