English Summary:

Upon the passing of winter, in 1941, a flock of storks deliver babies to circus animals within the "Winter Quarters" in Florida. All the mothers receive their parcels before departure except the elephant Mrs. Jumbo. During travel, a lost stork brings her an elephant who, to the other elephants' surprise, is adorned with extraordinarily large ears. He is made an object of ridicule and given the nickname "Dumbo". Mrs. Jumbo attempts to remain dignified and treats her child with all her maternal love, but when a group of rascals takes to mocking Dumbo, Mrs. Jumbo catches one of them with her trunk and spanks him. The circus ringmaster deems Mrs. Jumbo mad and has her locked in a cage. The lone Dumbo is made a pariah amongst the rest of the circus troupe. A small mouse named Timothy consoles Dumbo and vows to make him a star.

After being secretly encouraged by Timothy, the ringmaster makes Dumbo the top of an elephant pyramid stunt. The performance goes awry as Dumbo trips over his ears and misses his target, causing the other elephants to suffer various injuries, and bring down the big top. Dumbo is made into a clown as a result, to the shame of the other elephants, and plays the main role in an act that involves him falling into a vat of pie filling. Despite his newfound popularity and fame, Dumbo dislikes this job, and is now more miserable than ever. To cheer Dumbo up, Timothy takes him to visit his imprisoned mother. The two are unable to see each other face to face, and can only entwine trunks. On the way back, Dumbo cries and then starts to hiccup, so Timothy takes him for a drink of water from a bucket which, unknown to them, has accidentally had a bottle of champagne spilled into it by the clowns. As a result, Dumbo and Timothy both become drunk and have surreal hallucinations of pink elephants.


Hungarian Summary:

Dumbót, a hatalmas fülű, csöppnyi elefántot a cirkuszi állatsereglet tagjai mind bántják és gúnyolják, egyedül Timothy, a jókedvű kisegér barátkozik vele. A porondon nem könnyű sikert aratni, különösen egy lepedőnyi füleket cipelő csöppnyi elefántnak. Számtalan kudarc után Timothy vakmerő tervet eszel ki: Dumbó lesz a világ első repülő elefántbébije!


Voice cast / Hangok:

The voice actors are uncredited for their roles in the film.

  • The title character is Dumbo, the nickname given to Jumbo Jr. He is an elephant who has huge ears and is able to use them to fly, carrying what he thinks of as a magic feather. Like Dopey in Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs, Gideon in Pinocchio, and Tootles in Peter Pan, Dumbo does not have a word of spoken dialogue.
  • Edward Brophy as Timothy Q. Mouse, an anthropomorphic mouse who becomes the only friend of Dumbo, along with the crows, after his mother is locked up and does his best to make Dumbo happy again. He teaches Dumbo how to become the "ninth wonder of the universe", and the only flying elephant in the world. He is never mentioned by name in the film, but his signature can be read on the contract in a newspaper photograph at the finale.
  • Verna Felton as Elephant Matriarch, the well-meaning but pompous leader of the elephants who is initially cold toward Dumbo. Felton also voices Mrs. Jumbo, Dumbo's mother, who speaks only once in the film to give Dumbo's name.
  • Cliff Edwards as Dandy Crow (previously named Jim Crow on the original script), the leader of a group of crows. Though he initially jokes and ridicules Timothy's idea that Dumbo can fly, he hears Dumbo's tragic history and becomes determined to help Dumbo fly for real.
  • Herman Bing as The Ringmaster, the main antagonist. Though maybe not truly evil, is a strict, greedy and arrogant man who exploits workers and animals. The Ringmaster later appears as a villain in the video game Disney's Villains' Revenge.
  • Margaret Wright as Casey Junior, the sentient 2-4-0 tender locomotive hauling the circus train.
  • Sterling Holloway as Mr. Stork
  • The Hall Johnson Choir as Crow Chorus
  • James Baskett as Fats Crow
  • Nick Stewart as Specks Crow
  • Hall Johnson as Deacon Crow
  • Jim Carmichael (singer) as Dopey Crow
  • The King's Men as Roustabout Chorus

  • Billy Bletcher as Clown
  • John McLeish as the narrator
