But where are the other dwarfs? Off enjoying the party’s complimentary cookies and cocoa? You tell us. Go ahead and “Caption This!”


  • Doc was called in to attend the festivities when members of the parade were feeling “a little hoarse”.

  • “House calls. Fooey! Why can’t my name be an adjective instead of a job description?!?”

  • Doc makes a break for it with all the diamonds.

  • They see me Rollin’. They Hatin’.

  • He was looking for me. However I was a very small 5 yr old so it was tuff

  • Doc Drawn Carriage.

  • While the other Dwarves helped the Elves make toys, Santa asked Doc to spread some cheer at the parade.

  • “I’m taking these horses down Mean Straight…er, Steam Freight…uh, Stained Feet, er…”

  • Early concepts of the Seven Dwarfs Mine Train reveal plans to have real horses!

  • “Out the front gate, through the parking lot, then three miles to the highway. Then I’m free to have my own adventures!”

  • “I don’t think this route down Main Street, U.S.A. is going to work for the Seven Dwarfs Mine Train. We may need to create a New Fantasyland.”

  • Snow White needed some supplies. Doc volunteered to shop. The others went back to the mine.

  • Doc knew the ladies couldn’t resist an open carriage ride 😉

  • Doc volunteered to be the designated driver for the annual Christmas party.

  • Everyone needs help sometimes, even Santa Claus!
