Narrator: A dwarf of "many" words, and all of them... Dopey: (whistles) Narrator: Dopey is so cute, he makes puppies go "Awww...". His favorite food is whatever you're eating. Dopey has so many pets, a zoo keeper would be jealous. A skunk named... Dopey: (whistles) Narrator: A snake named... Dopey: (hisses then whistles) Narrator: And a bear named... Dopey: (growls) Narrator: Meet Dopey!
Dopey wears an over-sized light blue sweater with a flower pinned to it, purple pants, and magenta shoes. His hat is red with light blue, turquoise, and yellow polka dots and a red puff at its top. Dopey's hair is colored burgundy-brown. He also has a set of freckles on each side of his face. In both segments of the holiday-themed episode "Gingersnaps and Grumpy Snaps / Jollybells", he wears a green over-sized sweater instead of light blue, and a red and white scarf.
As usual in all previous Disney appearances, Dopey never talks. In The 7D, however, he whistles as a means of communication and he can understand his fellow dwarfs. He's also good at pantomiming. Dopey has a strong love of animals. In "Sneezin' Season" he is seen playing with Bob the squirrel and in "The 8th D" he helped a baby elephant by removing a rolled little hedgehog/porcupine that was on its foot and took him home, but later set him free after realizing that such animals belong in the wild.
Dopey is the third of the 7D (after Sneezy and Grumpy) to have his childhood memories shown, in "Whose Voice is it Anyway?". Gizelle is the one who had raised Dopey from his infancy. This also suggests how Dopey has the ability to speak in many animal languages.
Dopey became a Dragon Scout First Class at the age of three. ("The Enchanted Forest Ranger"; he hold up his fingers to indicate the age)
Also in "The Enchanted Forest Ranger" Dopey can turn feral. He calls on many animals to rescue the 7D from Dirk Dumphrey.
