  • Yeti in Monsters University has the shortest dialogue in all the Pixar films so far, as he has only 1 line.
  • Gordon in Brave has a few quotes at the beginning of the film. Seemingly, Ratzenberger, along with Steve Purcell, is one of the few American voice actors in the film, as everyone else is from the United Kingdom and Ireland.
  • P.T. Flea in A Bug's Life is his favorite role that he's done for Pixar.
  • Ratzenberger had a cameo in DisneyToon Studios' Cars spin-off Planes, as the voice of jet tug Harland. He also voiced Brodi Enid in the film's sequel Planes: Fire & Rescue.
  • John in WALL-E may be a caricature of Ratzenberger himself, since he shares his first name.
