Snowball is Claude Frollo's horse in the 1996 Disney film the Hunchback of Notre Dame and the quaternary antagonist. He is mostly seen to mirror Achilles, Phoebus' horse.

Background

Very little is known about Snowball, except that he appears to be a breed of draft horse, built as muscular, and hulking. He is loyal to his master, however, and can not be considered truly evil as he does not have a human-based personality like other animals in Disney films are sometimes seen to have.

In the audio commentary of the DVD, film directors, Kirk Wise and Gary Trousdale and film producer, Don Hahn reveal the real name of Frollo's horse: Snowball.

Role in the film

He appears only a handful of times in the film. In one scene, he gives a harsh glare to Phoebus' horse, Achilles. His final fate is unknown, but one of the few things that happen to him is when Esmeralda throws a stone at his butt thrusting Frollo off.

Trivia

  • His name is slightly ironic, as he is a black sable horse, whereas snowballs are usually white.
  • He is a Friesian horse.
