Disney / Pixar's short film Lifted actually screened in theaters before Ratatouille, but if you never saw this flick in theaters, you might have missed this little gem of a short. Directed by Gary Rydstrom (who has been nominated for 14 Academy Awards and won three, all for sound design), its the story of an unfortunate alien named Stu, who is trying to abduct his first sleeping farmer from Earth, while being graded by the ominous Mr. B. We'd like to think that all aliens have to go through some sort of a similar testing process before they're allowed to start experimenting on us. We're just glad the film didn't feature the anal probe final exam. Maybe in the sequel.
