1) The movies' humour is self-contained instead of resorting to Family Guy levels of leeching off of the last fourty years of pop culture.
2) The humour and storytelling actually respects its audience instead of making fart jokes to distract the kids and sexual innuendo to pander to the adults.
3) Celebrity voice actors play character instead of playing cartoon versions of themselves.
Pixar movies basicly care more about every aspect of there films, they have some of the best people in every field, fantastic charecter designers, writers, animators, set designers, directors etc.
It can pretty easily be summed up in looking at the time between shreks and the time between new pixar movies. They spend so much more time on every aspect.
