* AvoidTheDreadedGRating: Averted; Initially averted; as of their 17 first fourteen films, [[http://www.imdb.com/search/title?certificates=us%3Ag&companies=co0017902&sort=alpha&title_type=feature 11 are only three of them were rated G]] and [[http://www.imdb.com/search/title?certificates=us%3Apg&companies=co0017902&sort=alpha&title_type=feature 6 are rated PG]] in PG. However, as UsefulNotes/TheNewTens progressed, it seems like Pixar now plays this trope straight. The final nail to the US.G-rated coffin was when ''WesternAnimation/FindingDory'', a sequel to a G-rated film, was granted a PG, despite it being identical to Nemo content-wise.

In mid-July 2014, technology news website Pando Tech revealed that PIXAR, as well as Disney Animation Studios, [=LucasFilm=], Ltd. and even rival studios Creator/DreamWorksAnimation and Creator/BlueSkyStudios were involved in a pact in which they fixed the salaries of their employees.

When Pixar makes a movie, more often than not, it will be well done ''at worst''. 13 out of the 16 films released so far (''WesternAnimation/{{Cars}} 2'', ''Monsters University'', and ''WesternAnimation/TheGoodDinosaur'' being the exceptions) have been nominated for at least one Oscar; in 2010, ''WesternAnimation/{{Up}}'' became the second animated film (and first CGI film) to be nominated for Best Picture, and the next year, ''WesternAnimation/ToyStory3'' became the third animated (and second CGI film) to get that nomination. Only one of the studio's films (''WesternAnimation/{{Cars}} 2'') has really failed critically; on WesternAnimation/RottenTomatoes, the first two ''WesternAnimation/ToyStory'' films have ''perfect scores'' (the third has a 99% rating, tying it with ''WesternAnimation/FindingNemo'' for second place). Many of their films sit on the Internet Movie Database's "top 250 films" list, and Pixar is usually topping that site's "50 best animated films" list (their highest-rated films have scores in the mid-8s). Nearly all of their films take their subjects and [[{{Deconstruction}} turn them]] [[{{Reconstruction}} on their heads]] ([[WesternAnimation/MonstersInc friendly monsters who only scare for their day jobs]], [[WesternAnimation/{{Cars}} race cars who learn to take it slow and that there's more to life than winning]], [[WesternAnimation/WallE robots who teach humans how to feel emotions again]], etc.) and in doing so pack them full of humor (including [[Radar/{{Pixar}} jokes that go way over the heads of kids]]) and drama.

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'' (at a less remarkable #21), all of Pixar's films are among the top ten highest-grossing films of the year they've been released.

* BlackAndWhiteMorality: Most Pixar films thus far.
** WhiteAndGreyMorality: ''WesternAnimation/ToyStory'', ''WesternAnimation/FindingNemo'', ''WesternAnimation/{{Brave}}'', ''WesternAnimation/WallE'' and ''WesternAnimation/MonstersUniversity''
** NoAntagonist: ''WesternAnimation/InsideOut''. There's no a main villain or even an ''[[WesternAnimation/FindingNemo unintentional]]'' [[WesternAnimation/ToyStory bad guy]]. The conflict arises from Sadness accidentally creating a sad core memory, which ends up causing Joy and Sadness to be stranded away from Headquarters when Joy tries to prevent it, leaving the other three emotions at a loss as to how to stabilize Riley's mind. Though some characters briefly act antagonistic, there is no outright antagonistic character in this film. [[spoiler:The antagonistic ''force'' is the concept of depression, but it's not given an AnthropomorphicPersonification like the other emotions.]]

** The only real exceptions to the rule are [[WesternAnimation/ToyStory Sid]] and [[WesternAnimation/ABugsLife Hopper]]. Sid was just a kid who was very destructive with his toys. We don't really know why, nor do we need to. And even then, he's doing this to ''toys'' - he has no idea he's doing all this to sentient beings. Hopper is also really hard on the ants not for some real excuse, but because he doesn't want to do any of the work himself (seeing as how they based the story on the Aesop fable of the Ants and the Grasshopper). However, this doesn't make them any less of good villains.

** The only real exceptions to * WhiteAndGreyMorality: As mentioned in WellIntentionedExtremist, the rule antagonists that show up in most Pixar movie are [[WesternAnimation/ToyStory Sid]] and [[WesternAnimation/ABugsLife Hopper]]. rarely straight up evil. In ''WesternAnimation/ToyStory'', Sid was just is a kid who was very destructive with his toys. We don't really know why, nor do we need to. And even then, he's doing this to ''toys'' - he kid who has no idea that he's doing all this to harming sentient beings. Hopper is also really hard on beings, and would grow up to a normal adult by the ants third movie. In ''WesternAnimation/FindingNemo'', the closest thing we have to a "villain" is the dentist's daughter -- who, like Sid, is simply a misbehaving kid who clearly has no idea how to take care of animals. ''WesternAnimation/{{Brave}}'''s primary antagonist is a "demon bear" who is mostly just acting out from instinct and is not malevolent for some real excuse, but because the sake of it. [[spoiler:When he doesn't want to do any dies, the spirit of the work himself (seeing as how they based man he once was thanked the story on main characters for freeing him from the Aesop fable of curse]]. In ''WesternAnimation/MonstersUniversity'', the Ants heroes faced off against a group of {{Jerk Jock}}s, but they're generally pretty harmless and is depicted more as an obstacle the Grasshopper). However, this doesn't make them any less heroes have to surpass to win the Scarer Games than an actual force of good villains.evil.

'''Pixar''' began when Creator/GeorgeLucas used some of his money to form a new division at Lucasfilm known as "Graphics Group". The company originally did this and that for a while, most notably the Genesis planet simulation from ''Film/StarTrekIITheWrathOfKhan'' and the stained-glass knight from ''Film/YoungSherlockHolmes''. Working there was one John Lasseter, a former Disney animator who got fired for trying to push the company to experiment with computer animation. He created a CGI short entitled ''The Adventures of Andre and Wally B'' in his downtime, with the assistance of computer genius Ed Catmull.
