Interview with the Seven Dwarfs

Interview with the Seven Dwarfs

You know the fairy tale of “Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs,” right? But little has been written about the personalities of the Seven Dwarfs. I will remedy that right now.

If you read my Interview with Snow White,” you are aware that her evil stepmother tried to murder her because she was jealous of her beauty. The Seven Dwarfs sheltered Snow and the Handsome Prince rescued and married her, and they lived happily ever after.

Walt Disney's "Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs"
Walt Disney's "Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs"

But what about the Seven Dwarfs? Did they, too, live happily ever after?

Read on and I will share what I have learned. I was alone in my office as my entire workforce (one part-time employee) had left for the day.

There were seven knocks on my door and the door opened. I looked out over my desk but did not see anyone.

Then I lowered my gaze two feet and there stood seven small men about three feet tall dressed in vintage, little people clothing.

Yes, you guessed it. The Seven Dwarfs had paid me a visit.

me – Come in, come in. I have heard a lot about you. It is my pleasure to meet you all in person. Please sit down. What can I do for you?

Doc – I guess I’ll be the spokesdwarf since I’m the oldest.

Grumpy – and the bossiest!

Happy – Come on now, guys, can’t we all just get along?

me – I will be happy to talk with each of you but one at a time. Okay?

Doc – Fair enough. We enjoyed your interview with Snow White and we are aware of your background. It was Snow who recommended that we find you. We all have different issues.

Grumpy – Speak for yourself, John.

Bashful – His name isn’t John. It’s Doc.

me – One at a time, remember?

Doc – Okay. You remember our names, right? I’m Doc and this is Happy, Grumpy, Sneezy, Sleepy, Bashful, and Dopey.

me – So who wants to be first? To explain your problem?

Happy – I’ll be first. I don’t know if it’s a terrible problem. I don’t think it is. Most folks would like to be like me all the time. To have my problem.

me – Which is … ?

Happy – To be happy! And that’s what I am. All the time.

me – Always?

Happy – Always! I’ve never had a bad day. To me, the sun is always shining and there are silver linings on all the fluffy clouds.

me – So the problem is …?

Happy – I make poor choices because I can only see the bright side. Before Jack bought those ‘magic beans’ I offered to buy them first. But Doc explained they were a scam and would not let me buy them.

me – Are you talking about Jack of “Jack and the Beanstalk?”

Happy – If Doc hadn’t interfered I would own the Golden Goose and all those golden eggs. But then again, my buddies might be envious and I would not be happy. So I guess all’s well that ends well.

me – I think I can help you with your problem. I once treated someone like you who was uni-polar. Never became depressed. It seems that you may be wearing rose-colored glasses. Do you own a pair?

Happy – Yes, how did you know? They are my reading glasses but I wear them almost all the time. I keep them in my tunic pocket.

me – Let me exchange them for these reading glasses with clear lenses. And promise to wear them just for reading!

Doc – That was neat how you figured that out. I would like to be next.

me – Fine. And your problem?

Doc – I’m a take-charge kind of guy. A team leader, you might say. A general always leading his height-challenged men. But now that I’m older it’s getting tiring. I think I should be less aggressive and let my fellow dwarfs do more of the leading.

me – Are you really willing to relinquish that power?

Doc – I think I should. My personal doctor, Doctor Oz, says my tendency to always be in the forefront may be affecting my health.

me – Doictor Oz from television?

Doc – No. Doctor Oz, the brother of the Wizard of ...

me – What health issues do you have?

Doc – I don’t seem to get enough sleep even though I'm in bed my usual eight hours.

Sleepy – Funny, I don’t have that problem at all.

Doc – Wait your turn, Sandman. And when I sleep, I am constantly awaking. My sleep is interrupted so I’m tired every morning.

me – Do you snore?

Grumpy – Doc snores so loud every night it makes Zeus, the God of Thunder, jealous.

Doc – It’s never bothered me.

me – That seems to explain your awaking so often. Does your pajama top have a pocket?

Doc – Yep. Why?

me – From now on, every night before you go to sleep put your pajama top on backward and put this tennis ball in it.

Doc – Then I will have to stop sleeping on my back!

me – That’s right! And your snoring should also diminish. Who’s next?

Grumpy – Might as well be me so I can get it over with.

me – And your problem?

Grumpy – Truth is, I don’t have any problem. It’s these other dwarfs who have a problem. They are always singing and dancing and joking and laughing. Gets on my nerves.

me – Just wonderin’ – is Grumpy your given name?

Grumpy – No, my mother named me Marmalade.

Other dwarfs (together) – Marmalade?

Grumpy – Yeah, you wanna make something of it. Put up your dukes and wipe those silly grins off your faces.

me – Actally, Marmalade means something very sweet. Your mother must have been very fond of you..

Grumpy – She was. I was an only dwarf. But the other dwarfs at Zwerg Schule (dwarf school) were always teasing me about my name. Called me Jelly Roll and Jelly Belly – you know how mean kids can sometimes be.

me – So how did you decide to handle that?

Grumpy – I knew only sticks and stones could hurt my bones but names cut me to the quick. So I decided to be stronger and meaner and more aggressive than anyone. I became a grumpy bully.

me – Are you happy being Grumpy nee Marmalade? I have a friend at court and we could easily change your name legally if you wish.

Grumpy – I always wanted to be called Daniel. You know, like Daniel in the Lion’s den. He was strong and smart and people loved him.

me – Then Daniel it shall be.

Sneezy – Can I be (ah choo) next?

me – Absolutely. I think I know your problem.

Sneezy(sniffling) It’s all too obvious, isn’t it. I hate sneezing and sniffling all day. Look at my nose. It’s always red.

me – I noticed that. Have you ever seen a doctor for help?

Sneezy – There aren’t any specialists in our woods, only a G.P. And his practice is predominantly gastroenterology.

me – Gastroenterology? The digestive system?

Sneezy – Yup. Those woods of ours are full of wolves and bears and those bozos will eat anything – even porcupines.

me – How do you eat a porcupine?

Sneezy (ah choo) – Very carefully! Gotcha!

me – You may sneeze a lot my friend, but you haven’t lost your sense of humor. That’s one of the most important faculties to have. You may be allergic to something. Do certain foods make you sneeze and sniffle more?

Sneezy – Not that I know. And I don’t have hay fever either.

me – I noticed you are wearing a sweater. Is it nylon?

Sneezy – No, it’s my favorite sweater – Snow White knitted it for me – from the wool of a sheep.

me – Ah, that may be the answer. Perhaps you are allergic to wool. Put your favorite sweater away and start wearing one of nylon or jersey.

Sneezy – Isn‘t jersey a state? (laughs)

me – Would someone please wake Sleepy.

Sleepy – I’ll have what everyone else is having.

me – I think you nodded off. We are still in my office. What issue would you like to discuss?

Sleepy – Zzzzzzzzzzz!

me – Sleepy! Wake up!

Sleepy – Time to go?

me – We haven’t talked yet.

Sleepy – Sorry. It’s difficult for me to stay awake. Right now I’m seeing spots before my eyes.

me – Have you seen a doctor?

Sleepy – No, just spots! Ha, ha, ha. Sorry. Couldn’t resist it. I once saw a doctor and he said I had narcolep … narkollips … something that makes you sleep a lot.

me – Narcolepsy? Excessive daytime sleepiness?

Sleepy – Zzzzzzzzzzz!

me – Sleepy, try to stay awake. What did the doctor prescribe?

Sleepy – Bed rest! Ha, ha, ha.

me – You are a really funny fellow. Do you take any medication for narcolepsy?

Sleepy – I eat an apple.

me – Does that keep narcolepsy away.

Sleepy – No, but it does keep the doctor away. Ha, ha, ha.

me – I’m going to give you the name and phone number of a physician who you will relate to.

Sleepy – Why?

me – He moonlights at night doing standup at the Comedy Club.

me – Where’s Bashful? Did he leave?

Bashful – I’m right here standing behind Doc.

me – Have you always been an introvert?

Bashful – I beg your pardon.

me – No, it’s not a bad thing. I mean shy and a little withdrawn.

Bashful – I don’t believe in throwing my weight around. My mother used to say if other dwarfs want to get to know you, they will make the effort.

me – Was your mother a strong personality.

Bashful – Strong is an understatement. She taught Teddy Roosevelt to charge uphill. She tutored Margaret Thatcher in 'Iron Lady' skills. I was lucky if I could ever get a word in sideways.

me – Do you want to make any changes to your personality?

Bashful – I don’t want to be the life of the party but I would like to be more at ease with others.

me – are you uncomfortable at social gatherings?

Bashful – If I don’t know anyone I just go stand at the bar. I don’t drink. I just stand there.

me – I understand. One of the first things you can do is learn to be a good listener. We all like to talk to someone who seems to be really listening to us. Who seems to be a friend.

Bashful – I can do that. My problem is thinking of something to say.

me – Ask questions. That should get others talking and you can jump in when you feel comfortable.

Bashful – what kind of questions?

me – About current events but be careful about politics. Or books you read or movies you have seen or want to see.

Dopey – It’s my turn. My turn now. I do not like the name, Dopey.

me – What name would you like?

Dopey – I have not yet made a definitive decision. But I no longer wish to be addressed with the appellation of Dopey. It’s odious and ignominious.

me – I do believe there may be a wolf in sheep’s clothing on the premises.

Dopey – Are you talking to me? Are you talkin’ to ME?

me – I have no desire to insult you but you appear to be the antithesis of your given name.

Dopey – That’s exactly the problem. I was not born with that name. Disney’s denizens needed a fall guy for comic relief. With my smaller than average frame and sometimes silly grin, I was designated IT!

me – What name were you given at birth?

Dopey – Diederich Olivier Penrod III.

me – Aha, that’s where the DOPe came from.

D.O.P. III – And I’m tired of playing the part of a cretin - a moronic fool. Did you know that I possess advanced degrees – a B.S, an M.S., and a Ph.D.?

me – No. In what discipline?

D.O.P. IIIBull Sh*!, More Sh*! and Piled High and Deep.

me (sighing) Another comedic dwarf! So why did you agree to play that part in the first place?

D.O.P. III – Moolah, Gelt. Big bucks. What else? But I have genuine talent. I plan on taking singing, dancing and acting lessons. No more second banana for me.

me – Sounds like a plan. Perhaps it's time for you to show others the real Dopey - I mean DOPe III.

Doc – We all appreciate your time and your helpful suggestions. Would you like to go to the movies with us? Our treat.

me – What movie are you going to see? “Seven Brides for Seven Brothers?”

D.O.P. III – Naw, that's a chick flick. We’re going to see “The Magnificent Seven.” Yul Brynner is one of my favorite actors – he wore his (?) hair like me.. (All seven dwarfs laugh)


Note: If you have difficulty, like me, remembering the names of all seven dwarfs, here is a mnemonic device to help you: two names begin with S (Sleepy, Sneezy), two begin with D (Doc, Dopey) and the other three are emotions (Bashful, Grumpy, Happy).

Happy is, of course, my role model. And I do make poor choices while I’m not even as happy as he is.... (sigh). But then I am so much like Doc, but thank heavens also re-tired.

Thanks a lot for a most enjoyable read. You are the best of the bests!

Hi Doc. I liked Dopey's interview the best too since you have been the first to get a word out of him. (kinda like Teller in the Penn & Teller team). Odious and ignominious?...Dopey's intelligence and word mastery is second only to your own! Cheers!

I showed your comment to all seven dwarfs, Martie, and they are clamoring for your address. They are so enthusiastic about the possibility of you spending time with them and as you promised, "bringing out the best in each and everyone."

Each one of the dwarfs is a charmer and I'm not surprised to learn that Happy is your role model and that you believe you may resemble Doc.

Thank you, my faraway friend, for those sincere comments. You are the bestest, too, you know.

Hi, Ruby. Thank you for enjoying this immensely. What a nice thing to say ... 'my imagination is soaring.' There's a lot of truth to that you know. While I am composing these Celebrity Interviews, I often have to tell myself (everyone talks to themselves, right?) wait a minute, you're going too far - beyond the bounds of what is reasonable.

But then again, beyond the boundaries is what I enjoy. I'll have to tweet Dr. Oz. I'll tell him you sent me.

Hi, Rosemary, thank you for loving these interviews and your sweet words. Delighted to give you a good laugh. And Bashful sends his regards. Wants to let you know he's not living at home any more. His mom took a new job - she's the live-in Warden of the Prison for Hardened Criminals. I think I feel sorry for those guys.

How clever of you, Alastar, and how sweet to convey Happy's sentiments about me. We did get along extremely well since we both seem to share that optimist/positivist gene.

Love your comment, Frog Prince, so naturally I will repeat it in its entirety so I can bask again in the glow:

"Magnificent and worth the 5 Stars I gave you for your creativity being on display once again." You do have a way with words, Frog, and I thank you for each one of them.


drbj profile image

drbj 4 years ago from south Florida Author

I am in the process of voting with all my heart and power that you get to be Happy, CM, and remain in that delightful state now and forever more. How's that?

I think that the Law of Attraction can work if we are not too unrealistic about what we really want and willing to work like the devil to get it. Grumpy is a changed dwarf. He realizes that mean doesn't pay off.

Thank you, m'dear, for the 'very funny as always.' You are very kind ... as always.

Good interview with the seven little darlings. I see you didn't get them to tell you their most embarrassing moments. My husband ran up on Grumpy and Dopey when he was a Sheriff's Deputy. They were locked out of the car and needed help getting it unlocked. He reached into the convertible, with the top down and unlocked the door. They could not reach over the side.

Thank you for the 'Oscar and Absolute genius' remarks. Feel free to cast as many votes as you wish. Love your 'Straight up and all across' comment. The trip back in time was my pleasure, m'luv. And thank you for the FB link. You ARE a sweetheart!

Hi, Kelly. So happy you laughed at the Oz remark - one of my brighter inspirations. Thank you for finding this very entertaining. Me, too. No false humility here.

It is 48 degrees here in south Florida - very cold for us.

Priceless. Inventive. Cute. Intelligent. Well crafted. Witty. I am running out of adjectives and adulations . You should be writing a column for the New Yorker, drbj. You genius, you. C'mere while I crush you in a gigantic hug for the sheer creative delight of reading your work ( dunno what's up with me! I' m in hug- dispensing- mode especially when I see sheer intelligence - forgive me)

HI drbj - glad I visited this hub. It sure makes me want to see that movie again. I used to wonder if the house of the 7 dwarfs reverted to a pig stye once Snow White scampered off with the prince. I imagine so. And have always been thankful this story was produced before the advent of everyone being on medication, or else they'd all be called Fairly Normal, and certainly not dwarfs. (I do so want to call them "dwarves")


drbj profile image

drbj 4 years ago from south Florida Author

Oooh! What a lovely gigantic hug, Mohan. Thank you.

Never ask for forgiveness, my Hubbuddy friend, when you are writing such priceless, inventive, cute, creative, intelligent, well crafted, witty, intelligent adulatory comments.

How I love to read both your hubs and your comments, m'dear. You do make my day. Here's to a lovely weekend for you and your family.

You know, Dolores, that was one question I forgot to ask the Three Little Pigs. I think I once heard though that the proceeds they received from Disney enabled them to a move to new digs . . . a luxurious condominium . . . on the beach . . . in Aruba.

In our very PC society today, they would probably be disturbed by being labeled as either dwarfs or dwarves. To be safe, I'll just call them charming little people as normal (?) as the rest of us. :) Heh, heh.

Yes, they would, Chris, and since my diagnoses were made on the basis of real-life clients ... they did! Heh, heh.

I am only sad because I missed this when you first posted it. Your sense of humor is only surpassed by your very talented imagination and creativity. Who doesn't love the dwarfs? Each with their unique personality though I have to admit I have a soft spot for Dopey. He's just so darn cute!

Voted up, funny, and awesome, oh, and shared!

What outstanding compliments, Mary, Thank you. So happy you finally found the Seven Dwarfs. You are absolutely on target when you realized that each one of them had very individual and unique personalities.

I agree, Dopey is darn cute, and Disney recognized that appeal when he gave him that charming persona. Thanks for the votes and the sharing, m'dear.
