Toy Story: Small Fry First Look

Toy Story: Small Fry is a new animated short airing in front of The Muppets. USA Today has a few choice quotes from writer-director Angus MacLane, the man who previously created Pixar’s magical short, Presto, and the Wall-E spin-off, Burn-E. Here’s some of what he said: "It’s like the Prince and the Pauper tale for toys. Except one of them happens to be three inches tall. [Happy Meal] toys’ existence is about being really popular before the meal and then being totally forgotten about, and sometimes they don’t even get played with. There’s something funny about having the action hero have to deal with something very mundane like escaping from an awkward social situation."  
     The seven minute toon features a host of regular voices, plus semi-legendary animation story guy, animator and director Teddy Newton as the mini-Buzz and Jane Lynch has a role too, though I think it be more fun to not tell you what it is.
     Small Fry is the second of three Toy Story Shorts in the first planned wave. The first of course aired in front of Cars 2, and no word yet on when the third one will appear.
