Funny / Pixar Shorts

Presto

Jack-Jack Attack!
  • Kari meets Syndrome:
    Kari: (with manic grin) "HIII! I'm Kari! I'm the BABY-SITTER!".
    Syndrome: (staring at her, decidedly unnerved) "...Well, hello."
  • Syndrome explaining that the 'S' on his costume stands for "Sitter."
    Syndrome: "Originally, I was gonna have initials for "Baby-Sitter," but then I would've been going around wearing a big BS, and..." (laughs) "...you understand why I couldn't go with that."
    • His facial expressions when he says "BS" make it even more hysterical.
  • When we cut back to Agent Rick Dicker:
    Agent Dicker: "And you believed him??"
    Kari: (snaps) "The baby was EXPLODING!! YOU EVER SAT AN EXPLODING BABY BEFORE, MR. DICKER?!"
  • Kari just... sitting there, having become, if not particularly accustomed to Jack-Jack, at least capable of dealing with whatever power manifests at a moment's notice, e.g. extinguishing him when he turns his flame on, or lazily deflecting his lasers with a hand-mirror.

Dug's Special Mission
  • All of it, as Dug repeatedly acts as The Millstone for the rest of the pack. "Alpha, the rock moved!"
    • Notable examples:
    Alpha: Now, your mission is to sit on that rock.
    Dug: Okay! (jumps to the other rock causing the rock Alpha, Beta, and Gamma are on to tilt. The three dogs begin running around trying to even the balance, but the rock falls and the dogs fall, screaming)
    Dug: (jumping from rock to rock) Find the bird, find the bird! (Alpha, Beta, and Gamma follow, screaming as the rocks fall and Alpha goes down with one)
    Alpha: Ow! I am hurting!
    Dug: (calling down) Are you okay, Alpha?
    Alpha: (calling up) We will be getting you, DUUUUUUUUUUUUGGGG!!!!!!
    • Earlier, they make Dug sit in "the bird's favorite hole":
    Dug: I will stay in the hole. I will stay in the hole. I will... stay in the... [The hole is full of sand and he quickly starts to sink down the tunnel]
    Dug: Now I'm going down the hole. It is dark in the hole.
    [Alpha, Beta, and Gamma are hunting Kevin, only a few yards away]
    Alpha: This is our day, my lieutenants. Master will have much rewa-
    [his ears perk up, Kevin runs away, and Dug falls on top of them in a heap of sand]
    Dug: [sitting on top of the three, who are half-buried in sand] Hey! My pack is in the hole, too!

George and AJ

Luxo Jr.
  • Really, the whole thing. It's barely two minutes long, but owing to it's a landmark achievement in CGI character animation, the two characters, neither of whom speak or even have faces, are able to communicate exactly what they're thinking with masterful timing and gestures.
  • The end. After the smaller desk lamp accidentally deflates the ball he was jumping on, he runs off-screen, with the bigger lamp looking after him...only to recoil in surprise when the smaller lamp comes back with an even bigger ball. The other lamp looks at the camera and shakes its head like it's saying, "He'll never learn."

Lifted
  • The poor alien. Just his facial expressions.
  • The alien ship crashing onto the house unexpectedly. Subverted heartwarming ending, anyone?
  • A small one, but the little alien pushing his teacher out of the way, leaving a large handprint which starts slowly sucking back into shape like gelatin. If memory serves, Pixar built a new software simulation engine just for that gag.
  • Then there's the moment when the alien just completely gives up in frustration and starts hitting all the switches.
    • And the result of this action.

For The Birds
  • The tiny birds. Seriously, they all sound like squeaky toys.
  • When all the littler birds are mocking the big, goofy one when they first see him.
  • Then comes the appropriately karmic comeuppance. Nekkid birdies!

Knick Knack

Day and Night
  • At the end of "Day & Night", when Night has dawned upon Day, and he/she/it immediately realizes... hot sunbathing girl!

La Luna
  • When the little boy is holding his papa and grandpa's brooms, and the broomheads both resemble their respective facial hair.

Mater and the Ghostlight
  • in the ending scene before the credits, the Sheriff warns Mater, who was already scared out of his wits over the non-existent Ghostlight, about the Screaming Banshee. After the credits are done rolling, we're treated to a scene of a monstrous truck (who is most likely the Screaming Banshee himself) looming over Mater. His reaction upon turning around? Warn the truck about a "Banshee" and wish him goodnight before leaving.

Mike's New Car
  • "It's like we've unleashed the panther."
  • The part where the car goes berserk and a guy walking down the street sees it and starts running in the other direction.
  • "Hey! Don't just sit there! Push the button!"
  • Sulley: (cell phone rings and he answers it) Hello?
    Mike: PUSH THE BUTTON!!!!!
  • After Sulley breaks off the mirror.
  • Combined with Crowning Moment of Heartwarming: The DVD Commentary for Mike's New Car. Hearing the kids' interpretation of what exactly their parents do for a living is both funny and adorable.
  • In a rare comical example of Jump Scare, Mike's sudden shout after getting annoyed by Sulley's constant playing with the ultra-adjustable seat.
    Mike: WILL YOU CUT IT OUT ?!

Toy Story Toons: Hawaiian Vacation
  • The return of Spanish Buzz, and his lightstick fire dancing.
    Buzz (Spanish Mode): We removed the poop from the kitty litter.
    Mrs. Potato Head: Ohh, Spanish is so beautiful!
  • Chuckles the Clown leading the luau, reading his lines completely deadpan.
  • What about the part with Ken and Barbie pretending that they were deep-sea diving? Not only do the Pizza Planet aliens blow bubbles in the empty fish tank to simulate ocean water, but then Hamm switches the TV that they were swimming in front of from a tranquil underwater scene with fish to a shark submerging out of the water, making Ken and Barbie freak out.
    Hamm: (to Buttercup) Shark Week.
    Buttercup: Nice!
  • There's also the part with Mr. Pricklepants having the three Pizza Planet aliens audition for his latest production. Initially, he thought that the first two aliens' performances were mediocre or dreadful, but he liked the third one's great emotion. The cincher? All three aliens were uttering their trademark "Ooh" in the exact same tone.
  • And let's not forget at the end of the short where Ken and Barbie stepped outside in the snow in their winter clothes to share their first kiss before walking off the front step of the porch and into the deep spot of the snow. The scene after the credits even showed Woody and the others using a blow dryer to defrost Ken and Barbie from the ice block that they were frozen solid in.
    • The other toys' comments during this scene:
      Slinky Dog: What're they doing out there?
      Buttercup: It's gotta be... a bazillion degrees below!
      Hamm: Good thing they're wearing the 1982 winter weekend collection.
    • Then just at the moment where Ken and Barbie are about to fall in the snow:
      Mrs. Potato Head: How romantic.
      Mr. Potato Head: Yeah, 'til they fall off the deck.
      (cue the couple falling into the snow)
      Hamm: ...I'll get the shovel.
  • Horseback riding.
    Woody: Ride like the wind, Bullseye!"
    Ken: Ride like the wind, Buttercup!
    Buttercup: Okay, get off me.
  • The Bonnielikeoke motel.
    Ken: I thought we were staying at a resort?
    (Jessie puts up sitcky note with the word "resort" on it over the word "motel")
    Potato Head: Welcome to the Bonnielikeoke resort!
  • As soon as Bonnie leaves, Woody's first order of business is to play checkers with Slinky Dog. He asks Slinky if he's ready to lose at checkers and Slinky replies, "When pigs fly!"
    Hamm: (to Buttercup) Actually, I had an uncle who was a pilot.
    Buttercup: Really?
    Hamm: No, not really.

Cars Toons
  • In "Tokyo Mater": "I'M STOCK!!!"
  • The Incredibly Lame Pun in "Unidentified Flying Mater" after Mater asks if he should take the UFO to his leader.
    Mater: (gesturing toward several liters of oil) Well, here's all my liters!
    UFO: Yum!
  • In "Air Mater", Mater's attempt to land after his initial flight:
    Mater: (landing properly) Got it! (rolls upside-down) Lost it! (rolls right-side-up) Got it! (rolls over and over until he stops, upside-down) Lost it.
  • Whenever McQueen tries to interject that Mater's stories didn't happen, he turns it around and says "You were there too!" And lo and behold, Lightning McQueen is suddenly a part of Mater's crazy tale.
    • And at the very end of each short, when McQueen continues to try to interject against Mater, something happens right then associated with Mater's tale in question to ensure that what happened was Real After All.

Your Friend the Rat
  • The intro to the Black Plague part. "It doesn't go from rats and darkness to rats and death skulls!"
    Director: My script says "rats and death skulls."
  • The exaggerated depiction of the war against rats, with clips of Victory Through Air Power thrown in.
    Remy: We rats see ourselves as equal to man, but you humans don't seem to see it that way. SO IT'S BEEN WAR! A WAR WITHOUT END!
  • MOUNTIES VERSUS GIANT ROBOTIC RATS.
  • The very end, which involves a cautionary message allegedly from the clip's producers that scrolls by to remind the audience that rats are vicious, unsanitary, pestilent vermin, and anyone who interacts with them do so at their own risk, all against Remy and Emile's vigorous protesting in the background. At one point, they physically try to block the message from scrolling, but to no avail.
    The views expressed are not necessarily the views of Pixar Animation Studios or the Walt Disney Company. Interaction between rats and humans should be deemed an ultra-hazardous activity involving risks including, but not limited to, exposure to various diseases, serious bodily injury, permanent disability, paralysis, mutilation, constipation and death. Rat bites can lead to disease transmission including, but not limited to, rat-bite fever, rat-borne typhus, trichinosis, leptospirosis, hantavirus and of course, the Bubonic Plague. Although the authors maintain fleas were the primary transmitter of the black plague, all right-thinking people know it was the rat, which is a dirty and disgusting creature to be avoided in perpetuity ad infinitum. Should you choose to interact with rats, you hereby assume any and all risk of injury and disease and hereby release and discharge Pixar Animation Studios and the Walt Disney Company and their employees, agents, officers, aunts, uncles, children and pets from any and all liabilities, claims, demands, losses or damages caused to you or alleged to be caused, in whole or in part, by your silly insistence on rat interaction.
Toy Story Shorts: Small Fry
  • The entire performance of Jane Lynch as a support group moderator, and pretty much every toy in the group.
    • Recycle Ben in particular cracks this troper up, for whatever reason.
    "My name is Recycle Ben, and I got recycled!"
    • Lizard Wizard's squeak of delight when Buzz picks him up is too hilarious for words. Same goes for his jittery excited anticipation when Buzz is supposed to rejoin the group. Also Buzz's deadpan expression while grudgingly pretending to play with Lizard Wizard is priceless.
    • "Kids don't like PizzaBot. PizzaBot sad."
  • After getting kicked in the rump by Mini-Buzz, Hamm asks someone to tackle him. Woody barrels Mini-Buzz seconds later at the end of his song. "Thank you."

Partly Cloudy
  • EVERYTHING. God, that poor, poor stork....
  • The reveal of the stork's head being completely covered in porcupine quills. But what really sells it is the nervous little laugh that accompanies it.

Mr. Incredible and Pals
  • This exchange in the commentary:
    Frozone: Frozone is only involved in quality work. Crappy animation reflects badly on me-
    Mr. Incredible: Oh for pete's sake, it's not you- it's a cartoon!
    Frozone: -it's my likeness! And now you have me involved in this commentary- further connecting me to work that is clearly inferior, and connecting me WITH A RABBIT! DID YOU OKAY THE RABBIT?!
    Mr. Incredible: I HAD NOTHING TO DO WITH THE RABBIT! I DON'T KNOW WHERE THEY GOT THE RABBIT!
    Frozone: WELL, SOMEBODY OKAYED THE RABBIT!
  • And earlier:
    Frozone: Oh, oh, I get caught! The black superhero gets caught!
    Mr. Incredible: Well, just a minute ago you were complaining that they made you white.
    Frozone: Oh, that's right! The tanned superhero gets caught!
  • This exchange:
    Frozone: Why's everybody got lady lips? Are those human lips, whose are they?!
    Mr. Incredible: I was- [Cracks up for a second] I was told it was a new process... a breakthrough!
    Frozone: Ooh, a new process! And what would that new process be, Mr. I?! Cheap-O-Rama?!
  • The whole short itself is funny in a So Bad, It's Good kind of way.

Toy Story Shorts: Partysaurus Rex
  • Seeing the fuzzy toilet seat cover resembles Sully's fur. This YouTube comment says it best...
    "R.I.P. Sully, 2001-2012. May he forever warm our butts."
  • "Aw man, the floaters have all the fun!" "WHAT UP FISHES?!"
  • Desperate to end the bathtub party quickly before it overflows, Rex pulls on a stopper and turns off the water. Then it's revealed he accidentally turned on the shower.
  • A little police toy car drives by, seemingly to control the situation. Then the police car dives into the water for the fun.

Geri's Game
  • Just everything. It's all one big Mind Screw: Is there actually two of the same man? Does he have a split personality?
  • The way that Geri with glasses beams at Geri without glasses after winning the chess game.
    • How he won deserves mention: after being left with only his king, and being one move away from losing, he fakes a heart attack and, when Normal!Geri looks down to check on him, he flips the board around. And, shockingly, Normal!Geri doesn't notice.
      • There's also the fact that Normal!Geri was confused that this happened, even going so far as to check his own heart/pulse. That's right, Geri got so wrapped up in his game that he thought he actually had a heart attack.
    • And what is the point of getting so into the game? A set of false teeth.
  • What makes this even more Hilarious in Hindsight is that this may very well be the same old man who repairs Woody in Toy Story 2, and who even keeps his chess pieces in one of the drawers of his tool chest!
