Boundin' is a 2003 Pixar short film. It was written and directed by Bud Luckey.


In the West lives a lamb whose pride and joy is his wool. When a man comes and shears him, the lamb becomes depressed. It takes a Jackalope to teach him to bounce back from life's troubles.


  • This is the first theatrical short to have dialogue. To date, this and Lava are the only Pixar shorts to feature dialogue that aren't based on a pre-existing property. Indeed, the man talking on the radio in Day & Night is a recording of a speech by Dr. Wayne Dyer.[1]
  • Bud Luckey, who performed all the voices, played Rick Dicker in The Incredibles. He also worked on Sesame Street as the Alligator King in an animated short.
  • In the first draft, Rick Dicker was going to sit on a chair and tell the story.
  • The car that the man drives is Stanley from Cars. There is a statue of that car in the film.
  • The hand that grabs the sheep belongs to the dentist from Finding Nemo.
  • Also, the fish seen in this short are based on Gurgle.
  • The Cars DVD and Blu-Ray contain a version of Boundin' with Mater as the Jackalope and Lightning McQueen as the lamb. Guido is also seen briefly as six groundhogs.
