Tim Allen Made a Bad Kid Cry Using His Buzz Lightyear Voice

Tim Allen Made a Bad Kid Cry Using His Buzz Lightyear Voice
Toy Story and Home Improvement star Tim Allen is never short of a humorous anecdote, something that we could all use during this trying time. Having regaled us with John Wick related stories in the past, Allen recently told another tale from his unique life experience, this time regarding what it's like to be Buzz Lightyear.

"I'm in Manhattan in an elevator and a young kid is misbehaving. Some kids at a certain age just punch you in the crotch, I don't know what that's about. It's a certain age, they're right there, they know it gets your attention. And so this kid was punching mom in the leg and really going nuts. So I said 'To infinity and beyond! You shouldn't treat your mom like that.' And the kid looked all around the elevator and then started crying. And the mom's looking at me like now she's mad.

Complete Pixar Movie Disney Plus UK Streaming Guide

Complete Pixar Movie Disney Plus UK Streaming Guide
When Disney+ launched in the Us last November, it was still shaking off the remnants of its former Netflix deal. Lingering ties to the streaming competitor meant that a few completist-irking gaps were left in the Us Disney+ Pixar catalogue. At launch, Coco, Up and Incredibles 2 weren’t available to American subscribers.

Not so for the UK. When Disney+ arrives on March 24th, it’s getting the full complement of Pixar. Films, shorts, you name it. That catalogue is fuller than Emile the Rat in a binful of tainted Camembert.

Don’t miss out on this Disney+ Pre-order Deal, on us!

So if you’re planning a Pixar marathon come the arrival of Disney+ (and really, is there a more wholesome lockdown activity than spotting every Pizza Planet truck, A113 or John Ratzenberger cameo in the animation studio’s back catalogue?), here’s what’s coming your way…

Pixar Tackles The Meaning Of Life With The Trailer For “Soul”

Pixar Tackles The Meaning Of Life With The Trailer For “Soul”
The bigger the swing that Pixar takes, creatively, the greater the reward audience members tend to be in store for. In June, the animation giant seems poised to release one of its riskier titles to date, immediately making it a must see for those who appreciate when they move off the beaten path. Soul, a music filled journey into the meaning of life, has dropped a Trailer, only furthering the excitement for this one. You can see it at the bottom of the post, and trust me, you’re going to be desperate to see the movie afterwards. It looks phenomenal. The very vague IMDb synopsis so far has just told us the following: “A musician who has lost his passion for music is transported out of his body and must find his way back with the help of an infant soul learning about herself.” As you’ll see in the Trailer,

Cheers: 10 Times Cliff Was The Best Character

Cheers: 10 Times Cliff Was The Best Character
Cheers is one of the quintessential TV shows of all time. For eleven season, viewers tuned in to catch up on all the day-to-day shenanigans of the patrons and staff at Cheers, a bar in Boston. It was such a simple concept, yet it resonated so strongly with the audience due to its mix of dry and slapstick humor, as well as its enthralling group of characters.

It was never just about the hero, bar owner and bartender Sam Malone (Ted Danson), who used to pitch for the Boston Red Sox. The minor characters often end up carrying the show, particularly the mailman and resident trivia-whiz Cliff Clavin (John Ratzenberger). You name anything, and Cliff can probably give you a fun fact about it, and in a way that will still make everyone laugh. Here are some of the best moments

Pixar Again Earns Your Tears With “Onward”

Pixar Again Earns Your Tears With “Onward”
If there’s one thing you can bank on when it comes to Pixar, it’s emotion. No matter the story that they’re telling, the animation experts will seek to bring you to tears. It’s one of the reasons why they’ve become the industry leader in making films that, while aimed at kids on the surface, are really speaking to adults. Onward, opening this week, is just the latest example of that. Children will see a romp with creative designs, while grown ups will be wrecked by the emotional message at its core. It’s another one of Pixar’s top notch efforts, starting off the year with a definite Best Animated Feature contender. The film is an animated adventure, steeped in fantasy and magic. Long ago, the world was filled with magic, but as modern technology came into play, that was cast aside for convenience. We

Oscar flashback: ‘Toy Story 3’ director thanks fans for embracing ‘talking toys’ during Best Animated Feature speech [Watch]
Nine years ago, “Toy Story 3” became the first (and so far only) sequel to win the Oscar for Best Animated Feature. In his acceptance speech, director Lee Unkrich thanked audiences for embracing Pixar’s film about “talking toys that hopefully had something very human to say.” The movie beat out “How to Train Your Dragon” and “The Illusionist” in the animated category, but lost Best Picture to “The King’s Speech.” At the time, “Toy Story 3” was thought to be the final chapter in the blockbuster film series about Sheriff Woody (Tom Hanks), Buzz Lightyear (Tim Allen) and the gang — that is, until “Toy Story 4” was announced four years later.

There’ll be blast cast from the past on “Dancing with the Stars” next week: Leah Remini will guest-judge Week 4 of the competition. And her old ballroom friends can’t wait — and are also slightly anxious.

“She says it how it is. She’s done the show, so she’s familiar with the pressure,” Val Chmerkovskiy told “Entertainment Tonight” (watch below). “I’m excited. I’m a little nervous because she’s brutally honest, but I’m excited to have her back.”

Remini finished in fifth place on Season 17 in 2013 with Tony Dovolani. She’s since returned to guest-host in Erin Andrews‘ stead alongside Tom Bergeron for a week in Season 19 and two weeks in Season 21.
