Trivia: Originally Woody was to have a nightmare where he was being attacked by a giant Buzz Lightyear with real working lasers.

Trivia: There are many books behind Woody when he is giving his speech and some of them are Pixar short films such as Red's Dream, Knick Knack, and Tin Toy. The Tin Toy book even has director John Lasseter's last name on it.


Trivia: Each Toy Story film in the trilogy has a Star Wars reference from the adjacent trilogy episode. In this movie, Buzz mentions that Zurg has a weapon powerful enough to destroy an entire planet, a reference to the Death Star.

Trivia: While Buzz is watching the commercial for Buzz Lightyear, the sound made by Buzz's laser is the same as the sound from the original Star Wars TIE fighters.


Trivia: The animation team perfected the movement of the toy soldiers by gluing some sneakers to a sheet of wood and trying to walk around with them on.

Trivia: All of the characters eye blink independently, rather than together - a quirk the artists intentionally incorporated.


Trivia: While Buzz is riding RC chasing after the moving truck, when Scud runs into the intersection causing the car pile-up, we see the building "Virtual Realty" the real estate company that sold Andy's house, and the bowling alley "Luxo Lanes" named after "Luxo, Jr" the first short film produced by Pixar in 1986. In the car pile-up, a blue car's license plate is "RES1536" which is also the Pizza Planet truck's license plate number, and the number's taken from Toy Story‍'‍s film resolution - 1536 x 922, the RES stands for resolution. Also, on the teal car's tire it reads "Tigger Paw" named after Disney's Tigger, and a play on the brand Uniroyal Tiger Paw tires.
