The Vultures are two male non-anthropomorphic vultures.


These two greedy, malicious vultures lived in the Black Forest and, foreseeing her murderous intentions, followed Grimhilde from afar when she was attempting to kill Snow White. They were seen attempting to eat Grimhilde in 1937 after she fell off a cliff, mistakenly believing her to be finally dead at last.

By 1952, the Vultures were employed at the Haunted Mansion (then renamed Diller's Midnight Manor) as the spooky establishment's official "pet birds"; the owner herself once quipped that "they kept an eye on the Security Patrol" even as the Security Patrol kept an eye on the grounds.

Behind the scenesEdit

The Vultures appeared in 1937 in Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs, where they were animated by Ward Kimball. They made a brief cameo in Episode 4 of Kimball's TV series The Mouse Factory, Spooks and Magic.

Being rather memorable relative to their minor role, the Vultures served as the templates of many other incidental Vulture characters in later Disney animated projects; they include the flock of vultures seen in the Pecos Bill segment of Melody Time, a vulture sitting on a gallows in the Night on Bald Mountain segment of Fantasia, and Voltaire the Vulture, a cut character from Who Framed Roger Rabbit.
