Did You Know?

Trivia

The first Toy Story film of any kind (feature film or short film) that did not include John Ratzenberger as Hamm. Director Angus MacLane explained that this was because Bonnie had limited room for toys in her backpack and, "Who takes a piggy bank on a vacation?" See more »

Goofs

Similarly to the stegosaurus/triceratops mix-up, Mr. Pricklepants is labeled a 'German beaver' instead of a hedgehog. This suggests both were deliberate. See more »

Quotes

Buzz Lightyear: [while watching the movie] Tactics, Betsy, tactics. Find something to defend yourself with.
[Betsy grabs a vase]
Buzz Lightyear: There you go.
Mr. Pricklepants: Completely uselsess! Everyone knows a stake through the heart is the only way to defeat a vampire.

Crazy Credits

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 »

Not the films, but high quality entertainment
3 November 2013 | by bob the mooSee all my reviews

The Toy Story films may now be over but this short film came out in the UK as part of Halloween programming. I didn't know what to expect from it – perhaps it was just a lazy TV spin off to generate income and keep the brand fresh, but actually it was a very enjoyable little short with all the main characters returning as well as some great new ones. The plot sees the gang checking into a motel where, as Mr Pricklepants points out, terrible things can happen. Sure enough the gang start getting picked off one at a time, confronting Jessie with her worst fears which she must overcome to save the gang.

With this plot the short has a knowing humor based on horror movies and it wears this well. It isn't all this though, the film also has a nice message about overcoming fear and does a good job to bring that out of Jessie very quickly for maximum use. The film is not as impacting, intelligent nor as funny as the films, but it is still good enough to be worth watching for what it does well. I laughed out loud a couple of times (pretty good for 20 minutes) and was amused consistently for the rest.

The characters are great. I liked that the originals all returned, although Hanks and Allen clearly did their work in one day in the studio. Cusack is good while Dalton, Shawn, Schaal, Rickles, and others are all good value. The addition of Carl Weathers not only pleased me as an Arrested Development reference, but he was also a very funny character; Pezcat was also good and produced the biggest laugh from me. Overall a very enjoyable seasonal short film with high production values and high quality all round.
