"Small Fry" is the second episode in the Toy Story Toons series. It was released theatrically with the Disney film The Muppets on November 23, 2011. It is Pixar Canada's second production.[1]

Plot

At a fast-food chicken restaurant called "Poultry Palace," a parody of Burger King or White Castle, Bonnie hates the buzzing electronic belt buckle that comes with her kid's meal. When she asks for the mini-Buzz Lightyear-themed toy on display, her mother is told the restaurant's supplies of them have run out, and that they are for display only. Inside the display, Mini-Buzz Lightyear complains they will never be played with, as they are just the display toys, to Mini-Zurg (who actually prefers to stay). Bonnie goes on to play in the ball pit with her own toys; when no one is looking, Mini-Buzz secretly climbs in. He pulls the real Buzz underneath the balls so that Bonnie ends up picking up Mini-Buzz when she leaves the restaurant. Once Mini-Buzz gets home, he explains to the other toys that the balls in the ball pit shrunk him, and proceeds to generally annoy the whole gang (save a gullible Rex) with his obvious ruse and antics.

Meanwhile, the real Buzz is stuck at the restaurant, trying to escape. He crawls through the venting system, but suddenly falls into a storage room where a "fast food-toy support group" is being held, led by Queen Neptuna, a warrior mermaid (voiced by Jane Lynch). The support group thinks Buzz is just another rejected toy and Neptuna obligates him to take part. Forced to engage in a role-playing group exercise, he finally escapes by using a grappling hook toy, much to the abandoned toys' dismay. Back at Bonnie's house, the gang restrains Mini-Buzz and forces him to give up the real Buzz's whereabouts. They begin devising a rescue plan when the real Buzz returns. Mini-Buzz is returned to the support group, but with Buzz now volunteering as his sponsor. In a post-credits scene, Mini-Zurg is left with the electronic belt buckle as his sole companion, much to his delight.

Voice cast

Non-speaking characters in the short include the Aliens, Bullseye, Buttercup, Dolly, Slinky Dog, Trixie, Mr. Potato Head, Beef Stewardess and Bozu the Ninja Clown. The credits say that Don Rickles reprises the role of Mr. Potato Head. However, this is wrong.

Trivia

  • BNL's logo appears on a vending machine.
  • Poultry Palace's food containers are "printed and packaged in Emeryville, CA, USA." Coincidentally, Pixar Animation Studios are based there.
  • When Buzz attempts to escape the restaurant, he manages to climb up a vent. This is very similar to Toy Story 2, when the gang tries to rescue Woody from Al McWhiggin.
  • The plot of the toys finding fast food toy versions of themselves was previously used in the Toy Story Treat, "Fast Food."
  • T-Bone's line: "Don't run away from your problems, brother," is a reference to famous professional wrestler Hulk Hogan.
  • This is the second time a Pixar short has been paired with a film that is not produced by Pixar, after Tokyo Mater with Bolt in 2008. It is the first time the film is a live-action one.
  • Small Fry was not included on The Muppets DVD and Blu-ray, possibly for an eventual compilation release.[2] However, it is available as a digital download on Amazon Instant Video and iTunes and was shown on TV. And it was included on Pixar Short Films Collection Volume 2.[3]
  • This is the second time Buzz is replaced by another version of extremely different personality. The first time was in Toy Story 2.
  • In Japan, this short was screened with Brave rather than The Muppets. The latter was released in cinemas there on May 19, 2012, and it is likely they removed the short from the theatrical release and found it was reasonable to put the short in front of a Pixar movie.
