The master of lasers works his light-bending magic in Disneyland’s ElecTRONica. We love the part where he “picks up” the laser beams and twirls them like batons. How do you do that again?

One Man Disney Movie

Nick Pitera is a double threat. Not only is he a Pixar animator, he’s got the vocal chops to sing all the parts from his favorite Disney flicks, and pulls them off flawlessly in this entertaining video.

Premakes: Up!

Premakes: Up!

What if Walt Disney produced Up in the ’60s? In an alternate reality, this era saw the production of the high-flying adventure-comedy, starring Spencer Tracy and Kirk Douglas instead of Ed Asner.

Here’s a triple combo of amusement that’s making us laugh today: stick figure animation, the random absurdity of corporate rules and the earnest way Swoozie has rolled it all together in this video.

Toy Story 3: Meet Ken

Toy Story 3: Meet Ken

Might there be a touch of romance in the cards for Barbie as we meet the sophisticated Ken in the new trailer for Toy Story 3, due out in June? We think the blue leopard print shirt is a dealmaker.

Trailer #2: Toy Story 3

As promised, Toy Story 3’s second trailer is now up: while we get a better idea of the plot, we’re loving Pixar’s slightly risqué sense of humor–nice ascots and lincoln logs, anyone?

The Hidden Mickey isn’t that hidden with this Jam Home Made Secret Mickey Watch, but we like the way it’s integrated with the three chrono dials; note that the Mouse is Japan-only.
