Susie Board 1

- Last week, I posted the galleys for Bill Peet ‘s book art for Susie, the Little Blue Coupe. I can’t say for sure that it ever became a book, but I do know it was a film completed in 1951.
..The film was directed by Clyde Geronomi.
..The Layout was by Don Griffith and
…______________________Hugh Hennesy.
..The animation was by Bob Carlson, Ollie
._.Johnston
, Hal King and Cliff Nordberg.
..The backgrounds were by Ralph Hulett.
..The music was composed by Paul Smith.

Thanks again to John Canemaker, I have the storyboard by Peet for this short Disney film. Part 1 appears here.

As in the past I’ve broken the board down so that I could post it as large as possible so that you can read it when the images are enlarged. Enjoy.

    There’s an interesting in-joke in this short. When Susie is stuck in traffic, she is next to an ice truck with “Peet Ice” painted on the side.
    I think it would be in board A4a – it’s not in the storyboard, only in the final film.
    (Remember in pre-refrigerator days, ice was delivered to your door.)
    It’s also interesting to see which scenes were not in the completed short, like the country drive (A5a & A5b). And when the owner buys a new car, the boards show the new model, but in the short, it cuts straight from “What I need is a new car” to Susie sitting in the used car lot, thus keeping the plot centered on Susie and not de-railing it to another character.
