FUN FACT: Dumbo (or Jumbo Jr.) is known as the elephant who saved the studio. Disney had lost a lot of money in the production of Fantasia and was at risk of closing, however Dumbo was released in 1941 and was the first Disney film releases to turn a profit since the release of Snow White, that's why in California Adventure in front of Off the Page there is an imprint of Dumbo on the side walk :)
Thanks for the info. Side note, Fantasia is a box office flop during its opening because people are not used to see Classical music and Animation together. But it was an innovative movie that time. The first stereo sound surround movie released in 1940 and it was an expensive venture,! Also, lets admit it, Fantasia did save Mickey Mouse though (some say the original Sorcerer Apprentice will be Dopey but Walt insist to put Mickey instead) - otilegna   1777.3 #68 7-28-12 8:42AM Like(2)  Reply
Interesting! Hmmmm dopey as sorcerer? - Mouseketeer.for.Short  335.7 #622 7-28-12 9:05AM
I read that before... Because Dopey is soo popular that time, Mickey Mouse almost lost his popularity... Agree that Fantasia almost make Disney Animation bankrupt, but it still my fave movie (Walt put all his geniuses to that movie, and later he admit it was a mistake move... It was a risky movie) - otilegna  1777.3 #68 7-28-12 9:19AM
