After losing so much money on the first few movies, Disney had to seriously scale back the budgets for their newest projects. However, they didn’t scale back their ambitions. Walt and the animators wanted to make something that pushed the envelope without breaking the bank. Their solution was Dumbo, as colorful and magical as their previous movies … while only being 64 minutes long. Walt Disney's fourth film is only barely feature-length, but underestimating it for this is like underestimating the main character for his ears.
