Trivia

Bobby McFerrin recorded the soundtrack to a rough cut with dummy credits that only read "blah-blah", so he ad-libbed some blah-blah-blahs for this portion. John Lasseter enjoyed this and kept them in. See more »

An early Pixar gem
4 June 2003 | by (Jacksonville Beach) – See all my reviews

I first saw this Pixar short when it appeared in theaters in 1989 as part of a short-film project sponsored by American Express. It was like a great delight that popped up on the screen and then anonymously disappeared. I just saw the theatrical Pixar release Finding Nemo, and Pixar has had the great good sense to preface their new feature with this charming short. It's a 4-minute gem, with hilarious gags and great music by Bobby McFerrin. I hope Pixar puts this out on the Finding Nemo DVD. In the meantime, if you're seeing Finding Nemo, don't be late--Nemo is very good on its own, but this short is worth the price of admission in itself!
