Pixar's Made in Point Richmond DVD Rarities (lost various Pixar footage; 1986-2000)
|The Made in Point Richmond DVD.|
In 2001, some time after completing For the Birds, Pixar made an employee exclusive DVD called Made in Point Richmond of course containing a selection of non-movie content from their days where they were based in the northern San Francisco Bay Area community of Point Richmond, California; like their television work, short work, F/X work and party videos. What makes this DVD interesting is not only its collection of Pixar rarities otherwise lost or in inferior quality that are covered on this Wiki elsewhere (most of their commercial division work, Blowin' in the Wind and Jessie Patsy Montana Entertainer Award Acceptance Speech), but rarities possibly otherwise unknown about if it weren't for their inclusion on the DVD.
Rare DVD Contents
As mentioned, there are several listed Pixar rarities that we possibly only know of because of their listing in this DVD. These are...
-Sesame Street Luxo, Jr. Shorts (available on Pixar Short Films Collection Volume 1, but I've heard something possibly false about an original narrative track not being included on that):
-"Surprise" -"Light and Heavy" -"Up and Down" -"Front and Back"
-Ponkikies "Flik" (the first time Pixar worked with Ponkikies, later doing animation for them with Toy Story 2 and Monsters, Inc. characters)
-Toy Story 2 "On-Set Interview 1" or "On-Set Interview 2" (One Toy Story 2 interview is available, but not a second one to my knowledge)
-Unknown ABC Toy Story 2 animations, including (presumably) crossovers with Monday Night Football, Good Morning America, The View, The Drew Carey Show and Who Wants to be a Millionaire? among others:
-ABC "Monday Night Football" -ABC "Sportscaster" -ABC "Good Morning America" -ABC "Happy Thanksgiving" -ABC "Holiday Buzz" -ABC "Aliens Sing" -ABC "Woody New Year" -ABC "Aliens Daytime" -ABC "Aliens Nighttime" -ABC "Remote Daytime" -ABC "Remote Nighttime" -ABC "Rex :05" -ABC "Rex :10" -ABC "Soap Opera" -ABC "Aliens" (The View) -ABC "Aliens" (Drew Carey Show) -ABC "Aliens" (Millionaire Show)
-Christmas 1986 -Christmas 1987 -Christmas 1988 -Christmas 1989 -Christmas 1990 -Christmas 1991 -Christmas 1992 -Christmas 1993 -Christmas 1994 -A Bug's Life Pre-Show Slides -Toy Story 2 Wrap Party
In addition, there's also found, readily available media that the DVD presumably has in higher, DVD quality than what's available to the public...
-Knick Knack (presumably the uncensored version)
-68th Academy Awards Presentation (the first time Buzz and Woody appeared at the Oscars)
-It's Tough to be a Bug (?)
-Buzz Ride (?; presumably the animatronic face animation on Buzz in Buzz Lightyear's Space Ranger Spin)
-Buzz Lightyear of Star Command "TV Title 1" to "TV Title 7" (?)
