Jumbo, Junior.
~ Mrs. Jumbo's only line in the movie to name Dumbo at first.

Mrs. Jumbo is the tritagonist from Disney's 1941 film Dumbo, a hexagonist of it's 2019 live-action remake and a minor character in Who Framed Roger Rabbit, Disney's Villains Revenge and House Of Mouse

She is Dumbo's mother.

She is voiced by Verna Felton in the movie, but only one speaking line.



Mrs. Jumbo tries to receive one of the parachutes containing baby animals, but she didn't. During her birthday, Mr. Stork offers him a parachute with a baby elephant revealing to be Dumbo (called "Jumbo Junior"). After the parade, Mrs. Jumbo gets mad with Smitty (one of the brats who make fun of Dumbo). This causes the Ringmaster to get mad, sending his men to stop Mrs. Jumbo. As a failure, she angrily gets the Ringmaster to avoid getting caged. One of the circus keepers, sent by the ringmaster, chained her foot. The ringmaster tries to calm her down, but she refused to listen to him. The ringmaster puts her in a cage, and a sign marked "Mad elephant". Mrs. Jumbo cannot be freed until Dumbo becomes a circus star, according to what the Ringmaster said. After the act, Dumbo reunited with Mrs. Jumbo during the song ("Baby Mine"). But she wasn't free yet, so Dumbo started to do an amazing trick the audience never saw before: flying. After that, Mrs. Jumbo was freed by the Ringmaster. Outside the movie, Dumbo asks the Ringmaster to free his mother for being a circus star. The Ringmaster agrees to free her. Before the show is over, Dumbo flies to Mrs. Jumbo reunited happily.

  • Verna Felton, her voice actress, also voiced the Elephant Matriarch. As Mrs. Jumbo speaks only one line in the film, Verna Felton mostly voiced the Elephant Matriarch.
