There is only one actor who has voiced a character in every single Pixar feature film, and that’s John Ratzenberger. It’s quite an impressive feat. So we wanted to celebrate this accomplishment by ranking each of his roles (which are all pretty great):
10. Gordon the Guard – Brave
If only we all had guards like Gordon to announce the arrival of our fellow tribes. And he could call us “milords and miladies.” That would be pretty fun.
9. Construction Foreman Tom – Up
Tom seems like a lovable guy (and we’re sure he is), but he tells Carl that he can take his house “off his hands” for him. We all know what happens after that.
8. Mack – Cars 1, 2
When it comes to long road trips, it’s always nice to have a cheery friend like Mack around. He’s so nice that we can’t even really be upset when he loses Lightning on the road.
7. John – WALL•E
We’re a fan of John mainly because he wants to be friends with WALL•E just as much as we do.
6. Fish School – Finding Nemo
We’d never be bored with these fish around. Seriously, we could play charades with them for a really long time, and it would be great.
5. Mustafa – Ratatouille
John Ratzenberger with a French accent. It doesn’t get much better than that.
4. The Abominable Snowman – Monsters, Inc and Monsters University
What a nice guy the abominable snowman turned out to be. He makes lemon-flavored snow cones and everything! Also, his cameo in Monsters University is one of our favorites.
3. The Underminer – The Incredibles
The Underminer holds so much potential as a villain. We’ve always secretly hoped to see him dig his way into another film. Maybe it’ll happen in the next film with The Incredibles? We can only hope.
2. P.T. Flea – A Bug’s Life
It was really hard not to rank this role at the top. P.T. Flea is probably the most dynamic of John Ratzenberger’s Pixar roles. This circus ringmaster goes from slight bad guy who only cares about money to slight good guy who helps get rid of the grasshoppers. Way to go, P.T.
1. Hamm – Toy Story 1, 2, 3
And there’s no other place for this guy than at the top of the list. He’s got perfect comedic timing and loves to ham it up among friends. What a character.
