Disney Fact #106

You probably know by now that John Lasseter is my hero. I could go on and on about his wonderfulness, but since I mention him on this blog pretty regularly, I’ll resist!

One of the reasons why I admire him so much is because of his energy. You can literally feel his excitement and passion for Pixar in his interviews. So when I learned that he used to work at Disney, I wondered if maybe I had ever run into him as a kid.


Lasseter’s first job with Disney was as a skipper on the Jungle Cruise attraction! But before I go through my old albums to see if Lasseter makes a cameo in my childhood years, I’ll share with you this video I discovered of Lasseter retelling his favorite jokes from his skipper days! Enjoy!
