Dumbo is hard to recommend. On the one hand, the art quality is pretty good for its age. On the other, there is a disturbing animation scene involving elephants and some very offensive birds.

Recommended age is also difficult to decide. The target audience is young children, but the questionable content is probably unsuitable given modern cultural trends for anyone younger than 8.

Watch it to say you've seen it, but don't be super excited about what's in store.

The elephant that could fly.

Dumbo is a definite Disney cartoon favourite of mine. It is a real family classic.

This is a charming, beautifully animated story about an outcast circus-elephant with big ears who learns that he can fly.

Dumbo has everything - personable animals, a poignant story and a truly happy ending. This wonderful movie is good fun for young and old, and it can still invoke a tear, or two, in the right places.

You can't beat a circus Elephant and his friend the circus mouse. This movie has been a favorite of mine since I was a small kid and saw it a Saturday Matinee. Great fun for the entire family!

The racist bits may be stereotypical, but this is still a decent classic. Rushed into production following the initial failure of "Fantasia," this one pulls out all the stops to push motherhood and baby buttons, as well as the ugly duckling theme. The plot and dialogue are fairly mundane, but some of the animation is amazingly innovative.

It was amazing watching this blu-ray version with my 4 year old. I grew up with an old ratty VHS copy and this version is so clear it is amazing. The story and songs still hold up today and the pink elephant sequence is just as bizarre and trippy as I recall. Great classic for all ages.
