In the first Pixar short, 1986's "Luxo Jr.," a baby lamp finds a ball to play with, and it's all fun and games until the ball bursts. When Pixarite John Lasseter, formerly of Disney, was learning how to make digital models, he chose the nearest, easiest subject: an architect's lamp on his desk. "Luxo Jr." was nominated for an Oscar.
