OOOooooooh! Oooh oooh oooh. The next Pixar film, The Incredibles, is being directed and written by Brad Bird! Oooooh!
For those of you who don't recognise the name, that's Brad The Iron Giant Bird. And if you haven't seen The Iron Giant, drop whatever it is you're doing at once and run out and rent/buy/watch it. (Or make an appointment with my social secretary, if you're near me.)
P.S. Finding Nemo pretty much lived up to my expectations. It was fun seeing how many of the actors I could identify by voice before the credits rolled (for the record: Willem Dafoe, Bruce Spence, and the utterly inimitable Austin Pendleton).

When did you get a social secretary?
Uh... yes! Yes, indeed, I do. Pay no attention to the fact that he looks just like me, and that you've never seen both of us at the same time. :-)

I loved the iron giant! Isn't Brad Bird also associated somehow with The Simpsons?

Yep. He directed "Krusty Gets Busted," the first-ever Krusty episode.
He's also the guy who originated Family Dog as a one-off, though he didn't work on the weekly series spun off for that show.
