** For example, at one point an elephant head pops up. Then another, upside down. The two heads look at each other and shrink away from each other at the same time.
** One large elephant is constantly trampling a smaller elephant. The smaller elephant sneaks up behind the larger elephant and kicks it in the rear. The elephant splits into three somewhat smaller elephants who make trumpet noises at the other elephant before it grows to a massive size and uses a pair of cymbals to smash the three into a load of tiny elephants. Also a MomentOfAwesome.

* When Jim wakes up Timothy as he and Dumbo are sleeping in the tree:
-->'''Timothy:''' (rubs his eyes and moans) Ohhhhhhhh! All those pink elephants.\\
'''Jim:''' Pink elephants? Mm-mmmm!\\
(The Crows laugh)\\
'''Timothy:''' What's so funny? What're you boids doin' down here, anyway?\\
'''Jim:''' What're we doing ''down'' here? Well hear him talk!\\
(The Crows laugh harder)\\
'''Timothy:''' (trying to go back to sleep) Ah, fly up a tree where you belong.\\
'''Jim:''' (puffs a cloud of smoke around Timothy) Now look here, Brother Rat...\\
'''Timothy:''' (suddenly standing up, then staring Jim straight in the face) Brother Rat?! Now listen! I ain't your brother, and I ain't no rat, see?\\
'''Jim:''' Uh-uh. And I suppose you and no elephant ain't up in no tree, either.\\
'''Timothy:''' No! No, me in no tree and I'm no... What? Tree?\\
(he and Jim look up, then down to see that they really are up a tree)\\
'''Timothy:''' (gasps, then squeals as he hides in Dumbo's trunk)

** Especially the scene where Timothy spooks the gossiping elephants using antics such as [[FelonyMisdemeanor jiggling his face, twitching his nose, whistling, and doing a napoleon pose.]] This is also a {{Moment of Awesome}}, for putting the snobby elephants in their place
*** Funnier still when you consider there is some {{Truth in Television}} about this, Mythbusters showed elephants are slightly wary of mice and go out of their way to avoid them.

** And finally, there's a point where an elephant wipes his ass with a lightning bolt. Hey, who said all randomness was creepy?
