Disney Fact #61

Although the Looney Tunes and Disney cartoons were competing properties, Mel Blanc (the man behind Bugs Bunny, among others) appeared in two Disney films. Blanc filled in for Eddie Collins as the voice of Dopey in Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs after Collins’ untimely death and originally voiced Gideon’s lines in Pinocchio. However, those were later cut from the movie entirely when the producers decided he would be mute — although you can still hear Blanc’s hiccups in the resulting film.

Gideon is so bashful :)
