Pixar's unprecedented string of hit animated features was built on the short films in this collection. John Lasseter and Ed Catmull used these cartoons the way Walt Disney used the "Silly Symphonies" during the 1930s: as a training ground for artists and a way to explore the potential of a new medium. Although it's only 90 seconds long, "Luxo, Jr." (1986) ranks as the "Steamboat Willie" of computer animation: For the first time, audiences believed CG characters could think and feel. (It was also the first CG film to make audiences laugh.)

When the artists began work on Toy Story, they had learned so much from the shorts, they were ready to undertake that landmark creation. In the later shorts, the viewer can see the artists continuing to experiment: with a more realistic human figure in "Geri's Game" and with new ways of suggesting atmospheric effects in "Boundin'." Some of the more recent shorts continue the adventures of the characters from the features. "Jack-Jack Attack" reveals what happened to the hapless baby-sitter while The Incredibles were off fighting Syndrome, while "Mater and the Ghost Light" shows that life goes on for the inhabitants of Radiator Springs. When Sully from Monsters, Inc. tries to adjust his seat in "Mike's New Car," the animators prolong the moment to wring every drop of humor from the situation--just as an earlier generation of animators milked Wile E. Coyote's antics for all they were worth. The long-unseen films for Sesame Street are an unexpected bonus. A delightful collection of entertaining shorts, and a significant chronicle of the growth of computer animation. --Charles Solomon

HOT! You can't beat the quality of Pixar's movies on Blu-ray.

Although this is cheap and the shorts are great I'd say you'd be better off buying the actual movies and you get most of the content of this set anyway. Everyone should own Monsters Inc!! Not voting either way as a result.

I'm not a fan of Monsters Inc, Cars or The Incredibles. Love their other films though.

I got this no long before Xmas. This does showcase what Pixar can do! Great watch and funny humour.

Looks amazing in HD too! Hot

I know they are great animations, but having 52 minutes of those is not a lot, don't you agree?

Agree. Although they are nice to see for the imagination and creativity of Pixar, paying the equivalent of a full price movie for a hand full of shorts isn't value for money IMO. So cold from me

You're better off buying one of the volumes of Looney Tunes/Merrie Melodies DVDs for about the same price; a load more animations showcasing the talents of Tex Avert/Fred Quimby et al that no doubt inspire many of the Pixar company

The bluray version or the dvd?

Spot on. Hardly a hot deal in my opinion, with a massively inflated RRP. I'm an avid fan of Pixar but this just doesn't represent value for me. Pick up one of their films for this price instead!
