Forecast is Partly Cloudy on May 29

Pixar has a released a photo still from Partly Cloudly, their latest animated short that will be shown before Up. Actually, it's been floating all over the interwebs for a little over a month now, but I only recently saw it on their Facebook group

Here's the premise of Partly Cloudy (found on Blue Sky Disney):

"Everyone knows that the stork delivers babies, but where do the storks get the babies from? The answer lies up in the stratosphere, where cloud people sculpt babies from clouds and bring them to life. Gus, a lonely and insecure grey cloud, is a master at creating "dangerous" babies. Crocodiles, porcupines, rams and more -- Gus's beloved creations are works of art, but more than a handful for his loyal delivery stork partner, Peck. As Gus's creations become more and more rambunctious, Peck's job gets harder and harder. How will Peck manage to handle both his hazardous cargo and his friend's fiery temperament?"

There hasn't been a Pixar short I haven't liked so far, so I'm pretty excited to see how this one turns out. Plus Gus reminds me of the Stay Puft Marshmallow Man . . . sort of.
