Fifty ideas for the dwarfs' names and personalities were listed in the film's proposal. The list included all of the names finally included except Dopey and Doc (Dopey being the last to be developed). Some of the dwarves were: Awful, Biggy, Blabby, Dirty, Gabby, Gaspy, Gloomy, Hoppy, Hotsy, Jaunty, Jumpy, Nifty, and Shifty. Sneezy was a last-minute replacement for Jumpy.
Convinced that it would fail, the Hollywood film industry labeled the film 'Disney's Folly'.
The 'special' Academy Award granted to the picture consisted of one regular sized award and seven smaller sized awards.
