When the Seven Dwarfs march through Disneyland, you know that you've hit the jackpot. Sure, you might get Tigger, or Goofy, or Buzz Lightyear - but with the Dwarfs you get seven characters for the price of one! I always thought that Dopey was everyone's favorite (though Grumpy gives him a run for his money these days), but I mostly have lots of photos of Sleepy, Bashful, and maybe Sneezy.
If this isn't Bashful, I'll eat my shoes! (I wear edible shoes just in case I am called out). He's so shy, he can't even open his eyes. Oh wait, maybe that means he's Sleepy! Arg. Why can't they wear name tags? I need to look at the current costumes of the Dwarfs (assuming that they exist), and see how much more accurate they look. Meanwhile, imagine being the cast member inside this costume, without the use of his (or her) arms, while excited kids pull you this way and that. No, thanks!
It's not often that you see a herd of Germanic fairytale Dwarfs. They usually travel at night, and are as quiet as mice. This rare daylight photo shows them in the middle of a rumble.
OK, this guy looks sleepy, doesn't he? I dub him "Sleepy". Technically he is narcoleptic.
