The Pink Elephant Hallucinations of Dumbo

I have periodically been returning to the well of Disney cartoons, seeing what holds up (Snow White) and what does not (Sleeping Beauty). Over the long weekend, I watched the very short (64 minutes) Dumbo, which was basically made as quickly and simply as possible in an effort to recoup some of the money that Fantasia had lost.

As a result, there’s something of a slapdash air to it. Appealingly so, I might add! But you can’t help but feel that this is a short film that has been insanely padded out, particularly when you come to the scene when Dumbo accidentally gets drunk. Do you remember that scene? I hadn’t really. Nor did I remember the elaborate, hallucinogenic “Pink Elephants” number. Watch it below!
