Did You Know?

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 »

Early Pixar, 16 July 2004
Author: TheOtherFool from The Netherlands

Funny little short comedy by the Pixar people, which I saw as an extra on the Finding Nemo DVD.

A snowman is trapped in one of those glass snow domes, but he wants to break out as all the other toys are having a good time in the sun. So he tries to break/blow his way through but things just don't work for him. When he and the dome finally fall down, we think he can escape but again, the dome gets the better of him...

Well made and fun, we can see why Pixar became such a huge company over the years. If you have the Finding Nemo DVD, make sure you check this one out.
