If you loved the film Inside Out, there's a good chance that you loved it because of one emotion in particular - Sadness. I had the amazing opportunity to chat on the phone with Phyllis Smith, who voiced Sadness, in an exclusive interview for The Mary Sue! And let me tell you, she sounds almost exactly like Sadness over the phone. It was all I could do not to jump through the phone to give her a big hug!Read More

Each baggy, seven centimeters in length, is filled with colored liquid and the imprisoned animal(s) of choice.
