Disney/Pixar Animated Short Reviews: #65 Riley's First Date ? 2015 9 out of 10

Riley's First Date?  2015  9 out of 10

Pixar’s Animated Short  Riley’s First Date?  Proves that the story potentials for the world they created in Inside Out are endless.  Although the concept for Inside Out wasn’t new as I talked about in my movie review 

Pixar took the concept to the next level with the movie.  

There is so much to play around with in this fictional world.  
Inside Out mainly focused on the emotions Inside Riley’s brain –but it also gave us a look inside some of the other characters heads as well.   There is a classic scene in the movie where we see inside both the parents brains as they try to figure out why Riley is in such a bad mood in the film.   In Riley’s First Date we get to see more of what the parents are thinking as they try to deal with the fact that their daughter may be going on her first date.   
The cartoon also goes inside the mind of the date and the results are a great entertaining little cartoon.  The Dad doesn’t want any guy dating his daughter and we get to see his emotions react to this boy sitting in his house.  The mom is trying to act “cool” and find out what is going on with her daughter.  This was a great setting for an Inside Out story.    If you liked the movie this cartoon is a must see.  I hope they do many more of these cartoon shorts in the Inside Out world.    If you recall the final scenes from the film during the credits---the possibilities for story ideas are absolutely endless.    I would love to see a cartoon in the Inside Out world between  featuring a dog and a cat.   We briefly got to see inside their minds at the end of the feature film….but imagine a take on an old Tom and Jerry cartoon when you can see what is going on inside their minds.
