Short Movie Review: Knick Knack

Knick Knack Trailer

Knick Knack Summary

On a bookshelf filled with vacation-themed souvenirs, a snowman named Knick (who is the cousin of Frosty the Snowman, according to the audio commentary), who resides in a Nome, Alaska snow globe, wants to reach a “Sunny Miami” knick-knack that shows a pretty blonde girl in a blue bikini. Knick tries several unsuccessful methods to break out of the globe, which includes ramming the glass with the snow globe’s igloo backdrop, using his carrot nose and a hammer on the glass, using a jackhammer (which causes his facial features to fall off), trying to cut the glass using a blowtorch and an igniter, and detonating TNT explosives. The latter causes the globe to fall over the edge. Knick notices an emergency exit in the base and frees himself just before he and the globe fall into a fishbowl. Here Knick sees a pretty mermaid souvenir from “Sunny Atlantis” and runs toward her, but before he can reach her, the globe settles to the bottom and traps him again, much to his annoyance.

Knick Knack Review

Rating: 5 out of 5.

This 3 minute short is cute, full of laughter and Easter eggs. I know it is crazy that even the shorts have Easter eggs. Knick Knack is also reference in several Pixar films like the Toy Story films.

Did you know you can pre order The Disney Pixar Connection Volume 2: Straight – to – Video book? There are Easter egg hints like crazy in there.
