It was very well done and clever. And for some reason, it reminded me much of Ratatouille, especially the magician.

Yeah, the magician looks like he's straight out of ratatouille, he mostly resembles the lawyer a bit.

Just like how WALL-E stole the spot as my favorite Pixar film just earlier, presto also claimed the spot as my favorite short. I would stand a good twenty feet from anyone who could think up practical jokes like that. :lol:

I haven't laughed that much from watching something in a long time. Freakin' hilarious. It really got me energized and ready to see Wall-E right after.
It was also my first Pixar short in theatres, woo! :D

I just saw Presto and I have gotta say that it definetely falls in the top 5 in my favorite Pixar Shorts. [spoil]I thought the little bunny was cute and the entire act was so hilarious. Everytime he tried to pull the bunny out of the hat, it would always end up in a painful situation, and the audience, (both in the short and in the movie theatre) would laugh our heads off. I really liked the ending when the rabbit and the magician pulled the finale crash and burn miracle and ended up as partners in the end[/spoil].

This was a funny one. As much as it made me cringe, the ending was worth it. [spoil]The funniest part for me was that little pause before the audience of the magic act burst into applause. [/spoil] :lol:

Alec was a really adorable bunny. I think it is probably one of the cutest things Pixar ever animated.

Presto reminded me of the old WB cartoons that I watched growing up. I hope the marketers at Disney decide to make an Alec stuff animal toy as the bunny was a huge hit with the kids in the theater.
