Saturday Morning Cartoons: “Pioneer 10 Encounters Saturn” and “The Adventures of Andre and Wally B”

Pioneer 11 Encounters Saturn: A simulation of Pioneer 11’s flyby of Saturn created by computer graphics pioneer (sorry, I couldn’t resist) Jim Blinn while working for Nasa. (2:16 minutes)

The Adventures of Andre and Wally B: Pixar’s first animated short, while the company was still part of Lucasfilm. It created a huge splash when first screened at Siggraph. (2:05 minutes)
