Animation Timeline: Entry 17 - Luxo Jr. (1986)

Luxo Jr. is the first ever animated short created by Pixar animation studios, the animation short was created in 1986 by John Lasseter, and today is known as the 'steam boat willie' of computer animation.

Luxo Jr. features a lamp which comes to life through the movement of the lamp head, which takes place as a human head, which then interacts with a child lamp and a bouncy ball. What makes this animation so successful and memorable is the fact that Pixar had brought an inanimate object to life and gave it a likable story and meaning.
