“You are precious to me, Sweet as can be, Baby of mine.” As one of the many 'Dumbo' quotes, it gives us a glimpse of how warming, sweet, magical, and emotional the journey of 'Dumbo'. It’s a beautiful film worth your time.

'Dumbo', a movie from Walt Disney Productions, unfolds an enthralling story full of emotions, triumphs, struggles, and adventure. It has been directed by some of the biggest names in the industry including Ben Sharpsteen, Bill Roberts, Wilfred Jackson, Norman Ferguson, Samuel Armstrong, Jack Kinney, and John Elliotte. The voices for the characters have been delivered by renowned artists like Cliff Edwards, James Baskett, Jim Carmichael, Verna Felton, Billy Bletcher, Edward Brophy, and Sterling Holloway.

The struggling circus owner, Max Medici, appoints the care of Dumbo to his children and a former star. Dumbo's name was given to the endearing infant elephant born with curiously large ears. When the family finds that Dumbo can fly, it before long turns into the primary fascination - getting immense crowds and reviving the once-over carnival. Along with big ears, Dumbo’s enchanting capacity is one of the things that draws the consideration of V.A. Vandevere, a business person who needs to feature Dumbo in his most recent, overwhelming amusement adventure.

Mrs. Jumbo names the infant baby boy Jumbo Jr. when Mr Stork (Sterling Holloway) conveys her baby, but the other animals in the circus, on noticing babies’ unique large ears are callous and cruelly mock him by calling him Dumbo. Hence, the baby elephant was eventually named Dumbo altogether. Read along for iconic 'Dumbo' quotes.
