Toy Story

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.


Corrected entry: In the beginning of the movie, Andy puts Potato Head in Molly's crib. She pounds him against the railing, knocking all of his pieces off. Later, when Andy and his friends are coming up to the room, Potato Head is panicking because he can't find his ear but the last time Andy saw him, he didn't have any of his pieces on so why would he be worried about it? Shouldn't the toys be trying to look like and be placed where they last were when Andy was there? (00:13:11)

Correction: In theory, yes. Obviously Mr. Potato Head forgot that he doesn't need his ear.

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.

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: After Mom steps on the soldiers and one of them is injured, the plastic piece that connects the feet is broken (which the commentators indicate is the reason he cannot walk). But when he is being lifted into the potted plant, the plastic piece connecting the feet is whole again. (00:13:10)


Correction: Its feet are fixed because he was healed by a "medic." You can see a medic army toy giving a thumbs up, indicating that he healed the broken soldier you are referring to.

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: 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.

Corrected entry: When Buzz shows all of the toys that he can fly for the first time, Buzz steps toward the end of Andy's bed. Right when he stops, notice how his right wing is transparent and you can see the window through his wing.

Correction: This is not actually a mistake, as you can see the rest of the scene and even before the moment mentioned, the wing is see-through. This indicates that it was intentional, that the plastic used to make his wings is thinner and transparent.

Corrected entry: Just before Sid blows up the Combat Carl figure, he throws a cement block at the figure, just missing it. Then we see him lighting the explosive on Carl and then he blows up. When we cut back to a wide shot of Sid's garden, the block has been moved to the other side of the garden, nowhere near where it landed before Sid lit the explosive.


Correction: Because the explosion was strong enough to make some debris hit the upstairs window where the toys were watching, it would have moved the brick (which was a lot closer).

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...

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: 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: 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.

Corrected entry: If Buzz thinks he can fly why does he just let himself fall out the window? Wouldn't he at least try to fly?


Correction: Because Buzz was hit by the lamp, which could have caught him off guard. He could've panicked whilst falling from the window, and forgotten that he could fly.

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.

Corrected entry: Why is the Baby Monitor, used to hear what is going on in the baby's room, not in the mom's room?


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: At the gas station when Woody is almost run over by the semi you can see the wheel stop just before him. Unfortunately, that's the rear wheel and you can see the front one on the left. So Woody was, in fact, run over by the truck. (00:31:40)

Correction: If the truck was turning as it pulled into the gas station, it is possible that Woody escaped being run over as the front wheels would have missed him.

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...

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.

Toy Story mistake picture

Continuity mistake: There's an electrical outlet on the wall below the window (aligned with the window shade's loop) in Sid's room near the Megadork poster, but when Sid throws Woody to the floor and raises the shade (before he scorches Woody's forehead with the magnifying glass), that outlet has vanished.

Buzz: But we're not on my planet, are we?
