* The [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CORf1liT9cE "Baby Mine" sequence,]] with Dumbo's mum barely able to reach her baby with her trunk through the bars of her tiny cage, is heartbreaking.

** The end of the sequence, when Dumbo and his mother are forced to part ways, and hold onto each trunks until they 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.

** The song takes on a whole new meaning when you consider that this movie was released only a couple months before the attack on Pearl Harbor. When America entered World War II, many children would end up relating to Dumbo; their fathers would all be off fighting in the war (many of them would be killed in action, and thus never come back to their families), and their mothers would be working in the factories to take their husbands' place, too busy to be at home with their children. Even children today,especially ones who have parents that are either in prison or have a job that takes them far away from home, can relate to this scene and the song.

*** Speaking of Timothy, ever wonder if he was probably thinking about his own mother at that moment?

** It doesn't help that they mix Dumbo not being able to be with his mom with scenes of ''all the other baby animals'' being rocked to sleep by their mothers.
