However, the writers soon realized that Tinny was too old-fashioned to be a child's favorite toy. So he was replaced with a miniature toy astronaut initially named Lunar Larry and later Tempus from Morph. Eventually he became taller and was renamed Buzz Lightyear. The ventriloquist dummy, meanwhile, also changed and evolved; becoming less mean spirited and eventually turning into a cowboy rag doll named Woody.
