The StoryIn the elephant car of the Circus Train, Mr. Stork delivers Mrs. Jumbo's bright-eyed newborn - a baby who will soon be known as Dumbo.The ArtworkDumbo originated with the galleys of a story by Helen Aberson and Harold Pearl, adapted for the screen by Joe Grant and Dick Huemer. The critical reaction to Dumbo was positive, since many critics of the day felt that Dumbo was a return to its roots for Disney. Disney animator Ward Kimball felt that "the Disney cartoon reached its zenith with Dumbo. Every story element meshes into place, held together with the great fantasy of a flying elephant."This is a limited edition
sericel depicting characters from Walt Disney's Dumbo. This sericel edition, "Special Delivery," composses Sequence 3.2, Scenes 18 and 60 of the classic 1941 animated feature into a representative scene.
