    Didn't realize that Pixar had mad that many shorts, tim. I've likely seen most of them and forgotten. it should be great fun watching them as a collective work o DVD.

    I'm ashamed to admit this, but it's too funny not to put out there.

    I honestly thought this was like, a shorts set. As in, something akin to underoos.

    I am really excited that they are going to release their shorst.

    The Pixar shorts department is where they do R&D and they get to try out new directors and such. I have had the opportunity to see that entire line-up at Pixar Studios in Emeryville in their main theater and it was a great treat! Very fun to see the development of their animation technology.

    While many of the listed shorts are on various other DVD's not all of these titles are available.

    All the shorts that had been created were released as a bonus on the CAV Laser Disc of Toy Story


    Included were Adventures of Wally B, Tin Toy, Red's Dream, Luxo Jr. and the uncensored version of Knick Knack. The other shorts have been released as part of the DVD's to the films that they were shown with theatrically. The only exception ar teh Luxo Jr. Sesame Street inserts that I've not seen outside of Sesame Street episodes.

    November 6th is going to be a VERY expensive day. Between this and Ratatouille and Cars and other nice Blu-Ray releases that day, I'm going broke.

    I just wonder, it's labeled "Volume 1." But, isn't everything on this disc just about everything available?

    I hope it's the original version of Knick Knack.
