I have to say that both short films are excellent, but Partly Cloudy is much better than Day & Night,,,,,,

I love Partly Cloudy, but Day & Night was just so different for me. I loved the message behind it, and it was such an original idea. But Partly Cloudy was more classic storytelling... I can't pick :D

yeap, agree,,,,,,, I think that I was mistaken in using the expression much better, it is not fair, I love both, but I found Partly Cloudy so emotional, I guess that is the reason why I love it a little bit more,,,,

^ I see exactlt where you're coming from. The first time I saw Partly Cloudy I cried (yeah, I'm a sap :D) And I don't think I cried during Day & Night, but I got a different emotion watching that. I love them both <3

The thing about Day & Night is that it's so technically creative, it always stands out.

I love them both!! My favorite part of Partly Cloudy is when the cloud is mad because his stork left, but them he comes back with the helmit on. It's like a little family reunion.
And my favorite part of Day & Night is when they're hugging and the sun is even. It's so cute.

Partly Cloudy is my most favourite short thus far. It has the wonderful animation (just like Boundin') and the sweet pastel colours and it's much more vivid than other Pixar shorts.
It's amazing that Pixar has a unique ability to evoke strong emotions without any use of words.
I felt so bad for this poor cloud, but they showed a true stable friendship between the cloud and the bird. Even though the stork could leave that cloud forever and deliver innocent adorable babies from another cloud, he came back and stayed by his old friend's side. It's very touching.
Hehe, not to mention it's a good idea to show this short film to your kids when they ask you how they were born ;)

I can't say that Partly Cloudy is on my top five. But I believe it's on my top ten.
