On a high mountain plain lives a lamb with wool of such remarkable sheen that he breaks into high-steppin' dance. But there comes a day when he loses his lustrous coat and, along with it, his pride. It takes a wise jackalope - a horn-adorned rabbit - to teach the moping lamb that wooly or not, it's what's inside that'll help him rebound from life's troubles.
Pixar short I'd never heard of. A simple lesson for the kids but unusual in that its narrated in a country style song. 7/10.
I didn't really understand this one? It did nothing for me.
This is my least favourite. Probably because of the singing. Rest of it was cute, though.
It may seem a little ironic that my favorite Pixar film is preceded by my least favorite Pixar short. This short isn't bad as much as it's simply.....mediocre. It's folksy and cute and I guess that would be enough for another studio, when I was expecting mediocre, but it seems so disappointing for Pixar. Meh.
Right around this time, Pixar perfected the 3D look that's analogous to 1950s animation, and it has aged beautifully. A timeless bit of Americana.
