Song lyrics

[SNOW WHITE spoken]
Now, you wash the dishes.
You tidy up the room.
You clean the fireplace.
And I will use the broom

Just whistle while you work
And cheerfully together we can tidy up the place.
So hum a merry tune
It won't take long when there's a song to help you set the pace.

And as you sweep the room
Imagine that the broom.
Is someone that you love
And soon you'll find you're dancing to the tune.
Oh, no, no, no! Put them in the tub.
When hearts are high the time will fly
So whistle while you work.

Disney Studios in Burbank was built with the profits from Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs.

Publicity material relates that production employed 32 animators, 102 assistants, 167 "in-betweeners", 20 layout artists, 25 artists doing water color backgrounds, 65 effects animators, and 158 female inkers and painters. 2,000,000 illustrations were made using 1500 shades of paint.

The trees that grab Snow White's dress were based on unique Garry Oak trees, found on Southern Vancouver Island, British Columbia, Canada. Walt Disney had toured through this area and noted their eerie, twisting shapes.
