Off His Rockers is a 1992 Disney animated short film directed by Barry Cook (who would later go on to co-direct Mulan). It was originally released with Honey, I Blew Up the Kid (and appears on the LaserDisc release of the aforementioned film). This short was an experiment in having traditionally animated and computer-generated characters share the same environment, which would be later utilized in Aladdin.


The story of an old fashioned rocking horse who tries to regain the affection of a boy whose attention has turned to video games.



  • Until the advent of YouTube, the home video availability of this short film was rare as it only appeared on the LaserDisc release of the aforementioned film it was paired with (Honey, I Blew Up the Kid), and never appeared on VHS or DVD releases of Disney animated short film compilations.
  • The boy in this short would make a brief cameo (as part of a "Wanted" poster) in the Roger Rabbit short, Trail Mix-Up, which was released the following year in 1993 and was also directed by Barry Cook.
