The short mirrors the style of many classic, Walt Disney animated films that began the iconic status of characters like Micky Mouse himself.
The short, in itself, operate as an homage to both classic Walt Disney animation that birthed the legacy of Disney films, and the Monsters Inc. characters that have been a part of our lives for the past 20 years.
