All Episodes

PP06 – The Incredibles (2004)

So far, we’ve met Pixar characters who are lovable, resourceful, adventurous, caring, and determined; but this week, we’re saying hello to a cast that’s truly incredible. Your best Pals are stretching, lifting, speeding, and disappearing our way through our first superhero film, and you better believe we’re leaving our capes at home as we take on the evil Syndrome alongside…you guessed it!…The Incredibles.

PP05 – Finding Nemo (2003)

We all get a little lost sometimes – but it’s a rare clownfish whose dad travels hundreds of miles, battling sharks and traversing a jellyfish forest, with only one mission: just keep swimming, just keep swimming…until he finds his son. With the help of a plucky Blue Tang and a tank full of finned friends, Finding Nemo and the Pixar Pals will remind even the most ichthyophobic among us that fish are friends, not food.

PP04 – Monsters, Inc. (2001)

What if the monsters under your bed really did exist – but they were more scared of you than you were of them? The Pixar Pals are swinging the closet door wide open and facing some high-scoring scarers as we explore the world of Monsters, Inc., and all the slimy, scaly, and shaggy beasts it has to offer – including an outsider who isn’t afraid to say “Boo!”

PP03 – Toy Story 2 (1999)

It seems the world couldn’t get enough of Woody, Buzz and the gang, so for their third feature, Pixar gave the people what they wanted and delivered their first sequel: Toy Story 2. The Pixar Pals are ready for this roundup, featuring a mix of fresh and familiar faces, unexpected adventures, hilarious hijinks, and what is to become a signature move for the studio: an emotional gut-punch of a scene that’ll have you reaching for the Kleenex (and your favourite childhood toy).

PP02 – A Bugs Life (1998)

It’s tough to be a bug, and even tougher when you’re at the bottom of the food chain like Flik and the other inhabitants of Ant Island. But the Pixar Pals are about to find out what happens when a bully pushes a little ant with big ideas too far…and a classic mix-up leads to a motley crew of new friends showing him exactly what he’s capable of. You may not walk away a lover of insects, but A Bug’s Life will at least having you thinking twice before taking a magnifying glass to the sidewalk on a sunny day.

PP01 – Toy Story (1995)

Reach for the sky, cowboys and space rangers – the Pixar Pals (AKA the artists formerly known as the Disney Dummies) are falling with style as they launch into a new series of animated classics! And they’re pulling one heck of a snake out of their boot with episode one – Toy Story! Join Buzz, Woody and all of Andy’s toys as we witness how friendship can take us to infinity…and beyond!
