'Dumbo' the 1941 animated feature film produced by Walt Disney and first released on October 23, 1941 is scheduled to be re-released in a new digitally enhanced DVD format Special Edition on January 20th.
Although denied, the coincidence with this timing and the inaugeration of President Elect Barack Obama has been speculated ~ yet there are similarities that can't be understated.
'He is ridiculed for his big ears, but in fact he is capable of flying by using them as wings, using his magic feather.' So too could Dumbo!
Throughout most of the film, Dumbo's only true friend is the mouse Timothy, parodying the stereotypical animosity between donkey's and elephants.
The film has been criticized as being racist!
Michelle's backside is now generally regarded as a classic of animation.
The simple film only cost $813,000.00 to produce ~ President Obama has to produce $813,000,000,000.00 to stand any chance that he gets a further 4 years in office.
