     The 7D 

In General

  • Almighty Janitor: A ragtag group of jewel miners, and not only Jollywood's most trusted heroes, but the descendants of the kingdom's founding fathers.
  • Blond, Brunet, Redhead: Except for Sleepy, the dwarves fit this: Happy and Doc (blonds), Grumpy, Dopey and Sneezy (brunets) and Bashful (redhead)
  • Lunacy: All seven of them undergo a different transformation when the moon turns a certain color.
  • Totem Pole Trench: They've done this frequently while wearing a disguise, from pretending to be a bear, Queen Delightful or Maid Marzipan.

Happy

"Happy's songs are always sunny..."
  • Cartoon Conductor: Taken to a logical extreme in "The Jollywood Jam", where his conductor baton is accidentally swapped with Grim's new wand, magically putting his band in different costumes and locations. He was also able to make a group of screaming hills sing with a stick as a baton.
  • Casanova Wannabe: Or possibly The Casanova."By the way, ladies... I'm single!"
  • Cute Mute: He was this in "Whose Voice Is It Anyway", where he gives his voice away to Echo Canyon so he can keep a bet to not sing for 24 hours. Usually, though, he's very loud and upbeat. He also became this in "You Ain't Seen Nothing Yeti" when Hildy took away his voice and turned him into a mime. The other dwarves had to get Dopey to translate.
  • Dumb Blond: Has shades of this. For example, he thinks a yard sale means selling the yard itself.
  • Fun Personified: He's always trying to brighten up any situation.
  • Foil: His cheerful, upbeat nature stands out in contrast to Grumpy's irascibility.
  • The Fool: Impulsive and a little on the naive side, somewhat overly trusting, and on occasion refuses to listen to anyone else's advice.
  • Hair of Gold, Heart of Gold: Has blond hair and is the most jovial of the dwarfs.
  • In-Series Nickname: "Hap" on occasion. Hildy also calls him "The smiley one".
  • Keet: The Happy from Snow White was jolly. This Happy is hyperactive.
  • Literal-Minded: Sometimes. Like when he and his grandfather were told to "keep on their toes".
    • On one occasion, however, he mistakes a literal question for a rhetorical one, in the episode where they're all turned into frogs and are standing on top of each other to spy on the Glooms.
    Grumpy: How come I always gotta be at the bottom?
    Happy: 'Cause when you're at the top, you alienate people.
  • No Celebrities Were Harmed: It's still Richardson's voice, but he modelled his tone off of Jim Cummings.
  • The Pollyanna: Happy is often optimistic and usually looks on the fun side of things even when things go bad. A narrator in an episode says, that if he fell off a cliff, he'd be admiring the view.
    Happy: Wheeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee! (happily enjoying flying through the air after being catapulted by the Glooms.)
  • Perpetual Smiler: Still tries to keep it up even when he came close to snapping. This extends to grimaces and nervous grinning.
  • That Reminds Me of a Song: Almost everything reminds him of a song, much to Grumpy's chagrin. Taken to the extreme when he can't go a day without singing, so he has to lose his voice to Echo Canyon for a day to win a bet with Grumpy that he can go for a day without singing. He confesses his compulsion in "Dr. Jingleheimer", and that it especially happens when he gets nervous.
  • Sarcasm-Blind: Doesn't quite seem to understand Grumpy's wisecracks.
  • Sanity Slippage: Briefly goes a little unhinged after having his precious guitar stolen by a forest ranger.
  • Sensitive Guy and Manly Man: Sensitive Guy to Grumpy's Manly Man.
  • Stepford Smiler: Not normally, but he keeps up the constant smiling even when genuinely weirded out.
    Happy: (grinning) I'm uncomfortable on many levels!
  • Trademark Favorite Food: Pancakes. He also loves giggleberries, but can't be too careful; he once had the misfortune of eating too much and being sent into an uncontrollable laughing fit.
  • The Voiceless: In part of one episode, having (literally) thrown his voice into a canyon. In another, Hildy turned him into a mime.
  • Our Werewolves Are Different: Happy somehow can turn into a werewolf under the red moon, which is shown in the episode "Once In a Purple Moon"

Sneezy

"Sneezy's nose is always runny..."
Voiced by: Scott Menville
  • Adorkable: He's polite, kind, upbeat and with a hint of Sickly Neurotic Geek. He's a pretty popular character among fans because of it.
  • A Day in the Limelight: "Sneezin' Season" where he's worried he might be allergic to Grumpy, and "The Big Bad Sneezy," where the Big Bad Wolf tricks him into joining the "Huff'n'Puff Incorporated Demolition Firm," which specializes in blowing down pig's houses. The episode "Take Your Pet to Lunch Day" also focuses on his inexplicable animal allergies and him getting a pet dragon.
  • Beware the Nice Ones: Second only to Grumpy in being the most outspoken of the dwarfs.
  • Disguised in Drag: Dresses up as Little Red Riding Hood to fool the Big Bad Wolf, and ad Queen Delightful (together with Dopey) to fool the Glooms.
  • Noodle Incident: Somehow started a dance craze with his sneezes. Not to mention the sand castle he made. 2,000 sand crabs live there now.
  • Sneeze of Doom: One of his trademarks, of course. Occasionally the other dwarfs weaponize it — the heaviest things that can't possibly be moved fly away when Sneezy sneezes. He weaponizes it himself in "Take Your Pet to Lunch Day".

Dopey

"Dopey's gags are always funny, heigh-ho for the 7D!"
  • Adorkable: His mannerisms and all around personality radiate of this.
  • Cute Mute: He can communicate through whistles, but doesn't talk. Even acknowledged in "Knick Knack Patty Whack" when they dress Dopey and Sleepy as a salesman, with Dopey as the top half. He's also able to translate for the other 5D when Happy is turned into a mime.
    Doc: I'll admit my plan had a few flaws.
    Grumpy: Like putting the one of us who doesn't talk on top? Yeah, that's a flaw.
  • Friend to All Living Things: He's very friendly, and has a knack for animals. Apparently, he can communicate with them.
  • Fluffy Tamer: He can tame dragons and glitterpillars.
  • Hidden Depths: Despite being called "Dopey" and being treated as more of a pet than a person, he has shown to be a good artist, pantomimer, and magician among other things.
  • Intelligible Unintelligible: Though he only communicates in whistles, the other 7D (except for Grumpy) can understand him.
  • Wholesome Crossdresser: Dopey has dressed as both Queen Delightful and Little Bo Peep.
  • Plucky Comic Relief: Provides many of the jokes in the series.
  • Raised by Wolves: He was raised by Grumpy's goat, Gizelle.
  • Shout-Out: His clothes deliberately resemble Wakko Warner's.
  • The Unintelligible: He communicates only in whistles and various odd sounds.
  • Youthful Freckles: Being the youngest dwarf and all.

Bashful

"Bashful's shy..."
Voiced by: Billy West
  • Adorkable: His shyness makes him a rather adorably awkward fellow.
  • A Day in the Limelight: "The Big Bash" focuses on Bashful who accidentally becomes a masked vigilante; "Bathtub Bashful" spotlights his being a terrific singer, but only when he's in the bath - cue fans of The Flintstones going "Does This Remind You of Anything?" Unlike Barney Rubble, however, it turns out Bashful can wail even when he isn't having a bath.
  • Catchphrase: "Floom!" whenever anything goes wrong.
  • Chameleon Camouflage: Bashful has the ability to blend in with his surroundings, due to his Shrinking Violet nature.
  • Clingy Jealous Girl: Gets this way in "Buckets" when he offers to keep an eye on Queen Delightful, which is Lord Starchbottom's job.
    Bashful: Beat it, bub. I already called dibs!
  • Cowardly Lion: He may be cowardly in most situations, but he steps up at times.
  • Dogged Nice Guy: Displays constant yearning for Queen Delightful.
    Bashful: She can't get enough of me.
    • In "The Jollywood Games", he competes in and wins a tournament in the hope that he can get a kiss from her (and he does, although she rejects him at first).
    • In "Chicken Soup for the Troll", he agrees to protect Queen Delightful but isn't enthusiastic about it, just compliant.
  • Dreadful Musician: Played with. He's only a good singer when he's in the bath. Out of the bath he sings horribly off key.
  • Hulking Out: He gets this and Hulk Speak under an orange moon.
  • Lovable Coward: Is described this way by a narrator in an episode: "He's not only scared of his shadow, his shadow is scared of other shadows and think about it... That's scared."
  • Messy Hair: Has a shock of golden-ginger hat hair underneath his hat.
  • Redhead In Green: Has ginger hair and wears green.
  • Screams Like a Little Girl: He has a high voice so his scream is even higher.
  • Shrinking Violet: Bashful is even more bashful than he was in the movie. He's so bashful that he usually hides with his hat sometimes being the only thing visible. His character here however includes being extremely scared than just simple shyness. He retains his romantic bashfulness though as he has a huge crush on Queen Delightful whose her very name being mentioned causes him to faint as shown in "The Big Bash".
  • Stealth Expert: He's very good at camouflaging himself into his surroundings and sneaking around.
  • Took a Level in Badass: In "The Big Bash". And again when he becomes a knight in "Knight School". And then when he almost beat Grim in "The Jollywood Games".

Doc

"And Doc is bright!"
Voiced by: Bill Farmer
  • Crazy-Prepared: In "The Long Long Winter", he packed several things for the dwarfs' journey up the mountain just in case the need arrived. These include a chicken detector, some cake mix, and a entire sled which he got Grumpy to carry.
  • Cool Hat: Doc's hat contains multiple retractable gadgets and knick-knacks that he pops out to use.
  • Depending on the Writer: Sometimes, such as in "The Very Important Thingy", he's the more quiet one who needs time and space to think about his plans. Other times, he's just as crass as his housemates.
  • Era-Specific Personality: Unlike his 1937 counterpart, Doc is more tech-savvy and is an inventor, and he doesn't stutter or say words wrong.
  • Intelligence = Isolation: Absolutely loves his housemates, but in "The Very Important Thingy", their rowdiness prevents him from being able to hear himself think, so he has to go all the way out to the desert to be able to draw up an invention. And that's when he starts missing the other dwarfs' voices.
  • Laughing Mad: In all his attempts to get across the bridge in "Planks But No Planks".
  • The Leader: He's the leader of the dwarfs.
  • My Greatest Failure: Blames himself for the lost 8th D, Stinky, falling into a gorge they tried to cross. Of course, Stinky made it out okay.
  • Omnidisciplinary Scientist: He is a whizz in pretty much every scientific field they need an expert in.
  • The Smart Guy: Doc in this depiction is even more of smart guy than he was in the movie (where he was a Small Name, Big Ego), being capable of creating various gadgets such as a chicken detector which he modified from a squirrel detector.
  • Smart People Wear Glasses: The smartest of the dwarfs who wears glasses.
  • Trauma Button: He had a harrowing experience in the past with a plank after his old friend Stinky went missing after falling from a plank over a gorge and was as good as dead. So every time someone suggested a plank he screamed NO PLANKS!!!

Sleepy

"Sleepy snoozes day and night..."
Voiced by: Stephen Stanton
  • A Day in the Limelight: "Sleepytime" focuses on Sleepy ironically being the only one awake, aside from Sir Yipsalot, to save Jollywood from a sleeping spell cast by the Glooms.
  • Comically Missing the Point: Is prone to this, perhaps because even when he's awake he's usually only half-there.
  • Companion Cube: Has a stuffed toy, "Mr. Hicklepips" he thinks is a pet. He thinks that "Mr. Hicklepips" talks to him.
  • Senior Sleep Cycle: He's clearly the oldest of all the dwarfs, with his long white beard, and he's always asleep or preparing to go to sleep.
  • Sleepwalking: Sleepy not only walks in his sleep. He also talks, trampolines, mines and eats Grumpy's goat cheese in his sleep.
  • Sleepyhead: Often falls asleep anywhere and anytime. Ironically, his worst nightmare is everyone being asleep but him.

Grumpy

"Grumpy's wound up in too tight, heigh-ho for the 7D!"
Voiced by: Maurice LaMarche
  • Attractive Bent-Gender: Comes off this way to a guard when disguised as Maid Marzipan in "Nicely Done and the 7D". Not so much to the Really Nice Guys, who think that Maid Marzipan has "really let herself go."
  • Big Eater: Signs up for Knight School only for the All You Can Eat Buffet.
  • Butt-Monkey: Grumpy is often the butt of many a joke.
  • Chick Magnet: In the episode where everyone's turned into frogs, all the witches, and the smoking hot visiting queen, all kiss him (and all refer to him as "the cute one").
  • The Comically Serious: The reason why he was chosen as the party clown for Queen Delightful's surprise party in "Surprise!" is that his seriousness as a clown is what makes him so funny.
  • Deadpan Snarker: Much more sardonic than his movie counterpart.
  • Depending on the Writer: How much of a jerk he is depends on the episode.
  • Disguised in Drag: Pretends to be Maid Marzipan (As a Totem Pole Trench with Sleepy as his lower half) to bail Dopey out in "Nicely Done and the 7D.
  • Fake Ultimate Hero: While he is responsible for various heroic acts, he sometimes takes credit for what the other dwarfs did (For example, summoning dragons, which Dopey was responsible for, not him.)
  • The Finicky One: The most sensible dwarf, yet the most inflexible, too.
  • Funny Afro: When he doesn't have miles of hair hidden under his hat.
  • Grumpy Bear: Per his name, he is often very grumpy.
  • Jerkass Ball: Sometimes he can be lazy, petty or overly egotistical.
  • Jerk with a Heart of Gold: Despite the fact that he can be rude, disrespectful or self-centered and acts like a "tough guy" most of the time, he's very loyal to the Queen and genuinely cares about his housemates enough to help them when they're in trouble.
  • Man of a Thousand Voices: He can do a spot-on impression of Bashful.
  • No Celebrities Were Harmed: His voice was partially inspired by Danny DeVito in Taxi.
  • Perpetual Frowner: A frown is often seen on his face. When he smiles it's usually a wry smirk.
  • Vitriolic Best Buds: With Happy. At worst, Grumpy finds him a nuisance. Other times, they get along pretty well. Sometimes he admits he even likes Happy.
    Happy: Why you always gotta be so grumpy?
    Grumpy: Cause o' you?
    Happy: Okay then!

     Allies 

Queen Delightful

  • Cool Crown: Queen Delightful's crown which not only serves as a perch for her parrot, but whose jewels also light up like an emergency siren when she enters one of her "tizzies".
  • The Ditz: Nice lady, but a few gemstones short of a mine.
  • Literal-Minded: She tends to take certain sayings and words literally.
  • Nice Girl: She's a sweet and easygoing person.
  • Quirky Curls: She has sort of a "clown" hairstyle to fit her whimsical personality.

    Queen Delightful: That's quite a growth spurt, Teensy. (to Lord Starchbottom) LORD STARCHBOTTOM!!

Lord Starchbottom/ Dillard Gherkin

Voiced by: Paul Rugg
  • Fake Aristocrat: He pretends to be royalty when in fact he's from a working class background.
  • Hypocritical Humor: Often during the Confession Cam he's claims to have everything under control. Then he's shown running around panicking and screaming.
  • Line-of-Sight Name: He named himself "Starchbottom" after his childhood nickname.
  • Lovable Coward: He's prone to freaking out, but it's part of his charm.

Sir Yipsalot

  • Amplified Animal Aptitude: Has been shown to be a talented painter in "The Fairest In The Land", a talented dancer in "Bathtub Bashful", and even called upon the 7D (or Sleepy the One D, in this case) when he realized something had gone wrong in "Sleepytime".

Magic Mirror

Not-So-Magic Mirror

Voiced by: Wallace Shawn

Buckets

Voiced by: Kate Micucci
  • Cute Ghost Girl: She’s a ghost, and she’s as cute as a button.
  • Fog Feet: She has a genie-like ghostly tail instead of feet.
  • Glowing Eyes of Doom: She gets these at the end of her lullaby to Grumpy. Subverted, as no one was in any danger at all.
  • Ink-Suit Actor: She not only resembles Kate Micucci, but plays the ukulele like her as well.
  • Nightmare Fetishist: Her idea of a soothing lullaby consists of things like gargoyles and “howling red-eyed zombie sheep”.

     Antagonists 

The Glooms

  • Happily Married: In the early episodes. Later Hildy became much more abusive towards Grim and less genuinely affectionate.

Hildy Gloom

Voiced by: Kelly Osborne
  • Baby Talk: Whenever she wants Grim to do something and feels like asking nicely.
  • Big Bad: She's the one in charge between the two most of the time.
  • Butt-Monkey: Things seldom go right for her, even when she's not actively being wicked, and she's put through a Humiliation Conga in virtually every appearance.
  • Catchphrase: "I want it, I want it, I want it!"
  • Driven by Envy: Many of the Glooms' schemes are motivated by Hildy being envious of either Queen Delightful or someone else.
  • Evil Cannot Comprehend Good: In "Fairest in the Land" after Hildy's plan to turn Queen Delightful ugly to win the Fairest in the Land award fails, the Magic Mirror has to explain the concept of inner beauty to her.
  • Evil Brit: She is the main villain and has a cockney accent.
  • Hot Witch: A rather attractive witch though not "the fairest in the land" which makes her mad.
  • Ink-Suit Actor: Hildy bears at least some resemblance to Kelly Osbourne.
  • Slapstick Knows No Gender: Hildy receives just as much Amusing Injuries as Grim.
  • Why Did It Have to Be Snakes?: In "For the Love of Cheese", Hildy can't stand slimy icky things like frogs, lizards, and tapioca, which ironically are things people commonly associate with witches in fairy tales.
  • Womanchild: She is often prone to temper tantrums and generally acting like an immature adult especially when things don't go her way.

Grimwold Gloom

Voiced by: Jess Harnell
  • Adorkable: His goofiness makes him adorable.
  • The Ditz: He's not particularly bright.
  • Henpecked Husband: His wife is clearly the one who wears the pants in the relationship.

Dirk Dumphrey

Voiced by: Phil Hendrie
  • Creepy Crossdresser: Listen to Dirk's words when he speaks and you'll discover that he likes to wear all sorts of skirts and does so when he dresses up as a waitress for another job.
