In this episode, the Mouse Lounge presents Disney’s fascination with the automobile, or cars… to you and me.
From the Walt Disney Archives: At the 1964-1965 New York World’s Fair, Ford presented Disney's "The Magic Skyway," the second most popular exhibit at the fair, using Ford cars in an early prototype of the Omnimover system to move the audience through scenes featuring life-sized audio-animatronic dinosaurs and cavemen. Walt narrates this forgotten attraction of Yesterdayland.
Each week, in From the Vault we sample a clip from a classic Disney film, short, television or radio program, or Disneyland Record. This week, we take a ride back in time to June 6, 1952 for the release of Susie the Little Blue Coupe. The incomparable Sterling Holloway narrates.
Each week we present a high definition ride-through from a Disney Park East or a Disney Park West. This week, we double dipstick. First into Yesterdayland for a compilation track from Disneyland’s Autopia. Then we motor back east for a ride on Test Track in Epcot.
We'll close this week’s show with a replay of the Mouse Lounge Mix of John Mayer’s Route 66 from Disney/Pixar’s Cars.
