I don't think it was supposed to have a moral. But I love this short! LOL every time. I've heard one person say that the big dopey bird was too dopey for his liking. :lol:

I bet the birds in it are somehow related to those pesky gulls in Nemo ;)

zada: You see it too? :wink: Well, maybe not exactly related, but just put them together and you got an annoying bird sound mix.

As for the moral, I think it represents real life in a way. After all, people have been made fun of just because they're different. And if you don't let them get to you, and act like they're just "squeaking" ( :lol: ) you might be in a better mood.

That short is one of my favorites. It makes me laugh all the time.

I agree with bright dot-dasher on this one- the moral is simply, don't make fun of those that are different to you, because what goes around comes around. Or something like that.

I was watching the Incredibles second disc DVD last night, and I noticed that one of the tiny "For the Birds" birdies makes an appearance. In the Incredibles sock puppets, the birdie plays the role of the omnidroid.

Best Pixar short to date. Funny as heck. I almost passed out from laughing. They even made a brief cameo in Cars.

Cute!
Nice story and, of course, nice animation.

I also love how they put this as a cameo in Cars.

The first time I saw this short was actually at church. A pastor showed this short to us because of its moral (displayed in a really cute way).

Killler123: No, actually. Back then, I barely had an interest in Pixar's CG movies (though now my opinion's definitely changed). In fact, back then, I didn't even know it was a Pixar short! Then, after seeing Monsters, Inc. on DVD, I saw the short again and found out. :)

Great shortey! When I watched it long ago for the first time, I didn't notice it was Pixar. Now, because the short is rather old, I see thet even THEN Pixarians were great in emotionizing characters!
Simple (text) signatures are very convenient: first, they do not eat too much traffic; second, they do not distract from the post itself, and third, they do not eat all the space and leave the posts noticeable.
