Animation Cel of Dopey Playing the Drums

Snow White & the Seven Dwarfs 1937 Disney Studios

Is that Dopey from walt Disney's Snow white and the Seven Dwarfs or is that Keith Moon? We'll find out when we see whether or not he blows up his drum set. This is a great Courvoisier cel and background from the Silly Song sequence where all of the dwarfs play their instruments. The background is formed by airbrushing on a wood grain and a paper overlay.

Despite being conceived late in production, Dopey proved to be the most endearing of the dwarfs. Dopey's appeal proved the success of silent characters in feature films, and prompted the studio to make Gideon from Pinocchio silent. At one point, Dopey was even considered for the title role in "The Sorcerer's Apprentice" in Fantasia before Mickey Mouse was chosen. However, many of Dopey's traits remain, including the long, floppy sleeves and playful attitude.
