OUAT – The Seven Dwarves and their names

Did you know?

In 1934, the names first selected were Wheezy, Jumpy, Baldy, Grumpy, Doc, Happy and Sleepy. Four of those names were retained. Dozens of other names were suggested, with a few being Hickey, Sniffy, Stuffy, Burpy, Tubby, Shorty and Dizzy.

 

Also, there was extra Dwarf named Deafy.

Deafy is a happy sort of fellow – he always tries to make clever remarks, but he misinterprets other people’s attitudes toward him. He feels, lots of times, that they are saying something about him, or that they have made some remarks, which they haven’t at all – he takes exception to the most ridiculous things. Throughout the picture Deafy and Grumpy  are always clashing. Deafy will pick up one word of the conversation in the early part, and whereas the conversation topic might have changed completely, he still sticks to the first thing that he heard, and in this way we hope to get some comical situations out of Deafy.
