On a side note, this short was something of a one man show-the only animator on this short was dedicated Fleischer employee Roland "Doc" Crandall, as a reward for his years of hard work at the studio. It took Crandall just six months to complete the seven-minute short.
Tropes Used In This Short:
- Body Horror: Bimbo defeats the Evil Queen (or the dragon-creature she was turned into) by turning her inside out.
- Composite Character: Koko and Bimbo take the roles of both the huntsmen who are forced to kill Snow White and Prince Charming (more or less)
- Creepy Jazz Music: When Snow White (Betty Boop) is killed by the witch, Calloway (as Koko the Clown) sings a haunting rendition of "Saint James Infirmary", while the witch transforms Koko into a weird ghost-like monster.
- Deranged Animation: One of the Fleischer's most bizarre works outside of "Swing You Sinners!" and "Minnie the Moocher."
- Disproportionate Retribution: OFF WITH HER HEAD! For being prettier than the queen.
- Exposed to the Elements: Despite the snowy weather, Betty still wears her short skirted flapper dress and never shows any signs of being cold.
- God Save Us from the Queen!: The Big Bad of the short is a vain queen obsessed with being "the fairest in the land".
- In Name Only: The short starts out pretty faithful to the Grimms fairy tale, but around the middle it drifts off so far, it's advised to consider this cartoon strictly as a Betty Boop short (even the poisoned apple is nowhere to be seen.)
- Magic Mirror: The Queen's hand mirror. It comes to life when the Queen talks to it.
- One-Winged Angel: Near the end of the short, the mirror turns the Queen into a dragon who chases after Betty, Koko and Bimbo.
- Public Domain Animation
- Random Events Plot: People tend to randomly turn into dragons and/or a frying pan roasting eggs.
- Rotoscoping: Used to animate Koko.
