  • One Man Band (2006) Tells the tale of a peasant girl who encounters two competing street performers who'd prefer the coin find its way into their tip jars. As the two one-man bands' rivalry crescendos, the two overly eager musicians vie to win the little girl's attention (nominated for Oscar® 2006)

  • Jack-Jack Attack (2005) Baby Jack-Jack is thought to be normal, not having any super-powers like his parents (The Incredibles’ Mr. and Mrs. Parr) or siblings. But when an outsider is hired to watch him, Jack-Jack shows his true potential

  • Boundin’ (2004) A sheep proudly danced in his lush wool until he had his first sheering which left him humiliated until a jackalope passes by and shows the forlornly shorn sheep woolly or not, its what’s inside that will make him rebound from life’s troubles (nominated for an Oscar® 2004)

  • Mike’s New Car (2002) Mike is obsessed with his new six-wheel drive car, and insists on showing it off to his pal Sulley.

  • For the Birds (2001) A group of small birds perch together on a telephone wire.

  • Geri’s Game (1997) The title character, Geri plays a game of chess against himself, 'becoming' each of the players in turn by moving to the other side of the chessboard and taking his glasses on and off.

  • The Adventures of Andre & Wally B (1984) André is awakened in a forest by a pesky bee named Wally B. When André points in a different direction, the bee looks away and André gets his chance to run away. Wally chases André and eventually catches him, reappearing with a bent stinger.
