When the manager of the hotel is shipping Woody off to the highest bidder, the address on the shipping label is Al's Toy Barn. This may reference Al the toy collector from Toy Story 2, who stole Woody because he is a very rare toy and intended to sell him as part of a valuable collection to a toy museum in Japan, evident by Woody's final bid reaching $2000.00.

During the end credits scene, Carl and his friends go home to their owner Billy while the police arrive to take Ron (and possibly Mr. Jones) to jail. However, Ron flees, crashing into the motel's sign with the police cruiser, before running out. The last line in the special is tone of the cops saying that they've got a runner. See more »
Toy Story was my favourite film growing up and the sequels have respected that original classic well so I was a little sceptical about not only the shorts that have appeared before Disney films and most recently, this 30 minute 'special' that debuted on Sky. Now thanks to a limited DVD run I've now been able to see it.
'Specials' like this are normally poor. Weak storyline and poor replacement voice actors. Thankfully this one bucks the trend and the voice cast contains all the big names like Tim Allen and Tom Hanks. While the story isn't the most original it does link within the franchise that precedes it and the new characters fit in well.
It's got that same magic Pixar touch and is actually a funny and enjoyable half hour watch. Well done to all involved for making a 'special' that actually lives up to it's name.
