144. November 6, 2010 - Dumbo (1940)

Wow, this could absolutely not be made today. Racist crows, faceless black characters (literally faceless), forced animal labor, animal cruelty - the list goes on and on. This was only the second or third Disney movie, so maybe animation was still too new of a medium for anyone to pick up on those things, or care. Though, Fantasia was made the same year and they got slapped by the Production Code. And yep, "Baby Mine" still makes me cry.

Here's a link to my first entry.
