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>

Agent Rick Dicker: Tell me about the incident.
Kari: Well... It started out like any normal sitting gig, you know, with the reassuring of the parent and all.

A Film-Noir, Horror & Comedy Short All In One
27 June 2007 | by ccthemovieman-1See all my reviews

This animated short is almost like a scene that could have easily been part of the feature film, "The Incredibles." I guess that's why it's shown here as a short feature addition to that movie's DVD

The voice and slight speech impediment (actually braces, causing it) is hilarious. Kudos to Bret Parker for a great job in here as "Kari."

This a baby-sitter who has Superman-like powers and other weird things turning into a ball of fire. Of course, the unsuspecting baby-sitter totally freaks out. It's all fun to watch - just wild scenes after another including a film noir-like opening and closing scene with a detective that's going to make sure Kari doesn't reveal what she's seen.

Bizarre, to say the least, but a fun four minutes with tremendous visuals.
