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.
Babies both human and beast are created up in the stratosphere, by the clouds themselves. One cloud specializes in "dangerous" babies, creating a challenge for his loyal stork that has to deliver them.

The original 1989 version of "Knick-Knack" features exaggerated breasts on the two female figurines - the sunbather and the mermaid (the latter barely covered with starfish). This was meant to parody the absurd proportions of tacky figurines such as these, and explained why the snowman was so strongly attracted to them. In 2003, the short was remastered to show alongside Finding Nemo. In this version (which was sourced for all subsequent releases), the sunbather is flat-chested and the mermaid is now covered with a clam-shell top (a la The Little Mermaid). This was done due to discomfort with the original version by John Lasseter, who by this point was a father and felt uncomfortable showing the original version to his children. This original version is no longer available, with its last release on Toy Story's Laserdisc version. All subsequent releases, including the Pixar Short Films Collection, feature the 2003 edited version. See more »
