Partysaurus Rex

If you missed checking out Pixar’s Finding Nemo 3-D in theaters last month (and, if so, what is wrong with you? do you hate fun things? and laughter? and colors? and love?), you also missed out on seeing the full version of Pixar’s newest short, Partysaurus Rex. Well, unless you happened to be hanging around the Disney Channel on Monday night, when the short had its television premiere, but that’s neither here nor there really (false). What we’re trying to say is, hey! Partysaurus Rex is now available for your full watching enjoyment, so let’s do that! The third Pixar short film to use Toy Story characters – we’ve previously seen Hawaiian Vacation (which showed with Cars 2) and Small Fry (which was paired with The Muppets) – Partysaurus Rex stars Wallace Shawn‘s lovable bipedal worrier, Rex, as he attempts to cut loose during bathtime with Bonnie and some new friends. It’s a brand new Rex! A brand new day! And it looks like a Ke$ha video! Watch the full version of Partysaurus Rex after the break. It’s certifiably adorable.


Toy Story‘s resident worrier, Rex (as voiced by Wallace Shawn in the franchise), is not a good-time dino. He’s not a party bipedal carnivore. He doesn’t like to cut loose. But in the latest Toy Story short, Partysaurus Rex, the lovable plastic tyrannosaurus is bent on breaking out of his little box, styling himself as some kind of wild party dude when the toys’ new owner, Bonnie, dispatches him for bathtub duty with some new pals. And bathtub playtime is nuts. Director Mark Walsh explains, “if you’re a bath toy you get really intense playtime. It’s like a party. Then when the water goes down you can’t move. You’re helpless. And that’s pathetic, these guys in bottom of the tub all the time.” Oh, that does sound like the aftermath of a party. But just what appeals to Rex about these wild times? As Shawn tells it, “He’s sick of being the angel of goodness and sensibleness and caution and fear…He wants to stand on the side of pleasure and happiness and joy.” And Rex has something that none of the other bathtub toys have – arms. EW explains, “Rex puts his tiny arms to good use by turning on the water and getting the party going for those dried-out toys on his own – which leads to a sort of bubble-filled rave, complete with glow-in-the-dark toys making disco lights under an overturned colander and dance music by Grammy-nominated electronica musician BT.” Whoa. Check out a better look at the […]
