Remember when an eight-minute cartoon could lift you to emotional heights and then bring you to tears mere moments later? I sure do. And Disney was the master of putting my emotions through the wringer. They have continued that tradition with recent shorts like “Feast” and “The Little Matchgirl,” but I still think a lot of their classic work is even better.
My parents introduced me to the world of classic Disney shorts from the ‘40s, ‘50s, and ‘60s at an early age. I loved the vast majority of them, but there was one that stuck in my brain so firmly that even when I forgot the name of it, I still remembered every moment of it. It’s called “Susie the Little Blue Coupe” and I recently rediscovered it. I’d like to share with you this little piece of perfection that captures the hope of youth, the tragedy of wasted potential, the fear of obsolescence, and the sweet joy of a new beginning.
I find myself loving old cartoons even more as an adult because as a kid I had such a limited perspective on them. Whether you’re a young child or a wizened adult, you are sure to get a lot of enjoyment out of 1952’s “Susie the Little Blue Coupe.” This is classic Disney at its finest.
This is the Deja Reviewer bidding you farewell until we meet again.
