A unique, talented artist who left an indelible print on The Walt Disney Company, Blair is perhaps best known for designing the Disneyland attraction "it's a small world," as well as for her concept art for Disney animated films "Cinderella," "Alice in Wonderland, "Peter Pan," and more. The ladies share some of the backstories behind her work, as well as internet theories about five-legged goats. And what do "Mommie Dearest" and Pepsi have in common? You'll have to listen to find out!
