Snow White and Burpy?

Weekend Argus (Saturday Edition) - - NEWS -

LON­DON: They sound like taunts rather than Dis­ney char­ac­ters.

But dwarfs called Tubby, Baldy and Deafy were sketched as op­tions for Snow White’s fa­mous seven.

Walt Dis­ney him­self de­cided not to use them for the 1937 film, along with Shorty, Wheezy, Burpy and Lazy.

He chose the fi­nal line- up be­fore the film’s re­lease, re­ject­ing other names in­clud­ing Jumpy, Dizzy, Nifty and Puffy.

The early char­ac­ter sketches were among 32 pieces of art­work for the film that have come to light as part of an auc­tion sale.– Daily Mail
