Jobs's main role at Pixar was deal making, in which his natural intensity was an asset.
Soon after the release of Toy Story, he clashed with Jeffrey Katzenberg,
who had left Disney in the summer of 1994 and joined with Steven Spielberg and David Geffen to start DreamWorks SKG.
Jobs believed that his Pixar team had told Katzenberg, while he was still at Disney, about its proposed second movie, A Bug's Life,
and that he had then stolen the idea of an animated insect movie when he decided to produce Antz at DreamWorks.
"When Jeffrey was still running Disney animation, we pitched him on A Bug's Life," Jobs said.
"In sixty years of animation history, nobody had thought of doing an animated movie about insects, until Lasseter.
It was one of his brilliant creative sparks.
And Jeffrey left and went to DreamWorks and all of a sudden had this idea for an animated movie about -- Oh!—insects.
And he pretended he'd never heard the pitch. He lied. He lied through his teeth."
