Baby Elephants

I had a troubled relationship with Disney's Dumbo when I was a kid. I loved, loved Dumbo and his big ears and the style of the design, the story etc. But I could not, my dear gosh - stand the teasing of Dumbo. How not just humans teased him, but also the other elephants. And how him and his momma was treated so unfair, and how she was locked up in that tiny trailer cart unable to care for Dumbo. As you can see, I'm damaged. Didn't help much when Dumbo had those weird dreams including bubble pink elephants and crazy dancing either.

But they did however manage to make the most heartwretching song of all times. Just watch the video at the end of this post and you'll know what I mean.

Anyway. Elephants are cool. :)
Here's a couple of kiddies.

  12. I have never seen the whole movie of Dumbo, but I don't think I want to after watching this movie clip. I just watched it and cried from start to finish. Hits you when youh have your own kids I think, although I've always been sensitive to other's sadness. Btw, I like your elephants tho! :-)
