How Pixar Changed Disney Animation from Within - Ed Catmull Talks Creativity When Disney bought Pixar eight years ago, the Mickey Mouse creator was coming off such lows as the non-hit Chicken Little. That made it critically important for Pixar, which had a string of hits such as Toy Story and Finding Nemo, to maintain its own creative culture, nurtured under tech genius Steve Jobs and creative director John Lasseter. But the turnaround the merger wrought on Disney’s animation house was the real surprise, says Ed Catmull, now presi...

A muppet is a cross between a marionette and a puppet, created by Jim Henson (died 1990), which lends itself to an interestin...
