Why Happy for Utah? Because besides Hawaii, it’s the happiest state in America. Where else would the happiest dwarf want to live? With that and the amount of rocks throughout the state, he would be delighted.
While there might not be as many mines as he’d like to do his job, Utah is known to be the best place for paleontology, and he could help break open rocks and excavate fossils. Not as nice as diamonds and gems, but I think Happy could deal with it.
Happy is sure to get along with the people of Utah as well. He’s been shown to be the most sociable of the dwarves as he is the first to introduce himself to Snow White when they first meet her. He also loves himself a good song and has no problem joining in. Bring him to karaoke and he’s sure to be a blast.
Happy also loves some good food, so despite it being the state snack of Utah, try to feed him more than Jell-o. He’s definitely going to want a pastrami burger (and so am I!), a Utah scone, an ice cream shake, and some mint sandwiches.
But the joyful dwarf is more than just what his name denotes. He’s also pretty smart. When the dwarves thought some bad guy had broken into their house, he was the first one to come up with a plan and when they had to fight the Evil Queen, he was the first in the charge to throw her over the cliff (happy doesn’t necessarily mean non-violent apparently). If you need to get out of a scrape, he’s certainly one you want to call.
