Added DiffLines:

** And again when Snow White mournfully wonders whether their cottage's occupants are orphaned children without a mother, with the shot panning to [[Disney/{{Bambi}} a fawn nuzzling it's mother]].

* VileVillainSaccharineShow: A Disney staple. The Queen takes her jealousy to dark extremes, treating it like an act of war. She is content with either having her rival's heart torn out of her corpse as trophy or be buried alive when a poison apple turns out to be a deep sleep curse. She's also a potential sorceress as well as an implied torturer. This jarringly contrasts with the rather whimsical vibe of the rest of the film.

* ItWillNeverCatchOn: Upon viewing the film, Leon Schlesinger (owner of rival animation studio [[WesternAnimation/LooneyTunes Termite Terrace]]) remarked, "I need an animated feature like I need two assholes." He wasn't the only one - many animation execs at the time were extremely skeptical that feature-length animation could turn a profit.

Today, Disney is one of the largest and most profitable media companies on the ''planet'', and animated films are the rule more than the exception, while Schlesinger's legacy, the LooneyTunes, aren't doing quite so well.

* HypocriticalHumor: "Now I'll be the fairest one of all!"... after transforming herself into a hag. Presumably there was a way to change back, because otherwise this makes no sense.

* FunnyBackgroundEvent: It's tricky to spot and certainly unintentional, but when Snow White enters the dwarfs' house for the first time (12 seconds into [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MaJ8nL2ICes this video]]) her forest friends creep in with her. The animators apparently forgot which animals they were drawing, because one rabbit hops behind another and comes out a squirrel.

* WaitingSkeleton: As the Queen is leaving the castle to kill Snow White, she walks past a prison cell containing a skeleton on the ground, reaching for a jug just out of its grasp. When the Queen sees it, she laughs and says "Thirsty? Have a drink!" before kicking the jug over so that it hits the skeleton and shatters it.

** Grumpy has a comically moody bassoon-based theme of his own for when he saunters about. This theme is perhaps heard most prominently when he storms out and sits on the barrel just outside the cottage after Snow White tells the dwarfs to wash up.



* {{Manchild}}: Dopey, who tends to act like a toddler or a dog.
* ManlyTears: Grumpy when Snow White (apparently) dies.

** Averted in the "Silly Song". Bashful sings "I chased a polecat up a tree/Way out upon a limb". How many North American viewers know what a polecat is? (It's one of several Old-World members of the weasel family, though the term is sometimes also applied to the American black-footed ferret).

** Just slightly. While the Queen is dramatically running down the stairs, her cape seems to have extended to be the size of a wall to wall carpet.

* {{Rotoscoping}}: All the human characters are rotoscoped, aside from the Dwarfs (who arguably aren't truly "human"). The Queen's witch form notably avoids rotoscoping. There is one scene where Creator/GrimNatwick, one of Snow White's head animators, ditched the rotoscope and animated Snow White running down the stairs and checking the soup on his own. Walt himself praised that moment, and wished for all of Snow White's human animation to be that good (although no one bothered to tell him it wasn't rotoscoped).

* SatelliteLoveInterest: The Prince. One of the video releases said that the original intent was for the Prince to be captured by the Queen while looking for Snow White and have scenes involving his imprisonment and breakout. They were dropped in favor of the climax focusing on the dwarfs. [[Disney/SleepingBeauty Prince Phillip]] later gets to do all these things though.
