Dumbo Story Detail
Circus elephant Mrs. Jumbo's little baby has huge ears, earning him the derision of the circus population and the nickname "Dumbo." After his mother is locked up for being overly protective of him, Dumbo is left alone to humiliating and exhausting circus jobs, finding solace only in the friendship of a mouse named Timothy and a quartet of rambunctious crows (the racial representation of the latter raised some debate about stereotyping). Befriended by Timothy the circus mouse, the dejected little elephant tries to find his niche with circus clowns- an attempt which ends in disaster. Finally, Dumbo soars to acceptance when he discovers that his ears are aerodynamic- Dumbo is a flying elephant! Memorable moments include the infamous “Pink Elephants on Parade” music sequence, a dazzling hallucination of Dumbo’s after he accidentally drinks champagne, and “Baby Mine,” when Dumbo sneaks a visit to his imprisoned mother and is tearfully cradled in her trunk.
