Up! (WARNING: here there be spoilers)

(It’s only one…and it’s pretty minor…but I just didn’t want the blame…)


In the new Pixar movie “Up!” a scientist fits dogs with collars that allow them to talk.

I used this exact same idea in a pitch for an animated TV show a couple of years ago (which was recycled from a comic strip I was peddling in the mid 90s).

I in no way think that they ripped me off – I think it was just one of those things that happens.

In actuality, I can’t claim complete ownership anyway. I “borrowed” the idea from a “Man from Atlantis” comic from the 70’s.

    Well a lot of Pixar’s other ideas aren’t so original either, like Toy Story, Monsters Inc. I mean, they didn’t invent those ideas. However, something doesn’t have to be original to be good–how many variations of Romeo and Juliet have there been? It works the other way around too–original can suck. Hence, some of the made for TV movies that have been produced. Congratulations though, that’s a claim not too many people have :)

    I always like it to appear like I’ve ripped off the best. (And don’t get me started about the horror movie I made in the early 90s and the TV show from a couple of years ago.)
