In the scene where Andy is getting ready to go to cowboy camp, he is wearing a "Triple R Ranch" t-shirt. The Triple R Ranch, a boys' western style summer camp, was the setting for Disney's popular series Spin and Marty than ran as a serial during The Mickey Mouse Club from 1955 to 1957. See more »
When the pipe rolls toward Mr. Potato Head while crossing the road, there is one shot from behind the pipe. At the rate it was rolling, it would have smashed him right away. However, we see Potato Head freeing himself from the gum, which took a few seconds. Moreover, when Potato Head walks from the gum, he has a fair amount of time, and the pipe is further away than it originally appeared. See more »

I just saw Toy Story 2 an hour ago and I must say that, despite all the great reviews, I was still surprised about the quality....It started absolutely marvellous; one of the greatest and humorous opening sequences ever. The plot is really smart, the animation is brilliant and the humor...Oh man! The last 50 minutes must be the most fun 50 minutes I had in years and believe me, I'm NOT exaggerating. It seems impossible to imagine the fun the writers must have had, because this is a true film-fest whether you do like Disney-esque films or don't.
Having this fast-paced storyline, John Lasseter & Co. exploited it to a maximum. Cameo's from Pixar-characters (Geri's the coolest), unexpected and obliged references to other big films (really love the Jurrasic Park one), great new characters (Wheezy!!), and more jokes and gags rammed in an animated feature than you'll ever see and of course the out takes.
The action-department is also greatly represented in some astonishing sequences with great, original shots and angles. The music is moody and Randy Newman is at his best with the really non-disturbing, appropriate song about Jessie, which is definitely the message of this film.
O.K., I know I'm raving, but I really meant it when I chose the ten and clicked the "Vote" button. This film is great and I recommend it to every film-lover.
A few downsides (this hardly affects the overall film) are I think, first of all the lack of originality, which is excusable and acceptable for a sequel. Second, the still somewhat jerky animation of the humans (I know they said it was supposed to be, but I disagree that). And third: the ratio, 1:1,85 (I thought it was the theater, but Pixar is forgiven, seen the quality of the film.) These are minors things and my decision is final, Toy Story 2 is certainly included in my top 20.
O.K., now you may stand up and ring a friend to go and see it, come on!!
