- During the climax of the disastrous Elephant Pyramid, Matriarch the Elephant shouts this to the fleeing Dumbo, who they are about to fall onto:
"Out of my way, assassin!"
- Everything from Timothy's appearance as "Inspiration" to "I've got it! I've got it!".
- Especially the scene where Timothy spooks the gossiping elephants using antics such as 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.
- Timothy saying to the gossiping elephants, "You like to pick on little guys, huh? Why don't ya pick on me?" and the elephants turn around and he resumes spooking them.
- The numerous gags involving bubbles leading up to the "Pink Elephants" sequence.
Timothy: All right, let's see you blow a square one, pal.
- After the Pink Elephants number, some crows discover Dumbo. Unfortunate Implications aside, they discuss whether or not the elephant is dead.
Crow: Naw, dead people don't snore... or do they?
- The gorilla acting all fierce... until he breaks one of the bars on his cage. Then he sheepishly puts the bar back in place.
- Timothy falling into the bucket of alcohol and the operatic singing that comes shortly afterwards is absolutely hilarious as an adult.
- Mrs. Jumbo dunking the ringmaster in the tub of water after which he gets hit in the face with his shortfront trying to wring himself dry.
- The elephants commenting during their pyramid:
- The "Pink Elephants On Parade" scene was Nightmare Fuel to most viewers, but some parts of it can be pretty funny.
- 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 Moment of Awesome.
- One tiny elephant is stuck between the cymbals. As soon as it pries itself free, it dances on the others' heads as if to say "Look at me! I'm a big shot!"
- And finally, there's a point where an elephant wipes his ass with a lightning bolt. Hey, who said all randomness was creepy?
- This exchange while the Ringmaster is making a lengthy introduction to the pyramid act:
Catty: Hearing him talk, you'd think he was gonna do it.
Matriarch: The stuffed shirt!
Matriarch: That windbag! Why doesn't he get to the point?!
- Later on, when the elephants finish the act and the Ringmaster goes into lengthy intro mode again (this time for Dumbo himself):
- The initial performance by the clowns when Dumbo is incorporated into their act is quite hilarious, once you get by the fact they're practically abusing him.
- Out-of-universe, someone once did a remix of "We're Gonna Hit the Big Boss for a Raise" on Youtube. Sadly, it was taken down.
- 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)
