Storyline

When Day, a sunny fellow, encounters Night, a stranger of distinctly darker moods, sparks fly! Day and Night are frightened and suspicious of each other at first, and quickly get off on the wrong foot. But as they discover each other's unique qualities--and come to realize that each of them offers a different window onto the same world-the friendship helps both to gain a new perspective. Written by Pixar

Quotes

[Day and Night find themselves in front of a radio station, where a voice can be heard only when Day is in front of it]
Radio voice: Fear of the unknown... They are afraid of new ideas... They are loaded with prejudices, not based upon anything in reality, but based on... "If something is new, I reject it immediately because it's frightening to me." What they do instead is just stay with the familiar. You know, to me, the most beautiful things in all the universe, are the most mysterious.

Not as fun as other shorts but technically brilliant - 80%
2 August 2010 | by (Hampshire, England) – See all my reviews

No matter how many Pixar films I catch at the cinema, I always forget about the bonus short film that precedes the main event. In the case of "Toy Story 3", we are treated to this which is arguably one of the more surreal and unusual short films Pixar have produced. However, it is possibly one of the most ambitious and technically impressive shorts I've seen as it mixes traditional animation with Pixar's usual CG antics.

Day and Night are two very different characters, offering different perspectives on the same scene. While initially treating each other with suspicion and out-right aggression, a radio message overheard by the squabbling duo soon offers the pair the chance to realise that being different can have its advantages as well.

While being technically very good and well thought out, "Day & Night" offers less of the entertainment seen in the likes of "Presto" or "One Man Band". But as soon as the penny drops, it becomes a thought-provoking modern fable about the dangers of racism and the beauty of tolerance and acceptance. Personally, if I want to be preached to then I'll go to church rather than the cinema but that doesn't stop "Day & Night" from being another Pixar gem and when you get it for free, you can't really complain, can you?
