Partly Cloudy (Short 2009). 6m | G

“As we all know, babies of all types are delivered by storks, which collect them from their point of creation (in the clouds) and carry them in bundles to the ground. Of course you have you r cute creatures like puppies and kittens, but one stork works with a slightly less fun cloud where the creatures tend to be of a more u0026quot;jaggedu0026quot; nature. Over time the working conditions that the stork has to endure appears to put a strain of the working relationship.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eThis short preceded Up in the cinemas and continues Pixaru0026#39;s tradition of having a supporting short film for their releases (a tradition that Iu0026#39;m all in favour of and still maintain that more u0026quot;live actionu0026quot; releases should do it too). This slot has seen some very good animated short films and it must be said that Partly Cloudy is not really one of the better ones that they have done. Of course, as with nearly all things Pixar, one of their outputs being slightly below their normal standard still means that it is very good by normal standards, and so it is with Partly Cloudy.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eIn terms of content it is a relatively straightforward short with physical comedy providing all of the four or five laughs it has. This is not a complaint though because it is only a short film and as such it does do the job of being amusing by delivering these solid laughs in a short time. Of greater note that the specific laughs is the concept itself. The stork aspect is an old one but the whole idea is well brought to life by the design and the animation and it was this spirit of invention and creativity behind the laughs that I enjoyed.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eNot Pixaru0026#39;s strongest moment in terms of their feature-supporting short films and a bit simple in terms of substance but the design and concept is imaginative and generally it is still funny and enjoyable with physical comedy sight gags.”
