Pixar's dandy short films have previously been available on DVD, but not
in a neat collection like this. Ever since 1984's "The Adventures of André
and Wally B.," Pixar's amazing artists have given audiences little gems
of ingenious fun.
These days it's easy to take Pixar for granted. We've been accustomed to
seeing their features being released on a regular basis since "Toy
Story" (1995). Usually spliced in front of the feature is a short almost
guaranteed to win an Oscar. The shorts are often funny and charming in a
"Pixar Way," showing characters with expressive eyes and cute body
movement. Whether it's a lamp playing with a ball, or a little girl
showing two bumbling street musicians how to play music, Pixar's artists
have continued to push the boundaries of computer animation.
