I am suprised nobody has made a thread regarding One Man

Band
. What more can I say? This is an excellent short film. Very funny, great gags, and of course

great music!

The music is such a

highlight, as is the twist of [spoil]when the little girl starts to play music and makes so much more

money![/spoil]

Oh yes, I love this little short. I thought it was very

charming when I first saw it in theaters. The music really keeps the audience going.



lizardgirl - Haha -- that's my favorite part, as well. :D

This is currently my favourite Pixar animated short. Charming, witty, and visually grand - what more can you

ask for?

CarFreak - For future reference, the little girl's name is

Tippy. ;)

I also love the textures of the clothing the characters wear.

Tippy's outfit reminds me a little bit of Boo's night-shirt, and of how much trouble the animators had when

trying to find just the right texture for the shirt (at least, I think they had some difficulty). Amazing to see

how far they have gone in the fields of such things as clothing, water, and fur/hair....

Oh wow. Can't

believe I missed this thread. I must say that it was good. But what I really loved was the music. It played a key

role in the short.

I missed it too! :P I do remember writing somewhere what I thought of it, but

I'll say it again. I really liked this one. I thought it was funny. And I love the music! I think it's the

violin that does it. I actually put it on my MP3 player.

I love Tippy's face RIGHT when she throws the coins behind her. And I also seemed to be the

only one in the theater who laughed when the Tuba player ripped the other guy's violin off when Tippy pointed at

it....I still laugh jsut thinkin' about it! Great Short.

It is hard for me to decide what my favorite part in the movie was. All of it was

incredibly funny. But if I had to choose, I would go with the part where Treble and Bass start having a Battle of

the One Man Band and then Tippy looses her coin.

The Star Swordsman - Heheh -- and then it falls right into the gutter. Knew

that was gonna happen. (snigger) :P

I think my favorite part has to be when Tippy earns a pile full of

money after playing the violin magnificently; and then she just drops the instrument and picks up the bag like it

was nothing. :lol:

And the look on Treble's and Bass's face was

absolutely hilarious.

Heheh -- yeah. :mrgreen:

Another thing I like about this little featurette

(and all of Pixar's films and shorts, for that matter) is that I notice something new every time I watch it. I

love it....
