Groovin' with Ken!

Disney/Pixar released on YouTube this morning Groovin' With Ken!, a purported old interview with Barbie accessory Ken from back in the '70s.

The very amusing video (not part of Toy Story 3) was first shown to attendees at last year's San Diego Comic-Con in July, then at the 2009 D23 expo in September; its arrival on the web has been highly anticipated since then.

I'm a bit confused -- is this the short to be included on the DVD (in the same vein as Jack-Jack Attack, Dug's Special Mission, etc.) or is it just an animation Pixar wanted to do alongside TS3 for fun? I like it in any case. Excited to see how Ken fully plays out in the movie.

FINALLY!!!

That was hysterical! The animation was fantastic, and Keaton knocked it out of the park. Worth the wait.

Thanks Mike!

I'm pretty sure this is just a funny promotional video Pixar made. I suspect the Toy Story 3 short film on the DVD may take place in the location Andy's toys end up in at the end of the film. ;)

Just a note to everyone: Please don't post anything that may reference the end of the film. I want to go in knowing nothing of the ending. (This in particular applies to those of you who may have read books or already seen the film.)

Thanks!

I suspect they'll throw it in at least one version of the DVD, but I suspect it was created for promotional purposes much like the CarToons and there will be something more substantial for the DVD short. As the DVD short is one of the selling points of the DVD, giving it away for free online doesn't make a whole lot of sense.

The more I see of this Ken character, the more I like the way they've developed him. A perfect match for Barbie though? Hilarious extra material, I love how they build hype.

This was first shown at a convention, comic-con I believe. They wanted to show off Ken but didnt have any completed animation to show at the time, so they made this.
