DVD DUMBO THE FLYING ELEPHANT
Inside a circus train, the Jumbo elephant receives a small elephant, which she calls Dumbo, as a gift from a stork. His colleagues are at first moved by that little creature, but when Dumbo unfolds his huge ears, he is offended by some elephantesses who think he is hideous and this creates dismay and indignation on the part of his mother. When the circus is stationed inside a village and the animals are shown to the public, like in a zoo, the children make fun of that big-eared elephant and this unleashes the anger of Mrs. Jumbo, who is imprisoned and divided. from his little son. Dumbo, marginalized by the rest of the group, remains completely alone without his mother, but luckily he meets the mouse Timoteo, who has compassion for him and urges him to redeem himself. However Dumbo creates considerable damage to circus performances, ending up tripping just because of his huge ears and causing chain collisions, such as to collapse the circus tent. Cos is used as a clown, humiliating himself in performances that see him taking buckets in the face and slapping. Timoteo tries to alleviate Dumbo's suffering by having him meet his mother from outside the prison car in which she is imprisoned. This creates even more dismay in the young elephant, so in the evening Timoteo and Dumbo mistakenly mistake water for wine and get a heavy hangover. The next morning the two wake up on the branch of a tree. But how did they get up there? Some crows are willing to bet that the baby elephant managed to fly, even with its big ears.
