When writer-producer Terry Rossio first visited Disney's brand new, state-of-the-art animation studio, he couldn't help but notice something unusual. "There's a high chain link fence surrounding the Disney animation building in Burbank, with prison-style barbed wire along the top of the fence. The barbed wire slopes.. inward, to keep valued animators from escaping to other studios." 

["All windows open onto a hallway, so nobody gets natural light," Rossio added. "Yes, somehow, the Disney animation building managed to get designed in such a way that the ping-pong players in the hallway get the best light. What were they thinking?"]
