The Pixar Detective, Chapter 6: The Collectible

Hey everyone! Welcome to The Pixar Detective, a serial novel I put together based on the Pixar Theory. The following is a fictional story that explains the theory that all of the Pixar movies are connected and exist within the same universe, using original characters and artwork. The story answers a lot of questions you may have about this theory, but through its own ongoing narrative.

The story originally launched in April, and we’ve recently completed Part 1!

It is available as an iBook on iTunes, which you can check out here. If you can’t use iBooks, you can also download the PDF version. 

Once you’re finished, check back to our Table of Contents, where we’ll be continuing the story through Part 2. A new chapter is released every two weeks on Tuesdays. And please be sure to leave your feedback in the comments for us to read through. Enjoy!


Previously on the Pixar Detective!

wallwithoutglassesIt was a clash in the Middle Ages as Stevin Parker, Wallaby Jones, and Professor Alec Azam continued their time-traveling pursuit of their missing friend, Mary.

While exploring the mysterious cottage in Scotland, Stevin and the gang came across a cipher left behind by Mary that revealed the number 1935 as an undetermined clue.

Fresh out of leads, Alec determined to concoct a location spell that would lead them to the owner of the purple hair found in Mary’s room. With all of the ingredients they need now in their possession, Stevin and the gang are ready to track down whatever it is that took their friend.

  1. I suppose that agents are part of the evolution of the NSA (National Supers Agency).

  2. A Part I Title could be “Mary’s Boo Boo” or “Strange Things are Happening to Me” (from the Toy Story song). How about “Doors! Hairs! Magic!” (like the lights, camera, action for movies). It could simply be “The Pixar Detective Part I.” I’ll let you know if I can think of anything else.

    Great story this week. I can tell that it took a while to finish. The story just keeps getting more mysterious and complicated. Who’re the hexagon people? Who is Mr. Sumner? What’s Randall doing right now? Is he part of the Hexagon people? What’s Presto got to do with this? Does Alec get turned into a bunny for the show?

    Thinking in a text box field instead of “out loud.”

    Were the updated pictures going to be in color? Just curious about that.

    • Not going to lie. “Mary’s Boo Boo” sent me into a fit of joy and laughter.

      And yeah, “Part 1” is definitely the default title, though I have a decent one I’ll use if all else fails. My goal is that a good title pops out before we get to Chapter 10, and it will encompass the whole story thus far.

      I’m sure the Hexagon stuff is bound to confuse people, but I can assure you that this part of the story will be spelled out contextually in Chapter 7, which will slow things down considerably (in a good way).

      As for the updated pictures, we’re planning on keeping those black and white in order to differentiate “sketches” from covers. Plus it saves Kayla time so that she can draw as many sketches as possible for each chapter! Hopefully we’ll have even more coming out per chapter as they get longer and more intricate.

  3. Hi Jon! I am the reader who wants to make a movie out of the Pixar Detective. I think your title should be “Running with Doors” or “Magic and Door Travel”. Thanks!

    • Hmmm well if I ever dream up a Native American subplot in the story, the main character’s name will absolutely be “Running with Doors.” Thanks for the ideas!

  4. Love this so far since metroville is where the incrediables live and the shady hexagon govement agency was experimenting on a monster does that have to do with how the supers came to be. -just a Pixar genius

  5. I’m sure everybody’s dying to know more about Mary and the doors and all that stuff, but the only mystery I want to figure out is the connection between agents in a super secret agency in 1935 and a tank of fish in a dentist’s office in Australia years later.
    (At least I hope the similarity between the names was intentional…? Or I’m gonna feel really silly for this comment.)

  6. Amazing, Jon! You’ve done it once again! I zip throughout the chapters. So far, the book has grabbed me, and kept me in its grasp. I do so hope this will be published and novelized. May I suggest a title? ‘The Door Vaults.’ Hope it helps! -Shine! 🙂
