Dumbo was Walt Disney’s 4th animated feature.The character was based on a 1939 story written by Helen Aberson and illustrated by Harold Pearl, the tale was originally written for a pro type toy. The movie was the least expensive of Disney’s animated features. It was made on tight budget and was produced in order to try and recoup the costs of commercial failures Pinocchio and Fantasia. Due to the film’s small budget it is one of the few Disney films which uses watercolours to create its backgrounds. Watercolours were used simply because they cost less. Dumbo is the only lead character in a Disney movie to never speak! His mother also only ever speaks once, when she says Dumbo’s original name. The movie was also the first, and still one of the few, Disney animations to be set in America. Dumbo’s mother was originally named Mother Ella, but her name was changed to Mrs Jumbo by writers Joe Grant and Dick Huemer in order to honour the famous Barnum and Bailey circus pachyderm. Disney’s first home video release was Dumbo. Originally it was released in 1981 for rental only, but it was put on sale a year later. The movie has since moved to DVD and never gone out of print, with its most recent repackaging released in 2011, to celebrate its 70th anniversary.
