Tex is a robot character. Although he did not appear in a Pixar feature or short film, he was created by John Lasseter for Lucasfilm's THX sound system, which partnered with and certified Pixar films from 1995 to 2007. He appeared in three THX trailers. The first was released in 1995 (alongside Toy Story). The second and third promos were released in 2001 and 2006, respectively. While he does not have any comprehensible dialogue, his groans and muffled sounds were provided by Lasseter.
