Suzy Snowflake

"Suzy Snowflake" is a song written by Sid Tepper and Roy C. Bennett, made famous by Rosemary Clooney in 1951 and released as a 78 RPM record by Columbia Records, MJV-123.

Suzy is a snowflake playfully personified. It is commonly regarded as a Christmas song, although it makes no mention of the holiday. The child-oriented lyrics celebrate the fun of winter.

A cartoon short based on the song was made in 1953 by Centaur Productions, with stop-motion animation created by Wah Ming Chang. It is annually shown during the Christmas season on WGN-TV in Chicago,[1] along with another production by Centaur, "Hardrock, Coco and Joe" and an early UPA version of "Frosty the Snowman". WJAC-TV in Johnstown, PA also runs these three cartoon shorts during the Christmas season.

Clooney later re-recorded the song for her 1978 Mistletoe Records album Christmas with Rosemary Clooney. It has been covered by other artists, most notably Soul Coughing in 1997.
