Snow White

When the magic mirror declares that Betty Boop is the fairest in the land, her stepmother, the Queen, tells her guards Bimbo and Koko to execute her. When the guards knocks themselves out in their attempts to ignore the order, Betty Boop is freed by the tree she is tied to, Inadvertently falling into an ice coffin which is then carried into a mysterious cave by seven dwarfs with Bimbo, Koko and the Queen - disguised as a witch - in hot pursuit.
