The 7D is an American animated television series produced by Disney Television Animation for Disney XD. The series is described as a "comedic and contemporary take on the Seven Dwarfs" -- Doc, Grumpy, Happy, Bashful, Sneezy, Dopey, and Sleepy -- from the 1937 animated film Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs by Walt Disney Productions. It was also the prequel of the said movie before the introduction of Snow White. Originally envisioned as a Disney Junior series aimed at preschoolers, The 7D has been retooled as a series for all ages and it premiered July 7, 2014 with the episode "The Littlest Giants" in the United States on Disney XD.[2][3][4] On December 2, 2014, Disney XD renewed The 7D for a second season. Before the official announcement, Billy West, the voice of Bashful, said that the series had received a second season order.[5] The first second season episode, "When Pigs Fly", premiered on Disney XD on January 23, 2016 and on Disney Channel on January 29, 2016. On April 25, 2016, Mr. Warburton, the co-executive producer of the series, announced that The 7D has been cancelled and will not continue beyond its second season. The series finale had set to premiere on September 2016;[6] instead it was pushed a month later to October,[7] but the finale was then pushed to November. The series finale premiered on November 5, 2016.[8]

The first nine episodes of the series aired on Disney Channel from September 15 to 21, 2014, though it is not in the order that had first premiered on Disney XD. The series returned to Disney Channel on December 26, 2014, where it airs regularly as a part of the Disney Junior on Disney Channel block on weekends until February 14, 2015, as well as Disney Junior the channel in 2015, where it will make its debut. The 7D premiered on Disney Junior on February 9, 2015 to April 3, 2015. The series returned to Disney Channel weekdays starting on January 25, 2016 with episodes from the first season new to the network as well as the second season premiere episode only for a week.

Premise

7d theme - 7d in front of their cottage
Set in the kingdom of Jollywood, the 7D works at their underground jewel mine. Whenever a problem arise, the dwarfs are being summoned for help through the use of the magical Bing-Bong Bell by Queen Delightful, the ruler of Jollywood. Standing in their way are Hildy and Grim Gloom, an evil magical couple who wants to overthrow Delightful's throne and take over Jollywood.[9]

The 7D's original design by Noah Z. Jones.

In June 2012, Disney Junior announced that an adaptation of the Seven Dwarfs from the 1937 film is being made into a series, with an image of the dwarfs' new look designed by Fish Hooks creator Noah Z. Jones.[10] However, in late 2013, a new image revealed that the 7D was redesigned during production.[11] The series was set to be animated using Adobe Flash; the series pilot, "The Littlest Giants", was made using that program, though it's aired as the sixth episode of the series. However, it was decided later to use traditional animation for the rest of the series.[12] The storyboards and pre-production work is done at Disney Television Animation, while animation production is handled by Toon City in the Philippines and South Korea-based Digital eMation.[13] Starting with the second season, Wang Film Productions in Taiwan took Digital eMation's place.

Music

For a list of songs, see the Songs category.

Parry Gripp serves as the composer of songs for The 7D.[14] as well as composing the series' score along with Keith Horn. The "7D Theme" is the series' theme song. Almost every segment features a song; some have more than one. A handful of The 7D writers have also written lyrics to several songs.
