Us Pixar fans spend a lot of time talking about Pixar Moments that hit us emotionally because of course, Pixar is really good at this. But they're also really good at making us laugh. I'm curious to hear some of your thoughts on the scenes/lines/gags in Pixar movies that really made you laugh hard, and still get you every time.

There are two moments that come immediately to mind and still crack me up every time:

1) Screamcan design class in Monsters University. After Mike and Sully have been switched out of the Scaring Program after failing the first semester. Professor Brandywire says, in a monotone, deadpan delivery: "Some say that a career as a scream can designer is boring, unchallenging, a waste of a monster's potential." PAUSE "Open your text books to chapter 3...". 

2) The "HONEY, where is my supersuit?!" banter between Frozone and his wife in The Incredibles still cracks me up every time. I think the same could be said for this scene too.

One thing I have observed that both of these moments have in common is that they both support the emotional steaks in the context of their movie. I think a lot of comedic relief gags in movies seem to try and "give audiences a break" from the heavy emotional stuff going on. These scenes on the other hand, actually further drive in what the characters are going through while giving us the chance to laugh. In MU, we get to feel the dissapointment and anger that Mike and Sully are dealing with and in The Incredibles just as the movie is getting to it's nailbitting Climax, we feel anxious and frustrated along with Frozone as he can't find his Supersuit and his wife won't tell him where it is.

What Pixar Moments crack you up the most?

Good moments!! As for me, these are the moments that come to mind. 

When Remy first uses Linguini as a puppet and smashes the apartment window with a frying pan because he flipped the pancake too hard. 

Monsters University has some of the best comedic timing, so any punchline in that movie cracked me up. 

"Put that thing back where it came from or so help me" 

Buzz drunk on tea in the first Toy Story film. "MY name is MS. NEZBIT!"

Spanish Buzz in Toy Story 3

The Sigourney Weaver gag in Finding Dory 

Something that I love about Pixar is that they seem to choose heart over laughs (as opposed to Dreamworks) but once they do deliver with gags, they are clever, well-written, and advance the plot. They aren't useless farting jokes that disrespect kid's minds (Dreamworks)

Pixar Post - T.J.
I saw this post originally in December and thought, "I really need to think on this". Well, I ended up forgetting, so I'm going to just list out a few of the things that strike me when first thinking about them.
  • Anything involving Tuck and Roll from A Bug's Life. I love the vocal work, uni-brow and antics!
  • The carts smashing into WALL-E while trying to hide/impress Eve.
  • Spanish Buzz! I love that whole scene where Buzz's head twitches and Rex says, "It's not my fault"
  • Edna Mode's note of "And guest" when unlocking her secret room and the cameras focus in on Mrs. Incredible.
  • The time when Woody first opens Buzz's helmet and Buzz falls to the ground gasping for air...it's all about the look on Woody's face and the plastic ratchet sounds used that really sell this one for me.
  • I love the scene when Chef Skinner is freaking out to his lawyer about Linguini "knowing something". I love the way he gesticulates while snapping his fingers. (Clip below). I crack up at him losing it every time.



Those are just a few of the moments I thought off the top of my head - so many great ones though!

-"I CAN'T GO BACK TO JAIL!"


"I have an extra toe! Heh... not with me, of course."

"Of all the sewers on campus, this one has always been my favourite."

"Art, you've been here before?"

'I have a LIFE, outside of the HOUSE, you know!"

---

"I wanna touch 'em!"

Art just has that right level of randomness and surreality that I like!

"Some say that a career as a scream can designer is boring. Unchallenging. A waste of a monster's potential. *inhale* Open your text books to chapter three."

Dug's general demeanour in UP, especially his constantly happy, oblivious reaction to Kevin's attacks. The guys at Pixar really got the dog mannerisms - especially labrador/retriever tics - down to a tee.

"Jessie's right, Woody. She was wrong!"

The health inspector in Ratatouille, opening the door to the kitchen. It's crammed with rats, and they all just freeze and stare at eachother...

"And this is the Buzz Lightyear aisle. Back in 1995, short-sighted retailers did not order enough dolls to meet demand!"

"My children's children will walk down the street and people will point and says 'Look! There goes the spawn of Flik, the loser!'."

This ant and his angry face:

M-O shaking after the air lock closes.

"Somebody STOLE THE SUN!"

There's also a pretty funny moment in the commentary where they point out that, when Buzz is pushing the crate off the desk, since we see Buzz completely stretch out pretty early he shouldn't be able to move anymore after that. "He's two feet from the wall, he's still going!"

What are you talking about? Pixar uses toilet humor. I made a list of when it happens then left it on a computer, dould you like me to go get it? It was getting pretty long and featured such gems as the poo poo platter and Spot peeing. And don't suddenly try and backtrack and say "Well I meant LESS" cause that's not what you said. Also, if we're instantly counting everything that isn't toilet humor as clever then the word's kind of losing all meaning (Look, they're twins, but complete opposites! Hahaha, it's so cliche there's an entire Disney Channel sitcom centered around it!).

Pixar has utilized Toilet Humor but even then, the humor is very well written. The poo poo platter is a perfect example because: 
1) It is a gag that falls in the context of the world.
2) It is taking something that we believe is disturbing about flies and turns into a gag by exemplifying the "poop" in their context.
3) It establishes this bug world further to were there is a bar-like place were they have different diverse foods that appeal to different bugs. The Poo Poo Platter was a great idea to flesh out the universe, the joke was written around the scene, sometimes what other kids' films would do is write the scene around the joke. 

There are kids films were two characters are having a dispute or whatever the circumstance may be, and one of them just farts, completely out of context. I'm not saying that it is wrong to use this kind of humor. l'm just simply expressing that I like more substance in gags. Any idiot can write "Stuart falls unexpectedly" into a screenplay. I like gags that are in context to what is happening in the scene, and are clever and well written.

Oh crud. Hey, if that post seemed rude, I'm sorry, I was still working on it and was going to remove parts and reword things (kind of pointless now since it's quoted) but my school's wifi started having a conniption fit and I guess it posted it without me actually doing so and I didn't notice (hence the lack of a picture where there should've been one and how squished everything was). 

I'll actually respond to that post in another post (I fuss over my wording and don't respond quickly, like, ever), just want to get that out now.

Okay, actual response now (I would've done it sooner, but I've been having computer trouble, and my usual tactic of leaving posts to sit for weeks on end didn't sit well with it). 


I could make similar claims for Dreamworks' toilet humor. I could claim the joke with the dragon costume in Kung Fu Panda 2 relies on the Chinese setting and is a "clever" way to hide violence in the PG movie plus getting rid of notable amounts of enemies with one gag, or that the characters shooting out of the backside of the Sphinx in Peabody and Sherman requies the Egypt setting and helps establish the film's world as one similar to our world but wackier (where the Egyptians would build such an exit) plus is smoothly integrating a joke into the escape, or that the octopus being in a tank hooked up to the toilets in Penguins of Madagascar relies on the focus on zoo animals and helps establish just how little people cared about him, or that the toilet humor in the Boss Baby trailers rely on the talking baby premise and play into the humiliation factor from the baby trying to act dignified, and just keep going on like that.

It's easy to make something sound clever when you're trying.

Of course, I would never ACTUALLY say any of that, because I hate toilet humor in general( And I do want to make that clear, I'm not defending Dreamworks' use of the stuff, it sucks whenever any company uses it), but my point. 

In my experience, "jokes" that are just "character farts out of nowhere and there's no followup" or similar are rare, and definitely don't pop up enough in Dreamworks' films enough to denounce the company for them (I have, admittedly, never seen, nor do I ever plan to see, Shrek 3, Shrek 4, Bee Movie, or Shark Tale, but even if every joke in there is just a character farting that'd still be denouncing a company that's make roughly 30 films based on four).
