Disney songs! :)

Hello Linguaphiles!

I'm sure that I'm not the only one out there who gets her dose of foreign languages from Disney songs on YouTube. But what about the DVDs? Most versions that I've seen have two language options, three at most. Are there ANY DVDs out there (especially Disney, but others as well) that have a generous selection of dubbed versions? I know, the dubs are usually horrible anyway, but they're fun. And - how cool would it be to have a DVD with options for English, French (Europe), French (Canada), Arabic, Mandarin, Japanese, Greek, Hebrew, Spanish, Turkish, Icelandic, Finnish, Czech... and, what the hell, Esperanto!  I'd buy it. Would you buy it?

Does ANYONE know of DVDs that have five or more language AUDIO options?

Snow White & The Seven Dwarves

My friend called me a "Trötter" and when I asked what that was he explained that it's what one of the seven dwarves in Snow White is called, evidently the Swedish version of "Sleepy" in English.

So now of course I want to know what all the seven dwarves are called in as many languages as possible! Here are their names in English for reference:
