Lifted (2006)

Just 5 minutes long, this Pixar produced CG animation is the story of a young alien’s ‘license to abduct’ test… Of course the catch is that the operation console isn’t very userfriendly. Pity the teenage kid in the beam.

Released in conjunction with Ratatouille, but I’m sure you can find it on YouTube or *cough*, and you should try – this is quite possibly the best short Pixar has ever produced. Good enough, in fact, that I can even forgive them the Wilhelm dropped in at the end.

Spoilers: I’m pretty sure he fails the test.
