Toy Story

Continuity mistake: When Buzz looks at his foot and sees ANDY written on it, at first it's sloppy and a bit backward with a misshapen A, but when the angle changes it's a lot neater. (00:22:05)

Other mistake: When Andy's friends show up all of the Caucasian boys have Andy's face and hair. Most surely due to the limited technology available then, but weird nevertheless.

Continuity mistake: When Buzz and Woody are riding RC, holding onto Slink in the end, there's a shot where the truck turns to the left on a bend. Slinky gets stretched further, and RC goes off to the right side of the road due to centrifugal force. We can see that RC is going to go under a parked car. The camera switches to the front and we see the car pass from further right. They never end up going under it and tangling Slinky in the wheel. (01:12:00)


Continuity mistake: The objects on Hannah's play table change position between two consecutive shots. Most notably Buzz's arm holding the teapot, as well as Buzz's legs. (00:49:20)

Other mistake: After throwing Woody to the floor, Sid raises the window shade and tries to burn a hole in Woody's head by using a magnifying glass to focus the sunlight. Sid is leaning over Woody with his back toward the window and yet he does not cast a shadow on Woody. In addition, the position of Sid's body would block the sun's rays from hitting the magnifying glass but the close-up shows the narrow beam of light hitting Woody's head.

Character mistake: Mr Potato Head gets torn apart by baby Molly after the opening scene. When Andy returns to the room with Buzz everyone resumes their positions, but Mr Potato Head looks for his bits and sits under the shelf with the other toys.


Continuity mistake: Near the start, when Woody mentions the party being moved to today, there are 2 black spots on the wheel by the toy box that change place. Note the spoke of the wheel.

Continuity mistake: Towards the end when Potato Head and Ham are playing Battleship and Woody is yelling from Sid's room, Buzz is wearing the apron that Hannah put on him. He's wearing it throughout that whole scene except when the toys in Sid's room are fixing him and Woody says; "you're not gonna eat him, you monsters."

Continuity mistake: When Woody plans to knock Buzz behind a desk, if you look closely at the globe in a box next to the bulletin board, it is slightly off-position in its stand. Later, when the bulletin board begins to fall on the globe, the globe is positioned correctly. (00:24:40 - 00:26:00)


Deliberate mistake: The license plate on the back of Andy's car says A-113, while the license plate in the front of Andy's car says A-111. A deliberate nod to room A-113 at California Institute of the Arts, often used by alumni, but a mistake regardless.

Mr. Potato Head: Oh, really? I'm from Playskool.
Rex: And I'm from Mattel. Well, I'm not really from Mattel, I'm actually from a smaller company that was purchased by Mattel in a leveraged buyout.

Question: Pixar movies have always shown to have adult themes. Was Buzz drunk during the Mrs. Nesbit scene?

Answer: There wasn't anything for him to get drunk on. He was just wallowing in self pity and frankly, his world had just fallen apart, so it's understandable that he'd act a little loopy as a reaction.
