** Then there's ''[[http://jonnegroni.com/2013/07/11/the-pixar-theory/ The Pixar Theory]]'' by Joe Negroni which goes into great detail about how each film is possibly connected.

* BreakthroughHit: ''WesternAnimation/ToyStory''



* CashCowFranchise: Merchandise for the ''Cars'' series has been noted to sell extremely well.



* DoingItForTheArt: Steve Jobs spent a fortune on this small company that no one knew about for a decade ''before'' they exploded into fame.



* SerendipityWritesThePlot: By the early 1990s, everything CG was kinda plastic... so Pixar did [[WesternAnimation/ToyStory a film starring plastic characters]]. Then computer technology allowed to depict living animals better ([[WesternAnimation/ABugsLife bugs]], [[WesternAnimation/MonstersInc furry/scaly creatures]], [[WesternAnimation/FindingNemo fish]], and then [[WesternAnimation/TheIncredibles humans]]).



* StuntCasting: Subverted! Pixar certainly has commendable star power for each film, but make it a point to match the actor to the character, not [[InkSuitActor vice versa]].
** With one half-exception. While Frozone is generally his own self, they couldn't resist giving Creator/SamuelLJackson the opportunity to [[HamAndCheese ham it up]] just for fun.

Of course, if you think they're not business-minded, keep in mind that, until ''WesternAnimation/TheGoodDinosaur'', their films had never failed financially. Out of their films, only four (''WesternAnimation/ToyStory'', ''WesternAnimation/ABugsLife'', ''WesternAnimation/{{Cars 2}}'' and ''The Good Dinosaur'') have failed to break the $200 million dollar mark in the US, and none of them failed to break the $200 million mark in foreign box office take; the studio's highest-grossing film, ''WesternAnimation/ToyStory3'' made over a billion dollars worldwide (becoming the highest-grossing animated film of all time until ''Disney/{{Frozen}}'' and ''WesternAnimation/{{Minions}}'' exceeded it, as well as the first animated film to earn a billion). The average domestic box office take of a Pixar film is around $250 million, and their films have made almost ten billion dollars total in combined domestic and foreign box office take. Also worth noting: every single Pixar film had opened at the #1 spot in the weekend box office [[BrokenStreak until]] ''WesternAnimation/InsideOut's'' release in 2015 [[note]]Though it ended up being Pixar's second-biggest opening weekend behind ''Toy Story 3'', and had THE largest opening for an original film so far in Hollywood; it didn't reach #1 because Comcast/Universal's ''Film/JurassicWorld'' opened the previous weekend, but the two films together bulldozed most of their competition. ''The Good Dinosaur'', which continued the BrokenStreak, was less fortunate, and, unlike ''Inside Out'', never made it to #1.[[/note]]. Sans ''Brave'' (while still a respectable #13) and ''The Good Dinosaur'' (a less remarkable #25), all of Pixar's films are among the top ten highest-grossing films of the year they've been released.
