Synopsis
Queen Grimhilde orders her huntsman to take Snow White to the forest and kill her, so that the Queen would be "the fairest one of all." The huntsman can't do the deed and tells Snow White to flee through the forest. She finds the home of the Seven Dwarfs. The Queen disguises herself as an ugly witch and gives Snow White an apple laced with the "sleeping death." The Dwarfs find Snow White apparently lifeless and chase the Queen/Witch to her death. They make a coffin and place Snow White in a forest glade. The Prince comes across the scene and kisses Snow White, breaking the spell.

Synopsis
The Seven Dwarfs are lonesome after Snow White goes to live in the Prince's castle. She sends them a magic wishing lamp and they wish for someone to take Snow White's place so they won't be lonely. On cue, Dumbo is blown by a strong wind through the window. Dumbo and Dopey go flying and find the Queen's Huntsman stranded on the side of a cliff, where he was pushed by the Wicked Prince, who is ruling now that his sister is dead. Dumbo rescues the Huntsman, but the Wicked Prince captures Dopey and puts him in a high tower. Dumbo and Doc rescue Dopey from the tower.

Indexer Notes

The Dwarfs and Dumbo do not know each other when they first meet. Dumbo can talk in this story. Story continues on inside back cover in black, red, and white and concludes on back cover in color.
