In the 1977 adaptation of The Hobbit, Thorin Oakenshield appears faithful to his appearance from the book, wearing a sky blue and in this film is voiced by Hans Conried, famous for voicing Captain Hook from Peter Pan.

His cartoon character remains the same as his book counterpart, however, there is a major difference. Thorin is not after the Arkenstone, as it doesn't exist in the 1977 film. Instead of feeling betrayed by Bilbo for handing over the stone, he was instead losing his respect for Bilbo, believing the Hobbit didn't know war.
