The Pixar Detective, Chapter 14: “World of Cretins”

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 since then we’ve finished Part 1 and Part 2!

Both are available as iBooks on iTunes, which you can check out here. If you can’t use iBooks, can also download the PDF versions:

Part 1: (PDF version)

Part 2: (PDF version)

Once you’re finished, check back to our Table of Contents, where we’ll be continuing the story through Part 3. 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!

chapter 14 pixar detective


To find their missing friend, Stevin, Wallaby, and their super powered friend Sadie, along with mischievous monster, Mr. Sumner, are on the search for Sumner’s future self. A monster who may know what happened to their friend, Mary.



Currently in the year 2001, our heroes have tracked “Other Sumner” to the house of a girl named Darla, but they’ve been stopped by a group of “babysitters,” who are secretly students from a mysterious academy known as Pixar University. 

chapter 11 pixar detective

Among them are Cara and Logan, who are descendants of the infamous superhero line known as “The Incredibles.” Logan, a girl who can manipulate fire, has attacked Sadie, the world’s first super, leaving Stevin, Wallaby and Mr. Sumner to contend with the other “babysitters.”

  1. Ótimo capítulo. Melhor que o anterior. A batalha entre Sadie e Logan foi sensacional.

  2. Jaw droping is right. What does the CEO of Buy-n-Large want with the agents?
    Question. Does the reference to Avatar in this Chaper have anything to do with “Sparky sparky boom man”?

    • Among many of his aliases, yes. Though to be fair, a lot of the storytelling and humor I write is directly inspired by the tone of that series.

      • It’s combustion man…
        PS I also love Avatar and Korra! There are my favorite shows before I first saw Doctor Who. I could make a series inspired by both you and the doctor about the same concept as you, but with new characters, I just don’t know yet.
        PPS Finally BnL shows up, maybe

        • I think Sokka had it right the first time with Sparky Sparky Boom Man. It just has a nice ring to it, you know?

          • I think Combustion Man is better, but I respect your opinion

  3. It is jaw dropping! Your ideas are awesome, no wonder I love this series.
    I think that our detectives and babysitters will find characters from both Monsters Inc and University. Also, BnL finally shows up, and would play an important role in the rest of Part 2. I think Part 2 will split up in two arcs, one where everyone at Monstropolis tries to get out of there, with the help of the OKs (The last part is a stretched prediction) and one where BnL starts its World Domination with the Hexagons.

    • Interesting predictions. I think you’ll like the surprises that are still to come!

  4. In WallE, Shelby Forthbright was the CEO of BnL, which is from 20??-2110, but he meets Hexagon in 2001, claiming that he knows them since the 30s. Unless Shelby will end up in the future by a door, then. I don’t know heat is going on.

    • Please excuse my misspelling, it is supposed to say, “Unless Shelby will end up in the future by a door, then I don’t know what is going on” I was writing on my iPad and forgot the mistakes…

  5. The Shelby is which movie ?

    • Wall-E. Shelby was the CEO of BnL during the time of the animal war (I think) and the evacuation

      • When Cars and Toy Story will enter the plot ?

  6. What is the extra material from the complete ebook of Part 1 ? I could not download

    • Extra sketches for some of the chapters a new cover for Chapter 1. It’s also been re-edited. Did you try downloading the PDF version?

      • yes, but it did not work

  7. Jon I provided feedback on the final section. I’d appreciate a response either here or on the Chapter 15 website coreball. What a fantastic new chapter! You really are incredible.
