After the early 1980s prints of Dumbo were discontinued in 1984, Dumbo became a Walt Disney Classics title on December 3, 1985, with a price tag of $29.95 (originally $84.95). This price lasted through January 31, 1986, and Dumbo returned to its list price of $84.95.
On later prints of this VHS since October 1986, Dumbo finally had the 1984 Walt Disney Classics logo. In addition, NCI closed captions were included. Of course, the original 1985 VHS doesn't have closed captions on it, just like the Kirby: Right Back at Ya! Volumes 1 and 2 (and partially Volume 3) VHS tapes.
During sales in late 1986, Dumbo was once again reduced to $29.95, but then returned to its original price of $84.95, again, in early 1987. It remained in shelves along with Alice in Wonderland and The Sword in the Stone in 1988 when all other past titles were vaulted. Dumbo was later re-packaged with new cover artwork in 1989 and 1991, when it was sold at $24.99 for each copy, and was available like this until 1994. A DVS version of the film existed in 1992.
One of the true Disney masterpieces...the poignant animated classic about Dumbo, a baby elephant born with oversized ears. Snubbed and ridiculed by the other circus folks, he is befriended by a jocular mouse name Timothy. With luck, determination and an amazing amount of courage, Dumbo learns to soar as the high-flying star of the circus. Delightful, enchanting and touching, Dumbo remains one of the most popular, loveliest films from the master of animated entertainment.
Walt Disney's fourth full-length animated feature, Dumbo remains one of Disney's greatest masterpieces -- a heartwarming and inspirational tale overflowing with such memorable songs as "Casey Junior," "Baby Mine," and "When I See An Elephant Fly." When a slow stork finally delivers Mrs. Jumbo's pint-sized elephant, he's that talk of the circus. But with a pair of oversized ears, baby Dumbo is laughed at and ridiculed. With remarkable courage, and the help of his loyal friend Timothy Mouse, Dumbo overcomes all odds in a triumphant celebration of love and determination! The whole family will enjoy this timeless and touching story of a brave baby elephant with big ears..and an even bigger heart!
