Corrected entry: Al mentions that he's going to sell the entire Woody's Round-Up toy collection to a Japanese collector, who only wants the collection if it's complete. When Al first finds Woody at the yard sale, he makes a big deal about the fact that Woody still has his original cowboy hat (because an incomplete toy would be worthless to him). Well, Woody has a gun holster, so doesn't that mean he's still missing his gun? (I'm sure the real reason no gun is ever alluded to is because this is a kids' movie and guns aren't very kid-friendly, but still.).
Corrected entry: Typically when any manufacturer makes the star of the show more are made and if Woody was the star he would have most likely been the easiest to find, it's the secondary characters that are the hardest to find because children all want the hero character and it was obviously popular because of the sponsorship and all the other merchandise.
Corrected entry: As the plane is rolling down the runway, Woody tells Buzz and Bullseye to get behind the tires. The plane rotates only moments after Woody and Jessie swing off of the plane and on to Bullseye's back, which means that Bullseye would have had to be running at least 150 mph to keep up.
Corrected entry: When Al tries to buy Woody, Andy's mom puts the doll in the lockbox with the yard sale cash. Al then pries open the box and takes Woody, leaving the cash. Andy's mom must be completely oblivious to the fact Woody was missing, since the next time she is seen is at the end noticing that Andy fixed Woody, as if he never left the shelf where she put him earlier. From Andy's perspective, his mother arranged Woody and the other toys on the bed, but from the mother's perspective, she put Woody on the shelf, he ends up in the yard sale, she puts him in the cash box, then finds the cash box empty, never puts Woody back in Andy's room, and yet is not shocked at all to see that Andy has Woody the morning after he gets back from camp. She never questions where Woody (or any of the other new toys, for that matter) actually came from. Given her immediate expression of curiosity about how Woody ended up in the yard sale, the lack of a reciprocal reaction to Woody's return at the end is an incongruity.
Corrected entry: When Woody's arm is cut while playing with Andy before Andy leaves for camp, Woody's arm is not movable. However, near the end of the movie in the baggage ports when Woody and Stinky Pete are fighting, Stinky Pete cuts the same arm that Woody cut before but Woody still continues to have use of the arm afterwards.
Corrected entry: On the Prospector's box in the upper right, it says he can say 9 different things by pulling his pull-string. Funny thing is, he doesn't have one.
Corrected entry: When Al finds Woody in the yard sale and tries to buy it, Andy's mom says it's a family toy and takes it away from Al. Then she locks Woody in the box where she's keeping the money. Al creates a diversion and then steals Woody from the box. Not only does Andy's mom not realise that Woody has been stolen, but she is not even surprised when at the end of the film Andy shows her he has fixed Woody. Didn't she see that the box had been opened and Woody had disappeared? Why wasn't she surprised when Woody reappeared in Andy's bedroom? Not to mention the mysterious appearance of 5 new toys that hadn't been there before...
Corrected entry: In the scene where Woody realises he was "Famous" in the '50's, there is a "Life" magazine dated January 12, 1957 on the ground that has the headline, "Sputnik - 1st photos revealed" on it, but Sputnik was not launched until October 4th, 1957. The reason that this date was used is it is the director John Lassiter's birthday.
Corrected entry: What kind of electrical outlets does Andy have in his room? It's best seen when Bo-Peep, her sheep, and a troll enter the room at the beginning. The outlet has holes for the upper two rectangle pieces on a plug, but not for the lower circular piece. What's supposed to be plugged into one of those? He has a lamp plugged into one near his bed... weird. (00:05:41)
Corrected entry: Woody is constantly emphasizing that the toys must remain loyal to Andy and that he will always be there to play with them, and that being abandoned by an owner (as Jessie is) is a terrible thing to happen to a toy. But, we know from the television series in which he starred that Woody, Jessie and the other stars of Woody's roundup were around well before Sputnik 1 was launched in 1957, and we also know that Andy is 13 and Jessie's owner not much older. They cannot possibly be the first children who have owned these toys! Surely toys that are nudging sixty years old would know that there is nothing sad or even unusual about being "abandoned" when their owners grow older and they are passed on to other children?
Corrected entry: When Buzz jumps on the back of Al's car and falls off, a feather drops out, which is later used as a clue to track down Al, as Al wears a chicken suit. Later we see Al in his apartment in the chicken suit. We get a very good look at the suit, and it is obvious that the feathers are painted or printed on. There are no real feathers - so the feather that fell from Al's trunk couldn't exist. (00:17:15)
