Toy Story is one of my favourite animated films! Even as an adult I can still watch it and be entertained. This film is not only nostalgic but is relatable, emotional and a lot of fun!

Did You Know?


The movies do not explicitly state the years in which they take place, which makes the Toy Story film timeline inexact. However, references within the films can date the first movie as taking place in 1995. This means that Andy, who is turning six in the first film, was born in 1989. Woody and Andy were friends from an early age, so Woody and Andy could have first met when Andy was a baby. Even then, however, Woody is a lot older than Andy. In Toy Story 2, Woody learns that he is a collectible toy based on the 1950s television show Woody's Roundup. Along with Jessie the Cowgirl, Bullseye the Horse, and Stinky Pete the Prospector, Woody is part of a limited edition set of toys that are rare enough to be sold to a Japanese museum. The black-and-white aesthetic always suggested the 50s, and this is confirmed in Toy Story 4 by Gabby Gabby. As a result, Woody would have lived thirty to forty years of his life before meeting Andy. When Al tries to buy Woody at the yard sale in Toy Story 2, Andy's mother apologizes and takes Woody back, saying that he is "an old family toy." Andy is only around eight years old in Toy Story 2, and as his mother identifies Woody as a family toy, rather than her son's toy, that seems to signal that Woody has been in the family's possession longer than Andy has been alive. In Toy Story 2, Woody remarks, "A record player! I haven't seen one of these in ages." It's unlikely that Andy would have had a record player in the 1990s, so this would indicate that Woody does have memories of his life before. It's likely that Woody was owned by one of Andy's parents when they were children. Some fan theories go deep into Andy's missing father, and hinge on the idea that Woody once belonged to him; because Andy associates Woody with his father, he is all the more attached to the toy.


Andy: 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! Somebody ...


When Buzz is explaining to Woody under the trailer, as soon as he finishes his dialog his face turns to surprise. However, Woody doesn't start yelling at him until one second later. He was startled a full second too early.

Crazy Credits

The end credits feature various symbols representing the personalities of Woody & Buzz Lightyear. The first few of them is on the side of each of the main crew members. The rest of it goes at the top of most production categories. The credits also include the the link for the production's official website (now discontinued).
