Freeze Frame! - Peet's Ice

Susie the Little Blue Coupe was largely the creation of Disney Legend and veteran story man Bill Peet. Peet worked extensively on the studios animated features and was responsible for conceptualizing and writing both 101 Dalmatians and The Sword in the Stone. He would retire from Disney into a very successful second career as an author and artist of children's books.

A homage to Peet in the Susie short takes the form of an ice struck that the little car follows through traffic.
