I Love Disney Cartoon Shorts

Saturday, November 16, 2019
I love Disney cartoon shorts. I grew up watching House of Mouse and I would watch it every morning before I went to kindergarten and I loved it. Whenever a Pixar movie was coming out, I always look forward to the short that premiered before it. And then Disney started releasing shorts before some of their own animated movies, my favorite being Get a Horse, a throwback to the classic Mickey Mouse shorts, and I am a lover of the classics. And now that Disney+ has launched and they put up a bunch of Pixar and classic shorts, I have been devouring them.

I know it's cliche, but they're short and sweet. They are able to communicate the joke or the emotional arc that doesn't stretch the premise too thin to fill time. You can feel when a movie has run out of steam, and you check the run time and you think that they could've done with twenty or thirty fewer minutes.

I'm super stoked that one of Diisney+'s original programs is SparkShorts, where up and coming stories at Pixar can experiment and make their own shorts. And they were all cool. My favorite of the first four to be released was Kitbull. It's about the relationship between a stray kitten and a pitbull, and it has not dialogue, and was a great portrait of those two animals and how they reacted to each other.

It's not about quantity of content, but quality, and that's what these shorts are.
