From Wiki:
Dumbo is a 1941 American animated film produced by Walt Disney Productionsand released on October 23, 1941, by RKO Radio Pictures before the Attack on Pearl Harbor. Sound was recorded conventionally using the RCA System. One voice was synthesized using the Sonovox system, but it, too, was recorded using the RCA System.
As the fourth animated feature in the Disney Animated Canon, Dumbo is based upon the storyline written by Helen Aberson and illustrated by Harold Pearl for the prototype of a novelty toy (“Roll-a-Book”). The main character is “Dumbo”. He is laughed with for his big ears, but in fact he is capable of flying by using his ears as wings. Throughout most of the film, his only true friend, aside from his mother, is the mouse, Timothy — a relationship parodying the stereotypical animosity between mice and elephants.
Dumbo was made to recoup the financial losses of Fantasia. It was a deliberate pursuit of simplicity and economy for the Disney studio, and at 64 minutes, it is one of Disney’s shortest animated features, Saludos Amigos in 1942 is the shortest, running at 42 minutes. It was a huge box office hit, and it became iconic to WWII as it was hailed by critics and audiences as a joyous film, appropriate for such vulgar times.”

One of the movie’s songs “Baby Mine” has been recorded by multiple artists.
