MEDIUM: Original Production Drawing
IMAGE SIZE: 12" x 10"
PRODUCTION: "The Silly Song", Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs, 1937
ABOUT THE FILM: "Yodel-ay-he-hoo, yodel-ay-he-hoo, yodel-ay-e-ay-e-ay-he-hoo." The Dwarfs have broken out their instruments to sing a happy, happy song with Sneezy featured playing the lute in this original animation drawing from Walt Disney's first animated feature film Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs. Given his severe hay fever, a string instrument is definitely the right choice for Sneezy as he likely would be unable to play a wind instrument such as a flute without erupting into an uncontrollable bout of sneezing! This this tuneful frame can be spotted beginning near the 52:10 mark of the film as he performs "The Silly Song" with his brothers, though on screen Sneezy's image is mostly obscured by Happy and Dopey's cheery dance. Hand-drawn in graphite and colored pencils, Sneezy stands full-figured and pleasingly centered on the animation paper with a character size of approximately 3.75" x 4.75" including his lute which resembles a duck.
