Dumbo - Disney

4.  'Dumbo' - 1941

Dumbo was intended to make up for the losses of Fantasia

 To re-establish Disney’s role as the provider of sweet, sentimental animated films for children. It worked. 

It was based not on a fairy tale but instead a popular children’s book.

 Dumbo is the tale of a circus elephant baby with gigantic ears, laughed at by the other elephants but loved by his mother. When his mother gets angry at cruel children taunting her baby, she’s locked away from him, and Dumbo gets the most humiliating jobs in the circus -- until he and his friend Timothy Mouse discover that his huge ears allow him to fly.

Bambi - Disney

5.  ‘Bambi’ - 1943 

The last of the truly great early Disney animated films, Bambi is the story of a fawn growing to adulthood amid the dangers and joys of the forest, haunted by an unseen villain: man. 

Disney directed Bambi's animators to base their characters on real animals.
