If you are like us, and watch basically every single Pixar film that comes out because of how flippin’ awesome they are, you’ve probably noticed that there is someone who sounds pretty familiar in pretty much everyone of the studio’s films.
That, is John Ratzenberger. Ya know, Cliff the postal worker from the long running television show, Cheers. John Ratzenberger’s tenure in Pixar films first started back in 1995 with the first full length feature the studio put out, the much lauded Toy Story. At the time, Ratzenberger was relatively fresh off the success of his run on Cheers, where he portrayed Cliff Calvin, the know-it-all postal worker, from 1982 until 1992.
Now, over the years and after several Pixar release, you might have wondered why exactly he is in so many of these animated films, and you are not the only person who has thought that. We certainly have as well! According to writer and producer Andrew Stanton, while out at press junkets for the original Toy Story, members of Pixar reportedly had so much fun with Ratzenberger and enjoyed his presence to such a degree, that the animation house decided to try to work with him as much as possible on future projects.
So we dug into it and figured out the story behind Ratzenberger’s inclusion in these films, as well as some of his lesser known roles in Pixar movies that you may not have noticed. Watch to learn about this fascinating story and dive into the world of Pixar.
