Tape annotation
One of Walt Disney's most endearing animated films is the story of Dumbo, the baby elephant born with oversized ears. Snubbed and ridiculed by all the other circus animals, he is befriended by Timothy, a small but spirited mouse. After several disastrous performances under the big top with the other circus stars, Timothy launches a daring plan; Dumbo will become the world's only flying elephant!
