Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs

Revealing mistake: The film contains a few animation glitches which usually only last a frame or two. These could have been fixed during the film's digital restoration, but were left in, presumably because the restorers didn't want to alter a single detail of the original animation. A prime example occurs when Snow White is leading the animals to the Dwarfs' cottage. As she approaches the door, a fawn steps in front of her, and its head completely disappears for one frame.

Continuity mistake: When Snow walks into the bedroom upstairs there is nothing beside Dopey's bed, but when Doc reaches his arm through the open door while holding the lantern, there's a window and dresser beside Dopey's bed.

Trivia: When making this movie, Walt Disney turned the script into a comic at first and they used these "comic strips" to move around shots and scenes, replace things and generally see what would work or not. This technique is now known as storyboarding and pretty much every single movie production uses it.

More trivia for Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs

Question: When the animals go to tell the dwarves about the witch trying to kill Snow White, why is Grumpy all of a sudden concerned about her? He's the first one to say that they have to go rescue her and then is leading them back to the cottage, although up to that point he hasn't liked her at all.

Answer: He's oppositional, sure, but that's just who he is. It doesn't mean he doesn't like her.
