One of the first few Silly Symphonies – The Merry Dwarfs was directed by Walt Disney with much of the animation by Ub Iwerks (and probably Les Clark) and a score by Carl Stalling. Like Cannibal Capers, this cartoon is fairly bizarre, most probably because the main characters are not-quite-human. The titular dwarfs are nothing like the seven that would befriend Snow White in Disney’s feature debut. Instead, these folk are insect-sized people – more of a cross between a fairy tale elf and a leprechaun. They work a little, drink a little, dance a little, then drink some more. The real experimental genius of this short occurs in the last few seconds, when the entire frame goes wobbly to signify the drunkenness of the dwarfs.
