Viewed in isolation, Dumbo feels like a practice feature film from animators whose only previous experience was short subjects.

In its scant 64-minute running time, the big top melodrama of Dumbo reduces me to a blubbering, mucus-drizzling wreck at least once with every viewing.

... thoroughly modest and, at times, nearly slapdash in execution, [Dumbo] retains its power to charm.

One of the most emotionally potent of all animated movies; I might be inclined to say, of all movies, period.

There's a pleasant little story, plenty of pathos mixed with the large doses of humor, a number of appealing new animal characters, lots of good music, and the usual Disney skillfulness in technique.

Touching, comic, visually inventive and emotionally convincing, this remains a jewel in the crown of Disney's golden age.

It's very adult in nature, its themes of alienation being evergreen, just a bit wrongheaded in their delivery

Some folks consider it the best thing Disney ever did, a sweet story filled with rollicking gags, tuneful music, yet sadness and heartache, too.

Alguns dos estereótipos raciais são desconcertantes, mas o carisma do personagem-título e sua luta contra a rejeição ainda são capazes de emocionar.

With its colorful circus setting and quirky characters, this short Disney movie is easy to like, but it's Dumbo himself who steals your heart.

It just tells a great story and has beautiful moments of powerful emotion that can bring a tear to the eye even 65 years after it was made.
