Pixar: 'Knick Knack'

'Knick Knack' is a short animation by Pixar. It was created in November 1989 and shown in many animation shows. John Lasseter created this short animation. He said it wasn't Disney coming in and telling them they had to do this, he just did it because he wanted to. 'Knick Knack' was later re-released in 2003 and in 2006 but Lasseter made a few changes to it to make it more family oriented.

I love this short animation because the storyline seems so simply but it is so entertaining. 'Knick Knack' is about a snowman in a snow globe trying to escape to join the other souvenir toys at a party. Here are some storyboards for the animation.
