My favorites include Tin Toy in which a destructive baby goes on the rampage while the terrified toys cower under a couch and a drummer-boy toy tries to appease the little urchin, the uplifting Boundin' - the story of a sheep that suffered from depression after shearing until a jackalope comes by and brings out spectacular new talents in the sweet animal. This one has great country music and the story is a rhyming poem.
Jack-Jack Attack is the scary tale of a babysitter trying to control a weird baby who has supernatural powers, and in Knick Knack a snowman desperately tries to join the fun in the sun by attempting escape from his snow dome - the music here is especially charming. Another good one is Mater and the Ghostlight, a story of cars and trucks with a great country & western soundtrack.
I also enjoyed For the Birds, a simple story of little bluebirds who were nasty to a bigger, awkward bird and paid for it by losing their feathers, and Lifted, the story of an attempted UFO abduction that didn't quite work out because of the incompetence of the trainee abductor. Those who have seen Toy Story, Monsters Inc, Finding Nemo and The Incredibles will probably not be too impressed, but I found the DVD highly entertaining and informative.

The Adventures Of Andre & Wally B
The earliest released Pixar short, a quick tale of a man being chased by a bee. Looks so crude today, but quite stunning in its time.
Big lamp plays ball with a smaller lamp. Their is so much expression exhibited by these two "characters", several human actors can learn from this mini.
Incredibly more complex in art and story, Pixar really started stretching their legs here. Beginning with a dreary nighttime rainstorm, we move into a lonely bike shop and spy a unicycle in the corner, and peer into it's dream. Very moving.
The precursor in so many ways to what we now know of as Toy Story. A toy is scared of a baby.
Bobby McFerrin provides the quirky catchy music that plays along as we see a very determined Snowman trapped in a snowglobe attempt escape to be with a mermaid. Yes, that is right.
And after taking several years off from the shorts in order to concentrate on thier full length films, Pixar jumped back into the game with...
An old man plays a death-defying game of chess. With himself. It is extremely noticeable the leaps and bounds Pixar has made here in terms of skill of rendering. And the story is great too!
I think it is great Pixar has combined all of these smart shorts onto one anthology DVD. These movies are clever, funny and creative. I have seen them several times and still appreciate them.
5 stars, hands-down; uplifting, cute and funny!
