For its 60th anniversary, Dumbo was announced for a DVD release (and its last VHS release ever) in June 2001, which was released on October 23, 2001. The DVD was discontinued in the summer of 2005, before being replaced by a new Big Top Edition.

A proposed sequel, titled Dumbo II, was mentioned at the end of this video, but the film's production was canceled by John Lasseter from Pixar Animation Studios.
