On a very special Asterixar podcast, we discuss John Lasseter (chief creative officer) taking a leave of absence from Pixar before we get into the meat of Monsters University. Plus the debut of a brand new segment: The Ratzenberger Report. Come hear us give it the ole college try!

A very wise man has crafted a theory about a formula, ever present in Disney animated films and doubly so in Pixar movies of late. The Grumpy/Spunky formula paints the picture of an eager main character teaming up with a grounded reluctant companion journeying to a far off destination to affect some plot important change in the prior. Coco, much like Inside Out and Moana before it, once again sets its protagonist out on a seemingly similar journey, but what follows is one of the best crafted family focused tearjerkers in years.
In this world nothing can be said to be certain, except death and taxes and Pixar making movies about anthropomorphic toys. Toy Story 3 is easily the heaviest in the series to date so get ready for a discussion about what lies beyond this ethereal plane for men of plastic and flesh. The Two Asterixar Crew is here to guide you towards the light so close your eyes and accept the inevitable!
Here the Asterixar buddies talk about two more Asterixar Shorts: La Luna and The Blue Umbrella. More importantly we ask the question “Do Italians like Mario?” and “Why do Italians love yelling so much?” (Don’t worry, we’re mostly Italian). So pop on in for a quick check in with your favorite Pixar pedantics!
Here’s the one you’ve all been waiting for! The Asterixar buds are finally joined by the entire Cugini clan. With brothers Chris and Michael, we learn about the real physics behind 2009’s Up, plus some hints about future podcast projects. Don’t be a grumpy widower, be more like a dog with the gift of human speech and join in the fun!
