Sleepy is a male dwarf.
Sleepy is one of the Seven Dwarfs living together in their cottage in an enchanted kingdom in the Black Forest, and spends his days mining for jewels with the others. As his name implies, Sleepy is always sleepy, never wasting an opportunity to lie down and yawning more often than he talks. Sleepy is often tailed by a Fly as lazy as himself, whom he has begrudgingly grown to like. Along with his siblings, Sleepy took Snow White in after she fled from her stepmother's murderous intentions, and ended up befriending her.
Behind the scenesEdit
Sleepy first appeared in 1937 in Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs.
Among the many unused Dwarves, one can find the name "Lazy" in development notes circa 1934. It is likely "Lazy" was to be a variation on the same character, more than a character in his own right.
