George & A.J.

A.J. is one of the two main characters in this short film. After leaving Carl's residence, where he flew his house away, A.J. and his colleague, George, are still trying to ask the elderly to join Shady Oaks. But all of them escape, in different ways. For instance, one house got pulled away by cats, and another went to float on water. Soon after, they return to Shady Oaks, and soon come to realise that the elderly there are escaping also. As it goes off into the distance, Carl and Russell, return in The Spirit of Adventure with Dug who speaks in front of A.J., making him and George gasp.


  • A.J.'s name tag reads "Nancy" in Up. According to Pete Docter, This was a deliberate detail, suggesting that he had put on a random tag, conveying the idea he is somewhat untidy, as opposed to his colleague.[1]
