Tex is a CGI animated flying robot mechanic character who, while not created for a Pixar feature or short film, was created by John Lasseter for the THX sound system by Lucasfilm, which is currently owned by Razer. THX had partnered with, as well as certified films released by Pixar from 1996 through 2006. He appeared in four THX trailers. The first was introduced with the theatrical release of Independence Day on July 3, 1996 - which sees him repairing the THX logo after it breaks down and stops hovering in midair. A second trailer was produced in 1997, which was introduced with the theatrical release of Monsters, Inc. in 2001, followed by a third in 2006 preceding theatrical showings of Cars. He also makes a brief appearance in the "Genesis" trailer 2019 made to celebrate THX's 35th anniversary; this was the only trailer since the first that did not precede a specific Pixar film in theatrical showings. While he doesn't have any comprehensible dialogue, his occasional grunts and mumbles were provided by Lasseter.
