    Did you know today’s Tiggerific Tuesday #DisneyTrivia about Disney’s classic 1940 animation FANTASIA?

    The FANTASIA story team originally suggested Dopey, the dwarf from SNOW WHITE, play the Sorcerer’s Apprentice. Walt Disney, however, insisted they place Mickey Mouse in the role, whose popularity was waning at the time.

      That is some of my favorite trivia about Fantasia! I love Dopey, but I just don’t think it would have been the same without Mickey!

        I think it would have been more comical with Dopey. I can imagine things just wouldn’t go his way–almost like having Donald Duck in that role.

      Interesting, Jodi! I can’t see Dopey as the Sorcerers Apprentice!

        I know, right? That would be weird!
