His purchase, and further investment in, PIXAR brought us Toy Story and all the rest of the award winning animated feature-length films the company produced: A Bug’s Life in 1998, Toy Story 2 in 1999, Monsters, Inc. in 2001, Finding Nemo in 2003, The Incredibles in 2004, Cars in 2006, Ratatouille in 2007, WALL-E in 2008, Up in 2009, Toy Story 3 in 2010, and Cars 2 in 2011.

Here is one of the first short films they did,
