With some short film successes under their belts, Pixar's animation team decided to have some simple fun. Taking inspiration from Chuck Jones and Tex Avery, director John Lasseter created a four-minute comedy about a snowman stuck in a snow globe desperately trying to join his fellow dust collectors, who are all enjoying a party. While it was much lauded in its day, the film doesn't really do much for me mostly because the humor is all pure slapstick, and not without a teeny whiff of sexism.
