Coinciding with the opening of the Pixar Place area of Disney’s Hollywood Studios in 2009, an animatronic Luxo Jr. (the Pixar lamp) was placed across from the entrance to Toy Story Midway Mania. Impressive to say the least, Luxo would come out roughly every 15-minutes and put on a little show for guests.

After a short run, Luxo stopped his appearances in April 2010. Though he suffered his share of technical difficulties, the commonly accepted reason for Luxo’s demise were the litigations between Pixar and the Luxo company regarding their use of the name and figure.
