ProShows effect of bullying

ConsNone

As anyone who reads my reviews will know, I love Disney. One of the first Disney films I remember seeing as a child was Dumbo. I loved it the first time I saw it, i cried the first time I saw it, and I still love it now. And yes, I still cry. This is a film only review. ~~~~ABOUT THE FILM~~~~...

ProWonderful animation, cute characters

ConsNone

It is hard to imagine that this film is now 60 years old. Even today it is as enjoyable as it ever has been. It is the story of a baby elephant, Dumbo who after being delivered to his mother by a manic stork is found to have the biggest ears imaginable. His mother is a star in a travelling circus...

“*~*~* EARS TO DUMBO~*~*~*~”

ProA Disney Film, cute characters,

ConsSome sad bits. ( which even had me crying)

FILM: Dumbo (1941) Try to imagine a world without Walt Disney. A world without his magic, whimsy, and optimism, a world without seeing DUMBO. From the time that Walt first read the galleys for the story, he knew it would make a fine film. Coming after two expensive movies ("Fantasia" and...

“The Elephant With Huge Ears”

published 03/01/2001

ProDisney film, cute characters, good story

Conssad in places, looks a bit dated

The film of Dumbo begins with his mother being in the circus with all the other elephants, awaiting the arrival of the stork. When her baby elephant arrives, it appears perfect, until its huge ears are revealed and poor Dumbo is ridiculed. But, as everyone knows, the film follows Dumbo through...

ProVery thoughtful and thought provoking

ConsSad

This film is great and touches everybody no matter of age. Dumbo is a baby elephant who when delivered by a Stalk (of course, where else do baby's come from?) has huge ears. Dumbo is consistently mocked for having ridiculously long ears. Tragically his very loving mother is taken away because...

Progood animation

Consbig eared elephants

"Dumbo" is certainly an extremely sweet (and never sappy) animated feature, and the title character is one of the most endearing animated creatures I've ever seen. But the picture as a whole doesn't hold up too well; it just seems too slight to sustain even its 62 minutes, and today's kids will...

Regardless of how much money is plowed into making films in the 21 century, or how many art degrees the animators have got, nothing can really beat the classics, of which Dumbo just has to be one. Ask almost anyone to recall childhood memories, and dumbo has to feature somewhere. It must have...

Product Information : Dumbo (Animated) (DVD)

Manufacturer's product description

Deceptively simple, beautiful, moving, and hilarious, DUMBO is often overlooked when considering Disney's greatest films because perhaps of its lack of extravagance, its brief running time, and its simple story. Baby elephant Jumbo Jr. is delivered by the stork to his elephant mom with much fanfare but soon receives a cold shoulder from the snobby female pachyderms and the rest of the circus due to his oversize ears. When his mother goes on a rampage in order to protect him from some snickering rubes, she winds up locked away. Dumbo is left without a friend in the world until the street-smart Timothy Mouse decides to become his manager and a telephone line full of delightful jive-talking crows convince him he can fly. Highlights include Dumbo accidentally getting drunk and experiencing the surreal musical sequence Pink Elephants on Parade and a soundtrack packed with such priceless songs as the Oscar-winning Baby Mine and the crow's soulful number, When I See an Elephant Fly. There's nary an imperfect moment to be found in this raucous, tender, sublime film, which has been delighting audiences for generations.
