Short Film of the Day: Pixar’s ‘Tin Toy’

Why Watch? Because it’s early magic.

Pixar has another movie hitting theaters tomorrow, and it seems like the consensus points to a bit of the magic that makes their animation stand out being lost on this one (just as it was lost on its predecessor).

But even if you’re not interested in Larry the Cable Guy making a lot of jokes as a tow truck, this short is a nice shot of history and heartwarming to brighten the day.

It’s easy to see Toy Story being born from this short directed by John Lasseter, but it’s a good thing the technology evolved.

What does it cost? Just 4 minutes of your time.
