7.4????? Are you people insane???

This is clearly one of the great animated features of all time. How it squeaks by with a mere 7.4 voter average while all sorts of contemporary crap does far better is a mystery and a tribute to the downward spiral in cinematic taste. DUMBO is my favorite of all the classic Disney films (a group which ends with JUNGLE BOOK, completed after Walt's death). Nothing since then has been able to recapture the magic. Walt may have been, according to some people, a fascist and an anti-Semite, but he was also a genius.

Things that make this movie great:

The animation (I used to work at a zoo, and while the real elephants did little talking or singing the animators captured their body language incredibly well.)

"Pink Elephants on Parade".

Effective but not over-the-top heartstring tugging.

The musical crow number ("When I See an Elephant Fly"). I'm disappointed to discover the voice actors (Including Cliff Edwards, "Ukelele Ike" and the voice of Jiminy Cricket) were white guys playing black --- I was hoping they were some cool unknown black combo --- but it's a terrific number anyway.

The 64 minute running time. It starts, tells it's simple story, then knows when the hell to get off the stage. I wish more film makers had that ability.

Disney's endearing classic

One of Disney's best known and loved films. About a baby elephant born in the tough world of the circus who is ridiculed and shut out because of his large ears. Comforted by his mother until she attacks a trainer and is penned up in a jaillike wagon, Dumbo eventually learns that he can fly and becomes a star. A great film that deals with discrimination, self esteem, the importance of family and friendship. Features a great score which it won an oscar for and a nomination for song, the beautiful "Baby Mine" . The pink elephants scene is a classic. Wonderfully done, arguably Disney's best on a scale of one to ten...10

Dumbo **½ (5/10)

USA 1941 English (Colour); Animation (Walt Disney); 64 minutes (U certificate)

Crew includes: Ben Sharpsteen (Director); Joe Grant, Dick Huemer (Screenwriters); Walt Disney (Producer)

Voices include: Edward Brophy, Verna Felton, Cliff Edwards (all uncredited)

Academy Award: Scoring of a Musical

Encouraged by an enterprising mouse (Brophy), an isolated baby elephant with massive ears overcomes his "freakishness" to become a circus sensation.

Slightest of all Disney classics (conceived as a short), with a cute, dialogue-free title character, and, remarkably, a trippy, alcohol-induced Pink Elephants on Parade sequence; ends quite suddenly once Dumbo realises he can fly.
