Dopey's Drums

The SILLY SONG sequence in SNOW WHITE is ingenious and charming. Dopey gets a couple of starring moments playing percussion. Here are the digitally recontructed backgrounds featuring his curious array of instruments. Note the incredible detail!

The bright gold cymbals and cowbells are cel overlays. (I left these intact on purpose.) Everything else is indeed background art. Imagine: duck drums, owl temple blocks, swan and squirrel cymbal holders, sleigh bells and more!

I am likely going to be away from the computer for a day or so, and unable to blog during that time. I'll return to posting ASAP. I have more delightful artwork from MGM's Tom and Jerry cartoons.

So come back again, soon, and there will be more treats from animation backgrounds!
