OUAT – Disney’s Snow White Comparison to Once Upon A Time

We all know that ABC and Disney are part of the same mother company, so when Once Upon A Time was written, Disney gave them creative license to do what they pleased – either to create new story lines or use existing Disney connections to the show.

Snow White’s story is the central plot in the show, thus in past episodes, connections have been found to the 1937 cartoon version. This episode was no different – there are some distinct similarities found in the episode Heart of Darkness.

1. Two Snow Whites looking very similar

2. Scene with a blue bird and a broom

3. Happy’s Mug

4. The song from Snow White called With a Smile and a Song was used in both Snow White and Once Upon A Time. Snow White (1937) sings the song to calm her fears since she was frightened by the trees. And Snow (Once Upon A Time) hummed the same song while trying to lure the blue bird to its “death”.

(This similarity only applies to the first 15 seconds of the Once Upon A Time clip – Snow (1937) did not try to kill the bird. 🙂
