You’ll have to go see the new Muppets movie to see it in its entirety (not that you need another reason) but here’s a first look at Pixar’s new Toy Story short Small Fry which finally gives us a look at what life is like for those crappy and quickly forgotten fast-food toys.
In the short Buzz Lightyear is kidnapped by a smaller, happy meal version of himself who yearns to be played with like a real toy, escaping the fate of being discarded and forgotten once a child’s burger and fries are done. And while he tries to take Buzz’s place, the space ranger is trapped at the restaurant, forced to deal with a support group for fast food toys. Including my new favourite character T-Bone, based on McDonald’s awesome Changeables.
Tim Allen, Tom Hanks, Joan Cusack and of course John Ratzenberger all lend their voices to the short, and I’m hoping McDonald’s has a tie-in with Happy Meal versions of all the Happy Meal toys. Collect them all! [YouTube via IWatchStuff]
