Pixar is no stranger to tugging human heartstrings, and it's struck gold again with its latest animated short.

Called "Piper," the short from Pixar Animation Studios, released on Thursday, follows a hungry sandpiper hatchling being taught by his mother how to catch food.

The villain in the piece is the sea, with an early soaking giving the Piper a water phobia until help arrives in the form of a tiny crab.

The way the bird overcomes his fear is all rather delightful. Take a look below.
