It doesn’t fit – Ward Kimball

At the request of Walt Disney, animator Ward Kimball (1914-2002) worked two hundred and forty days on four minutes long scene from a cartoon "Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs". It was a scene where the dwarfs are cooking a lunch for Snow White and demolishing the kitchen in their colorful forest hut in the process.
At first, Disney said that the scene was divine, but then he thought it over and concluded:

It doesn’t fit with the rest of the movie. Cut it out!”.

Ward Kimball’s two hundred and forty days of work and effort were slashed along.
