Pixar has a way to get into the heart of its audience and fill them with delightful insights and some occasional seriousness about the theme. Maybe because of the liberty they enjoy from the unending possibilities of animations or maybe its just that they are simply awesome! Anyway, let’s head into the list of top Pixar shorts ever that you should definitely check out as soon as possible. You can find most of these by a simple search on YouTube. You can watch many of these best Pixar short films on Netflix, YouTube, Hulu or Amazon Prime.
14. Lifted (2007)
Lifted was played along with ‘Ratatouille’ when it was released. Made by the Oscar-nominated sound designer Gary Rydstrom, this short film is based on an extraordinary premise of an alien abductor learning to abduct a sleeping human child in the dead of night and inevitably faltering to do so. The film is super fun with pure slapstick humor but the heartwarming feeling that usually exudes from Pixar films are missing a bit here.

13. Lou (2017)
The entrant from 2017 in the list is ‘Lou’. It was paired with last year’s ‘Cars 3’. Based on another bonkers of a plot, this short film tells the story of an elemental creature made from a schoolyard’s ‘lost and found’ box that comes into life when a bully starts torturing other kids. The physicality of the monster is amazingly caricaturist and the movements are marvelous. The film’s sweetness lies in the way it treats the universal theme of bullying and it also teaches a valuable lesson to the kid without holding any prejudice against him.

12. Bao (2018)
Pixar and their weirdly lovable premises. ‘Bao’ was screened along with this year’s immensely successful ‘Incredibles 2’. ‘Bow’ deserves a great deal of attention because of the fact that this is the first project written and directed by a woman, Domee Shi. So we see a bit more diverse culture than we are used to from Pixar, and that’s a good thing. It tells the story of an old Chinese woman who makes dumplings and one fine morning one of her dumplings has turned into a living creature. What happens next is the joys and trials surrounding parenthood and Pixar also plays with the idea of anthropomorphism in a different way than expected.
