You're a history major? That's awesome. I have a passion for history. And I agree, I enjoy learning how animals have influenced history.

Yeah, I think it's cool, but it is a lot of wrok.

But back on the subject, anyone know what was said in the disclaimer? I tried to listen to it and read it so many times, but the print is always either too fast, or too jumbled up./

I don't know if there's really a surefire way of hearing the entire thing. I just listen/read as much as possible before it's cut off entirely.

That's what I did, too. But I think how it becomes impossible to read is the point.

The short is very funny and informative! (I'd like to show it to my mom: she hates rats, but likes Remy 8D ) Narrators' reaction to the disclaimer is priceless. I also liked P.T.Flea's cameo :)

hat was a funny part in the short. When they said the word flea, I didn't expect for PT to make a cameo, but I am glad he did.

I laughed and was amazed through this entire short. But I must say, the Beatles reference made me so happy I nearly cried.

The Beatles reference nearly made you cry? aww :) It nearly made me fall off the couch I was so shocked. I was waiting for the Beatles to come into a Pixar project somehow and I too was really happy to see that

It made me really happy too! I knew somehow Beatles would be referenced in a Pixar project, as lennonluvr9 stated. It was inevitable. :D And the way everyone in the short was caricatured looked really neat. Who was the art designer, again?

I loved this short. It was great to see hand-drawn animation in a Pixar film. The P.T Flea reference was very funny.
