Sad Disney: “Dumbo”

Even though Dumbo is a character who never speaks, the Disney animators still make us sympathize with his plight. A child who must fend for himself after his mother is unjustly locked up by the Circus, Dumbo’s “prison” visit with his mother is a sad sequence that often makes audiences cry. While the song Baby Mine is often used as a sweet lullaby, the film introduces it in one of its sadder scenes. Illustrating the bond between mother and child makes the characters seem more human.
