Trivia

This was made in the days before Pixar existed in its own right when John Lasseter and his crew were working for Lucasfilm. Despite their successes there, the animation department was in line to be axed, so they put together a business plan. It was sufficiently well thought through to attract Steve Jobs of Apple who bought Pixar for $5 million cash and $5 million in bankroll funding. See more »

Goofs

[This goof only happened in its original SIGGRAPH release] Throughout most of the film, the characters were incomplete and made of pencil test line drawings over the completed backgrounds. This was corrected when re-released. See more »

Amazing in its proper context
12 February 2008 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

I gotta admit that if you watch this film today and don't understand the context for it, then you will most likely not be particularly impressed. It's such a very simple animated short and one that seems amazingly ordinary--something you could easily make today given the right rendering software and a home computer. However, think back to 1984. People rarely had home computers and those who did had systems that had major compatibility issues--with not much more power than a modern calculator (less in some cases). There were no hard drives--those that did exist were minuscule. Macintosh computers were yet to come and IBM compatible computers used primitive versions of DOS and many were using Commodore and other simple computers. And, most importantly, most games were either text only or had very, very rudimentary graphics. In this context, ANDRE AND WALLY B is absolutely amazing and breathtaking. The Pixar folks were not yet a big company but just a few individuals doing work on huge computers and they had to design all the software themselves!! And, in spite of all this, the graphics were lovely and the story of a cute bee quite watchable--even though it was really more an experimental film than anything else. Oddly, while this film is not terribly exciting today, I still prefer it to a couple of the later Pixar films (such as RED'S DREAM). A great start.
