John Ratzenberger is best known for playing mail carrier 'Cliff Calvin' 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 The Empire Strikes Back" and those same fans will recognize him from another huge franchise; "Superman 1 & 2"! Horror fans remember him from "House II" and "Motel Hell", films which are on the oposite side of the spectrum when it come sto what kids 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 off all ages for his various roles in the Disney/Pixar animated films!
