List of Pixar Short Animations Shown Before Main Disney-Pixar Feature Films in Cinemas

Before Disney helped give it some feature-length film-producing clout for 1995’s Toy Story, the 3D animators of Pixar Studios have been making a number of short films, some of which have gone on to be award winners for pushing the envelope of computer animation; no wonder Disney eventually acquired them.

After they became the other production source of Disney animated feature-length films (alongside Walt Disney Animation Studios itself), Pixar continued making animation shorts, and started inserting them as extras in cinemas before the main feature. Here’s a list of Pixar shorts that have been paired with their Disney-Pixar big brothers.
