Animation Cel of Dopey with Soap and Bubbles
Now is the time for everyone to wash their hands often. Let’s (not) take our instructions from Dopey. This is just a wonderful Courvoisier cel and background of our silent hero in a bubble, surrounded by bubbles, and vainly trying to grab the soap. Multi-cel set-up with effects cels of bubbles and soap.
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.
