Pixar Shorts coming to DVD

This looks super cool. Pixar will be releasing the Pixar Short Films Collection on DVD November 6. The DVD will include thirteen cartoon shorts plus commentaries, behind-the-scenes footage, animation tests, and a featurette.

I currently own a VHS copy of Tiny Toy Stories, which contains 5 of Pixar’s earliest shorts. Although the computer rendering is crude by modern standards, the stories are rich with the delightful charm and humor that is Pixar. Watching all 13, plus commentaries to boot, will be a real treat.

Also on November 6 Ratatouille hits DVD, as well as a 2-disc platinum edition of Cars. I’ll probably skip the Cars DVD, since it was clearly Pixar’s weakest effort. (Weak by Pixar standards, that is. By typical Hollywood standards, Cars is still highly entertaining.) But if the special features are nice enough I may splurge. I have yet to see Ratatouille, but I’m really hoping to catch it before it leaves theaters.

Either way, on Nov. 6 I’ll be walking out of Wal-Mart with some new Pixar goodies.

  1. Well, I’ll be getting “Ratatouille” only on DVD November 6. The Pixar Short Films Collection and the 2-Disc Platinum for Cars as Christmas gifts. Honestly, I LOVE THE PIXAR FILMS. FINDING NEMO AND CARS ARE MY 2 FAVORITES ALONG WITH THE FIRST TOY STORY AND RATATOUILLE.

  2. I had the original VHS tape, “Tiny Toy Stories”. I purchased the Blue Ray release, “Pixar Short Films”. I may be sexist in my opinion, but I was very disappointed in Disney for performing a CGI mastectomy on the female character in the Knickknack short. While she was quite “endowed” in the VHS, in the Blue Ray she was completely flat. Had that been the original design, i would not care, but this change smells of political correctness gone mad.
    I am in awe of the quality of the disc, but dismayed at Disney’s PCing up the product.
