Movie trailer


The movie starts off really adorable but then it falls apart. Some of the worst animation in Disney history occurs when Dumbo accidentally gets drunk. What the hell is up with those pink elephants? Supremely crappy. Disney has done so much better.
Comments pending.
yep this wasn't isnt too dumb.....Bo
Dumbo: 8/10

The stork delivers a baby elephant to Mrs. Jumbo, a female elephant who is a veteran of the circus. However, when the newborn is ridiculed because of his truly enormous ears and dubbed "Dumbo," Jumbo just can not take it. One day a circus customer over steps his boundaries, Jumbo protects her baby, and punished by being locked away. She is kept separate from Dumbo and the other elephants. Dumbo is left with the other circus elephants that quickly segregate themselves from him. Dumbo's act is relegated to the butt end of jokes with the circus' clowns. Nevertheless, Timothy Q. Mouse sees more then just big ears in Dumbo. He assists Dumbo in achieving his full potential, and once again seeing his mother.

"His disgrace is our own shame."

Ben Sharpsteen (Fantasia and Pinocchio) directs Dumbo. Dumbo is a much underrated Disney classic. The film delivers a life lesson: everyone is different. One should not make fun of someone because they are different. Once they spread their wings and fly, it is a beautiful thing. Sharpsteen began the film in a dark fashion that included thunderstorms. By the end of the film you had dancing elephant, pink elephants, and funny crows. Dumbo had sharp contrasts, but the movie came full circle.

"Those city folks are sure in for a surprise."

Dumbo does more then just teach one of life's most important lessons, it is also fun. The film includes multiple animals. I remember last year while watching this film again for the first time in a long time I had forgotten what a great character Timothy Q. Mouse was. He is the type of character you emphasize to children: "this is the type of human being you want to be, one who sees the good in everyone." The crows are also extremely fun characters, probably my second favorite in the film after Timothy Q. Mouse. They provide additional comic relief. The scene where Timothy Q. Mouse and Dumbo gets drunk, and they see dancing and pink elephants is very similar to the Alice in Wonderland scene with strange creatures.

"Your Mom ain't crazy, just broken hearted."

I believe Dumbo is a must have for your DVD collection. Despite being underrated, it is a very, very solid film. I am not saying it is a top five Disney film, maybe not even one of my top ten favorites (right on the cusp). However, it is an extremely well done and well put together film. I also credit this film as being a film for all ages.

"You're a climax!"

Grade: A
'Dumbo' is one of Disney's classic films featuring an elephant with enormous ears who lives at a circus and who finds an unlikely-but-typical-pairing-for-Disney friend (a mouse, which elephants are supposed to be frightened of). The mouse provides Dumbo with confidence and a 'I think; therefore, I can' attitude to build confidence. (Such as a typical film for childrens' stories.) Dumbo is supposed to be able to fly with the aid of his enormous ears.

One of the best moments in this film is the scene where Dumbo gets drunk. (I'm not sure as to what parents though about this, but I can imagine that it did not go down very well.) Dumbo hallicinates over the drink and sees many marching elephants, 'pink elephants on parade.' This is a haunting and colourful little song featuring a kalidescope of elephants.

Overall, this is a memorable and loveable little film that I recommend.

Dumbo (1941)

Dumbo is a classic! Even though I outgrew cartoons years ago there's no doubt that Dumbo was one of the great Disney movies ever made.
Dumbo is a triumpth. It's touching and as far as kid's films go, it's practically perfect.
