Storyline

Live action TV series based on Disney's classic Dumbo, an elephant with the ability to fly (with the help of his trusty feather). The characters were all costumes (with the help of 'puppetronics', I believe, radio-controlled mechanisms pioneered by Jim Henson's "Fraggle Rock" and Disney's "Welcome to Pooh Corner". This series didn't produce too many episodes but ran for quite a while and was pretty popular for a cable series. Written by The Puppet Avenger

The series that ruined the Dumbo !!
22 March 2019 | by afonsobritofalvesSee all my reviews

Before saying anything, I would like to state that I love the Dumbo, the movie "Dumbo" was part of my childhood and it was that movie that marked me for the rest of my life, but this series is the opposite of the movie. While the film depicts the life of a small elephant that lived in a circus surrounded by other wild animals and humans and was flying by train, this series talks about an elephant that has nothing resembling the Dumbo, surrounded by sinister domestic animals, without the humans, walks in a flying car and has huge donkey friends. The series does not make sense to exist and the episodes are super boring. I only give 6 stars because I know this might even be interesting for children.
