You hear that whirring sound? That's the steel door descending on your chance to visit Pixar Animation Studios at the 7th annual Cartoon Art Museum benefit.

Today at 3 p.m. PT, CAM will be cutting off ticket sales for this year's event. Which means - unless you're willing to pony up $199 (which will get you a ticket for the VIP Screening Tier level) --  you'll miss out on your chance to explore the Emeryville campus ...

... where you can take part in an art class ...

... for a screening of "Day & Night" and "Toy Story 3" in Pixar's screening room. Which will then be followed by a Q & A with film-makers who worked on these two productions.

Speaking of "Day & Night" ... If you're not able to make this Saturday's fundraiser, then you may want to swing by the Cartoon Art Museum on Thursday, November 18th. Which is when Pixar's Chris Wiggum will be on hand to interview Teddy Newton about his career at this Emeryville-based studio as well as Teddy's new book, "Day and Night." Which is based on the animated short of the same name.

But that's on November 18th (and - if you'd like to attend this talk & book signing - CAM will be looking for a $5 donation). But if you'd like to attend this Saturday's Cartoon Art Museum fundraiser at Pixar Animation Studios ...

... Remember, you only have 'til 3 p.m. PT to buy your tickets.

However, looking ahead now, if you don't want to miss out on any future fun events like this CAM fundraiser and /or this Teddy Newton signing, you might want to sign up for the Cartoon Art Museum's Facebook page or Twitter feed.

Or - better yet - make a point of regularly dropping by the Cartoon Art Museum's  webpage.

But remember: There's only a limited number of tickets left for Saturday's benefit at Pixar Animation Studios. And the Cartoon Art Museum will be cutting off sales at 3 p.m. PT.  So don't delay, okay?
