Dumbo is a 1941 animated film by Disney, based on a storyline written by Helen Aberson and illustrated by Harold Pearl. The story takes place at a circus trope, where the main character is Jumbo Jr., a young elephant cruelly nicknamed "Dumbo". He is ridiculed by the other elephants for his huge ears, which before the movies ends, he uses as wings to fly.
Throughout most of the film, his only true friend, aside from his mother, is the mouse, Timothy – a relationship parodying the stereotypical animosity between mice and elephants.
In 2017, the film was selected for preservation in the United States National Film Registry by the Library of Congress as being "culturally, historically, or aesthetically significant".
