Brent Schlender shares a personal story about how Steve Jobs test screened Toy Story:

The most enlightening meetings often were ones that Steve himself initiated, usually with a telephone call to my home out of the blue and always with a very specific purpose in mind. One Saturday morning in May 1995, he rang up and asked me to grab my two grade-school-age daughters and bring them over to his house in Palo Alto right away. "I'm watching Reed this morning, and I've got something cool to show them" was all he would say. When we arrived, 3-year-old Reed Jobs greeted us at the kitchen door, wrapped in blue and red silk scarves and screeching, "I'm a witch!!!" After making some popcorn and getting the kids some juice, Steve led us into the den and slapped a VHS cassette into the player. The music swelled and a stream of illegible, pencil-drawn storyboards simulating the opening credits of a movie flashed on the screen. And then, suddenly, an entirely new kind of animation burst forth in full color. All three kids were spellbound, even though the full animation had been completed for only half the movie. The soundtrack was finished, but entire scenes were only partially animated or in storyboard form. It turned out that this was an early cut of Toy Story, the movie that would put Pixar on the map after its premiere six months later. The board of directors hadn't even seen this much of it. But this was market research, Steve Jobs-style. When it was over, he asked my kids (not me), "Whaddya think? Is it as good as Pocahontas?" Greta and Fernanda nodded vigorously. "Well, then, is it as good as The Lion King?" Fernanda replied, "I won't be able to make up my mind until I see Toy Story five or six more times."
