Quotes "Bibbidi bobbidi boo!"

"You can't go to the ball dressed in that!"

"On the stroke of twelve, the spell will be broken, and everything will be as it was before."

"Well, hop in, my dear. We can't waste time!"

"Let me slip into something more comfortable."

"That's better."

"Now off you go, for you shall go to the ball."

"Ella! I almost forgot. Remember, the magic will last so long. With last echo of the last bell, at the last stroke of midnight, the spell will be broken and all will return to what it was before."

Nonsense, child. If you'd lost all your faith, I couldn't be here. And here I am.

―The Fairy Godmother

The Fairy Godmother is a supporting character in Disney's 1950 film Cinderella. She is the magical fairy godmother of the film's titular character.

She was originally voiced by the late Verna Felton.

Background Edit

The Fairy Godmother should have a kindly voice with a certain age in it. I don't see her as being goofy or stupid, but rather as having a wonderful sense of humor.

―Walt Disney

The Fairy Godmother's design underwent numerous changes in development, with the original source becoming difficult to narrow down. Eventually, layout artist Ken O'Connor looked to his wife, Mary Alice O'Connor, for inspiration. The Fairy Godmother's design was what Ken tried to imagine how she'd look a few decades older. Dedicated to community work and charities, Mary Alice's personality served to fit the character as well.

Personality Edit

The Fairy Godmother is a motherly, kind, and genuine character with an optimistically pure heart. She serves as a physical symbol of hope in Cinderella's life, and speaks with a gentle tone. Though wise to a degree, the Fairy Godmother tends to be comedically absent-minded, and continuously loses sight of the obvious, and has a habit of both losing her wand and forgetting her magic words of "Bibbidi-Bobbidi-Boo". Even so, she can piece together her mind quickly enough and enjoys her ability to ensure dreams come true, and treats Cinderella as her own daughter, in a sense.
