Light & Heavy is a Pixar computer animated short which was created by Pixar Animation Studios for Sesame Street in April 1991. It starred Luxo Jr. from the previous film with the character.

Light & Heavy was shown on one of the short films of Odyssey’s Computer Animation Showcase in August 1997.


The two balls in this segment are different. One is a colorful beach ball which is described as “light” and another is a green bowling ball described as “heavy”.


Luxo Jr. likes playing ball so after entering the screen, he kicks the beach ball with his head passing it to his dad, Luxo Sr, who passes it back to Luxo Jr. He tries to push his new bowling ball with his super strength but it’s not working, so he kicks the beach ball higher and pushes the bowling ball with much effort while it pushes Luxo Sr. away from the screen.
