Mupi Super 8 Film Cassette from Italy

In the 1970s and 80s, short scene excerpts from Disney movies were issued on Super 8 film cassettes by Italian manufacturer, Mupi. The series was made available for the European market and intended for use with special Mupi hand-cranked viewers and projectors. The dwarfs washing sequence from Snow White was one of the featured clips.

In the 1970s and 80s, 8mm and super 8 films on reels were quite popular. The same washing scene excerpt from Snow White was marketed in the US and Europe as The Dwarfs' Dilemma. We'll have a look at in a post later this month.
