Dumbo is the 1941 pachyderm children's classic from Walt Disney Studios. The animals of a travelling circus show are brought babies by storks one fateful night, but for an elephant called Mrs. Jumbo it is a sad occasion. As she watches all her friends get their new babies, she slowly realizes that the storks do not seem to have a tiny elephant for her, even though she was expecting one. The next day brings a wonderful surprise though. A stork arrives ' better late than never! ' with a baby elephant for the despondent Mrs. Jumbo. She is overjoyed and proudly announces that his name will be Jumbo Jr. Then, the little baby sneezes and from the side of his head unfurl the most impossibly big ears that anyone has ever seen. Pretty soon, Jumbo Jr. is the joke of the circus, laughed at and ridiculed by all, and cruelly nicknamed Dumbo by the other female elephants. One day, some mischievous children visit the circus and tease Dumbo; when Mrs. Jumbo reacts violently towards them, she is taken away and locked in a cage away from her baby and the rest of the circus. A determined circus mouse called Timothy befriends Dumbo, and promises to make him a star.moreless
