You Might be a Fairytale Dwarf If...

Have you ever felt a little out of place, or like you didn't belong? You might not. You might be a fairytale dwarf! After all, there are several fairytale dwarfs that didn't make the cut for Disney's Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs.

Six of the dwarfs have eyebrows modeled after Walt Disney’s. Happy was the exception, his eyebrows were white and bushy.

Think one of those dwarves might be you? Read on!

You might be a fairytale dwarf if... you like shiny things. A lot.

You might be a fairytale dwarf if... you like to wear heel-less sock on your head day after day after day.

You might be a fairytale dwarf if... you have a disproportionately large, red nose. The more bulbous the nose, the more likely that you are one!

...or that you're a Thornberry
You might be a fairytale dwarf if... you have a very one-track personality, such as can be comprehensively described in one, preferably child-friendly, word.

...or a short phrase.
You might be a fairytale dwarf if... you find yourself hanging out with cheerful, naive, anemic scullery maids a lot.

You might be a fairytale dwarf if... your name is Wheezy, Puffy, Stuffy, Biggo-Ego, Jumpy, Baldy, Nifty, Gabby, Stubby, Deafy, Dizzey, Hickey, Sniffy, Swift, Lazy, Puffy, Tubby, Shorty and Burpy and Burby. They all didn't make the cut!

It took almost two years to come up with the final renderings of the Seven Dwarfs.
Some original dwarf renderings
You might be a fairytale dwarf if... you're grown up, but still live with loads of roommates and can't quite seem to figure out how to cook your own dinner.

It's not always easy being a dwarf, even though you get to spend your days contentedly whistling while mining gems and everything else that sparkles. Sleepy was the only one of the seven dwarfs not to get a good-bye kiss from Snow White! It just goes to show that some 'wisdoms', like you snooze, you lose, apply to dwarves, too.

But the dwarfs aren't the only ones who don't always get what they want. To keep Snow White special and keep from ruining the illusion of the perfect princess, Disney kept voice actress Adriana Caselotti (the voice of Snow White) in a strict contract that prevented her from appearing in any other film or stage productions.

19-year-old Adriana Caselotti voiced Snow White. Walt wanted to keep Snow White's voice special, so he held Adriana to a very strict contract and she was never allowed to perform on stage or film again.

That was quite a sacrifice for the 19-year-old aspiring opera singer!

Would you give up the hope of a long career if you could, instead, of a 'one hit wonder' type thing like Adriana Caselotti did?

Which one of the dwarfs do you find most sympathetic?

Might you be a dwarf?
