Trivia

The film was completely rebuilt and re-rendered for release in theaters preceding Finding Nemo (2003). In this version, the girl on the "Miami" knick knack and the mermaid in the fish bowl have undergone a breast reduction, and the mermaid is now wearing a seashell bra rather than just starfish pasties, presumably to make the short more family friendly. However, both of the knick knacks can be seen in their "uncensored" form briefly in Toy Story 2 (1999). See more »

A Solid Animation Short
6 December 2003 | by (Pocatello, Idaho, USA) – See all my reviews

Before computer animation was all the rage, I bet the Pixar guys made this little gem simply as a labor of love. From this early creation, you can take a glimpse of the clever storytelling that would become a staple of Pixar's full-length features. This short gives you a chuckle as the disgruntled snowman struggles to get out of his snow globe to hang with the knick-knack ladies of Hawaii and Atlantis. It's quite a cute feature, but it can only go so far. I wouldn't consider it a classic like other animation shorts like `Mickey's Trailer' and `Duck! Rabbit, Duck!' but I think it will become a nice little treasure in the Pixar vault.

My IMDB Rating: 8/10
