With the help of a smooth talking tomcat, a family of Parisian felines set to inherit a fortune from their owner try to make it back home after a jealous butler kidnaps them and leaves them in the country.
The stork delivers a baby elephant to Mrs. Jumbo, veteran of the circus, but the newborn is ridiculed because of his truly enormous ears and dubbed "Dumbo". After being separated from his mother, Dumbo is relegated to the circus' clown acts; it is up to his only friend, a mouse, to assist Dumbo to achieve his full potential.Written by

Dumbo's mother's eyes are blue but when she goes "rogue" after the kids attack Dumbo her eyes are blood-red. See more »
As Mr. Stork looks down from the cloud and scans for the circus train, the rim light on the cloud overlaps his beak. (This mistake was corrected on both the 2001 60th Anniversary Edition and the Blu-Ray remaster, but was left uncorrected for the 2006 Big Top Edition.) See more »
Through the snow, and sleet, and hail / Through the blizzard, through the gale / Through the wind and through the rain / Over mountain, over plain / Through the blinding lightning flash / And the mighty thunder crash / Ever faithful, ever true / Nothing stops him, he'll get through.

The RKO logo is in gold on a blue background within a stylish gold border; all of this is on a red background. See more »
The last theatrical release of the film that featured RKO title cards was in 1949. When it was re-released in 1959, it was replaced by Buena Vista title cards and was the same way until 2001, when the film was released on DVD for the first time for its 60th anniversary and all references to RKO were restored. (The 1995 laserdisc release actually did retain the RKO titles before then.) See more »
I will never get how people still say that Bambi losing his mother is the worst in the classic disney films. For me it's Dumbos mother being imprisoned because she tries to protect her child. Yes, she's not dying, but it's still so very sad! And then we get this little adventure for Dumbo and his mousey companion. These two always remind me of Pinocchio and Jiminy Cricket. The parade of the elephants - which Dumbo and Timothy Mouse are seeing when they're drunk (!) - is one of the craziest drug moments Disney ever did (probably only Alice in Wonderland can match it with it's weirdness). And it's so much fun to see Dumbo fly in the end and how he becomes a worldwide phenomenon after he got bullied around for such a long time.
