It's From Screen To Theme
Cruise Week, and this week we are going to be
talking about the character on the back of the
Disney Fantasy: Dumbo! Dumbo is the fantastic
lead character in Walt Disney's 1941 film 'Dumbo.'
In films he can be found in 'Dumbo,' and
'Mickey's Magical Christmas: Snowed in at the
House of Mouse.' In addition to that, he has
cameos in 'Who Framed Roger Rabbit,' 'The Great
Mouse Detective,' and 'The Lion King 1 '.' In
television, he can be found in 'House of Mouse,'
'Mickey Mouse Club,' and 'Dumbo's Circus.' He
can also be found in the Kingdom Hearts series,
Mickey Mousecapade, Kinect Disneyland
Adventures, and Disney's Villains Revenge.
Finally he can be found in other merchandise
such as toys, clothing, books, pins, and many
Dumbo lives at the Circus with
his mother Mrs. Jumbo. The story of Dumbo is
extremely sad. Everyone, humans and elephants,
make fun of Dumbo because of his big ears. I
could really relate to this movie when I was
little because I was teased for having large
ears. Dumbo has wonderful friends that help him
including Timothy Mouse, Casey Jr., Mr. Stork,
and the Crows. His enemies include the evil
Ringmaster and The Pink Elephants in his
He is a baby elephant with
massive ears. He wears a red and yellow collar
sash and a yellow hat. Also in order to fly he
holds a black feather with his trunk. He is
extremely shy, but trustworthy and friendly once
he opens up.
*FUN FACT* Dumbo is the only
main character in any Disney film that doesn't
He was animated by Vladimir
Tytla. Also in Dumbo's Circus he was voiced by
Katie Leigh. I highly recommend buying the Dumbo
70th Anniversary DVD Bluray that was recently
released. It has some amazing special features
on the DVD.
Dumbo can be found in Disney
parks around the world. He can be seen in
Fantasmic!, Flights of Fantasy Parade, Main
Street Electrical Parade, and Dumbo the Flying
Elephant, which will become Dueling Dumbo's with
an interactive queue after the Fantasyland
Expansion is complete at Walt Disney World.
Finally Dumbo will have tie ins on the new
Disney Fantasy cruise ship: he will be seen on
the back of the ship with Timothy Mouse.
