The Dumbo Anomalies

Walt Disney's Dumbo was theatrically re-released four times prior to its home video debut in 1981. Its first theatrical re-release was in 1949, which was the first part of a double-bill with the 42-minute Saludos Amigos. Then Walt Disney showed an edited version of the film on the Disneyland television series in 1955, but the film was still theatrically re-released after that. One notable re-release was in 1976, as the film was on a double-bill with Australian live-action Disney production Ride a Wild Pony. (The film had been released in its home country a year earlier.)
