Award Winning Actor John Ratzenberger
John Ratzenberger is an American actor, voice actor, and entrepreneur. You know him from his roles as Cliff Clavin in Cheers, Pixar Animation Studios’ films, notably Hamm the Piggy Bank in the Toy Story, Mack the Truck in Cars and his hit show Made In America on the Travel Channel where he showcased the people behind the products made in the USA.
He has worked on feature films like Superman and Star Wars: Episode V – The Empire Strikes Back. He’s also the only actor to voice a role in every Pixar film. Through his steady work, John Ratzenberger has been listed as the 6th most successful actor of all time in terms of box office receipts.
John Ratzenberger’s absolute passion is America and he is an advocate for re-introducing trade, mechanics, shop, and carpentry skills back into schools so that we can truly marry human talent and skill to today’s innovative society to create a better America.
In April 2015 John donated $1 million to the State of Georgia as a part of a National Educational Initiative to revive shop classes in schools. John says that he hopes his legacy, when people fall upon his name one hundred years from now, is not that he was Cliff from Cheers, or Mack the Truck in a Pixar film, but that he was that guy who advocated for empowering individuals to leave America better than they found it.
