Toy Story

Corrected entry: When Buzz and Woody are on the top of the stairs, trying to escape from Sid's house, Woody's pull string gets caught on one of the banister spindles. The next shot shows him stuck on a different one.

Correction: No, it's always on the one next to the wall that curls away from it.

Corrected entry: In Pizza Planet, Buzz goes into the Claw-Game (the one with the aliens in it) and if you look carefully the wire that lowers it down is yellow but when it comes down the second time to pick up Buzz it's Black.


Correction: The yellow, curly wire doesn't lower the claw, it's just on the ceiling. The wire that lowers the claw is always black and straight.

Corrected entry: If Buzz Lightyear believes that he is a real Space Ranger then why when Andy comes in to the room does he freeze up like a toy. If he believes he is a Space Ranger wouldn't he walk around like nothing is happening?


Correction: He thinks he's on a special mission from Space Command and doesn't want to be detected.

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: The sun roof that Buzz comes in though to save Andy is not there when the mini-van returns to the house in the evening.

Correction: It is, but just shut - you can see the outline.

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: In the scene where Andy is coming upstairs with his party guest to play with Buzz Lightyear, against his closed door is propped the muscle man doll. How could he be left that way, and still be able to leave the room?

Correction: The doll wasn't left that way; in a few other scenes (both movies) this doll "blocks" the door in an attempt to give the other toys a chance to resume their positions before humans return.

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: 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: 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 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.

While true, most plastic wings on a toy don't work that way. I had my own Buzz Lightyear. At most, light could go through it but you couldn't see anything through it.

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: At the end just before the rocket takes off Woody and Buzz are sitting on RC. (the remote controlled car) They put down the controller for RC which later vanishes from the picture and then Woody lights the fuse for the rocket on Buzz's back. They fly off and drop RC into the removal truck but they didn't take the controller with them so the car will never run again. (01:13:54)

Correction: See Correction in Toy Story 2 - Andy's Mom would probably assume it got lost in the move, and go to the store to get another one.

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).

I'm pretty sure that ONE explosive can't blow something as heavy as a cement block across a garden that easily.

Correction: The block is already gone whe he lights the firecracker. Between throwing the concrete and lighting the firecracker, Sid had plenty of time to move the concrete block to where we see it later.

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 carpet design used in Sid's house is the same design used in the hotel featured in The Shining (1980). (00:48:55 - 00:50:10)

Suggested correction: The designs are not the same, only superficially similar.

The design is spot on. The color is just different.


So it is identical, except for how it is different?

No one said it was identical. The trivia is the pattern is the same. Color has no bearing on the trivial fact. The fact that they animated the carpet means the design was intentional. Although, it's possible they copied the design from a 70's carpet pattern that "The Shining" also used, rather than copy the design in "The Shining."


The colours are reversed but other than that they are the same.

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.
