Small Fry is a 2011 Pixar computer animated short directed by Angus MacLane. It was released in theaters along with The Muppets (not the actual Muppets, but the latest movie version) on November 23, 2011.
This second short in the Toy Story Toons series was based on the characters from the Toy Story feature films. The story involves Buzz Lightyear getting trapped at a fast food restaurant where there is a support group for discarded kid’s meal toys. Man, being a toy is tough! A kids’ meal toy version of Buzz takes his place and hilarity ensues!
I’ve lost count of how many versions of Buzz Lightyear I own. My wife says ‘Too Many!’ and I say ‘Not enough!’ so… when I saw these little guys, I just had to add them to my collection:
In Toy Story 2 we learned that Emperor Zurg was the father of Buzz Lightyear (in a Star Wars homage) and so I thought I would display these two fellows in a father-son activity. Okay, I know Papa Zurg should be pulling Wee Buzz, but this configuration just looked way cuter!
Kid’s Meal Buzz looks much like his larger doppelganger, if not a little more crazed!
Don’t call Kid’s Meal Zurg cute. No seriously: Don’t! His gun works.
At just around two and half inches in height, these little fellows are still posed for action!
The last picture in this post just goes to show that boys will be boys:
Well, a rivalry is a rivalry, and Kid’s Meal Buzz just couldn’t resist the urge to defeat the evil (if not cute) Kid’s Meal Zurg!
The Disney Wiki has a nice article on the Short itself with many stills. It’s worth a look!
But if you’re in the mood for more spacey fun, why not check out the Original Space Ranger – Rocky Jones and stick around the blog for awhile? We’d enjoy your company!
