Dumbo is the shortest and in many ways the sweetest of Disney's major animated features. Does anyone at this late date need to be told that the story involves a baby elephant with unusually large ears? Ostracized from the rest of the circus animals, poor Dumbo is even separated from his mother, who is chained up in a separate cage after trying to defend her child. Only brash-but-lovable Timothy Mouse offers the hand of friendship to Dumbo, encouraging the pouty pachyderm to exploit his "different" qualities for fame and fortune. After trepidatiously indulging in a vat of booze (insert the classic "Pink Elephants on Parade" number here, please), Dumbo awakens in a tall tree. Goaded by a group of jive-talking crows, Dumbo discovers that his outsized ears have given him the ability to fly! With Timothy Mouse acting as his agent, Dumbo graduates to the circus' star attraction, and is happily reunited with his loving mama. The musical score by Frank Churchill and Oliver Wallace won Oscars for them both. — Hal Erickson
