Film Fest - Pixar Shorts

One of my favorite parts in watching a new Pixar movie is the short cartoon that usually precedes it.

Up until this week, my favorite of these was Knick Knack, the brilliant silent film that followed the thwarted love life of a snow globe bound toy snowman.  I still love this.  But over the holiday I was introduced to a couple others that pushed this former favorite (if you'll forgive the phrase) off the top shelf.

My two new favs are: Presto!, about the conflict between a stage magician and his rabbit, and Lifted, a breath-taking study of space alien training.  Breathtaking quite literally because I was gasping with laughter.

Funny, funny, funny!
