Now that Toy Story 3 has continued Pixar’s storied run of making you weep in public theaters, you may want to cast an eye towards some of their earlier works. Luckily, all those shorts that come bundled with their movies are up on iTunes, and they’re just short enough for the tail end of a lunch break. (They’ll set you back a couple bucks, but that shouldn’t put too much of a dent in your whimsy budget.) We’ve got a soft spot for “Luxo Jr.” in particular, since it’s early enough to be historic, gives a little backstory on that logo, and you won’t have seen it before any features. And, as luck would have it, it’s already found its way to YouTube.
