Holt was once a circus star until he went off to war and returned terribly altered. Circus owner Max Medici hires him to take care of Dumbo, a newborn elephant whose oversized ears make him the laughingstock of the struggling circus troupe. But when Holt's children discover that Dumbo can fly, silver-tongued entrepreneur V.A. Vandevere and aerial artist Colette Marchant swoop in to make the little elephant a star.
When Dumbo first appears in the circus and is being pushed around in a baby buggy, the letters read "Dear Baby Jumbo." Following the damage to the sign and letters falling off/moving around, it reads "Ear Baby Dumbo." See more »
Dumbo performs at the big tent and flies out breaking the front doors with glass flying. A few seconds later people are leaving the same show out the same doors which are not damaged. See more »
Come on, time to go. We haven't got all day. Get that monkey on the train. The Medici Brothers' circus is taking off!

The last puff of black smoke from Casey Jr. reveals the opening title design, which zooms slightly forward in 3D. For the transition, the title degenerates into blue smoke. See more »
This is a lovely film that deserves to be discovered by each generation. Best acting performance of every characters in this film. Everybody should jump aboard experience the circus with DUMBO. No matter how old you are, you just might get something out of it. Not all of it's pretty, but it's always cute and ultimately very funny. I love you DUMBO !!
