Trivia: Pixar Shorts

  • Actor Allusion: In Hawaiian Vacation, Chuckles the Clown's luau chant translates to "Bound and rebound", a reference to the short Boundin' , which was narrated by Bud Luckey, the voice of Chuckles.
  • Adored by the Network: On ABC Family.
  • Executive Meddling: Subverted. It's assumed that the decrease of the women's bust size in Knick-Knack is Disney executive censorship as usual, but John Lasseter and the studio actually made the decision to do so themselves.
    • Parodied in Your Friend the Rat, which ends with a prolonged legalistic crawl warning people that Pixar does not encourage people to have contact with rats. Remy and Emile bitch about the inclusion of this producer-imposed warning (which is Comically Missing the Point of their presentation) and even push the crawling words aside as best they can.
  • Hey, It's That Guy!: In George and AJ, Russell is voiced by Peter Sohn, the animator on who he's based, as a result of the incomplete animatic nature of the short.
    • Most of the theatrical shorts with voices will have a Creator Cameo from the director or one of the animators.
    • The guy who does Carl's voice in George and AJ? Steve Purcell who fans of Sam & Max would know very well.
  • Permanent Placeholder: In Knick Knack, the "Blah Blah Blah" song during the credits was actually a result of vocalist Bobby McFerrin improvising. McFerrin, a vocalist famous for his a cappella work, was hired by Pixar to compose and perform the soundtrack for the film. The work print he was given to compose over featured "blah blah blah" as a placeholder for the credits, and he ran with it. The folks at Pixar liked it so much that it made the final cut.
