Doc Hudson

Doc Hudson

Doc Hudson, aka 'The Fabulous Hudson Hornet,' is one of my main characters in the 2006 Disney/Pixar mega hit film, 'Cars.' He also has cameos in 'Cars 2' and 'The Incredibles.' He can also be found in the short film, 'Mater and the Ghostlight' and in the Cars video games. In other merchandise, he can be found in toys, books, pins, Disney art, and clothing.

He lived in Radiator Springs with the rest of the towns cars. Cars he can count on when he needs them are Sally, Mater, Sheriff, Lightning McQueen, Guido, Luigi, Fillmore, Ramone, Sarge, Flow, Red, Lizzie, and Mack. His enemies include Chick Hicks, his old racing sponsors, and everyone else that has done him wrong.

*Fact* His death between 'Cars' and 'Cars 2' was due to Paul Newman passing in between those films also. It was a nod to him.

Doc is a blue 1951 Hudson Hornet. He has white wall tires, blue eyes, and lots of steel finishing, and Hudson Hornet decals on the car. In most of the first film he is a very cranky old car, but ends up showing his supportive side towards the end of the film. He is very smart and is protective about the cars of Radiator Springs.

He has been voiced by two people: Corey Burton in the video games and the late great Paul Newman in 'Cars.' He was created by John Lasseter.

Doc can be found in the amazing Cars Land in Disney California Adventure. He is in Radiator Springs Racers, and he can also be found in Flo's V8 Cafe. 'Cars' is one of my favorite Disney/Pixar films and I hope they will continue to integrate them into the parks and putting movies together with them in it.
