The Simpsons really went all out last night, parodying Wallace & Gromit, Sylvain Chomet, award shows, Banksy, Randy Newman, and Pixar. In the episode entitled “Angry Dad: The Movie,” the official plot description was that “Bart’s film about an angry father quickly becomes a critic favorite, winning him several awards.” It is difficult to cut to specific moments where Pixar and its films are referenced, as there are many small moments throughout, so I would say you should watch the entire episode, which you can do by clicking here. If you want to start watching from the point of the first Pixar references, click here.
Pixar references include The Incredibles, Monsters, Inc., and WALL-E. Then, there was the Mixar short, Condiments, where food items come to life when humans are not around. Sounds familiar, eh?
Lisa calls Mixar “the digital Rembrandts of [her] generation.” High praise!
