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)
Factual error: When woody lights the rocket using Buzz's helmet to refract the sun, Buzz being made of plastic (including his helmet) would've been burned or at least had some sort of damage from the sun, but he doesn't. The same when Woody finds out his hand is burning. No visible burn mark.
Suggested correction: The sun is concentrated further beyond, not the helmet, so the helmet doesn't get as hot from it as that area does. Besides, plastic doesn't melt that easily, not from a concentrated sunbeam at least. It's a better question to ask if plastic can concentrate light as much as a magnifying glass can. We don't know when the toys feel something, so he must have felt the heat before it damaged its hand. We hear sizzling but that can only be superficial. No scar is from Sid's torture either.
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.
