* FairForItsDay: Consider that the crows are among the limited number of characters who are half-decent to Dumbo, and prove to easily be the most clever creatures in the movie.

For obvious reasons, this is subverted in foreign translations, due to the fact the [[LostInTranslation visual pun is lost for non-English speaking audiences]].

* BaseBreaker: The Crows. Many modern viewers feel that they are a racist, stereotypical portrayal of African Americans (the fact that the leader is named Jim Crow does not help). Others point out that they are the only characters aside from Timothy who are sympathetic to Dumbo and help him and are portrayed as being very clever, a trait not shown in stereotypical African American characters.

** "Baby Mine" isn't necessarily catchy, but it's certainly memorable.

** When asked about it, Floyd Norman, one of Disney's first Black animators, defended the characters as saying that they were never conceived as flat racist stereotypes so much as popular Black entertainers from the era, and that he personally never saw them as offensive.



** The circus starting out in Florida can be seen as this now that Disney World is there..

* OneSceneWonder: Jumbo's mother only says one line "Jumbo...Junior" while giving a name to her son.
** Also the Stork, who delivers Dumbo to her.
* TheyChangedItNowItSucks: The general reaction to the announcement of a live-action film. Certainly not helped by it being a ''HumanFocusedAdaptation''.

* AdaptationDisplacement: Though it's not entirely Disney's fault. The movie was based on a really rare out-of-print picture book, and if there hadn't been a movie made of it, Dumbo probably would have been almost completely unheard of today.

* AdaptationDisplacement: Though it's not entirely Disney's fault. The movie was based on a really rare out-of-print picture book, an extremely obscure and unnoticed children's book that was only in print very briefly, which Walt just happened to stumble upon at a bookstore and cost him only a couple bucks. In fact, if there hadn't been a movie Disney ''hadn't'' made an adaptation of it, chances are Dumbo probably would have been almost completely unheard of today.

* ParvumOpus: Walt considered ''Dumbo'' to be this. If this was the worst of the first five films, that should say everything about their quality.
** MagnumOpus: A '''''VERY RARE''''' example of this and ParvumOpus being applied to the same film; this is considered to be one of the best Disney films on Rotten Tomatoes.
