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, two 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 carpet in Sid's house is modeled after the carpet in the Overlook Hotel in The Shining (1980). The Shining is Editor Lee Unkrich's favorite movie. When Buzz gets wacky at the "tea party" he calls himself Mrs. Nesbit. The name of one of Pete's grade school teachers and in college, he had a Toyota pickup truck pretty much like the one the pizza delivery guys used. It too had a "YO" on the gate. See more »
When Buzz and Woody are in the gas station, the close up shot of Woody shows the moon over his right shoulder as a crescent shaped like the letter "C", but backwards as if in a mirror. When the shot changes to Buzz, the moon's reflection in his helmet is also shaped like a backward facing "C" instead of a forwards facing one. See more »
[playing with and mimicking the voices of his toys; holding Mr. Potato Head]
All right, everyone! This... is a stick-up. Don't anybody move! Now empty that safe!
[empties Hamm the piggy bank and coins fall out]
Ooh, hoo hoo! Money, money, money!
[has Potato Head "kiss" the money; as Bo Peep]
Stop it! Stop it, you mean old potato!

Quiet, Bo Peep! Or your sheep get run over!

Help! Baaa! Help us!

In the DVD version, when the THX logo appears it gets burned out like a flashlight then a robot comes out of the logo, fixes it, and the THX sound resumes and the robot goes back inside it. See more »
A very sweet and fun movie. TOY STORY has great computer animation. A simple yet well told story is also added as well. The voice overs are top notch and everyone gets a fair share in this movie. PIXAR has done a good job placing itself on the map.
Set in Andy's room and before the family moves, his mother decides to throw a birthday party for the young lad. Andy's toys all have a conscience and are led by his favorite, Woody. But alas, the big new toy from the party unknowingly takes Woody's mantle.
Envy and jealousy are brought up well. So is the ignorance of Andy's toys and the loss of innocence from Buzz Lightyear. TOY STORY is well packaged exceeded only by its sequel. A good rent.
