Before it was a movie, "Dumbo" was a children's book.


Originally published in 1938, "Dumbo" was a children's picture book written by Helen Aberson and illustrated by Harold Pearl. The film rights would later be purchased by Disney, who entrusted the script to Joe Grant and Dick Huemer.

 

There are amusement park rides inspired by "Dumbo" around the globe.

There are amusement park rides inspired by "Dumbo" around the globe.


Inspired by the 1941 film, the Disney ride is oftentimes called "Dumbo the Flying Elephant" and riders can control the altitude of their flying elephant. Variations of the "Dumbo" ride can be found in Disney parks around the globe.

 

It was Disney's fourth animated film.


"Dumbo" was only Disney's fourth ever animated film. Released in October 1941, "Dumbo" was preceded by "Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs," "Pinocchio," and "Fantasia."

 

Dumbo was almost a magazine cover star as Time's "Mammal of the Year."


Dumbo was almost named Time's "Mammal of the Year," a play on the magazine's "Person of the Year." Just before the historic portrait cover was released, there was an attack on Pearl Harbor. The magazine pulled the Dumbo cover and replaced December 1941's cover with a portrait of General Douglas MacArthur.

The original "Dumbo" cover story still ran in the magazine and Dumbo was still "Mammal of the Year," just with an updated introduction paragraph and no official cover.

 

It's one of Disney's shortest feature films ever.


At just 64 minutes long, "Dumbo" is one of the shortest Disney feature films ever created. The average Disney film typically runs between 80 and 90 minutes.

 

The film has been called racist.


Parts of the movie, like the inclusion of crows as stereotypically black characters with a stereotyped vernacular, have been lambasted since the film's debut, according to Mic. The leading crow is even named Jim Crow, an overt allusion to discriminatory Jim Crow laws.

 

The film won an Oscar.


At the 1942 Academy Awards, "Dumbo" won for best music, scoring of a musical picture. The film would also win a Cannes Film Festival award for best animation design in 1947.

 

The circus has a familiar name.


If you look carefully, you'll notice that the name of the circus where "Dumbo" takes place is called "WDP Circus." This is likely a nod to Walt Disney Productions, the studio responsible for the film.

 

You might recognize Mr. Stork's voice.


Although uncredited, Mr. Stork's voice in the film was recorded by Sterling Holloway. Over the years, Holloway would make a name for himself voicing several Disney characters, including a flower in "Bambi," the narrator in "Mickey and the Beanstalk," Cheshire Cat in "Alice in Wonderland,"  the snake Kaa in "The Jungle Book," and Roquefort in "The Aristocats."

 

The Disney animator strike took place during the movie's production.


In May of 1941, during the production of "Dumbo," Disney animators went on strike. After a few weeks, Disney animators were unionized and "Dumbo" was finished and released later that same year.
