The year was 1984: The first Apple Macintosh went on sale, Terms of Endearment won Best Picture, Ghost Busters was the year's top grossing film ... and a few guys over in the Graphics Group at Lucasfilm were about to change the world of animation forever. While The Adventures of André and Wally B. is not technically the first Pixar short film, it was animated by John Lasseter and it featured the first use of motion blur in CG animation. And if you thought the folks at Pixar forgot about this lost piece of coolness, think again: During the end credit montage in Wall-E, a small Wally B. can be spotted flying across the screen. Watching the video above is a lot of fun, if only to see how far we've come in the past 24 years since this short first freaked people out over at Lucasfilm. Also, if you like what you see above and are interested in watching more Pixar shorts, pick up the Pixar Short Films Collection, Volume I. It's a blast. Enjoy.
Oh, and speaking of: What did you all think of Presto?
