Two-Color Disney Decals

A series of two-color (blue and red) decals were produced featuring Disney characters. Don't know much about these except what we see here. They measure approximately 1.5" x 2.25" and were issued on sheets of backing paper. Each includes the character's name and the "© Walt Disney Productions" imprint. Snow White and the dwarfs were part of the collection, along with Mickey Mouse and probably others. It's possible these were premiums for a product promotion, such as breakfast cereal or bread. Not sure of the date, maybe 1970s.

Snow White In School VHS Program

This Walt Disney Home Video VHS tape features a Snow White "In School Program" that was used as a teaching tool in younger classrooms. It is titled, "Working Together Works Wonders." Narrated by longtime Disney voice actor Mark Elliot.





The tape is not dated but does feature the Sorcerer Mickey Home Video logo at the beginning. This was used from the mid 1980s until 2001.



Mark Elliot informs us of five lessons we can learn from the Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs story. They emphasize believing in yourself and cooperating with others.





The video uses clips from the motion picture to teach these five lessons. After each one, students are encouraged to think of how these have come into play in their own lives. A classroom discussion is encouraged.





Special thanks to Sonny Mikszath from Sweden for letting us know about this tape and for sharing info and images from his collection.
