Dumbo, Disney’s fourth animated feature in the Walt Disney Animated Classics series, was released 72 years ago on October 23, 1941. In addition to the adorable Dumbo (who’s real name was Jumbo Jr.), the film features Mrs. Jumbo, Timothy Q. Mouse, Jim Crow, and Casey Junior.
At the 1941 Oscars, Dumbo won ‘Best Scoring of a Musical Picture”. Not surprising…….how awesome is the song “Pink Elephants on Parade”? or “Baby Mine”?
At 64 minutes, Dumbo is one of Disney’s shortest feature films! It may be short, but it is certainly a classic.
Happy Birthday Dumbo!! 🙂
