I paid $1.99 to watch the “SD” version of this short (to be honest, it looked HiDef, I am sure I did not miss anything by SD).

My Thoughts During The Short:
- I hate bullies.
- Now I feel bad for the bully.
- Alex: “You expected a Pixar short about bullying to NOT get dark at some point?”
- Repeated Awwwwwws
- It is Pixar. Pixar has yet to disappoint me. I love it for it’s fluffy flu flu
- Do we judge on the fact that this is great for kids?
Per NPR: Lou You knew Pixar was going to be on this list somewhere. In Lou, a playground’s lost-and-found box is inhabited by a benevolent spirit who tries to return all the kids’ toys. “Lou” does battle with a local bully who looks and acts a lot like Toy Story‘s Sid, but who might secretly have a heart of gold. Everyone’s favorite animation studio might be spinning its wheels a bit on this one, but the bright colors and inventive character design (tennis balls for eyes, a sweatshirt for a body, and a form that morphs depending on whatever the kids happen to lose) still make this a charmer.
