Pixar, despite only having so far released 13 films, has proved it can play this trope well.
A Bug's Life
- The scene where Flik finally stands up to Hopper and gives the speech about how Hopper was wrong about them being worthless and called out the grasshoppers for being afraid.
Real Life (That's right, Pixar has brought its powers of tearjerkiness into real life)
- The Pixar short from 1987, "Red's Dream". The moment with the unicycle just sitting in the shop waiting for someone to buy him just gets so many people.
