A cowboy doll is profoundly threatened and jealous when a new spaceman figure supplants him as top toy in a boy's room.
Buzz' call of "To infinity and beyond!" is a nod to the film 2001: A Space Odyssey (1968). In 2001, once the spaceship Discovery reaches its destination, the title appears: "Jupiter and beyond infinity."
All right, everyone! This... is a stick-up. Don't anybody move! Now empty that safe!
Andy: Ooh, hoo hoo! Money, money, money!
Andy: Stop it! Stop it, you mean old potato!
Andy: Quiet, Bo Peep! Or your sheep get run over!
Andy: Help! Baaa! Help us!
Andy: Oh no! Not my sheep! ...
Throughout the film, an important plot point in the film is that Andy's family is moving within days. This fact is mentioned when Woody tells the toys that there is one week left before moving day and there are repeated mentions of the moving in progress throughout the film which takes place over at least a few days to a week. Yet, during the "Strange Things Are Happening To Me" sequence in which Woody sees Buzz becoming the dominant toy in Andy's room, Andy's mom has gone through the trouble of changing the wallpaper in Andy's room from cowboy-themed to spaceman-themed. Generally, there would be no point in such a dramatic decoration change if the family is planning to move out of the home within days of Andy getting Buzz for his birthday.
This is the first Pixar film to feature the "Production Babies" section, which lists babies born to the crew members during production. This would become a trademark in the following years, in films like A Bug's Life (1998), Toy Story 2 (1999), Monsters, Inc. (2001) and Finding Nemo (2003).
For various international releases, Buzz Lightyear's packaging was rewritten in the language of the country of release (German for Germany, Swedish for Sweden, French for France, Japanese for Japan etc.)
