Thoughts on Dumbo

ThoughtsDumbo is one of the most popular of all the animated movies out there, it might well be filled with questionable decisions that would never get past nowadays, but the deep down message about never fitting in for being different to the rest of the crowd. This isn’t going to be a review more of a recommendation, showing how animation was creative in the 1940s, giving the escape like not many other films would during the time.
