Above and below are character sketches Bill Peet made for the film.

"...but a lot of times you'd work on things that weren't good to draw. Like Sleeping Beauty; it was a bxxxxrd. You draw this beautiful girl dancing in the forest with the prince--there was nothing to get a hold of". Bill said Sleeping Beauty was really an 'austere' and inferior version of Snow White; he cited the lack of any small , sympathetic creatures like those in Dumbo and Cinderella."
