Regarding “Knick Knack,” the version available on iTunes is, to my disappointment, the toned down version shown before Finding Nemo. In the original version, the bikini girl and mermaid both had HUMONGOUS breasts. The joke was lost in the new version, it’s not nearly as funny.

That’s a shame. It’s still my favorite Pixar short but when I first saw it before Nemo I felt a little…. deflated. smile

The funny thing is that Knick Knack (as well as most of the other Pixar shorts) was available from the Pixar website for free download some years ago. But now it links to the iTMS ...

Oh great! Now we all can feel good about buying/owning our iPods because they made it onto Oprah’s list of favorite things! F U C K Oprah! And F U C K the moderators of this board for thinking that they can actually stop me from posting what I want to post. You guys are trying to wage a war YOU CANNOT WIN! Deal with it!
