I haven't seen this short in a while, but I'm trying to remember if there was a moral, or if they just wanted to do a really fun video about an elderly man. I'll need to give it a re-watch!

^True. They may have just wanted to tell a cute little story just for the fun of it. Nothing's ever wrong with that either.

I wonder if Bob Peterson knew that this would be the first in a long line of great character voices he would do...

I didn't know that Bob Peterson voiced Geri!

Yes, Bob Peterson voices Geri in the actual short "Geri's Game". However, he is voiced by Jonathan Harris (as "The Cleaner) in Toy Story 2 who also voiced Manny from A Bug's Life and is actually the real-life person who Geri is modeled after.

Thank you for that tidbit! I know a great deal of Pixar trivia, so it's great to hear some new ones!

Oh, you're welcome! Once I found he played Geri, I thought "Oh, I guess I can hear the resemblance!". Also, sorry if I sounded all uptight about how I said that, I really wasn't trying to be. I just re-read what I wrote and thought I maybe should have said "Yup" or just said it more casually. I like facts, but there are many I don't even know, so sorry if I sounded like I was trying to be a know-it-all. I just got excited.

No worries! You didn't sound like a know-it-all. I am one of those people who love facts, I say them quite often myself!

Oh, okay. Thanks, E-J-E :) . Like I said, I think this short is a classic, and I think it was many people's first Pixar short.

I like how he plays chess against himself--and ironically, I can't even learn how to play chess myself!

Yeah, it's a hard game to learn, IMO. Geri must have spent a lot of his life playing it!

Let's just say that trying to figure out the chess piece movements is the hardest part of the game.

Why all the threads are filled with spamming game-related websites.
