I am reading a about about the secrets of Disney Animation. For each movie they list the bloopers if they have any. They have thirty movies so I will do six per day over the course of five days. The following qoutes is from David Koenig.
Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs
"a. Perhaps it's the early animation, but ever-smiling Snow White and Prince Charming just can't keep their mouths shut, literally. In the opening scene, Snow White hums with her mouth open. And to end the scene, a bird kisses Prince Charming on the teeth.
b. At work in the mises, with diamonds sparkling everwhere, the Dwarfs seem to be picking at barren rock.
c. During the Dwarfs' first trek home from the diamond mine, Dopey suddenly has a lantern which he didn't have when he started the trip."
"a. Geppetto paints Pinocchio's eyebrows black, then dips his brush in water to clean it. He next dips his brush in red paint and paints the puppet's mouth black.
b. Jiminy Cricket cozies up to sleep on the end of a fiddle and kicks his shoes off in front of him. He is roused by the arrival of the fairy and goes to get his shoes, which are some distance away, and sitting neatly heel to heel.
c. In shots of Geppetto in bed, there is a window right above it. Uet in long shots the window is well to the right of his bed."
No bloopers listed.
"a. When Mrs. Jumbo goes into a rage, her shawl momentarily vanishes after a rope is thrown around her neck.
b. The ringmaster has a pretty ambitious imagination. 'One elephant climbs on top of another elephant until finally all seventeen elephants have constructed an enormous pyramid of pachyderms,' he says, even theough he doesn't own half that many elephants. He does proceed with the act using seven elephants (although at the start of the act he's circled by eight).
c. When Dumbo and Timothy awaken to find themseves up a tree, Timothy takes a look down and sees the trunk is relatively free of branches and there is no pond or fence below. Yet when he and Dumbo fall, they break through two branches and somehow land in a pond near a fence. When we look back up at the tree, we see the broken branches-on opposite sides of the tree.
d. The five crows seem to have a puzzling effect over Dumbo's orange collar with the big yellow stripe. In three shots, the collar's yellow stripe disappears, while in two other shots, the entire collar is missing.
e. Alert Oliver Stone: there may be a sixth crow on the grassy knoll. After singing 'When I See and Elephant Fly,' the five crows fall to the ground laughing their heads off. When we see them laughing on their backs, one of hte crows looks like suspiciously like the leader, but his jacket is brown instead of blue, his shirt has no red stripes, his spats are brown instead of light purple and the sprig in his hat is light purple instead of blue. And in the next shot his cigar disappears. Then he and the other crows are quieted by the real lead row, leaning against a fencepost back with his cigar and traditional outfit."
"a. While investigating the wonders of nature, Bambi happens upon a mother possum to the right of her three babies, all hanging upside down by their tails from a tree branch. Bambi turns his head, and we then see the possums as he does-rightside up. Except they the mother remains on the right, so that her babies are now to her left.
b. Faline's eyes are blue, except during the forest fire sequence when she is pursued by the hunting dogs and saved by Bambi, when her eyes are brown.
c. After the fire. a raccoon is on the riverbank licking its young. The child suddenly vanishes, and the parent continues licking air."
Song of the South
