Merida Mikey on Remembering Names

I’ve always been one of those people that hardly ever forgot a face, but often have one hell of a time remembering names! I’ve never been able to figure out why, but that’s just how it is. So, if I’ve ever forgotten your name, please forgive me!

Actually, some characters we meet are easier to remember than others. For example, these two characters are easily recognizable and named by the majority of the people on this planet!

(If you get their names wrong, sign out of this blog NOW!)

Of course, that’s Mickey Mouse and his main squeeze, Minnie. They’ve been living together in sin since around 1928. Personally, I don’t see Mick’s attraction, but have concluded he must have a foot fetish (and her, too)! I don’t think that’s how Walt Disney wanted us to view this common law couple, but that’s how I see it! And thank God Mick’s not allergic to polka dots! If I were the wardrobe police, I’d arrest the little rodent!

And how about that Snow White!?! Now there’s something to ponder. Living alone in the woods with 7 dwarfs (dirty old men all of them, for sure)! What the hell is so “Snow White” about that? I think Walt Disney wanted to entertain not only the darling little children with this fantasy, but us adults, too! (Thank you, Mr. Disney.)

While Snow White is almost as recognizable as the common law rodent couple, the 7 dirty old men she lives with in the woods are a bit more difficult. Can you name them????? I can (because I looked some of them up on the net)!

Here’s a bit of a teaser for you. Here’s a picture of Snow White and the 7 dwarfs:

(I wouldn’t vote for any of them, nor would I buy a used car from any of them!)

And here are their individual pictures. Now, get a piece of paper and a pencil, number from 1 to 7, and see how many you can name! (HINT: None of them are named “Sleazy”, so don’t even go there!)

If you get them all correct you win a free trip to Dizzy World to hang out with the Rodent and his Squeeze and dine on Velveeta cheese sandwiches. If you don’t get them all correct, you have to sign a blank check, send it to me and I’ll fill it in!

(WARNING: If you look them up on the net prior to taking this test, your computer will crash, your sex organs will shrivel up, the fleas of a thousand camels will infest your armpits, you will have 7 years of bad luck, and be forced to hang out with The Rodent and his squeeze and shine their shoes, iron her polka dot outfits, and eat Velveeta cheese sandwiches!!)

Get ready, get set, go:









Scroll down for the answers!

And the answers are:

#1 - Dopey: the youngest, sweetest, and silliest of the seven, and the only one to be completely bald and beardless; wears a too large lime green tunic and purple cap.*

#2 - Grumpy: the grouchiest and most curmudgeonly of the group, though even he is supremely devoted to the beautiful Snow White; wears a red tunic, long white hair and beard.

#3 - Doc: the only one of the dwarfs to wear glasses (so presumably the most intellectual); wears an orange-brown tunic, long white hair and beard.

#4 - Happy: the most rotund of the dwarfs; wears a brownish two-tone tunic, yellow cap, long white hair and beard.

#5 - Bashful: evokes his bashful nature through a classic pose of shyness (hands clasped behind back, shoulders slightly raised, eyes upturned); sometimes difficult to distinguish between Sneezy and Sleepy; depicted in purple tunic and magenta cap (on video), as well as long white hair and beard.

#6 - Sneezy: frequently shown with one finger underneath his nose, as if trying to stifle a sneeze; sometimes difficult to distinguish between Sleepy and Bashful; wears a yellow-brown tunic, long white hair and beard.

#7 - Sleepy: perhaps the most difficult to differentiate between Sleepy and Bashful, though he wears a perpetually sleepy looking, heavily lidded expression on his face; wears a brownish tunic, green cap, long white hair and beard.

NOTE: Keeping track of all seven dwarfs is actually quite simple once you have mastered this simple mnemonic device: two S’s, two D’s, and three emotions. Two S’s: Sleepy and Sneezy; two D’s: Dopey and Doc; and three emotions: Happy, Bashful, and Grumpy.

How’d ‘ya do? Do I have a check in the mail???????


  1. I'll have you know I got them all correct, and in the proper order as displayed; including your little sombrero wearing ringers (Speedy, Daffy, and Bugs)
    Debi, um Dizzy World here I come!

  2. Wow Mike. What a collection. Great post. I only got a couple right, I guess I write you a check.

  3. This was too funny. My score wasn't too bad either, with 5 out of 7. I missed Dopey and Doc. Great post!
