-- -- -- -- -- I draining out as an actor whose voice is.
Featured in that film and every Pixar feature film before it John Ratzenberger so thank you so much your being here John.
As we thank you.
Cell let's talk about -- huge this franchise in particular first tell folks out there what character you play.
And what you love about miss picks are franchise.
Well I've -- -- -- I played -- the truck.
In the cars franchise.
That's basically because.
My father drove a Mack truck so John lesson when they asked me.
What kind of drug did you dad drive -- -- a Mac.
And so that's why he gave me that character had made it a Mac truck that's why I love working with Jon -- who incidentally tomorrow.
Is getting his star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.
Yes of course then then ask you about that and your work with him and Pixar in general.
On the the first well.
We'll keep things on cars and I wanted to ask you -- dvd is out and when you have an animated film on dvd.
You have a lot of fun with the dvd extras so -- you parent get a copy these dvds and had to go through it to see what else they got it banner when you maybe have nest.
Forget a garage full of what you want some good thing I have boxes up.
Well it's a the other this thing I that I -- also about Pixar -- especially cars.
I there was a perception in the beginning that it's only -- -- film but there are girl characters to.
And as you know you don't even have to have children.
To enjoy the Pixar movies so.
He has -- to be out tomorrow and the the three boxed set.
By the Toy Story franchise.
Is also coming out tomorrow and in the -- -- and 3-D.
Yes I saw that what we -- -- the big.
Yes and it's so perfect setup thank you we also have one at one of the dvd extras on the cars to look release.
Is -- original short and it features those familiar characters from Toy Story 3 so let's take a quick look at that -- we are back.
And I know you -- And we're gonna have a -- no way.
-- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- But the one.
-- next clue.
And -- So I saw Toy Story 3 was actually the third animated film ever to make it into the best picture.
Do you think and that animation and and films like this and even voice over work.
-- -- more recognized now days.
-- I I think it's.
It's solely because of Pixar it's not all animation work.
I think it's really just -- are because they take the high road.
The Pixar films will be classics fifty years from now.
As the classic Hollywood films are still classics.
-- -- was gone with the wind their Captains Courageous because they take the time to pay attention to the story.
The story is the most important thing when it comes to fix -- so that's why -- Even though his animation.
-- still live on as a classic.
And it's celebrating its 25 anniversary -- Pixar Animation Studios.
-- what being that you worked so closely with them.
What did you learn about how far this process has commented -- where it's going with the technology advancing an all of that.
Pixar that it's.
It's a special place for me because of their work ethic.
Every single phone.
They set themselves a challenge -- don't forget Pixar.
And -- eleven or twelve films they've done they've won 26.
Academy Awards are believed and -- that's outstanding that's breaks all records it's the most successful film studio in the history.
Of film of Hollywood.
But the reason is they set themselves a standard they.
Every film rights for -- -- in Finding Nemo they said let's make the water looked like water off until that time.
No one and animation in the history of animation has been able to make water looked like water and well they did it -- -- -- in the Incredibles.
They concentrated on with the wind the action of the wind going through the close of the -- In monsters ink.
It was the hair to make the hair of the monsters look real.
So every single film even though they don't have to think it's certainly rest on the laurels now but that's not part of their ethos.
They always set themselves a high standard and then they reach forward and achieve it and they make history at the same time.
Yeah it is now it's easier for everybody else.
