“Toy Story” short “Small Fry” coming with “The Muppets”


By Sean O’Connell
Hollywoodnews.com: When “The Muppets” secret screened at the Savannah Film Festival last weekend, I left the theater on such a nostalgic high that I’d completely forgotten about the original “Toy Story” short that preceded the movie. That’s not a dig on the clever short, but more another compliment lobbed in the direction of James Bobin’s winning “Muppets” feature.

Anyway, this morning, we’re getting an early peek at the Pixar short, titled “Small Fry,” via USA Today. Here’s the scoop.

This one see Buzz Lightyear left behind at a fast food joint after a Happy Meal version of the space ranger decides he’d like to go home with Bonnie instead. Of course, Woody and the rest of the “Toy Story” toys aren’t fooled. Meanwhile, back at the eatery, Buzz interacts with a therapy group of discarded fast-food toys (the most inventive part of the new short) as he tries to figure out how to get back to Bonnie’s house.

It’s sweet. It has the emotional threads of a “Toy Story” film, and goes in a totally different direction from “Hawaiian Vacation” (which preceded “Cars 2”).

You’ll be able to see “Small Fry” ahead of “The Muppets” when it opens in theaters on Nov. 23.
