Groovy Dumbo, 1974

The wonderful flying Dumbi (more than one, eh?) have been flying in circles since opening day. That's over 55 years, and boy are his ears tired. But his enthusiasm never wanes, which is part of what makes him so darn lovable.

I remember when shirts had collar points like that lady's shirt. I'm surprised that she isn't flying.

Ear exhaustion - is that why he stopped flapping them and just started gliding?

I never get tired of Dumbo shots!!

Yes Chuck! Ear exhaustion is a problem for flying elephants everywhere.

Connie, neither do I!

Dumbo holds that place in my heart as the first ride i took my daughter on at Magic Kingdom during her first trip at 4 and a half years old.

she was at the Museum of American History a few weeks ago in DC and had her picture taken with Dumbo that is on display there ;)

i think everyone loves Dumbo!
