Walt Disney Video has released Pixar's early animations in "Tiny Toy Stories" a twenty minute video with 5 cartoons. The collection includes The Adventures of Andre and Wally B., Luxo Jr. (1986 Oscar nomination, Best Animated Short Film), Red's Dream, Tin Toy (1988 Academy Award-winner, Best Animated Film) and Knick Knack.

  1. In Tiny Toy Stories, there is a wall clock with Wally (assuming he's not Andre B. :) similar to the Mickey Mouse wall clocks in Red's Dream. It's in the upper left quadrant at one of the very beginning scenes.

  6. In the Tiny Toons cartoon where Babs is looking for the "lost" character Honey, she asks Hampton "What do you know about Honey?" His reply was: "I know bees make it and Winnie-the-Pooh has a problem with it."

    REPORTED:Internet Movie Database
    "The Tiny Toon Adventure script writer Sheri Stoner was used as the model for Ariel." In the Tiny Toons video movie, "How I Spent My Summer Vacation", co-written by Stoner, there is a Little Mermaid reference. When Babs Bunny falls into the river, she sees a group of fish, a crab and a red haired young mermaid who sing "Beneath the ocean, beneath the ocean/We cause big commotion beneath the ocean." to which Babs replys "Oops, wrong cartoon."
    CONFIRMED: Jonathan 10 MAR 97
    Sheri Stoner, who worked on "Stephen Spielburg presents Tiny Toon Adventures" was the model for Ariel. In the credits of each Tiny Toons episode, there is a hidden joke. One was "Model for Mermaid: Sheri Stoner." That must be a reference. Another episode had a very close parody of "Kiss the Girl" with Babs Bunny as Ariel. I think the song in the back was "It's in his Kiss."
