This spectacular success made Jobs so important to Disney that a crisis occurred when the company CEO, Michael Eisner, insulted Pixar, and by extension Jobs, in 2003 when he publicly denigrated the upcoming film, ''Disney/FindingNemo'', as a sure flop bound to take them down a peg. When that film became yet another critically hailed smash hit that topped all the others just as Pixar's contract with Disney was about to expire, Jobs, who loathed Eisner even before that insult, was ready to walk away and entertain the certain flood of offers with rival film companies. To prevent that corporate disaster, on top of other complaints about Eisner's arrogant incompetence, Disney investors rose up to fire Eisner in part to placate Jobs. Furthermore, when the new CEO decided to then outright purchased Pixar as a subsidiary in 2006, Jobs became the single biggest shareholder of the corporation while Lasseter was put in charge of all of the company's animation.

Steve Jobs has been hailed as one of the great American business innovators and leaders of modern times, with a popular culture impact at least as profound. For instance for his work running Pixar, Jobs was listed in the UsefulNotes/AcademyAwards ''In Memorium'' montage for the year of his death and is officially honored as a Disney Legend of that company's history.
