John Ratzenberger — the voice of Hamm in the ‘Toy Story’ franchise — says there’s an upside parents don’t think about when it comes to all the heartbreaking scenes in the films.
The actor — also known as Cliff Clavin on “Cheers” before his days as a talking piggy bank — joined “TMZ Live” Friday to talk about the newly released “Toy Story 4” … and he answered a serious question in an unexpected and hilarious way.
He makes a good point, though — sadness is part of life, so maybe it’s best to have children learn to work through it before an inevitable death of a grandparent.
Parents who aren’t so sure can take solace, though … Ratzenberger says the 4th installment isn’t that sad.
“Toy Story 4” is out everywhere, and is on pace to rake in about $140 million for the weekend. Nothing sad about that, especially for Disney.
