John Ratzenberger

Booth 011

John Ratzenberger is best known for playing mail carrier Cliff Clavin on one of the most popular sitcoms of all time “Cheers.” He had read for the part of Norm Peterson, but after the audition, he could tell they weren’t going to give him the part. Sensing an opportunity, he asked if they had written a “bar know-it-all”, which the producers decided was a great idea. Cliff became known for his outlandish stories of plausible half‐truths, irrelevant trivia, and ignorant misinformation, and was known for being an overall pretentious blowhard.

Star Wars fans world wide know John for his role as ‘Major Derlin’ as seen in Star Wars: Episode V–The Empire Strikes Back and those same fans will recognize him from another huge franchise; Superman and Superman II! Horror fans remember him from House II: The Second Story and Motel Hell, films which are on the opposite side of the spectrum when it comes to what kids young and old know him for today!

John’s popularity has crossed over from the sitcom, Sci-Fi and fantasy worlds into another huge demographic, being recognized by kids of all ages for his various roles in the Disney/Pixar animated films!  John is the only actor to voice a character in every single Pixar film ever made. A running “gag” that he and director John Lasseter decided on together. John never tells fans which character he voices, he wants them to be surprised and figure it out for themselves when they see the film. John can currently be heard in the new film Coco and has reprised his character’s role for The Incredibles 2!
