Origins of the Word “Twitterpated”

Is twitterpated a word? Sure. But was it a word before Bambi? No. Twitterpated seems to have entered the English language through Disney, and as such an exact definition doesn’t really exist (though they are all along the lines of the way Friend Owl describes it). It sounds like gibberish, and maybe that’s all it ever was, but it does look a lot like a portmanteau of “twitter” (meaning nervous excitement) and “addlepated” (meaning confused or senseless), or perhaps just “pated” (relating to the head).
