Heigh-ho For "The 7D!"
Disney Orders Second Season Of Hit Animated Seven Dwarfs Series "The 7D"
Disney has ordered a second season of "The 7D," the hit animated TV series which takes a comedic look at the world of the Seven Dwarfs. Fourteen-time Emmy Award-winner Tom Ruegger ("Animaniacs," "Tiny Toon Adventures") is executive producer.
More than 75 years after its premiere, Disney is still getting mileage out of “Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs.”
Disney Xd has renewed its animated series “The 7D,” which takes a comedic look at the Mouse’s magnificent seven as they serve Queen Delightful and her kingdom and fend off attacks from bumbling villains Grim and Hildy Gloom.
Tom Ruegger (“Animaniacs,” “Tiny Toon Adventures”) exec produces. Alfred Gimeno and Charles Visser (also from “Tiny Toon Adventures”) direct the Disney Television Animation production, with Internet sensation Parry Gripp composing.
Since debuting on Disney Xd in July, “The 7D” has been a steady performer among kids in the 2-11 set. A holiday episode of the series bows tonight at 8 p.m.

Bill Farmer, possibly best known to most of us as the voice of Disney’s Goofy for the past twenty-seven years, is an amazing talent, a hilarious person and an all-around nice guy. Bill, who was named a Disney Legend in 2009, and in 2011 was the first voice actor to receive the prestigious Friz Freleng Lifetime Achievement Award for Excellence in Animation, began his career as a radio DJ and stand-up comedian before landing the role of Goofy in 1987. He has gone on to voice a myriad of other well-known characters as well, including Disney characters such as Pluto, Horace Horsecollar, and Doc.
Bill’s also voiced Looney Tunes characters such as Yosemite Sam, Sylvester, and Foghorn Leghorn, and other fun and memorable roles such as Secret Squirrel in Harvey Birdman, Attorney at Law, Stinkie in Casper: A Spirited Beginning and Casper Meets Wendy, Willie Bear in Horton Hears a Who! »

Tom Ruegger is the creator of classic 1990s animated series such as Animaniacs, Tiny Toon Adventures, and Pinky and the Brain. For those of you who are fans of these shows, you'll be happy to learn that he has developed a new series for Disney Junior called The 7D that he hopes will capture the same fun spirit of the awesome shows he previously worked on.
As the title suggests, The 7D is about the adventures of the Seven Dwarfs, "30 years or so before their fateful run-in with Snow White. Living in the Enchanted Forest in the kingdom of Jollywood under the rule of Queen Delightful, the dwarfs are the area’s 'most trusted' heroes, righting the wrongs that arise and often thwarting the plans of evil-doers when the queen calls for help."
In a recent interview with the La Times Ruegger said:
“I was very intrigued about taking these »

Disney has been adept at mining its animated properties with preschool-oriented spinoffs (see “Jake and the Never Land Pirates” and to an extent “Sofia the First”), and in terms of mining, well, the Seven Dwarfs would seem to be a natural. Yet Disney Xd’s latest excursion into the vaults, “The 7D,” is an ill-considered mess — a series that seeks to approximate the madcap antics of Cartoon Network, with none of the charm associated with the source material. Parents might be comfortable with the brand, but if they try watching with their moppets they’ll be itching to heigh-ho out of there.
Oddly constructed, the series puts the 7D (the term “Dwarfs” is never used) at the beck and call of irritating Queen Delightful (voiced by Leigh-Allyn Baker), who summons them, Batman-like, to assist her with even the most minor problems that might assail the village of Jollywood.

She may be the fairest of them all but you won't find Snow White in the new Disney Xd cartoon series The 7D. This sassy, madcap take on the beloved Seven Dwarfs (premiering Monday, July 7 at 10 a.m./9c) is set in the merry but trouble-plagued kingdom of Jollywood where Queen Delightful constantly needs Snow's former cronies to save her — especially from Hildy Gloom, the fashionista witch voiced by Kelly Osbourne, who is determined to take over the royal palace and redo it in pink plaid. TV Guide Magazine spoke with Osbourne and discovered she was more than happy to show us her Disney side!
