I feel so sorry for Nick! Man, does

that guy have it bad!! But it's such a great Short . . . but sheesh, the last scene just had that same feel as

when Woody's match was blown out by the passerby car. Just - You gotta be kidding

me!!


Knick Knack is has always been number 3/4 on my list of PIXAR Shorts, after One Man

Band & Geri's Game!

Haha -- I know. I was thinking, "No way....". (chuckles) Although, my sister

and I figured out how he could eventually escape: He could just open the "Exit" door, dig deep

underneath the pebbles, and reappear outside his little home. ;)

It's just the simple things that make it funny along with

a ridiculously funny soundtrack. Don't expect a good joke to come out of it. That's what "silent"

cartoons aim for, physical and situational humor. Plus it's got a little dust to it so your "funny"

might not be the type of funny the short was aiming for.But it's all good :mrgreen:

More like

"Prison" - and I get the feeling that Nick would have simply broken down instead of digging!

But

then again, he IS a PIXAR character, and they are mighty resilient . . . .

Haha -- "broken down". 8D

Indeed,

they are. Cartoons can do anything, even though Nick probably wouldn't be classified as a "true"

cartoon. Actually, I take that back. He would be. ;)

I absolutely

love this, must watch it about once a month at least :lol:

I just love the way the credits have blah blah

over it, a phenomenon explained by John (I think) on the commentary version of the short.

Yeah, it would rule.

I just always want to know little details like that, where

is that music today, on some computer at Pixar. That would be so cool.

Ha -- yeah, I noticed that. I saw the "older"

version first, before I saw the...err..."revised" version. I know where to view the older version, if

anyone would like me to tell. ;)
