    This CG issue is tangential to the story issue.

    I'd rather see nothing than a bad sequel. Of course, this applies to any movie, but when the original is something as sweet as Dumbo, the crime of putting out a lousy sequel is elevated to a sin. The preview of the making of Dumbo 2 on the Dumbo 60th anniversary DVD sure didn't look good to me (storywise), but I'll reserve judgment since it was just a preview.

    Why don't they just give us a ten-second cartoon clip of somebody shooting Dumbo right through the head? That would be less painful.
