Self-caricature of Ward Kimball sulking about a can of Campbell soup, a reference to the theme of this sequence.

Probably the most famous of the film’s cut sequences, this one, although fully animated, was never painted and never integrated into the final footage. The pencil animation was then “cleaned up” in the 1950s by young artists including Floyd Norman, and the result was filmed and integrated into a TV program, then repeated several times in home video extra features. The song is catchy, this time carried mainly by Happy, and it was here that the soap swallowed by Dopey in the previous sequence was kicked out of him, but although consistent with the rest of the film, this sequence only lengthened the already lengthy bath sequence. Walt Disney justified his decision in November 1937: “I’ve got to get back to the witch”.

To console him for having wasted 8 months working on this sequence, in which he was responsible for many scenes, Ward Kimball said that he was given the character of Jiminy Cricket in Pinocchio.

To capitalize on the work already done on several cut sequences, a short film project entitled Snow White Returns was studied shortly after the film’s release.

In 2023, Brandon Kouri attempted to recreate scenes 9, 15 and 34 of this sequence in color and posted the result on his YouTube channel. His recreations appear in this page.


Here is the sequence broken up into scenes with the corresponding animators.
