Project Disney: When I See An Elephant Fly

Disney Classic no.4 was Dumbo, the timeless tale of social acceptance. When I started this, Dumbo was always set to be a special one. The reason being it is the first high definition viewing on the list. A lot of the list is currently sitting on my Sky HD box, taped from Disney Cinemagic, but this one is Blu Ray presented in the oriignal 4:3 aspect ration.

At only 63 minutes, this was an easy one to put on, and I'm glad I didn't put it off any longer. In the previous post, I said that Pinocchio was the first of what I consider to be the proper Disney films. It is nothing in comparison to Dumbo. This truly does warrant the term 'classic'. Visually, it may not be as strong as Pinocchio but the story more than makes up for this. It really is a tale which could only be told through the medium of animation.

Watching this has really set me up for getting through this list.
