John Deszo Ratzenberger is an American actor, voice actor, and entrepreneur who is the voice of Fritz, the mind constuction worker who appearantly supervised the installation of the new control panal in Headquarters.
He is best known for his role as "Cliff Clavin" on the NBC sitcom Cheers. He has also voiced characters in all the Pixar features, with at least one performance on a Disney live-action film.

The running gag of Ratzenberger portraying at least one character in every Pixar movie is referenced during the end credits of Cars when "Mack" watches the Cars parodies of previous Pixar movies, and he thinks that whoever did the voice of "Hamm", "P.T. Flea", and the "Yeti" (all in car form) were great actors until he realized it was the same voice actor in all those movies and asks, "What kind of a cut-rate production is this?"
