A sheep dances proudly in his southwestern landscape, until one day his wool is sheared and he is left naked. He's depressed and shy, until a cheerful jackalope comes along and shows him how to leap proudly and not to be ashamed.

Storyline

In the not too distant past, a lamb lives in the desert plateau just below the snow line. He is proud of how bright and shiny his coat of wool is, so much so that it makes him want to dance, which in turn makes all the other creatures around him also want to dance. His life changes when one spring day he is captured, his wool shorn, and thrown back out onto the plateau all naked and pink. But a bounding jackalope who wanders by makes the lamb look at life a little differently in seeing that there is always something exciting in life to bound about. Written by Huggo

Quotes

Sheep: I used to be somethin', all covered in fluff, and I'd dance in the sunlight and show off my stuff. Then they hauled me away, in a manner quite rough, and sheared me and dumped me back here in the buff.

Very good, but not one of Pixar's best shorts
8 February 2008 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

BOUNDIN' is a bright and colorful short by Pixar about a sheep that loves to jump and bounce. However, his bounce disappears the day he is shorn and the spring in his step is slow in returning. It is all told through narration that sounds rather reminiscent of Gene Sheppard (though it's Bud Luckey) and it seems to be aimed mostly towards the kids.

I have seen BOUNDIN' a few times and I must say that it is enjoyable and well made--which you have come to expect from a Pixar film. However, it isn't among the best shorts by Pixar (despite a snappy narration) and didn't seem as groundbreaking or strange as HARVIE KRUMPET--which just had an odd little charm about it that made much more impact on me as a viewer. The bottom line is that the animation is top-notch, but the story itself rather limp. This probably is why although both films were nominated for the Best Animated Short Oscar, KRUMPET won--the story was simply more involving.
