"Partysaurus Rex" is the third and final episode in the Toy Story Toons series. The short was released with the theatrical 3D release of Finding Nemo.[1] It is the fourth Pixar Canada production.[2] The short has been rated G by the MPAA.[3]


Rex disrupts the other toys blowing soap bubbles, worried they may ruin Bonnie's house. He is chastised by the other toys, with Mr. Potato Head calling him "Partypooper Rex." The other toys sense Bonnie approaching, and scatter, leaving Rex alone when she enters. She takes him to play with while she takes a bath. Rex enjoys being played with the other bath toys, but soon Bonnie's mother comes to turn off the bath and take her out. Once alone, the bath toys wish they could continue to have fun, but none of them have arms (except Rex) and can only function if afloat in the water. Rex initially thinks drawing a new bath is a bad idea, but after recalling Mr. Potato Head's insult, he asserts he is "Partysaurus Rex" and helps the bath toys to start a new bath.

The toys quickly start to sing and dance in a rave-like fashion, aided by a carefree Rex throwing a bubble bath solution into the tub, and blocking the overflow drain with a sponge. However, he suddenly realizes if the tub overflows, it will leak out into the hall; the bath toys care little if this happens and continue to party. He tries to turn off the water, but only causes the handle to fall off, and the drain stays plugged when he tries to pull it out. Finally, he spots the knob on the faucet that stops the flow from the faucet, but realizes too late that this only diverts the water to the shower head. The tub starts to overflow, the other bath toys oblivious to the problem. Outside the bathroom, Woody and the other toys go to see how Rex is doing when suddenly, the bathroom door bursts open and a flood of water pours out.

Later, Bonnie's mother is paying to have plumbing repairs done to the house. Rex, though he knows this was all his fault, since enjoys the short-lived fame with the other toys in Bonnie's room. Outside, pool toys, who have heard of Rex's exploits from the bath toys, get him to agree to help him turn on the outside faucet to let them party as well, Rex quickly joining in on their fun, ending the short.

Additional Voice Talent


The short was released theatrically with Finding Nemo 3D. It premiered on Disney Channel in the United States on October 8, 2012. On October 10, it was released online for free by Disney Video.[5][6][7] It is also available on iTunes,[8] Amazon,[9] and YouTube.[10] In October, Mark Walsh came to VIEW Conference in Turin, Italy, which he brought Partysaurus Rex with him, having its European premiere.[11] It isn't included on the Pixar Short Films Collection Volume 2. It made its home video debut as a special feature on the Monsters, Inc. 3D Blu-ray and Ultimate Collector's Edition, which was released on February 19, 2013.[12] According to Disney Brochure 2013, it is shown with Wreck-It Ralph in the United Kingdom.[13] (The brochure was incorrect; Wreck-It Ralph actually showed in the UK with Paperman, as in other markets. In the UK, as in the US, this short appears with Finding Nemo 3D, whose UK release was on Good Friday 2013.)


The short was very well-received. Ben Kendrick of The Christian Science Monitor said that Partysaurus Rex is "easily the most enjoyable franchise spin-off to date."[14]


Partysaurus Boat

Disney has also announced a bath set, called the "Partysaurus Boat" based on the short, and that was released in the fall.[15][16]


Electronic artist BT, who composed music for the short, said about it: "I'm in the middle of scoring a film for Pixar right now. It's a short for Toy Story and I'm not allowed to say the whole story, but quite literally, it's like a Toy Story rave - and I'm actually not kidding either. The toys get into all these shenanigans and it's like pounding club music. So it's really not very Pixar, but in a really hysterical way, everyone laughs really hard when they see it."[17]

The song from the short, titled "Partysaurus Overflow," was released as a digital download on November 19, 2012, on iTunes and Amazon. Beside BT, the cover art also credits electronic dance producer Au5.[18]


  • T-Bone from Small Fry

    The toilet seat cover in the bathroom is blue with purple spots, resembling the pattern of Sulley's fur from Monsters, Inc.
  • This short reuses a lot of Randy Newman's scores in the Toy Story movies (specifically from Toy Story 2 when Rex sees the bath toys sad after the bathtub is drained).
  • A T-Bone toy can be seen during the bathtub's overflow.
  • In the end, Rex told Mr. Potato Head about how he was creating a party in the bathroom, but Mr. Potato Head didn't believe him. Then, the some toys were outside at an inflatable pool, asking Rex to start another party, proving that Rex was creating a party. That is similar to how Cars Toons: Mater's Tall Tales usually end.
  • A few of the bathroom toys seem to resemble Peach, Mr. Ray, and one of the dolphins from Finding Nemo. Incidentally, the short was released with Finding Nemo's 3D re-release of September 14, 2012.
  • Tony Cox voices the rubber duck when excited and loud, while Don Fullilove voices him when calm and depressed.
  • When the tap's handle comes off with one of the bathroom toys on it and sinks into the water, the "sinker" toys that are seen on the bottom of the bathtub are some of the Sunnyside Daycare toys in Toy Story 3; including the collapsible dog from Tin Toy, the toy versions of Mr. Ray and the dolphin, and a toy tractor resembling the ones from Cars. The other sinker toys are a Rubik's Cube, a toy car that was modeled as the one of the Condorman toy from Small Fry, an original Little People scientist figure, and a small toy robot.
  • This is the first and so-far only Toy Story Toons episode that doesn't include a post-credit scene.
  • A sound effect used by Rex in Toy Story 2 when Buzz's rescue party uses Slinky to get to the ground is re-used in one scene in this short, as well as one that was used when Rex saw the Buzz Lightyear: Attack on Zurg strategy guide.
  • Peas-in-a-Pod did not physically appear in this short but they were a drawing on Bonnie's Wall.

A toy tractor

  • At the beginning, Rex has a recycled Godzilla roar sound effect when he appears in a big bathtub inside Rex's dream.
  • This is Woody and Buzz's smallest speaking role in the Toy Story franchise, as they each only had one lines in this short.
  • This was the first Toy Story production to feature the 2011–present Disney Castle logo.
  • This short was released on Blu-ray and DVD in 2013 on the 2013 Monsters, Inc. Blu-ray and DVD and in 2014 on the Toy Story of Terror! Blu-ray and DVD.
