Dumbo has always been one of my favorites. How can anyone not fall in love with a sweet little elephant with big ears? I love the message included and it's sad that bullying has become such a fixture of our society for so long. The animation and music are wonderful, and of course the best scene is the one featuring the song "Baby Mine". Very heartfelt and touching.

A classic.

One of Disney's more charming animated features. The little elephant with the big ears has a mouse buddy who helps him with his self-esteem problem. Moves right along. The pink elephants on parade dream sequence is a special visual treat!

The magic feather must have given the magic that is within this movie. I'm surprised Disney was able to make such a memorable classic that is Dumbo when they were first started out making movies. It was beutiful watching Dumbo and his mother mingle on screen. The care they have towards one and another is so beutiful. It also really conveys how sad Dumbo was when he visited his mother in the clink. You see these two be together so long, now seeing them be forced away from one another makes a tear come from even the most heartless person on earth. The side characters were fun to. Timothy the mouse was such a fun to see on screen. It was so nice to watch him defend Dumbo when his mom was not around. He could have been with Dumbo just for the sack of becoming famous by exploiting Dumbo's ear flying, but instead the filmakers chose the right choice of making Timothy a kind caregiver. The Ravens at the end of the movie were fun to watch as well. I heard that Disney got a little too stereotypical when creating them, but you gotta admit it was nice seeing them help Dumbo and Timothy after they became guilty of bullying them. The one upset of this movie I found was pretty obvious, but worth saying. WHAT THE HECK WAS THAT PINK ELEPHANTS SCENE! I know it was supposed to carry the plot along, but geez! Little kids could get extreamly traumatized by that.! But even with this side problem, Dumbo 1941 is high flying with fun for the whole family.

The elephant that could fly...... "Dumbo" is a definite Disney cartoon favorite of mine. It is a real family classic.

This is a charming, beautifully animated story about an outcast, baby circus-elephant with big ears who learns that he can fly. (Hey! - Like - Wow!)

"Dumbo" has everything - From personable animals, to a poignant story, to a truly happy ending. This wonderful movie is good fun for young and old, alike. And, it can still invoke a tear, or two, in the right places.

Released back in 1941 (at the height of WW2) - Dumbo is the fourth animated feature film produced by Disney Studios. At only 64 minutes - It is one of Disney's shortest animated features. This film was completed on a budget of just under $1 million.

Dumbo's simple story about a semi-anthropomorphic elephant is loosely based upon the book written by Helen Aberson and illustrated by Harold Pearl.

As the story goes - Jumbo Jr. (the new baby elephant at the circus) quickly finds himself cruelly nicknamed "Dumbo" (as in "dumb"), as he is ridiculed for his big, floppy ears.

Dumbo soon discovers that he is, in fact, capable of flying by using his big ears as wings.

Throughout most of the film - Dumbo's only true friend (aside from his mother) is the mouse, Timothy, which is a relationship parodying the stereotypical animosity between mice and elephants.

Now 88 years old - All-in-all - Dumbo is enjoyable family entertainment from yesteryear.

I don't mind the crows being like Africans, but what bothers me is the cartoon characters smoking and drinking. And then Dumbo and his mouse friend looks all happy while they're drunk, so it encourages young viewers to drink alcohol as well. Then there's disturbing hallucinations.

Such a sweet movie! Together with Bambi, this is the epitome of children's cartoons. There are outdated and awkward racist stereotypes of negroes in some of the characters (the crows), and an extraordinary sequence of a drunken hallucination about three quarters of the way through the film. Ultimately its delightful and heartwarming.
