DaroCaro's Pixar Puzzle Hunt is a puzzle hunt run in December 2020. The hunt is Pixar-themed and is notable for its art and theming.

The hunt consists of 15 feeder puzzles and a multi-part meta and runaround. Each feeder puzzle is based on a Pixar short or feature film, and the overarching story centers around Toy Story (franchise). The difficulty level is intended to be beginner-friendly.

Plot[edit | edit source]

After falling asleep to a VHS recording of Toy Story, you find yourself waking up in the Toy Story universe to a frantic Budd and Goody. Goody explains that Sporky has run off again, and suspects that this time Sporky has used a portal toy to travel to other dimensions. They ask you to travel to these other dimensions, look for clues, and ultimately, find Sporky.
