Dumbo is one of the shortest animated feature films for Disney to make; released in October of 1943, the film was supposed to be a quick way for Disney to recoup losses from longer features, including Fantasia and Pinocchio, which had left the company is debt. Dumbo did that and continues to be a family favorite, with people watching Dumbo streaming.
The film starred Edward Brophy, Herman Bing, and Margaret Wright, and would win an Academy Award; it also been nominated to several ‘best of’ lists despite criticism of the portrayals of some of the animal-characters within the film. Dumbo tells the story of a baby elephant, with very large ears, who is separated from his mother. Left alone, he makes friends with a circus mouse who helps him discover his inner strength.
