The plushies have tags attached, but you'll most likely find these only in Pixar's gift shop. Wild guess, though.

Those are so cool! I'm going to agree with PV and say that they where freebies at Pixar. But it would be awesome to have a Mr. B.!

I don't think Pixar has a gift shop....... At least they didn't when I was there. They had this rack of Pixar t-shirts out by the front door, and I was going to get one, but we found out that rack wasn't supposed to be out there and I was like: :( Dang.

I recently posted on the blog about Empire Online's exclusive video tour of the studio, and I found the first paragraph on the page intriguing:

"Invites to Pixar's Emeryville, California headquarters are few and far between, so when we received one at Empire Towers there was much excitement, not to mention requests for toys from the gift shop."

;)

I so want to visit that gift shop. It would be like you'd have to spend up big there and choose wisely 'cause you may never get to go there again. I wonder if they sell Stu plushes there, or other short film characters... That would be cool since there is a very limited run of Pixar short film merchandise anyway, and some of the best characters are from their short films.

But back on topic, I guess. ;-)

I remember at one time there was a mystery as to what Stu's bottom half looked like: mystery solved!

Oh awesome. I love the transition to plush. There are a couple more short film plush toys in Jeff Pidgeon's Flickr set here. See if you can spot them. He confirmed that they are only available at the Pixar shop, though.

From my observation, he looks like a frog. :P Really, really cute though.

Thanks for that link, Martin! I don't remember wondering about that, but that was interesting anyway. :)

I'm really surprised that they've even made Lifted plushies! And yeah, that's a point- we don't actually see Stu's bottom half. I've never thought about that. :lol: Thanks for the link, martini. :D

I saw this on my DVD when I bought the Pixar Short Films, and it's so funny. I like when their trying to take the guy at first and then they try to take him out the window and he bangs into the wall. LOL

I think when the human started bouncing around the house was one of the funniest parts.

Haha, yes please!

What I found was the greatest experience of the flick was the way the music interacted. The music was so well done that I was convinced that the UFO was flying away forever under the command of Stu. I (for one) was actually extremely surprised when it dropped on the house.

But maybe I'm just not too bright ;)
