Bios for the New Characters in Small Fry
Through the Toy Story Facebook page, Disney/Pixar has released bios for the characters who you see in the pictures above. I'll go in order of the pictures posted.
Neptuna (played by Jane Lynch)- For centuries, Queen Neptuna ruled the peaceful ocean kingdom of New Nautica. When her undersea home was defiled by corporate industrial waste and discount chain stores, Neptuna formed The Mermaid Battle Squadron to protect the ocean from future pollution and exploitation
T-Bone, Leader of the Steak Force (played by the short's director, Angus MacLane)- Fearing the healthy, life-extending agenda of the evil Vegitenarians, the government established the Steak Force, a commando squad of heroic robots dedicated to mandating a meat option for every meal. Sponsored in part by the American Meat Council.
Funky Monk- Spiritual mentor to Rappin’ Robin and Lil’ Juan, Funky Monk always keeps it real and on the down low. Be it a rap battle between his boys and Producer P John or hooking up a guest-spot on the next MC Maid Marion single, Funky Monk has got your back. See Funky Monk in the CGI animated film “Rappin’ Robin in the Hood 3D,” only in theaters.
Condorman- When comic book artist Wiley Wilkins is given the opportunity to act out the pages of his greatest cartoon creation, “Condorman,” he jumps at the chance! Will Condorman defeat the evil Krokov and win the heart of the beautiful Natalia Rambova? Find out when Condorman swoops into theaters, Summer 1981.
Bozu, The Ninja Clown- Circus clown by day, 15th century ninja from feudal Japan by night, Bozu is a master of silent entertainment. Armed with his balloon katana and a cream pie, this Ninja Clown is sure to have even the grumpiest Circus audience members in stitches!
I love the amount of detail Pixar puts into these characters who you'll probably never see ever again. More bios coming soon. I will post them as they arrive. Small Fry is in the theaters now with The Muppets. So go see it. Now.
