"what's with the rabbit?"
30 November 2006 | by Quinoa1984See all my reviews

I wasn't expecting this little made-for-DVD special short cartoon, Mr. Incredible and Pals, to be THIS funny, but it is. It's sort of in a really cheesy, stupid way funny too, and I couldn't get enough of it not only as a fan of the Incredibles but in what it was spoofing too. The moving 'human' mouths over the bad animated faces reminded me of the cartoons from the 60s- definitely the inspiration- the kind that were featured very briefly and oddly on a TV screen in Pulp Fiction. Story? There is none, really, Mr. Incredible and Frozone go to stop some Lady-bug lady or other from making traffic a means to conquer the world. The big joke in all of this is there is basically next to no REAL animation here, and coming in the same package as a film so complex in its CGI stylizations and wonderment like the Incredibles, it's a really hilarious, spot-on work that mocks it greatly.

I wonder really if kids younger than I will really understand the big joke about it, but for the parents or other adults and teens and others who bought the DVD, the joke might not be lost on them. It's all one big goof, basically, but it's made even funnier when listening to the audio commentary track, where Craig T. Nelson and Sam Jackson- as the characters- comment on this TV pilot that never actually aired in the US, and how embarrassed Frozone gets seeing all of this, particularly with a very random rabbit that keeps getting a close-up to bounce up and down (eventually even the at-first defensive Mr. Incredible has to stop and says it stinks more or less). In fact, I'd say I laughed even harder during the commentary than I did during the actual short itself, as Jackson in the Frozone character really got to some points that I didn't expect, like saying that the creators of the TV show made his Frozone white, or rather 'tan'. It's great stuff, is what I'm saying here.
