☆ grumpy イライラした
Have you ever read Snow white and the Seven Dwarfs or seen the movie? If you have you’ll know that “Grumpy” is one of the dwarfs. But did you know that the dwarfs never had names in the original book! And the names have changed throughout the years in all the different versions of the book and movie! I did not know that!
Naturally, the most famous dwarfs are the ones in the Disney movie (1937). In that movie dwarfs are Doc, Dopey, Bashful, Grumpy, Sneezy, Sleepy, and Happy. In the story, Grumpy is annoyed at having Snow White in the dwarf’s home. He is grumpy because she is living with them and he doesn’t want her to.
Did you know that Sneezy is called that because of his powerful sneezes? I knew that, but I always thought that he had a cold… it turns out he has very bad hay fever!!
I wonder why the dwarfs had no names in the original story by the Brothers Grimm, published in 1812… and why the people at Disney decided names like Grumpy! I wouldn’t like it if anyone nicknamed me grumpy!
