Toy Story

Corrected entry: During the business meeting, Lotso (who appears as the antagonist in Toy Story 3) makes a cameo appearance sitting on Andy's desk. (00:06:49)

Correction: This isn't Lotso. While it is a pink bear, it's not Lotso as it's explained that Lotso was owned by a girl named Daisy who lost him during a family picnic.


I will also add the design on the face is completely different.


Corrected entry: When Buzz and Woody are flying, you see them eventually swoop under a power line. In scenes before and after that, it shows a bird's eye view of the neighborhood, and there is not a power line in sight. (01:14:01)

Correction: Putting aside that we never get a 360=degree view of Andy's neighborhood, they're chasing a moving vehicle that's no longer in the immediate neighborhood anyway.

JC Fernandez

Corrected entry: In the scene where Sid is building the launching pad, and Woody and the other toys all emerge from the garden to scare him, all the toys shadows are almost directly underneath them, something that occurs when the sun is at its highest point, noon . However, Sid set his alarm to get him up at 7am, and its doubtful it would have taken him long to get everything ready. The shadows should have been much longer that early in the morning.

Correction: The moving truck arrives just at 7am. When Sid is ready to 'launch' the rocket & Buzz the fully loaded truck is ready to go, (we see the last boxes being moved out of Andy's room then Andy & his mom drive off). So several hours must have passed from 7am until the scene with the toys in Sid's backyard.

Corrected entry: When RC pushes Buzz off the edge of the desk, why would Woody get RC to do it, and have a witness, when he is strong enough to do it himself? (His strength is proven later in the film when he throws the lights from Sid's house to Andy's house, and also when he manages to close Sid's door with the dog pushing against it).

Correction: Woody was trying to make it look like an accident. Had he pushed him directly, it obviously couldn't have been explained as an accident.

Jack's Revenge

Corrected entry: Near the end of the movie, when Buzz and Woody are trying to catch the moving van, Woody is hanging from the rope trying to climb up when Scud grabs on to him. How is it possible that that little dog with the short legs could possibly keep up with the fast-moving truck?

Correction: That dog was some type of Dachshund. Dachshunds are very quick. Just like humans, the size of the dog is not pertinent to how fast they can run. Since the truck was in a neighborhood area the most it could have been going was 30 miles per hour. It's perfectly possible for the dog to have kept up with the truck.

Corrected entry: Woody and Buzz are at Sid's window. Woody is trying to convince the other toys that he and Buzz are friends. Woody is holding Buzz's arm that fell off and swinging it around. But the arm changes from the left hand to the right hand.


Correction: Actually, it is always his left arm, it never changes.

Corrected entry: When Sid straps the rocket to Buzz and sets him down on the table, and then sets the alarm clock next to him, we can see a piece of black tape go right across Buzz's chest. Yet for the rest of the film, the tape that ties the rocket to Buzz is only on his back, none of it goes right the way around him.


Correction: I watched the movie and checked. In every shot you see Buzz from the front, he has a piece of tape on his chest. There is a break as it's the ends of two separate pieces. But it stayed the same as soon as Sid put it on.

Correction: It is used for the soldiers' mission and the toys probably took it from the mom's room when nobody was around.

Corrected entry: Woody and Buzz are trapped in the "Claw Machine" with all the alien toys. The "Claw" is being controlled by Sid. Now, ANYONE who has EVER played with one of those things, knows that those claws can only lift a certain amount of weight. They are definitely not strong enough to lift a Buzz Lightyear and Woody toy. Especially, when Woody had put all of his strength into pulling Buzz out of the Claw's grips. (00:38:26)

Correction: Unless you've played THAT claw machine, you can't really make a judgment. I agree that the claws on those things usually are weak, but if Sid could do it...

Correction: Most claw machines have multiple settings to adjust how much weight the claw can hold, depending on what sort of prizes they're giving out (stuffed animals vs. Plastic toys as an example). Depending on how heavy the little aliens are, the claw could easily have been calibrated to handle more weight than is normal, especially if it will entice folk to spend more coins on the chance of being able to grab multiple prizes.

Corrected entry: When the soldiers bring the baby monitors downstairs there is a cord in their hands, but in the next scene it's gone.

Correction: Wasn't that the skipping rope? They probably discarded it when they didn't need it anymore.

Corrected entry: If Buzz doesn't know that he is a toy, then why does he freeze so that people won't find out that he is alive?

Correction: Around certain larger, stronger creatures (for example, a Bear), its recommended humans play dead so that the bear looses interest. This may be the tactic Star Command gives Buzz Lightyear - around larger, visibly stronger creatures, play dead so they will hopefully lose interest.

He sees other toys playing dead when these giants enter the room, and for all Buzz knows those giants may be dangerous. When in Rome, do as the Romans do, so he plays dead in order to be safe.

Corrected entry: In the scene at the petrol station, Woody and Buzz get onto the Pizza Planet delivery truck in order to get to where Andy is. The driver has quite a few pizzas stacked up next to him in the front seat, yet you never see him deliver them. He even says something like 'Dude, hurry up, the pizzas are getting cold,' but then he drives straight back to Pizza Planet (the place where he's come from).

Correction: There is no indication that he drove back to the restaurant right away. He could've delivered the pizzas and then drove back.

Correction: Just because the back of the lorry is open doesn't mean that everything will fly out. If this was the case then every time someone opened the back of the lorry all the stuff inside would be backed up on the doors.

Corrected entry: In the scene where the toys come alive and talk to Sid, you see two armless G.I. Joes pop out of the mud, along with a green wind-up frog. The G.I. Joes are muddy but the frog is squeaky clean straight out of the mud.

Correction: The frog is the one that Scud chased and it hasn't been in there for nearly as long as the G.I. Joes.

Corrected entry: When Woody gets into the moving van and opens the box of toys, they react to the box being opened by complaining or shielding their eyes from the sun etc. However, if it was Andy's mom or one of the moving employees instead of Woody, wouldn't they have given away the whole "Toys are alive" thing?

Correction: This is a question, not a mistake. The toys seem to have a keen sense of when humans are around; they always seem to know when one is approaching.


Corrected entry: Seeing as Buzz is unaware he is a toy, what exactly does he do when Andy plays with him? Would he not interact with him entirely the same way he does with his other toys when he first meets them.

Correction: He thinks Andy is the leader of this "tribe". All the other toys allow Andy to play with them, so Buzz does too. When in Rome...


Correction: Lee Unkrich. Who directed 3 and co-directed 2, said in a tweet to this question;" Two words; Toy instinct." So, there's that.


Corrected entry: When Woody is about to be run over by a truck tire in the gas station, he could've easily moved. The driver wouldn't have seen him.


Correction: It was a quick reaction. Buzz ran away as he saw it coming sooner but Woody thought it best to stop moving right away, not knowing where to go. He didn't want to be found in the middle of the pavement in the gas station lights either.


Keep in mind that he was going to go further under the truck in a few seconds. There's no reason to suggest that he couldn't have done that earlier. He wouldn't have been seen.

Correction: The driver might not have seen him but there were people in the gas station and on the concourse who could well have done so.

Corrected entry: Near the end of the movie when Buzz and Woody are in the sky with the rocket, it is not clear how exactly the tape becomes detached from Buzz's body. It detached from his figure as soon as he opened his wings, but this doesn't explain how the tape was removed. Wouldn't Buzz have removed the rocket earlier if he could have?

Correction: The tape was right over where Buzz's wings come out, so by opening his wings, the tape was snapped off. Buzz didn't think to do it earlier because at first he was too despondent to care and then he was more worried about the immediate need to escape than about the rocket that presented no danger so long as it wasn't lit.


Actually, when Buzz feels happier and more willing to save himself, it would have been easier to run away before Sid woke up and then use his wings to cut the rocket off.

Corrected entry: In the sequence just after Andy picks Molly out of her crib, Mr. Potato Head is saying "ages three and up..." without his nose in and he sounds completely normal. Later when Mr. Potato Head loses in Battleship and gives up his nose as payment, he sounds nasal. (00:03:50 - 00:50:40)

Correction: He deliberately sounds nasal because he is holding his nose that the character Ham had won.

Corrected entry: When the duo is over at Sid's house, and when they are in his bedroom, the kid burns Woody's forehead, causing his forehead to smoke. When Sid leaves, Woody rushes over and dunks his head into this bowl of half-eaten Fruit Loops. Why was there no milk dripping from his face?.


Correction: The Fruit Loops have been there for quite some time and have absorbed the milk, hence the noise made by Woody's head when he dunks it in.

Toy Story mistake picture

Other mistake: When Rex shakes the table causing the baby monitor to fall, the batteries fall out and we see the open battery compartment with markings for positive (+) and negative (-), and space for two AA batteries. Woody jumps off the bed and places the two batteries inside the compartment, but before he closes the compartment note the position of the battery closest to the top of the monitor. The positive side is actually where the negative side should be so the monitor should not work, but the monitor turns on just in time to hear the soldier's warning. (00:13:15)

Trivia: The number A113 has appeared in every full length Pixar film. In Toy Story, as well as its sequel, it is the license plate number on Andy's mom's mini-van.


More trivia for Toy Story

Question: I was wondering. Does Sid destroy toys because his father beats/abuses Sid, so Sid lets out his anger on toys? This would explain all the locks on Sid's door, to hide from his father and to hide what he does to toys. When Scud is looking for Woody, he notices Sid's father sleeping, and Scud walks away, which could mean that Scud doesn't want to wake up Sid's father knowing he is a cruel and violent man.

Answer: This is a Disney/Pixar production, at no point are they intimating that kind of a relationship between son and father. If anything, the father simply doesn't care what his son gets up to so long as he isn't disturbed by it. Any other inferences you get from the movie are for you to contend with, but the family nature of the movie would suggest beating/abuse is not the answer.
