    Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs "Washing Song" Animation Drawings Sequence of 3 (Walt Disney, 1937).
    To accommodate their guest Snow White, the dwarfs go to the extraordinary length of washing up for dinner -- all except Grumpy, who stubbornly refuses. In this sequence of rare 12 field 5-peghole animation drawings, the dwarfs decide to casually circle around Grumpy and jump him, with the intent of dragging him to the water. In the drawing noted as 7A, we see Sneezy (with the big nose) as he whistles nonchalantly, looking up with his hands behind his back; you can see this in the online version of the "Bluddle-Uddle-Um-Dum" song, at the 1:38 mark. This single figure is 4" tall, drawn in graphite over brown pencil. A second later comes drawing #37A, where Happy has joined Sneezy, both making their way toward the reluctant dwarf; their graphite and brown pencil figure sizes are 4.25" and 5.5". The last drawing shows Sneezy, Happy, Bashful, and Sleepy as they begin to circle around their intended victim; the page is noted as 158A, drawn in graphite over orange pencil, with an overall image size of 9.75" x 4.75". It's seen in the sequence at the 1:53 mark. Condition ranges from Good (drawing #158A) to Very Good, with some paper toning, edge wear, and minor handling.
