Pixar has several signature details hidden in every film: the Pizza Planet truck, A113, not to mention tons of references to characters from other films. But did you know that one of Pixar’s signatures is a voice?
To date, Disney legend John Ratzenberger has been in every single Pixar film. Sometimes he plays a leading role (Toy Story), while other times he has a quick cameo that’s easy to miss if you’re not paying attention. Ratzenberger has been working with Pixar since the beginning, so including his voice in a film is now considered a good luck charm.
