In the distant future, a small waste-collecting robot inadvertently embarks on a space journey that will ultimately decide the fate of mankind.
Fred Willard's appearance in the film marks Andrew Stanton's very first live action shoot.
Voice in commercial:
Too much garbage in your face? There's plenty of space out in space! BnL StarLiners leaving each day. We'll clean up the mess while you're away.
Passengers on the Axiom often consume sugary drinks/food, and never seem to brush their teeth (only the Captain is seen having his teeth cleaned and maybe some passengers at the beauty starting). This would lead to tooth decay. However the teeth are perfectly fine. This could be because drinks sold on the Axiom are free of added sugar, or some drinks remove plaque upon drinking.
The logo for Buy n Large, the fictional company in the film, appears at the end of the credits along with the Disney and Pixar logos.
Home video prints replace the closing Pixar logo with a custom logo. (see Crazy Credits)
