Movie Info

As a peasant girl with a single coin approaches the piazza fountain and prepares to make her wish, two dueling street musicians attempt to redirect the coin into their tip jars in this computer animated Pixar short that found the filmmakers and composers working in close collaboration. At first Bass slides up beside the little girl playing the same familiar tune as always, but when ambitious newcomer Treble adds a catchy string accompaniment the competition really starts to get interesting.

Audience Reviews for One Man Band


This short Pixar film is so wonderful. The story is about a pair of street performers locked in a competition to out-perform the other and win the golden coin of a little girl passing by. The graphics is superb, with great attention to details to the characters and scenery. Very entertaining!

A great Pixar short

Another surprise gem from Pixar, which was shown in the cinema alongside Cars. It's another musical short in a similar vein as Boundin' but whereas that prelude to The Incredibles was aimed squarely at kids, One Man Band is funny regardless of your age but still has a strong fable at its heart. Animation, as you'd expect from Pixar, is faultless - the whole thing looks and sounds fabulous. It's also wonderfully funny as both street performers become ever more aggressive in their attempts to get the little girl's money. Brilliantly written, wonderfully scored, genuinely amusing.
