Pop Goes The Classics – Dumbo

On the fourth installment of the Pop Goes The Classics series going through the Disney animated features, Andy Atherton & Mirandia Berthold look at 1941’s Dumbo. They discuss the many aspects of the film including the focus on the animals and not the humans; elephant cliques; the themes of overcoming adversity, treating others fairly and unconditional love; the trippy Pink Elephants On Parade sequence; the feel-good happy ending and of course, the classic theme park attraction that is based on it.
