Frightening & Intense Scenes

  • The song "baby mine" can be tear jerking when Dumbo reunites with his mom.
  • The film, although G rated, can be emotionally intense at times, such as when Dumbo's mom is taken away from him, they are both clearly upset and want to remain together, but can't. However, this has a great message to give to little children. You should not tease someone for any reason, because anyone can reach their goal if they try.
