The story takes place in 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 movie ends, he uses as wings to fly.
Throughout 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 2019, a live-action film was released.
