Film Theory: Dumbo's Dank Adventure (Disney Dumbo)

  • Published: 09 May 2019

    People remember Dumbo for a two big things - one, the super sad moment where they cart his mother away from the circus and two, Dumbo's hallucination of the creepy pink elephants once he has a sip of strong drink. Except I don't think that is actually what happened in that scene. Theorists, we've done a lot of Disney theories but this might top the weird list. Today we find out what Dumbo actually consumed before he watch the Pink Elephants on Parade.

                      You know in the spanish version of the pink elefhants song there is a part that says "las ánimas del terror" and the ánimas are like dead people spirits who terrories people like family or drunk people like Dumbo in that moment

                                    That scene has been a part of my psyche since my earliest days. It was put on for me as a baby and at the time I couldn’t convey just how much it creeped me out. I’ve always remembered it but didn’t know what it was called I thought it was in Whinnie the Pooh

                                                      Question is it possible to mix hallucinogenic with alcohol and still be effective?

                                                        Matpat are you sure that your alcohol calculation is right?
                                                        Blackouts occur around 0.20?

                                                        I hit 0.20 according to my test device after half a bottle of wine but that it NOWHERE NEAR blackout which would be by my estimate about 1.8 thru 2.6. Or 3 to 4 bottles of wine.
