Behind the scenes: Pixar Studios

Above: And this one's tucked away in the other corner

Above: At Pixar, even the toilets are whimsical. Woody for the men...

Above: And Bo Peep for the ladies

Above: Comedian / actor Jeff Garlin, discussing his role as Buttercup the Unicorn in both Toy Story 3 the movie and the game. Here, he's uttering a naughty word we're pretty sure didn't make it into the final cut

Above: The Pixar gift shop, where many a games journalist went broke

Above: See?

Above: Swag bags on the way out

Above: These Cars wish you farewell on the left of the exit

Above: Bye, Pixar. See you in our dreams

    My apologies about the 'Pixar shutting down' business. I had heard it from a colleague who claimed to have a reference and posted my previous comment before I could confirm it for myself. It's not true. Sorry for the scare, it was rather stupid of me...

    That place looks awesome, I would love to visit it sometime

    I have never been jealous of pixar employess cause although it cool and all i didnt want to go into films, but to work in a place like that...sooo amazing!!! Whereas i stuck at tesco at min- we used to have a pool table in staff room, but i guess it proved too much fun so they took it away- cheap skates! am i understanding correctly? they have a theatre there to watch pixar films? good enough reason to stay late at work :P

    hey Charlie, how hard was to actually concentrate on the game while being at MOTHAFRUKINGPIXAR?
  • Shrimpandwhitewine - May 10, 2010 4:43 p.m.

    Too cool...

    OMFG! Did Chris cry from joy/overstimulation at any point during this? Did he skip his nap and get so tuckered out during the day that he fell asleep with his juice box in his hand in the car ride back?

    I've always loved Luxo.

    I am very jealous. I made a fan art picture in the forums for you guys!! captcha preppie interview

    What a cool place to visit! Looks like you guys had a blast at Pixar. Pixar has really made an awesome, fun place to work at. So much to see and do there. Good feature Charlie!
  • iluvmyDS - May 9, 2010 10 p.m.

    That has got to be one of the coolest places to work. Hell, even just visiting seems awesome.

    DO WANT!

    @NotBraze Pixar didn't make Doug? Are you telling me I'll never see Patty Mayonnaise or Skeeter in computer generated 3D?!? Anyhoo, thanks for catching the misspell. It's been corrected and all that.
  • supercool117 - May 9, 2010 6:57 p.m.

    So freakin awesome. I just ran out and bought Toy Story 2 because this reminded me how behind I am with Pixar movies. I really hope Toy Story 3 is awesome in both movie and game forms
  • Fraught - May 9, 2010 6:03 p.m.

    @NotBraze, thank the heavens. I was very, VERY suspicious about it as well, I wasn't really betting much on his info being real, really. And "Dug" in the opening paragraph? What? Was that directed at my post? Because the closest to that that I can see, is "Bug's Life" and that is a Pixar movie, so yeah.

    "My master made me this collar so that I may talkSQUIRREL!!!...Hi there!" I can't believe you guys got that dog.
  • Hurricrane - May 9, 2010 4:29 p.m.

    pure awesomeness... god I would love to work there
  • NotBraze - May 9, 2010 4:26 p.m.

    @Fraught I'm not sure where slimjim got his info but I can assure you it's false. Pixar will still be making movies for the foreseeable future. Also, by the way, not to nitpick, but I think you meant Dug in the opening paragraph. Doug is an old Nickelodeon cartoon. I know, I know, animation nerd, I'll go back to my basement.

    ...Jealosy rising.

    Just imagine it. People actually also GET PAID for working in there.
