This weekend, Pepperdine University bestowed an honorary Doctorate upon Pixar's John Lasseter. This news comes courtesy of his lifelong friend, who posted this photograph on Flikr under the name "davedoo." Cartoon Brew then picked up on the news, and now you're reading it here. Congratulations on the Doctorate, and here's hoping for many more!
