Sex & Nudity


A mild reference is made by Bo Peep, however this will fly rght over children's heads

Bo and Woody kiss off-screen, however you can hear smooching sounds. Later Woody comes back with lip marks on his face.

Violence & Gore


Sid is a pint-sized Unabomber wannabe. He has an "I (heart) explosives" sticker in his room. And we hear him cackle maniacally on several occasions. His handiwork makes for some of the most horrific examples of toy abuse ever conceived of by a shifty-eyed computer animator. He blows up a defenseless soldier toy with a bottle rocket. He replaces the head of one of his sisters dolls with that of a toy pterodactyl. The toys in Sid's rooms are creepy, Dr. Moreau-like creations. Once, he even starts to burn Woody's "skin" with a magnifier.

When the toys team up with Woody to frighten Sid out of his wits, several burnt dolls and mangled toy soldiers rise from the sandbox like B-movie zombies, staggering toward the boy with nails protruding out of their heads or limbs dangling from their bodies.

Andy's none-too-gentle with his toys, either, sending Woody flying down a stairway banister or soaring through the air.

Buzz loses an arm when he tries to fly out an open window and instead bounces down a flight of stairs. He and Woody have a serious brawl underneath a car at a gas station, too, and Andy's toys hurl Woody out of a moving van. An Etch A Sketch also threatens Woody with a lynching, hastily sketching an old-fashioned noose. Woody gets bonked on the head by a tool box (and all its accompanying tools).

The pizza restaurant features a "Whack an Alien" game just like the popular "Whack a Mole," only with critters popping out of a simulated, blood-drenched chest.



At worst, "idiot," "stupid," "bozo," "dirt bag" and "creep" are used as insults. Woody does tell Buzz hed have a choice word or two for him, but he cant say them because there are preschool toys present. It is implied that a character calls another an "A**kisser" but it is never really said.


Woody calls Buzz "Mr. Lightbeer" once used as an alcoholic term. Buzz weirdly gets tipsy at the tea party. "I think youve had enough tea for today," Woody says, pulling the buzzed Lightyear away.


The scenes where Sid blows up and mangles his own toys could be slightly intense and menacing for some.

Several of Sid's toys, most of which are broken and pulled apart, are frightening.

The scene where Sid switches the parts of a toy with another (which has the head of a Pterodactyl, and the body of a doll), along with the atmosphere and themes of Sid's room are VERY creepy.

Sid's dog, Buster chases and chews toys in some scenes, and for a brief moment, the dog is shown writhing one around in its mouth viciously and brutally. Intense.

The ensuing chase at the end is very edgy and suspenseful.

12/50 - Suitable for all ages
