How Bowers was watching some previews of Pixar's next feature, "Up," and spotted a ukulele on the mantlepiece in the home of the lead character, Carl Fredricksen. How graciously grabbed a screen shot for us.
Sez How: "No way to know yet if he plays on-screen, but it's interesting to see the instrument show up. I know that Pixar's Ricky Nierva is a big fan of the uke -- I wonder if that's the connection."
It's an unusual shape, but I seem to recall seeing it before. Anyone?
