December 16, 1929 – The Silly Symphony The Merry Dwarfs Premieres in Theaters


On December 16, 1929, the Silly Symphony The Merry Dwarfs was released to theaters. It was directed by Walt Disney.

The short begins with the dwarfs dancing in their village to the opening of the “Anvil Chorus” from Il Trovatore. The dwarfs are then seen hard at work at their chores, including working at a shoemaker shop and a blacksmiths. Afterwards, they prepare for a party, where plenty of beer is served and consumed before they continue to dance and be merry. Two of the dwarves fall into a barrel of beer while dancing and end up dancing while heavily intoxicated.
