!!Examples from [[Disney/SnowWhiteAndTheSevenDwarfs the Disney film]]:
* AccidentalInnuendo:
** When the dwarfs meet Snow White for the first time, Grumpy tells Doc to "Ask her who she is and what she's a-doin' here!" Of course, given his tendency to get words mixed up, Doc comes out with "[[{{Malaproper}} What are you and]] [[DoesThisRemindYouOfAnything who are you doin'?]]" Surprisingly enough, given the time period this film was made in, this is probably [[UrExample one of the earliest examples of this trope]].
** That turtle during "Whistle While You Work" looks like he's enjoying the chipmunk scrubbing close to his crotch area a little ''too'' much.
* AlternativeCharacterInterpretation:
** Snow White, depending on how you view her, is either [[StupidGood way too polite and altruistic for her own good]] or just plain TooDumbToLive.
** Also, The Queen in the book "Fairest of All"; an extremely dark WoobieDestroyerOfWorlds (to [[VideoGame/FinalFantasyVI Kefka]] levels) who, after being re-exposed to mental anguish caused by her father regarding not being beautiful at all and an extremely low self-esteem left her so broken and insane that she felt that killing her stepdaughter was the only thing left to match up to her abusive father's standards of beauty. Seems to nudge to the direction of the latter.
** Dopey might be an IdiotSavant, having difficulty in doing simple things but being a vastly accomplished musician.
* AndYouThoughtItWouldFail: Many people did; while in production, the film was often derided as "Disney's Folly". Those who worked with Disney, including his brother and wife, tried to talk him out of making the film, believing it would just end up being a complete flop. However, it became a huge hit when it was first released and is regarded as one of the greatest animated movies of all time.
* AwardSnub: Much to Walt's ire, he was awarded with an Honorary Oscar for this film, instead of the Best Picture award he coveted. After all it was ground-breaking for its time and even became the highest-grossing picture for a time (before being dethroned by ''Film/GoneWithTheWind''). This would be the first of [[AnimationAgeGhetto several animated films]] to not reach the Best Picture award.
* SugarWiki/AwesomeMusic:
** The [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uxHAvr9dHjw opening]] and [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=T5AmzJjLbJU ending]] sequences.
** Really, every song in the movie counts, but "[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0niwn2pOEno Some Day My Prince Will Come]]" is a standout. Its impossible not to get chills when the melody kicks in as Snow White wakes up at the end.
* BaseBreakingCharacter: Snow White is either seen as an adorable [[TheIngenue Ingenue]] hailed for her [[AllLovingHero loving heart]] and [[PurityPersonified ability to stay positive through the tough times]], or an unremarkable VanillaProtagonist panned for her [[TastesLikeDiabetes overly cutesy nature]] and [[UncannyValley out-of-place]] {{Rotoscop|ing}}ed design.
* BigLippedAlligatorMoment:
** "[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=B_beS2SauHE The Silly Song]]" segment; slightly justified in that they are celebrating Snow White and it leads to them wanting Snow White to tell them a story leading to one of the most memorable songs ever (Someday My Prince Will Come).
** There was a [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cr-OEaocgOU segment]] planned where the Dwarfs have soup after washing their hands and sing a song about... soup. If it had been put in the final product, it would have qualified for this trope.
** The Tree hallucination; it's quickly forgotten after Snow White finds her little forest friends.
* EarWorm:
** "Heigh-ho, heigh-ho, it's home from work we go..."
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cr-OEaocgOU "With a spoon, with a bowl, with the music in your soul..."]]
** "Whistle While You Work..."
* EnsembleDarkhorse:
** The Dwarfs in general, being distinct in personality and very humorous as well.
** Dopey, particularly around the time the film was originally released. Many predicted that he would become as big as WesternAnimation/MickeyMouse and WesternAnimation/DonaldDuck. It didn't quite turn out like that, but still, to think that it might have is impressive. Dopey was, in fact, the initial choice for the apprentice role in the ''Sorcerer's Apprentice'' sequence from ''Disney/{{Fantasia}}''. He was only replaced because Donald was the public's favorite Disney character at the time, and Walt Disney wanted Mickey back in that seat.
** Grumpy seems to have amassed a big following in recent times, to the point where a reasonable amount of merchandise is dedicated to him and his sourpuss attitude.
** The monstrous trees Snow White sees during her escape in the woods are still remembered as some of the scariest Disney characters ever created despite them being just hallucinations and thus not even real monsters.
* EvilIsSexy: The Queen, until she transforms herself into the hag.
* FirstInstallmentWins: The film often tops "best Disney film lists" despite [[Creator/WaltDisney Uncle Walt himself]] thinking of ''Disney/{{Bambi}}'' as his [[MagnumOpusDissonance Magnum Opus]].
* GeniusBonus: When the Dwarfs forcibly wash Grumpy and put a ring of flowers on his head, Sneezy comments that he smells like a petunia. In botany, petunias symbolize anger and resentment, {{meaningful|Name}} if your name happens to be Grumpy.
* GrowingTheBeard: This marks Disney's change from whimsical cartoons and into the full length, animated film genre capable of telling a longer, more complex story, not to mention the animation quality is a [[ArtEvolution drastic improvement]] of the previous shorts.
* HarsherInHindsight: Snow White wonders if the seven "children" don't know how to clean because they don't have a mother and are orphans. While saying how awful that would be, a [[{{Disney/Bambi}} fawn]] nuzzles its mother.
* HilariousInHindsight:
** There are references to other Grimm fairy tales throughout the film. Initially, Snow White is forced to wear rags and work as a scullery maid, like Cinderella, and in case you overlooked the reference, she even has a flock of doves helping her like in the Grimm version. Later, the prince awakens Snow White with a kiss, which was borrowed from the Grimms' retelling of Sleeping Beauty, as in the original Snow White merely coughs up the apple. ''Disney/{{Cinderella}}'' and ''Disney/SleepingBeauty'' were respectively the next fairy tales Disney would adapt in films (and all three were the only fairy tale films Walt himself was still alive to work on).
** When the Seven Dwarfs first see that someone's in their cottage, they exclaim, "[[Disney/{{Pinocchio}} Jiminy Crickets!]]" This was actually a common GoshDangItToHeck version of "[[Literature/TheBible Jesus Christ!]]" for the time, which led to Disney using it as the name for [[TheConscience the cricket]].
* HollywoodHomely: Many who watch the movie disagree with the Magic Mirror and think that the queen is much fairer than Snow White.
* HoYay: The seven dwarves are the source of this in the film even though a lot of them showed attraction to Snow White. First off they all live together in a cottage. All of their name carved beds except Doc's are closer to each other than they should be. The dwarves also bathe together (albeit with their clothes on). Doc and Grumpy also bicker LikeAnOldMarriedCouple sometimes, especially in a deleted scene.
* HypeBacklash: While still a respected film, it gets this for all of Disney's touting it as "the one that started it all."
* LoveToHate: If the dwarfs didn't steal the show, then the Queen in all her evil hamminess did, especially in her hag form.
* MemeticMutation:
** "Magic Mirror on the wall..."
** In the 2010s, the Evil Queen became a veritable FountainOfMemes on Website/{{Twitter}} and Website/{{Tumblr}}, where images of her (in witch mode) were increasingly being shared as relatable memes. [[http://i199.photobucket.com/albums/aa40/obeset/111302-Snow-White-evil-queen-laughing-cFPy_zpsp4l8otzx.gif Gifs of the Queen lowering herself into the hatch to her dungeons]] became especially popular.
** "What ? Thirsty ? HAVE A DRINK !"
* {{Moe}}: Snow White herself. Dopey also has shades of it.
* SugarWiki/MomentOfAwesome: At the film's climax, Grumpy completes his CharacterDevelopment by leading the dwarfs in [[RoaringRampageOfRevenge chasing the Queen down after she poisons Snow White]].
* MoralEventHorizon: The Queen definitely crosses it: She wants to kill an innocent girl (who is probably 16 or less[[note]]The Franchise/DisneyPrincess material states that she is the youngest Princess, at 14[[/note]]), and for what?!? Just because she's more beautiful than her. And if that's not enough she plans to poison her with the Poisoned Apple making her fall into the Sleeping Death hoping the dwarves [[AFateWorseThanDeath will bury her alive]].
** And it was also originally planned that she tried to force the Prince - the guy who loved Snow and who Snow pined after - to marry her. And when he refused, she would try to drown him in the dungeon.
** The Queen crossed it long ago when she hired a huntsman to try and kill Snow White. How? Because she tells the hunter that in order to make sure Snow White's dead, she asks him to ''cut her heart out and put it in a box to present her with''! And remember - this is her ''stepdaughter'' we're talking about.
*** Could have been even worse. In the original fairy tale she [[ImAHumanitarian salts and eats the heart]].
*** Heck, in the earliest versions of the tale, she was actually the original ''biological mother'' of Snow White.
* {{Narm}}: The [[http://www.impawards.com/1937/snow_white_and_the_seven_dwarfs_ver3.html poster]] used to promote the 1975 and 1983 re-releases seems to show Snow White singing to some bluebirds, but some might think it looks more like her screaming at the not-that-scary sight of them.
* OlderThanTheyThink: This was '''not''' the first animated feature film, as many people are led to believe; that title goes to the [[MissingEpisode lost]] Argentinian political satire ''El Apóstol'', made in 1911 by Quirino Cristiani. ''Snow White'' was, however, the first '''cel-animated''' feature film, which utterly dominated animation for decades afterwards.
* OneSceneWonder:
** The tree hallucination.
** The Queen's pet raven perched on a skull appears just in one scene.
* RonTheDeathEater: Snow White herself agreed to cook and clean for the dwarves in return for them giving her shelter, and acts like a mother figure to them, not letting them eat unless they wash up for instance. Despite this, many negative reviewers make the the dwarves out to be abusive, and Snow White to be a slave forced to cook and clean for them against her will.
* SeinfeldIsUnfunny:
** Virtually any scene of significance in this movie has been copied, homaged, parodied and ripped off incessantly for over ''70 years''. Best advice to parents is to show it to the kids quickly.
** Many see this as "just another [[TastesLikeDiabetes sappy]] Franchise/DisneyPrincess film", failing to realize how truly groundbreaking a project this was when released. To put into perspective: At the time, Disney was not even big enough to be considered part of "Poverty Row" or the "Little Three" - movie studios controlled distribution, and ''actors''. This movie was made by ''none'' of Hollywood's studios, and did not employ their stars - at the time, something like that was unheard of. It was called "Disney's Folly" for a ''reason''.
** Fans of ''Franchise/DisneyPrincess'' films often find this film boring and bland compared to future films. This film started and paved the way for much of the material in future ''Princess'' films.
* {{Squick}}: Sneezy's deleted line in "The Silly Song" where he mentions that after he was born, he used his whiskers as a "didee"[[note]](diaper)[[/note]]. The effect is somewhat lessened by him sneezing while delivering the line, but it's still unsanitary.
* TastesLikeDiabetes: Snow White. Many people find her exaggerated {{Moe}} traits and sickeningly sweet attitude insufferable.
* TearJerker: [[TearJerker/SnowWhiteAndTheSevenDwarfs Has its own page]].
* ToughActToFollow: Very few of the animated films made during Walt's lifetime were as successful.
* UglyCute: The dwarfs aren't exactly lookers, but they're just so genial, charming, and eager to please that it's hard not to love them.
* UncannyValley: ''Even back then'', everyone loved the cartoony dwarfs and noted how stiff and wooden looking the rotoscoped human characters were.
* VisualEffectsOfAwesome: The animation and visuals have aged quite well for a movie made in the ''late 1930s''.
* WhatAnIdiot: As ''Website/{{Cracked}}'' pointed out, the Queen could have just ''actually killed'' Snow White instead of betting on her sleeping forever. Especially since she would just retain her beauty that way.
** Being buried alive would kill Snow White, [[JustForFun/TropesExaminedByTheMythBusters according to the "Buried Alive" myth tested by the]] Series/MythBusters.
* WhatDoYouMeanItsNotForKids: Possibly the UrExample. In fact, Walt ''never'' intended "Disney" to become synonymous with being kid-friendly (family-friendly, yes, but not kid-friendly. "Family-friendly" implies that it's adult, but still respects its child audience by not going too far). Animation was just easier for all the detail he wanted to include in the story.
