Dumbo script
Dumbo (670)
Synopsis: A young circus elephant is born with comically large ears and given the cruel nickname Dumbo. One day at a show, he is taunted by a group of kids, inciting his mother into a rage that gets her locked up. After Dumbo's ears cause an accident that injures many of the other elephants, he is made to dress like a clown and perform dangerous stunts. Everything changes when Dumbo discovers that his enormous ears actually allow him to fly, and he astounds everyone at the circus with his new talent.

Ah, this is a proud, proud day.

- Well, hurry and open it, dearie. - I'm just dying to see.

- Oh! - Look at him!

Look at him!

Oh, what a-- Oh, look!

- Oh, you sweet little thing. - He is cute, isn't he?

Oh, he is a darling little baby.

Adorable. Simply adorable.

Did you ever see anything so cunning?

Isn't he a darling!

Kootchy, kootchy, kootchy, kootchy, kootchy, kootchy.

- Oh! - Oh!

- Is it possible? - Isn't there some mistake?

Just look at those, those--


Those what? Oh, ears!

These! Aren't they funny? Oh!

- Oh, my goodness. - What a temper.

Oh, what did I do? Well, tell me.

- Did I say anything? - Perfectly harmless remark.

I just said that they're funny, and they are funny.

- They certainly are. - After all, who cares...

about her precious little Jumbo?

Jumbo? You mean Dumbo.


- Dumbo, I say. - That's good.

- Dumbo! That's good. - Dumbo.

I think I can. I think I can. I think I can. I think I can.

I think I can. I think I can. I think I can.

I thought I could. I thought I could. I thought I could. I thought I could.


Hike, ugh, hike, ugh hike, ugh, hike

We work all day We work all night

We never learned to read or write

We're happy-hearted roustabouts

Hike, ugh, hike, ugh hike, ugh, hike
