Kevin Falk’s review published on Letterboxd:
When talking about Pixar Luxo Jr. really is the thing that started it all. It's funny the last short I reviewed very much was hurt by its simplicity while that's actually this one's greatest strength. In fact, I don't think this short really needed to be anything more then what it is. It's just as iconic today as it was all those years ago and really has shaped Pixar into becoming the studio they are today. One of their best for sure!
