Katzenberg had been impressed with Jobs's focus on keeping costs under control.
"Even in the early budgeting process, Steve was very eager to do it as efficiently as possible," he said.
But the $17 million production budget was proving inadequate,
especially given the major revision that was necessary after Katzenberg had pushed them to make Woody too edgy.
So Jobs demanded more in order to complete the film right.
"Listen, we made a deal," Katzenberg told him. "We gave you business control, and you agreed to do it for the amount we offered."
Jobs was furious. He would call Katzenberg by phone or fly down to visit him and be,
in Katzenberg's words, "as wildly relentless as only Steve can be."
Jobs insisted that Disney was liable for the cost overruns
because Katzenberg had so badly mangled the original concept that it required extra work to restore things.
"Wait a minute!" Katzenberg shot back. "We were helping you.
You got the benefit of our creative help, and now you want us to pay you for that."
It was a case of two control freaks arguing about who was doing the other a favor.
