The toys are mistakenly delivered to a day-care center instead of the attic right before Andy leaves for college, and it's up to Woody to convince the other toys that they weren't abandoned and to return home.
In order to power the city, monsters have to scare children so that they scream. However, the children are toxic to the monsters, and after a child gets through, 2 monsters realize things may not be what they think.
A little boy named Andy loves to be in his room, playing with his toys, especially his doll named "Woody". But, what do the toys do when Andy is not with them, they come to life. Woody believes that he has life (as a toy) good. However, he must worry about Andy's family moving, and what Woody does not know is about Andy's birthday party. Woody does not realize that Andy's mother gave him an action figure known as Buzz Lightyear, who does not believe that he is a toy, and quickly becomes Andy's new favorite toy. Woody, who is now consumed with jealousy, tries to get rid of Buzz. Then, both Woody and Buzz are now lost. They must find a way to get back to Andy before he moves without them, but they will have to pass through a ruthless toy killer, Sid Phillips. Written by
The Jim Henson Co. produced the Muppet's TV movie The Christmas Toy (1986), about toys who come to life when their human owners aren't around. In it, Rugby the Tiger becomes jealous when he discovers he's about to be replaced as the children's favorite toy, and inadvertently releases the new toy, Meteora: Queen of the Asteroids, who doesn't realize she's a toy and thinks she's landed among aliens. It's then up to Rugby and the other toys to convince her to accept her role as Christmas Toy and get back in her present before Christmas morning.
The Jim Henson Company was later bought by Disney, like Pixar, who created Toy Story (1995). See more »
Toward the end of the movie when Woody opens the moving van door and is hanging on it you can clearly see in the background Scud trying to get Buzz from underneath the car, but right after Woody spots the box he needs to look in we are shown a scene of Scud struggling with Buzz who is at this point thrown under the car.

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). See more »
Proof that Pixar not only cares about the quality of their work,they care about our kids.
Though I am not a big fan of computer animation,I have to give the folks at Pixar credit.This brand of animation is nothing short of brilliant.The attention to detail,such as eye and body movement is quite remarkable.Computers allow them to make their characters as close to human like as possible,something we have never seen in traditional hand drawn animation,though the latter will always be the closest to my heart.Combine this excellence with a genuinely good story idea and a top notch voice cast and the result is good family entertainment.It's obvious that the people at Pixar are not only caring perfectionists when it comes to film making,but they care about our kids,something rarely seen today.Highly recommended for any home library.
