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>

"The baby was exploding!!!!!!!!!! have you ever seen an exploding baby before?!?!?!?!?!"
16 January 2013 | by (Valhalla) – See all my reviews

My father is a HUGE Pixar fan. Today I got bored and watched whatever the hell he was watching, which was a collection of Pixar short movies. Out of all of them (I do mean all of the shorts) this one is my favourite.

The plot is good. Which is that Kari is babysitting Jack-Jack and in the process he discovers his powers of teleportation, levitation, sticking to ceilings, phasing through solid objects, combustion and laser eyes which happens in the process of Kari playing the kid Mozart.

This is a very entertaining watch. If you don't like it then it's only 5 minutes long. So watch it if you want to see a combusting baby.
