Jack-Jack Attack

Synopsis: In a dark room, Agent Rick Dicker interrogates Kari, a young girl with braces. He asks what happened. Kari explains that she was babysitting for an infant, Jack-Jack, who seems able to levitate, float, pass through walls, catch fire, and cause havoc. Kari stays nimble but barely holds on until an odd young man with orange hair and an "S" on his shirt rings the bell.
Director(s): Brad Bird
Production: Pixar Animation Studios

Wow, it's dark in here.

- Wow! And now it's too bright!

- 182702.

- Agent Rick Dicker interrogating.

- Wow.

State your name, please.

Kari. Kari McKeen.

It's like Carrie,

only with a K instead of a C,

and an A instead of an E,

and only one R,

and an I instead of an IE.

Tell me about the incident.

Well, it started out like

any normal sitting gig,

you know, with the reassuring,

and the parent, and all.

Mrs. Parr, I can totally handle

anything this baby can dish out.

Can't I, little boo-boo-baby?

Who can handle it? Who can handle it?

Mrs. Parr? Mrs. Parr?

Oh, well.

She knows you're in good hands.

Now who's ready for some

neurological stimulation?

It's time for cognitive developm... eh?

Who's the goo-goo-baby?

Where's he hiding?

That was really weird.

Wait right here.

Hello Mrs. Parr, this is Kari.

I have a question.

About Jack-Jack? Can you call me?

Jack-Jack? Baby? Where are you?

Where... Ah!

Mrs. Parr, it's me. Jack-Jack is fine,

but weird things are happening

and you need to tell me

what to do, 'cause I'm...

How'd you get... Wah!

We're gonna calm

things down a bit now,

and look at flash cards.

Won't that be fun?






Don't panic! Baby on fire, baby on fire!

Good baby! Nice baby...

- Yes?

- Is this the Parr's residence?

Yes! I'm Kari, the babysitter!

Well, hello, uh... Kari. I am...

You're my replacement,

thank heaven you've come!

What does the S stand for?

For... s...

Sitter! Yeah, sitter.

Originally I was gonna have

initials for babysitter,

but then I would've been

going around wearing a big BS,

and you understand why

I couldn't go with that.

- And you believed him.

- The baby was exploding!

You ever seen an exploding

baby before, Mr. Dicker?

- What's that?

- You told anyone else about this?

- Your parents?

- Yeah, they tought I was being funny.

But you believe me.

Don't you Mr. Dicker?

Sure, kid.

I just wish I could

forget the whole thing.

You will, kid...

You will.

Brad Bird

Phillip Bradley Bird (born September 24, 1957) is an American animation director and screenwriter. He is best known for his animated feature films, The Iron Giant (1999), The Incredibles (2004), Ratatouille (2007) and Incredibles 2 (2018). Bird developed a love for the art of animation at an early age and was mentored by Milt Kahl, one of Disney's legendary Nine Old Men. He was part of one of the earliest graduating classes of the California Institute of the Arts alongside John Lasseter and Tim Burton. Afterwards, Bird worked as an animator for Disney in The Fox and the Hound (1981) and The Black Cauldron (1985) and wrote the screenplay for Batteries Not Included (1987). Bird served as a creative consultant on The Simpsons during its first eight seasons, where he helped develop the show's animation style. Bird directed his first animated feature film, The Iron Giant in 1999. Although it fared poorly at the box office, it came to be regarded as a modern animated classic. He rejoined John Lasseter at Pixar in 2000, where he developed his second animated film, The Incredibles (2004). He directed his third film, Ratatouille in 2007. Both films place among Pixar's highest-grossing features and gave Bird two Academy Award for Best Animated Feature wins and Academy Award for Best Original Screenplay nominations. In 2011, Bird directed his first live-action film Mission: Impossible – Ghost Protocol, which was a critical and commercial success. His second live-action film, Tomorrowland, starring George Clooney, was released in May 2015. In 2018, Incredibles 2 was released, which Bird wrote and directed. Like its predecessor, the film was a critical and box office success. more…
