This movie has much to recommend it. It's only an hour long, which means it won't bore kids beyond their attention span. Its message of treating those with differences or handicaps fairly and kindly is important for everyone to hear.
Best of all, it has some wonderful musical numbers. "Baby Mine" still brings tears to my eyes all these years later, and "When I See an Elephant Fly" is hysterically funny to those old enough to understand the word play. But "Pink Elephants" has got to be one of the most inventive and clever numbers ever devised. The constantly morphing elephants of this sequence were all hand-drawn -- no computers used at all!
Caution: This movie was made in the 1950's, and there is some ethnic stereotyping that can be offensive. For instance, the ringmaster, who has a thick Italian accent, is somewhat of a buffoon. Also, the musical number "When I See an Elephant Fly" is sung by crows that are clearly meant to be African Americans. They use some poor grammar and in other ways conform to common stereotypes of the times. However, I believe that little children won't understand the stereotype, or it can be dealt with by explaining that the crows don't go to school, so they don't talk correctly. Adults will know better and will be able to enjoy the clever word play in the song.
Another caution is that the stork delivers the circus animal babies. That might take some explaining!
