Snow White is a beloved story for children of all ages, and it has been innumerable times adapted for the theatre and television. But who exactly are Snow White’s seven dwarfs and what are seven dwarfs names? Here is a breakdown of their identities, as well as other interesting facts about this famous story that you may not have heard.
The animated picture Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs was a big success. It was chosen as one of the first 25 films for preservation by the National Film Registry, and it also reached the American Film Institute’s list of the 100 Greatest American Films. Here’s the complete list of awards.
The seven dwarfs names from Snow White are Dopey, Grumpy, Bashful, Happy, Sleepy, Sneezy and Doc.
Bashful is one of the seven dwarfs in Snow White. He’s very shy and doesn’t like to be in the spotlight. However, he’s a great help to Snow White and is always there to lend a hand.
Dopey is the second dwarf. He’s always sleepy and can’t seem to stay awake long. But he’s a great friend and helps out wherever he can.
Doc is the third dwarf. He’s very smart and knows a lot about medicine. He helps Snow White with her illnesses and even makes her some potions.
Grumpy is the fourth dwarf. He’s always grouchy and doesn’t want anything to do with anyone. But he really helps out when it comes to helping Snow White with her tasks.
As the name implies, Happy is the opposite of our grumpy character. You’ll never see him without his lovely smile and cheerful demeanor. In the film, Otis Harlan plays Happy. With his big smile and puffy size, this dwarf is easily identified on the screen.
Sneezy is the sixth dwarf. He always has trouble staying awake and can’t seem to stop yawning. But he’s always happy to help out when he can. Sneezy and Doc are identical, as are Dopey and Bashful.
Sleepy is the seventh dwarf. He’s really slow when it comes to getting up in the morning. Sleepy is the only one of the Seven Dwarves who does not have a given name in Snow White. The character is known by his epithet, ” sleepy,” and this is how the names of the other six dwarves are derived.
