If there’s one thing you can demonstrably say for the Pixar folks, it’s that they have an unusual knack for creating adorably obnoxious characters. I swear, half of their characters would annoy the ever-loving shit out of me in any other context, but somehow, they make it work for them.

The latest example comes from the forthcoming, Up, and a talking dog named Dug. The same dog in a Dreamworks Animation movie might inspire cinematic bitchslaps. But in a Pixar movie, I — like the kid in the movie — want to take Dug home (although, I suspect, I’d be having Jersey-style Chinese food after a few hours with him).

Check out the new 90-second clip from Up:
