* WhiteAndGreyMorality: As mentioned in WellIntentionedExtremist, the antagonists that show up in most Pixar movie are rarely straight up evil. In ''WesternAnimation/ToyStory'', Sid is a destructive kid who has no idea that he's harming sentient beings, and would grow up to a normal adult by the 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 the sake of it. [[spoiler:When he dies, the spirit of the man he once was thanked the main characters for freeing him from the curse]]. In ''WesternAnimation/MonstersUniversity'', the heroes faced off against a group of {{Jerk Jock}}s, but they're generally pretty harmless and is depicted more as an obstacle the heroes have to surpass to win the Scarer Games than an actual force of evil.

Averted pretty hard in ''WesternAnimation/TheIncredibles'', however, as Syndrome has personally murdered or caused the death of literally ''dozens'' of supers, just to spite them for having superpowers.

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 [[note]]''WesternAnimation/ToyStory'', ''WesternAnimation/ABugsLife'', ''WesternAnimation/{{Cars 2}}'' and ''The Good Dinosaur''[[/note]] 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 films, ''WesternAnimation/ToyStory3'' and ''WesternAnimation/FindingDory'', made over a billion dollars worldwide [[note]]''Toy Story 3'' became 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[[/note]]. 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 is currently the second largest opening for an original film 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.

* BrokenStreak:
** After 11 consecutive films with a Certified Fresh rating on RottenTomatoes, ''[[WesternAnimation/{{Cars}} Cars 2]]'' is released to 39% on RT. Cue InternetBackdraft.
** Also, ever since the Academy Awards established the "Best Animated Feature" category in 2001, Pixar films have been inevitably nominated... until ''Cars 2''.
** ''WesternAnimation/InsideOut'', facing competition with ''Film/JurassicWorld'', was the first Pixar film to not debut at #1 at the box office… though it still broke box office records for Pixar, being their third-highest grosser and the highest non-sequel or remake opening of all time (it reached the #1 spot on its third week). However, follow-up ''WesternAnimation/TheGoodDinosaur'' didn't reach the top spot at all and became the first Pixar film to be declared a theatrical BoxOfficeBomb.

** ''WesternAnimation/InsideOut'', facing competition with ''Film/JurassicWorld'',
''WesternAnimation/{{Cars 2}}'' was the first--and so far, only--movie to be met with widely-negative reception from both critics and audiences. However, it still did well at the box office in spite of that, [[GermansLoveDavidHasselhoff and the sequel actually outdid the original at the worldwide box office]].
** Both of Pixar's 2015 movies.
*** ''WesternAnimation/InsideOut'' became their
first Pixar film to not debut open at #1 at the box office… though it still broke North American box office records (due to heavy competition from ''Film/JurassicWorld''), although it did have the biggest opening ever for Pixar, being their third-highest grosser and the highest a non-sequel or remake opening of all time (it reached movie and went on to do very well.

The film becoming a theatrical BoxOfficeBomb.BoxOfficeBomb was mitigated by the success of ''Inside Out'', and the smash hit of their immediate follow-up (''WesternAnimation/FindingDory'') allowed the company to take such a blow in stride.

** ''WesternAnimation/ToyStory'' (1995) (First {{Creator/Disney}}[=/=]Pixar project. Re-released in 3-D in theaters in October 2009)[[labelnote:*]]This movie featured a special Pixar-designed Walt Disney Pictures logo: It starts with the camera zooming out the gates of a CGI castle, followed by the standard opening with the corporate signature and "Pictures" flashing in and the starburst going in an arc over the castle from right to left; a different, march-band type jingle played instead of the "[[Disney/{{Pinocchio}} When You Wish Upon A Star"]] jingle, which segways into the opening of the movie. The Pixar logo is notable for appearing at the ''end'' of the movie as opposed to the beginning.[[/labelnote]]

And finally, things come full circle with Disney's acquisition of Lucasfilm, bringing it under the same umbrella as its own former division. Though, with John Lasseter in charge, you could look at it as Pixar itself now owning its former owner (kinda like how SBC Communications ultimately bought former owner AT&T).

AT&T or how Creator/{{Viacom}} briefly owned former owner Creator/{{CBS}}).

At the same time, John Lasseter continued to use CGI to make short films and showed them around at conventions, specifically the computer-graphics convention SIGGRAPH. While other people were showing landscapes and technical demos, Lasseter's short ''WesternAnimation/LuxoJr'' was a masterpiece in storytelling that established several new CGI tricks and demonstrated the narrative ability of the art. [[PixarShorts Pixar's subsequent shorts]] secured their status as the leader in computer animation.
