The 47 Dwarfs

COMING SOON: THE LISTS OF NOTE BOOK!


In the 1930s, as they began work on the big-screen adaptation of Snow White by the Brothers Grimm, the writing team at Disney compiled the following list of potential names for the seven dwarfs — characters who, in the original story, were unnamed. As we now know, Bashful, Dopey, Grumpy, Happy, Sleepy, and Sneezy were picked. The name of their leader, Doc, was chosen at a later date.

Note: Some twenty years beforehand, in 1912, the story had been adapted for the Broadway stage by Winthrop Ames. In that production, the dwarfs were named Blick, Flick, Glick, Snick, Plick, Whick, and Quee.
