Not From Pixar
If you have five minutes to spare, give this animated short–Off His Rockers–a look. It’s cute and looks like it COULD be an early Pixar product … but it’s not. According to my friend taliabriscoe, it was made by someone at Disney-MGM as a side project and wound up being shown with the theatrical release of Honey, I Blew Up The Kid (but not included on the DVD release).
It’s a terrific cartoon … a great early mix of computer and traditional animation, and shows what Disney COULD have achieved on their own if they’d let their visionaries have the sort of free reign that Pixar gave to theirs.
Oh, and the music is by Bruce Broughton, the guy who wrote the score for Silverado. How cool is THAT?!?
