    Lightbulb Luxo Jr. Coming to DHS

    This is from the Orlando Sentinel:

    Luxo Jr., the hopping desk lamp that serves as the mascot for Pixar Animation Studios, is coming to Walt Disney World.

    Disney officials confirmed today that a 6-foot-tall animatronic version of Luxo will soon take up residence in the Pixar Place section of Disney’s Hollywood Studios. He will appear on an elevated platform at the “Lighting” building in Pixar Place, just across from Toy Story Mania!.

    Luxo was the star of the first short film in Pixar’s history, which premiered in 1986.

    “He’s going to come out and do some little shows,” said Roger Gould, creative director for theme parks at Pixar, which the Walt Disney Co. bought for $7.4 billion in 2006. “He’ll be out there throughout the day and through the evening.

    Rumors have been circulating for months that such the Luxo project was in the works and construction walls were recently erected around the Lighting building. Disney didn’t provide an exact date for Luxo’s first appearance, though it should be very soon.

    That will be a cute addition.
    Some people are like Slinkies.

    They aren't really good for anything,
    but they still bring a smile to my face when I push them down a flight of stairs.

    Friends are Gods way of apologizing to us for our families.

    I hope it doesn't "short" out on you, V!

    Sorry- just couldn't resist the statement. Sounds like a lot of potential fun!

    I would guess they would have it done by then. That's when the crowds start to pick up for the holidays.
