This month, Chronicle Books releases The Art of Pixar Short Films which goes behind the scenes of the small films that helped Pixar become an animation fan favorite. Many look forward to seeing these shorts when they accompany Pixar’s feature-length films in the theaters.

Author Amid Amidi, also author of Cartoon Modern and co-founder of Cartoon Brew, has written up a blog post over at Chronicle Books Blog with behind the scenes trivia that he discovered while writing the book. When you’re done with the list, enter their contest to win a copy of the book and a copy of the Disney DVD, Pixar Short Films Collection, Vol. 1.
