Every day I walk blue-lit internet highways, go nowhere through Instagram rabbit holes, can’t remember why I’m scanning Wikipedia pages, my face turns clinically white with my favorite Google question: Do I have a UTI?”

I don’t have a UTI, at least not until I Google the question again tonight, but perhaps the reason for the daily fascination and embarrassment of being an internet researcher is that a popular Twitter thread asks users to report it. their best “useless” animation knowledge deleted by its creator. But once you get the internet bug, it’s hard to kill, and people continue to share animation knowledge that will quench even the most insatiable god thirst. Drink up, here are some of the best.

“In Toy storyWoody was supposed to look worried at first after Buzz Lightyear took off his helmet and Buzz started choking. said a famous tweet. “But during the scene, his model looked bored and apathetic, which was funnier, and they did that instead.” I think casual sociopathy is a good message to send to kids.

Likewise, it seems in “Invader Zim This ride was supposed to be scary, but when the animation team was working on it, the crew thought Peepee was dancing and added the music. And in it A proud family movie, Oscar Proud was meant to be a slow-motion running scene, but “this is what the animation looked like when it came back from overseas. The crew found it funny and kept it that way.”

But I’m really thirsty—I need more useless animation facts. These eight tweets about Shrek definitely help.

Oh, that’s a lot of facts. I think I’m ready to reintegrate into society now.

What are your favorite random animation facts?
