How necessary does the information about logos really seem? I didn't add each Wall of Text myself, but I did encase each one in a note. However, I do wonder whether or not the asterisks make the page any less attractive (and if replacing each with the word "note" would look even worse).

"John Lasseter on why Pixar hasn't had a female main character before Brave: "We're a bunch of guys.""

Wow...that's really sad. So Lasseter thinks it's natural for a group of men to ignore female leads unless it's pointed out to them? Again, I don't know what else to describe it as (aside from Unfortunate Implications) it's just...really sad.

I'm thinking maybe it's time to make a "Trivia" subpage.

The following things would in that case be moved to trivia (I think; I didn't do a thorough check):

I am aware that Administrivia.What Goes Where On The Wiki says that trivia for creators can go on their main pages, and that there's no sense in splitting the pages. However, Administrivia.Creator Page Guidelines states that it is okay to put the trivia on the "Trivia" subpage, "as appropriate".

I'm inclined to agree with the latter, especially since there is so much trivia.

What do you think?

Running gag: "He touched the butt" in The Incredibles, Brave, and Finding Nemo.

Moved from main. I'm sure there's a trope for it.

Isn't the description gushing a bit too much?
09:50:58 AM Jun 30th 2011
From what I've read, yes. Very much so.

As much as it would get on everyone's bad side, You Could Always Edit It Yourself.

Why should it? You aren't supposed to have the page be drenched in YMMV, anyway.

Why, in some of the trope descriptions, is the word film being blue-linked? And it's not to one of their works, the word "film" itself is randomly being given a blue-link. Is that even necessary?

They also seem to be a very personal and humble company. There's the case of the young woman who put a video of herself crying at a trailer of Wall-E on the Internet, which tickled the employees to the point where they invited her first to the wrap party, then to a tour, without promoting this with any sort of "Look, world, we're awesome!" publicity. And then there's 10-year-old Colby Curtin, a young girl who was dying of vascular cancer; her dying wish was to see the movie "Up", so a family friend cold-called Pixar, which eventually led to them flying out an employee with a specially-pressed DVD for a private screening of the film just hours before the young girl passed away. Again, Pixar did this without any promotion or comments to the press in any way.

I haven't got anything against Pixar; I love Pixar. But if they didn't do these things for the publicity, then how do we know about all these kind-hearted things?

WRT the girl with cancer, It was reported a while back by many papers in Florida (the girl's home state), but Pixar has issued no comment on the story despite requests. The fact that they're keeping mum about it says a great deal (to me at least).

Just curious...Since Pixar already has CMOA and CMOF pages separate from Disney, can we give it a separate CMOH and Tear Jerker Page as well?
03:31:11 PM Jun 22nd 2010
Considering it's Pixar, I don't see why they shouldn't!
04:36:49 PM Jun 22nd 2010
Great! How do we make one?

Now we just need someone to write up the description and add in the examples. I'm not too good at that, so I probably shouldn't. ^^;

That's the problem - I don't know how to make a separate heartwarming page :(
10:30:20 AM Jun 23rd 2010
Don't worry. I figured it out.

Wait, so Elastigirl and Dory aren't leads?
10:56:31 PM Jul 21st 2010
I'm not sure about Elastigirl but Dory isnt.

"Newt (2012) Reported to have been canceled. From what this troper's heard, imagine The Princess and the Frog if the two leads always were amphibians and the last of their kind. "

Does anybody spot what is funny in this?

Frogs are amphibians.

Except he's saying "if the two leads always were amphibians".

(being a slowpoke, but) According to The Other Wiki:

When Newt was first announced in April 2008, the film was planned to be released in June 2012, to be followed by the fantasy film The Bear and the Bow. Two years later, Disney/Pixar announced that, instead, The Bear and the Bow would be released first, under the new name Brave, with a sequel to the 2001 Pixar feature Monsters, Inc. following later that year. At the April 2010 announcement, Disney/Pixar did not provide an updated release date for Newt. According to, Newt has been canceled.
