** The most heartwrenching moment of the sequence is when Timothy sheds a single tear.
* The whole of ''Disney/{{Dumbo}}'' was so traumatizing to watch Mrs. Jumbo be locked up for trying to protect her son and all that time they were separated!

Dumbo and all that time his mother are forced to part ways, and hold onto each trunks until they were separated!can't anymore. He waves goodbye even as he's walking away, and she in turn races around to the other cage window so she can wave just a little longer.

* A minor, but important one: Timothy calls the crows out for ridiculing Dumbo, noting how Dumbo's been ostracized for his ears. During the speech, each crow sheds a tear. Being patterned after black stereotypes (aka Jim Crow, the leader's name), they probably sympathize with Dumbo because [[FridgeBrilliance they also know what discrimination is like.]]

** There's a reason Animation Historian Micheal Barrier has praised this sequence--the emotions in the scene are so real, you can't help but share your sympathy with Ms. Jumbo and Dumbo.

* Not even ''slightly'' comparable to the above in terms of sadness, but directly after Dumbo's humiliation is when Casey Jr sings a few depressed bars of his song, and you realise that the circus has been dealt an enormous blow, remembering the terrible damage caused inadvertantly.
* Right after Mrs Jumbo is locked, [[TheWoobie Dumbo]] comes over to the other elephants who [[KickTheDog ignore him!]] They really deserved what Timothy Mouse did!

* Not The establishing shot of Casey Jr slowly pulling the circus train through a nightly rainstorm after Dumbo's destruction of the big top: While not even ''slightly'' comparable to the above in terms of sadness, but directly after Dumbo's humiliation is when Casey Jr sings it can be interpreted as a few depressed bars of his song, and you realise realization that the circus has been dealt an enormous blow, remembering the terrible damage caused inadvertantly.
inadvertently. It can also be viewed as a foreshadowing of the tear-jerking scenes to come as Casey (or the chorus) hums a few mournful bars.

* Before Dumbo's mother is locked away, everyone - the other elephants, the boys in the circus - laughs at and ridicules Dumbo for his ears. He's just a ''baby''. Plus the fact that he doesn't comprehend the jeering - being a baby, probably not even knowing what condescension and mocking and sadness is - and laughs along and wiggles his ears, and they laugh at him more, and just...agh.

-->'''Timothy:''' You ought to be ashamed of yourselves. A bunch of big guys like you, picking on a poor little orphan like him! Suppose you was torn away from your mother when you was just a baby. Nobody to tuck you in at nights. No warm, soft, caressing trunk to snuzzle inta. How would you like to be left out alone, in a cold, cruel, heartless world? And why? I ask ya, why?! Just because he's got those big ears, they called him a freak! A laughingstock at the circus! And when his mother tried to protect him, they threw her in the clink. And on top of that, they made him a clown! Socially, he's washed up! Oh but what's the use of talking to you cold-hearted birds? Go on ahead. Have your fun. Laugh at him! KICK HIM NOW THAT HE'S DOWN! GO ON!! ...We don't care.

** The fates of unmanageable elephants back in those times and the very real possibility that Mrs. Jumbo knows this. If things hadn't worked out the way they did, these could have very easily been their last moments together.
