Random Trivia For This Title:

  • Tin Toy -> Won the Academy Award for Best Animated Short, the first fully-CG film to do so.
  • The Adventures of André & Wally B. -> First use of motion blur and squash-and-stretch motion in computer animation.
  • Knick Knack -> Bobby McFerrin recorded the soundtrack to a rough cut with dummy credits that only read "blah-blah", so he ad-libbed some blah-blah-blahs for this portion. John Lasseter enjoyed this and kept them in.
  • The Adventures of André & Wally B. -> John Lasseter made this film to entertain his children; ironically, it frightened them instead.
  • Luxo Jr. -> First computer-animated short nominated for an Academy Award.
