This is a cleanup of Rankin/Bass character control art from the 1977 animation of the Hobbit. I'm only making a higher resolution version of preexisting art, all other credit goes to Rankin/Bass.
Colored this time!

From Left to Right:
Bilbo
Gandalf
Thorin
Fili
Kili
Oin
Gloin
Nori
Ori
Dori
Bofur
Bifur
Bombur
Balin
Dwalin

I drew this because The Hobbit's dwarves remind me so much of the dwarves in my favorite movie of all time, Snow White and the Seven Dwarves. HI HOOOOOOOOOOOO! You can tell how much I love them by how I colored them, too. Sometimes my nickname is Sneezy.

These are cool! I read the book, but I never did see the animated feature :( They're so different from the Peter Jackson versions. My brother's girlfriend bought me the artbook of the Peter Jackson Hobbit movie (Thror's design is so cool!). But yeah, they do remind of Snow White and the Seven Dwarves lol. There's just way more of them... and I'm not sure who would be Snow White xD.

Mine too! I can't help but hold the Peter Jackson films accountable to do better than this cartoon.

Aside from having such a trim beard, I liked Throin from the recent movie.

Let's say short beards are more modern I guess :XD:

Diggity, Bombur in hobbit was a bit far for me haha!

Bombur was a bit much? I didn't look hard enough, cause Nori's tri-corner haircut just ruined my life.
