UPDATE: For anyone that missed the premiere of the shorts on television, you can catch a replay of the shorts on the DisneyShorts YouTube channel. All three of the shorts will be played in a row when playing the video below.
We also sent a message to director, Jeremy Lasky after the shorts aired to congratulate the entire Pixar team – he tweeted back with the note below.

It sure sounds like this was another great partnership between Pixar in Emeryville and Pixar Canada…much like during PartySaurus Rex. Congratulations to the entire Pixar family for another successful debut!
Fans of Cars, be sure to rev your engines! Tonight on The Disney Channel (during the broadcast of Up) you will be able to catch the premiere of three brand new Cars Toons – Shorty Shorts. Shorty Shorts you ask? This is a new series of shorts which are really, well, short!
The official word came from Disney•Pixar just moments ago and included screenshots as well as a brief description of the shorts which were directed by Jeremy Lasky and Produced by Mary Alice Drumm.
Although this is Jeremy Lasky’s directorial debut, his contributions to Pixar date back to A Bug’s Life when he worked as a layout artist. Following A Bug’s Life, Jeremy worked on Toy Story 2, Monsters, Inc., Finding Nemo, Cars, WALL•E, and Toy Story 3.
