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.

  1. Someone whom I knew used to be an educator, and they let me view the "Pinocchio" version of this type of video with them, but, ultimately, being a non-Disney type of person, they decided against using it, even though I said that I liked it.

    I'd love to be able to watch the "Snow White" video, too, someday. :)
