The Adventures Of André And Wally B: Disney+ Talk

While Pixar are now seen as the juggernaut of CGI animation, it all had to start something. In this case, it started in 1984 with a 1 minute short called ‘André and Wally B.’ The short revolves around a character who wakes up from a nap and is confronted by a bee. Not wanting to be stung, André tricks the bee and runs away, only to be stung anyway.

Directed by Alvy Ray Smith, this was not so much a short film as an experiment to see what new company, Pixar, could be capable of. At the time of making this, this was the first time that CGI animation was used solely for a short film and didn’t rely on live action to carry it through to the ending.

In that regard, ‘André and Wally B.’ is a technical achievement, even if does looks extremely outdated by today’s standards. The animation also has to be taken into consideration; the first fully CGI animated TV show ‘Reboot’ wouldn’t be released onto TV until 1994, and ‘Jurassic Park’ and ‘Titantic’ would be released around 10 years after the Pixar short.

Overall, ‘The Adventures Of André and Wally B.’ was a sign of what was the future of animation will be. While it’s considered very outdated by today’s standards, it’s still an important short to watch, even from a study point.
