I absolutely loved the Pixar exhibit at the Oakland Museum
It was incredibly well done and really thorough, it covered the entire 25 year history of Pixar. For me, it was like tiptoeing back through Dagny and Dane's childhood. Toy Story came out the year Dagny was born (as evidenced by the fact that we own it on VHS) so those characters have always been part of their lives. Toy Story 2 was the go-to movie in the afternoon when I needed a break from Dane running around yelling "Woody, Buzz! Woody, Buzz!" I remember the first time they saw Finding Nemo and how forever after every clown fish was a Nemo. They practiced their screams just in case a monster came out of their closet, and for an entire year Dagny pretended to be Cowgirl Jessie. (that part in Toy Story 2 where Jessie is under the bed? You have to be dead inside to not shed a tear during that scene) The Bug's Life bugs, the Monsters Inc. monsters, The Incredibles, all a part of their childhood. What lucky kids.
There was no picture taking allowed in the exhibit, so go here for a slideshow and a really good description of the whole thing.
