Toy Story 2 mistake picture

Continuity mistake: When the characters are crossing the street to get to the toy store, Mr. Potato Head gets his foot stuck on some gum. From the first angle, the gum is at the half way point of the rolling cement drainage pipe. When he barely escapes, the gum is near the lip of the pipe, a foot or so from the end. As the gum sticks to the passing pipe, it appears to be half way between those two points. (00:38:15)

Continuity mistake: When Jesse and Bullseye are at Andy's house, the letters on Bullseye's hoofs are written so that when it says Dany, the A is on the front left hoof, D is on the back left hoof, the N is on the front right hoof, and the Y is on the back right hoof. When he switches the letters to Andy, the A and Y stay on the same hoof, but the D and N switch hooves. (Note, our left and right, not Bullseye's.). (01:22:40)

Continuity mistake: When Woody is in Al's apartment thinking about leaving with the gang, he rubs the brown paint off his boot and looks at the name "Andy" written on it. The direction of the name is written differently, than when the cleaner first painted over it. (00:42:00 - 01:07:00)

Continuity mistake: After his arm has been ripped the first time, Woody doesn't seem to be able to use it. But when Al carries Woody into his building, Woody uses both arms to hold open the bag. (00:09:40 - 00:17:40)

rabid anarchist

Continuity mistake: Near the end when the toys are chasing Al out of the building, Mr. Potato Head throws his hat to prevent the doors from closing. The other toys pass through this space running (seen in lateral view), even though the space the hat has made is too narrow for the toys to pass. (01:12:00)

Continuity mistake: When the toys first enter Al's Toy Barn, the Pixar ball can be seen in the lower left corner. Yet when Buzz is on the roller monkey trying to catch up to Al, the ball has moved to the right corner. (00:55:33)

Other mistake: When Hamm turns off the TV at the beginning, there's no reflection of him, Rex who is beside him, or the remote. (00:06:58)

Continuity mistake: When Evil Zurg first busts out of his box he looks at Buzz Lightyear running across the parking lot at Al's Toy Barn. Through Zurg's viewfinder, you see Buzz run across a white pair of painted parking lot lines, but when you see an overhead view of Buzz running, he hasn't reached that pair of white lines yet. (00:55:35)

Continuity mistake: When Woody asks Jessie to give him 'a little intro' when he is in the box, there is a felt-tip pen by the door of the box. By the time he opens the door, the pen is now a few inches from where it was before. Woody then runs back into the box to get the polystyrene and when he runs back out again, the pen is now back to its original position. (01:00:50)

Continuity mistake: When Buzz and the others arrive at Al's apartment and try to persuade Woody to leave with them, in some shots the remote control isn't visible (when it should be), until Woody goes over to it and turns on the TV to show them 'Woody's Roundup' - also there is a roll of cellotape sitting a good two metres away from the remote, but seconds later the cellotape and remote are practically side by side. (01:04:00)


Continuity mistake: In the German Version: The group arrives at the Toy Market and a sign says "GESCHLOSSEN". The next time it is shown it says "CLOSED". (Geschlossen is the German word for closed).-It happens in the French version as well and in other Pixar films too. They arguably translated the most obvious words so that foreign people can understand, but they forgot some of them.

Continuity mistake: The movie released in Spanish cinemas showed the signs on Al's Toy Barn written in Spanish, but only during the first shots. Moments later they magically change to their original English text.

Continuity mistake: When Woody rides Bullseye for the first time, they ride past the cardboard box and the front flap is up. Then when Bulleyes goes to get Stinky pete out of the box, the front flap is now down. Then when Bulleyes turns Pete's box around, the flap is up again. (00:21:00)


Continuity mistake: In the wideshot when Andy's mum puts Woody on the top shelf, there is nothing visible under the books. Then moments later Woody discovers Wheezy under the same books. (00:09:15 - 00:11:40)


Continuity mistake: When Rex breaks the fort with his tail, Mr. and Mrs. Potato are behind it but they disappear a few shots later.

Dr Wilson

Other mistake: Near the end of the picture Al is racing to the airport and the toys give chase in the pizza truck. Spud jams the transmission into gear without using the clutch. (Hey, it's only a cartoon and Goyozas had great transmissions). The entire chase, however, would have been in first gear, but the engine runs at a normal speed. The truck bounces to a stop at the airport and then the engine stops. If they weren't using the clutch the truck and the engine would have stopped (stalled-out) at the same time. (01:12:55)

Other mistake: When the toys burst through the air vent into Al's office, the other Buzz's laser goes off with out him touching it.

Continuity mistake: If you look closely when Woody and Jessie are hugging on the plane near the end of the movie, in the green case, in Woody's styrofoam holder thing, his gun holder is on the wrong side, but you have to look really close. (01:18:45)

Hamm: Where did you get the cool belt, Buzz?
Buzz Lightyear #2: Well, slotted pig, these are standard issue.

Trivia: When Buzz first sees Zurg's Power source at the start of the movie, the sound effect used is the same as the black spherical droid in Star Wars that goes to interrogate Princess Leia. (00:03:25)


More trivia for Toy Story 2

Question: When Al is talking to the Japanese man on the phone, he ends the phone call with "Don't touch my mustache." What does he mean by this? Is this a Japanese term that sounds like don't touch my mustache? (Similar to when everybody yells "have a paper bag!" at Harryhausen's in Monster's Inc?)

Answer: "Douitashimashite" is the Japanese word for You're welcome. Phonetically, it sounds like "Don't touch my mustache." It's how we were taught to say it while living in Japan in the military. If you say it fast enough, you can sound like you are pronouncing the word decently enough (although clearly not THAT accurately.)
