The Pixar production logo is a sequence that appears at the beginning and end of most Pixar productions movies, and features a playful desk lamp. The 1986 short film Luxo, Jr. is the source of the small hopping desk lamp included in Pixar's logo.

PITCHFORK

Answer: American Gothic is a painting by Grant Wood in the collection of the Art Institute of Chicago. It is one of the most familiar images in 20th-century American art, and has been widely parodied in American popular culture. The painting shows a farmer standing beside a woman that has been interpreted to be either his wife or his daughter. The figures were modeled by Wood's sister, Nan Wood Graham, and his dentist Dr. B.H. McKeeby. The man is holding a pitchfork, which symbolizes hard labor, and the flowers over the woman's right shoulder suggesting domesticity. Wood's inspiration came from what is now known as the American Gothic House, and his decision to paint the house along with "the kind of people I fancied should live in that house."

 BREAKOUT

Answer: Breakout is an arcade game developed and published by Atari, and released in 1976. It was built by Steve Wozniak, aided by Steve Jobs. Breakout was the basis and inspiration for certain aspects of the Apple II personal computer. Jobs was offered $750, with a bonus for every TTL (transistor-transistor logic) chip fewer than 50. He convinced Wozniak to work with him, promising to split the fee evenly. When they completed the job, they received a bonus of $5,000, which Jobs kept secret from Wozniak. Wozniak has stated he only received payment of $350; he believed for years that Atari had promised $700.

ROBIN WILLIAMS

Answer: Robin Williams voiced the Genie for SAG scale pay—$75,000—instead of his asking fee of $8 million, on condition that his name or image not be used for marketing. Disney, while not using Williams's name in commercials as per the contract, used his voice for the Genie in the commercials and used the Genie character to sell merchandise without having to pay Williams additional money. Disney attempted to assuage Williams by sending him a Pablo Picasso painting worth more than $1 million at the time, but this move failed to repair the damaged relationship, as the painting apparently really "clashed" with the Williams' home decor.
