Giddy is one of the secondary antagonists from the 1941 Disney film, Dumbo. She is one of the elephants closely linked to the Elephant Matriarch.


Giddy is very talkative and relatively the nicest amongst the other female elephants towards Dumbo at first when his ears were exposed. But like all the other elephants, she still teased with Dumbo for his ears and she's very goofy. Despite her talkative ways, she has the fewest lines of all the elephants.

Role in the film

Giddy is seen a little while after the movie's beginning, inside one of the circus train cars with the other elephants, plus the Matriarch. She also is the first to laugh with Dumbo and when he's given his name for his big ears. With her trunk, she is seen touching and playing with his ears until Mrs. Jumbo slaps her trunk to let go. While she does not do much, she always is apart of the central gossip between the Matriarch and the other central female elephants.

Giddy is apart of the "Pyramid of Pachyderms" act as she is the last elephant, balanced percariously atop the pyramid. During the end of the act, when Dumbo tripped and knocked over the pyramid, she struggles to maintain her balance, landing on top of the two elephants below her twice. She is injured greatly when the pyramid collapses as the train leaves. Giddy was seen on the left beside Matrirch with her injured trunk. She is seen again towards the end as Dumbo sprays her and the other elephants with peanuts. She is also apart of the final version of "When I See an Elephant Fly", sung by the main female elephants.



  • The animation of Giddy and the other gossipy elephants getting spooked by Timothy Q. Mouse was recycled for use in Goliath II for the scene with the elephant herd getting spooked by a mouse.
  • Giddy is the only elephant who doesn't appear with Prissy (with orange headwear), Catty and the Matriarch in the House of Mouse episode, Super Goof.
  • Like the other elephants within the Matriarch's close circle, Giddy's name isn't revealed in the movie. Her name is only seen on concept artwork in the gallery on the Dumbo DVD.
