Storyline

In a dark room, Agent Rick Dicker interrogates Kari, a young girl with braces. He asks what happened. Kari explains that she was babysitting for an infant, Jack-Jack, who seems able to levitate, float, pass through walls, catch fire, and cause havoc. Kari stays nimble but barely holds on until an odd young man with orange hair and an "S" on his shirt rings the bell. Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

Trivia

In "The Incredibles," Kari says she plays Mozart for Jack Jack because "Mozart makes babies smarter." When Jack Jack bursts into flames, the dramatic music in the soundtrack is the "dies irae" from Mozart's Requiem Mass in D minor (K. 626). See more »

Ties with Presto and One Man Band as the best of the 2000s Pixar short films
21 February 2012 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I have always loved Pixar, and as much as I enjoyed The Incredibles I loved the short film that came with it even more, Jack-Jack Attack. The animation is simply tremendous, with beautiful colours and backgrounds throughout and a noir-ish feel at the start, and the music by the ever-reliable Michael Giacchino fits wonderfully, energetic and melodic. Jack-Jack Attack is wonderfully written too, it is both hilarious and cute, with a story that is fast-paced, zany and full of heart and the funniest Pixar protagonist in Kari. Bret Parker's voice work is nothing short of outstanding. Overall, a must see, one of Pixar's best of the 2000s with Presto and One Man Band, and one of my favourite short films from them. 10/10 Bethany Cox
