If BURN-E (a welding robot) had known how much trouble he'd be caused by WALL-E's pursuit of EVE, then he'd have taken the day off.

Storyline

The adventures of BURN-E, a robot on the same ship as WALL-E and EVE. BURN-E's main job is fixing damaged machinery. He pretty much spends his entire day welding (hence his name). His daily routine is severely disrupted due to WALL-E and EVE's romance, as this causes all sorts of mishaps with the spaceship. Not only are his work and routine disrupted but one such mishap results in him being locked out of the spaceship. From there all manner of adventures ensue. Written by grantss

In this film (which is supposed to coincide with events in "WALL-E"), BURN-E appears outside the garbage bay airlock just as the door closes. In "WALL-E", BURN-E does not appear. Also, a ledge has been added around the ship (and under the airlock door) for BURN-E to roll along; however, this ledge does not appear in "WALL-E". See more »

A one joke short but works brilliantly
24 February 2012 | by TheLittleSongbirdSee all my reviews

Having absolutely loved WALL-E, I was all for seeing the short film that came with it. Burn-E is just as good as the movie it featured with, and while not quite in the same league as Geri's Game, Knick Knack, Jack-Jack Attack, Presto and One Man Band, it is one of Pixar's better short films to me. The animation with beautiful colours and atmospheric backgrounds is amazing, the music is haunting and understated and the story has an enchanting atmosphere to it. Burn-E may be a one-joke short, but seeing as the joke itself is funny, it works brilliantly. Burn-E, like WALL-E, is not just endearing but there is a very human side to him which makes us identify with him all the more. In conclusion, beautifully animated and enchanting, this is a great short film and perhaps one of the better one-joke animations I've seen. 9/10 Bethany Cox
