Pixar director Lee Unkrich on 1987 game show

From the Internet time capsule is this episode of Win, Lose, or Draw in 1987, with one of the contestants being Lee Unkrich wearing an amazing sweater that out-Cosbys Bill Cosby’s sweaters. At the time of the show, as he explains, Lee was an aspiring applicant to USC’s film program. He seemed pretty confident in his acceptance chances and his illustration skill is clearly evident in this show. It’s not even a fair contest at the end. In case you’re wondering why I’m talking about this guy, Lee would later grow up to direct MONSTERS INC., FINDING NEMO, TOY STORY 2 and TOY STORY 3.
