Dopey Chopping a Tree Limb

From the Heigh Ho, Heigh Ho board at the California Adventure Snow White art exhibit, Dopey stands on a tree branch he is chopping off. A scene that did not make it in to the final movie.


This is described as a Story Sketch, it's graphite and colored pencil on paper. Note that it is Dopey. A number of gag sketches I will post later are of dwarfs, but not the final Seven Dwarfs, as this one is.

Notice also the comment written on the illustration, "STICK TONGUE OUT OF CORNER MOUTH".

To me this looks as if this sketch idea might fit in with the "Building a Bed" sequence that did not make it in to the final movie. The exhibit has a board dedicated to that sequence. I'll post pictures from that soon.
