What they said:

"He's become a part of our cultural history by playing the lovable postman, Cliff Clavin, on the classic sitcom "Cheers" -- but that's hardly keeping actor John Ratzenberger from delivering cheers to movie audiences, too.

That's because Ratzenberger, 56, has become a mainstay in the computer-animated world of Pixar Animation Studios/Walt Disney Pictures, holding the distinction of being the only actor to have voiced roles in all five of the studios' productions.

Ratzenberger voiced Hamm the Piggy Bank in the two "Toy Story" films, as well as ringmaster P.T. Flea in "A Bug's Life" and Yeti -- the abominable snowman with a heart -- in "Monster's Inc."

i like ratz's voice...but im a little tired of hearing it in each film...its starting to detract from the character, and IMO finding nemo was weak on that compared to monsters or toy story anyway....its a little trick thats wearing thin.

he's been described as their lucky charm. he's been there from the beginning, and I'll be sad the day that tradition is broken.

I hope they keep using him. His voice is distinctive but always lovable....and honestly it's not like each movie he has been in he has ditracted from it in any way.
