question of the day: Are Pixar movies released too close together for each of them to get classic status?

I have a QOTD/QOTW suggestion: are pixar great movies too many and released too close together for each of them to get classic status?

As a reminder, here’s a list of every Pixar feature with its release date:

Toy Story (Nov 1995)
A Bug’s Life (Nov 1998)
Toy Story 2 (Nov 1999)
Monsters, Inc. (Nov 2001)
Finding Nemo (May 2003)
The Incredibles (Nov 2004)
Cars (Jun 2006)
Ratatouille (Jun 2007)
Wall-E (Jun 2008)
Up (May 2009)
Toy Story 3 (Jun 2010)
Cars 2 (Jun 2011)
Brave (Jun 2012)

Interestingly, Dardo’s email has been hanging around in my to-be-used folder since November 2010, before Cars 2 disappointed critics and audiences, and before Brave garnered less than totally ecstatic reviews from some critics. What we also see in the interim snce Dardo wondered about Pixar is that we’ve now had seven uninterrupted years of a Pixar-flick-per-year, with their movies spaced a little further apart prior to that.

Are Pixar movies released too close together for each of them to get classic status? Is Pixar working too fast? Is its talent stretched too thin? Or is Pixar doing just fine?

(If you have a suggestion for a QOTD, feel free to email me. Responses to this QOTD sent by email will be ignored; please post your responses here.)
