The movie focuses on the plight of a little elephant with big ears. After being teased and ridiculed by other circus animals and performers, as well as some spectators, his mother attacks the crowd, injuring workers (implied but not shown) and destroying property. Similar consequences occur when a circus act goes wrong. Another act, played for laughs, involves putting the elephant in a burning building while the clowns attempt to rescue him. Some characters are shown undressing in silhouette. The pain of the mother/son separation is poignantly portrayed. Accidental alcohol consumption results in drunkenness and hallucinations of pink elephants. A character smokes a cigar.
