Pixar Review: 'For the Birds'

Hi everybody! Whenever I see a bird on a wire I think of a  certain Pixar project. It isn't the seagulls from Finding Nemo. It is actually this short which I'm going to review: For the Birds.

Plot:
When a flock of birds settle on a telephone wire one big crazy birds wants to be with them. The little birds aren't really opened to this idea, so they decide to peck on him until he falls off the wire. But then after they taken him off, they realize that he was so heavy that they will now sling-shot up. Then all the little birds become naked and the crazy bird laughs at the embarrassed birds.

The Pixar Legacy:
This short does have tons of references in tons of Pixar's projects from Cars to a possible shout-out in the recent Toy Story That Time Forgot. Pixar did put effort in this project and you can tell, so they cared about the project. So, with that this short does have a Pixar legacy. But does it deserve it?

Final Thoughts:
This short has always stuck with me and with good reason. This short has great humor, great storytelling, and of course awesome animation. You can tell this was an older short, but it is still a Pixar short classic in my eyes.

My Rating: 8/10

What do you think of For the Birds?
