In case you didn’t already have enough reasons to go see The Muppets, we present to you one more: Theatrical screenings of the Disney film will be preceded by a brand-new short from Pixar, with the Toy Story franchise’s Buzz Lightyear front and center.

Titled “Small Fry,” the seven-minute film introduces us to a tiny, fast food meal version of Buzz Lightyear (Teddy Newton) yearning for a better life than his current restaurant display case existence. To that end, he decides to kidnap the bigger Buzz Lightyear (Tim Allen) so that they can trade places. In the clip, the Buzz we know and love attempts a daring, space ranger-worthy escape from the fast food play pen — only to land squarely in the middle of a group therapy session for discarded Fun Meal toys. Jane Lynch lends her vocal talents to Neptuna, a narcissistic plastic mermaid who serves as the leader of the group. Watch the 30-second clip after the jump.
