    • I agree with you there, the color pops off the screen (another reason to watch all Disney movies on Blu or HD). I’d say Dumbo’s made the biggest leap – no pun intended – on my list of favorite Disney animated films. It’s easily top 10.

  1. Yes, the crows were obviously intended to be seen as black characters, but what were the adult elephants other than gossipy old white women? And of the two sets of characters, which were the most likable, the crows or the elephants? Most people would pick the crows anyday.

    • True, I just noted it as the first instance of “controversy” in a Disney film that would continue with the portrayal of the Indians in Peter Pan and other characters that have been labeled racist.
