Snow White

See Disney Princess

The Prince

Voiced by: Harry Stockwell

The handsome prince that hears Snow White's song and falls in love with her.

  • Distressed Dude: In the comic adaptation and an earlier screenplay treatment, he was to have been captured by the Queen and entertained by dancing skeletons. This was later used in Sleeping Beauty, where Prince Philip is held captive by Maleficent.
  • Flat Character
  • Knight in Shining Armor
  • Let's Duet: He first introduces himself to Snow White by joining in her song.
  • Love at First Sight: He falls in love with Snow White as soon as he meets her.
  • Nice Guy
  • No Name Given: His name is never revealed. Alleged names for him are Frederick and Florian. In an earlier screenplay, he gave himself the name Prince Buckethead after he saw Snow White making a pretend prince with that name.
  • Non-Standard Character Design: Disney animators found it difficult to draw male characters at the time, which is why he had his screentime drastically reduced by the final cut of the film. He is noticeably (much like Snow White herself) rounder in appearance and non detailed compared to later Disney Princes.
  • Ornamental Weapon: He has a dagger at his side, but never uses it.
  • Satellite Love Interest: One of the video releases said that the original intent was for him to be captured by the Queen while looking for Snow White and have scenes involving his imprisonment and breakout. They were dropped in favour of the climax focusing on the dwarfs. Prince Phillip later gets to do all these things though.
  • Self-Deprecation: The reason he accepts the name Prince Buckethead, as it's more honest than flattering.
  • Serenade Your Lover: He introduces himself to Snow White this way.
  • Singing Voice Dissonance: His singing voice is much richer and more operatic than his speaking voice.
  • True Love's Kiss: His kiss wakes Snow White.
  • Younger than They Look: Barely looks old enough to be carrying a sword!
