Snowball is the name of Claude Frollo's horse in the Disney 1996 film The Hunchback of Notre Dame and a minor villain. He is mostly seen to mirror Achilles, the horse who is owned by the film's secondary hero, Phoebus.
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, Claude Frollo, however, can not be considered evil as he does not have a human-based personality like other animals in Disney films are sometimes seen to have.
The Hunchback of Notre Dame
In the audio commentary of the DVD, film directors, Kirk Wise and Gary Trousdale and film producer, Don Hahn reveal the real name of Judge Claude Frollo's horse. The horse's name is Snowball. Snowball appears only a handful of times in the film. His final fate is unknown.
- His name is slightly ironic, as he is a sable horse, whereas snowballs are usually white.
