Luxo Jr. was the first computer animation to be shown by John Lasseter, the fabulously wealthy man behind Pixar. It introduced the world to computer animation and Luxo Jr is still used as Pixar's production logo. Luxo Jr. tells the story of an anglepoise lamp teaching his son (the eponymous Luxo Jr.) to play with a ball; the light and the ball being used to showcase computer's capabilities. It had to be pretty short because of the time it took to produce! It was the start of something big.
