BURN-E is also the title character of a parallel spin-off short from the film. This short was produced at the same time as the movie, and was directed by the feature film's lead animator, Angus MacLane (who also supplied BURN-E's voice). The short is included as a bonus feature on the DVD and Blu-ray releases of WALL-E and has since been aired on TV as well. BURN-E features music composed and conducted by J.A.C. Redford, who was also the orchestrator on WALL-E.
