Pixar Short Films Collection: Volume 2

If you love Pixar's short films but don't want to go back through to the beginning of every Pixar DVD to find them, than you'll be delighted to find out that even more of Pixar's short films are available as one complete DVD and Blu-Ray in the Pixar Short Films Collection: Volume 2! This short film collection includes some familiar characters and settings, like "Your Friend the Rat", featuring Remy (from Ratatouille) and his brother Emile, as well as the Toy Story Toon "Hawaiian Vacation" and "BURN-E" based on the characters from Wall-E. It also includes lots of fun shorts with brand new characters. Here's a list of the shorts below:

  • Burn-E: A hard-working robot finds himself locked out of a ship, and needs to find a way to complete his task.
  • Dug's Special Mission: Based on the character from Up!, Dug goes on a foolhardy mission to hunt for the Bird of Paradise.
  • George & AJ: Another Up!-inspired short, senior citizens around the city unite and try to plot their own escapes.
  • Air Mater: Mater decides he wants to learn to fly.
  • Time Travel Mater: When a clock stands still, Mater travels back in time.
  • Your Friend the Rat: Life from the point of view of a rat, as told by Remy and Emile!
  • Partly Cloudy: Storks deliver babies and other such things happen up in the clouds.
  • Presto: Presto the Magician forgets to feed to his rabbit, and finds he isn't the only one with some tricks up his sleeve.
  • Day & Night: Two opposites meet and form the perfect friendship.
  • Hawaiian Vacation: Toy Story's Woody and Buzz help Barbie and Ken have the vacation of their dreams.
  • Small Fry: Buzz is left behind at a fast food restaurant and finds himself in a self help group for discarded free toys. 
  • La Luna: A young boy comes of age when he finds out about his dad and grandad's strange line of work.

The Bottom Line

Arguably one of the most exciting parts of seeing a new Pixar film is the short film that they use to kick off the movie watching experience. The format is perfect for telling continuing stories for characters that audiences already know and love and new stories that are perfect and complete in and of themselves. Pixar Short Films Collection: Volume 2 is  a fun collection of some of your fave shorts all in one, and getting a chance to see the student films of the directors is fantastic for true fans of animation.

Pixar Short Films Collection: Volume 2 Rating: 4
