While searching around for some background on Gordon Bell, I came across his 1995 Smithsonian interview. There are a bunch of good interviews there from the mid-90s, including Mark Andreesen and Steve Jobs.

We are finishing up making the world's first computer animated feature film. Pixar has written it, directed it, producing it. The Walt Disney Corporation is distributing it and it's coming out this year as Walt Disney's Christmas Picture. It's coming out November 11, I believe, and its called "Toy Story." You will hear a lot about it because I think its going to be the most successful film of this year.

He was right; at $191 million, it was the top grosser of 1995.
