The dwarfs from Disney's Snow White originally looked pretty creepy!
There's an amazing sale of rare Disney memorabilia taking place at Bonhams next month, with cool original animation cels and concept artwork.
I took a look through the catalogue, and there's soooo much I'd want to own if I could afford it. But I had to share this one item as it's really interesting and a little weird.
It's a concept drawing from pre-production on Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs, with early ideas of how the characters should look.
I think it makes Snow White look weirdly like a Japanese manga character, but still beautiful. But those dwarfs are really creeping me out! Dopey looks like he's wearing weird clown make-up, Sleepy looks really drunk, and who the heck are Baldy and Deafy?
It's a good job they replaced them with Bashful and Sneezy, otherwise I think a few people would be complaining about it today!
This drawing is such a great piece of Walt Disney history, whoever wins it at the auction is a lucky collector!
