''Dumbo'' is a [[TheGoldenAgeOfAnimation 1941]] animated film, the fourth in the Franchise/DisneyAnimatedCanon. The previous year, Disney released two expensive animated features, ''{{Disney/Pinocchio}}'' and ''{{Disney/Fantasia}}'', that both bombed at the box office. Production for the equally expensive ''{{Disney/Bambi}}'' was already well underway, and Disney had to quickly find a way to make some money in order to complete the movie. After a short children's book about a flying circus elephant was brought to his attention, Disney made ''Dumbo'' on a pretty cheap budget (it cost less than half as much as ''Pinocchio'' or ''Fantasia''). Fortunately, it paid off and enough money was made to complete ''Bambi''. Thanks to this and a re-release in 1949, ''Dumbo'' was the most profitable Disney film of the decade.

* AnimateInanimateObject: Casey Jr., the train. At the end he has eyes too, moreover you can hear him talk during the mountain climbing ("I think I can, I think I can, I think I can...").
** Casey has eyes throughout the movie, but the whites of his eyes are actually a similar grey to his boiler and hard to notice.
** His whistle before he starts off is also sounds-as-speech (and kicks off his song):
--->"''All ABOOOOOARD! Let's go!''"

* AnimalsLackAttributes: Played straight to the point where all of the circus animals even have to rely entirely on [[DeliveryStork delivery storks]] in order for them to have offspring.

** Dumbo is not the only famous story about [[RudolphTheRedNosedReindeer a baby animal who is originally ridiculed by everyone for his deformity, but is then accepted and loved once it turns out to have a good use.]] Nor is it the [[LambertTheSheepishLion only one animated by Disney]].

** The [[BigShadowLittleCreature shadow Timothy casts]] when going to the ringmaster is a reference to Nosferatu. Disney screened the film in-studio for his animators.
** Timothy's remark about how "lots of people with big ears are famous" is believed by some film historians to have been a reference to ClarkGable.
** The song "When I See an Elephant Fly" includes a reference to "a fireside chat". This was a shout-out to President Roosevelt, as "fireside chat" was the term used for Roosevelt's occasional radio addresses to the American public during his presidency (1933-45).
