Toy Story 2

Corrected entry: In the first "Toy Story" film, it is established that Mister Potato Head cannot "see" when his eyes are detached, but in this film, there is a scene where Buzz uses his detached eyed to peer through a vent and around a 90 degree angle.

Correction: His eyes can still see when they're detached. It's his body that can't see when they're detached. Mrs Potato Head's eye can also see when detached in Toy Story 3.


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)

Correction: In the commercials when Al lies an egg, feathers fly up. That is where the feathers in the trunk come from.

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.


Correction: Mom just believes that Andy took Woody out of the cash box. She's running a yard sale and is being pulled in many directions. Believe me, it's not hard to forget a little detail like that. Not a stretch and certainly not as complicated as you try to make it.


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.

Correction: How is this a mistake? There's nothing that says that Bullseye can't run that fast. Sure, it's a high speed, but this is a movie about living toys. We have no idea what they are capable of.

Corrected entry: In this movie, Woody's horse's name is Bullseye. But in the first movie, when Woody gets his pull-string caught on the stair-railing in Sid's house, you can hear him call his horse "Thunder."

Correction: He says "partner" not thunder.

Corrected entry: The name of the toy store is Al's Toy Barn. In the previous Toy Story, the commercial Buzz saw about himself said that Buzz Lightyear was sold at Al's Toy Barn.

Correction: Pointing out continuity between a film and its sequel is not trivia.

Jason Hoffman

Corrected entry: When Rex tells Buzz 2 about how to defeat Zurg, Buzz makes 'notes' on his "computer" on his arm, and it starts to make beeping noises. It is really a sticker and therefore shouldn't be making any beeping noises.

Correction: It was a sticker on the original Buzz Lightyear. Remember that this is an updated version, they may have added beeping noises when the computer panel is pressed.

Corrected entry: In Al's office, there is an abstracted version of a shot from A Bug's Life. The shot was reportedly abstracted to prevent people from identifying the shot until they got the video version and looked hard at it.

Correction: This is too vague. I have watched every scene in Al's office and living area, frame by frame, and I see no such sketch. Is it in the office where he faxes the photos to Japan? Is it in the office where he stores the collection and naps on the sofa?


Corrected entry: Within the first opening minutes of Toy Story 2, when Andy is playing with the toys before he has to leave for Cowboy Camp, Andy uses RC's remote to get RC to knock down Pig. Though in Toy Story 1, at the end of the movie when RC's batteries die, Woody throws the remote down, not picking it back up after he lights the rocket. Therefore Andy wouldn't be able to use RC again because he doesn't have the remote anymore.


Correction: It's seen that Andy labels his toys and the truck hasn't left Andy's neighborhood. Someone who knows they are moving could have found it and called his mom and returned it before they left the city or mailed it to them. Its a bit of a reach, but since the remote is there in the sequel, not impossible.

Grumpy Scot

Corrected entry: Toys have been shown to not come alive until they are taken out of their box (Buzz in the first movie and in this movie). However, Stinky Pete has never left his box and is still alive.

Correction: It is never stated toys don't come alive until they are unwrapped. Perhaps the toys are just waiting to come alive until they are bought. They are simply putting on a charade to make people think that they're toys.

Corrected entry: Before Emily and Jessie fall into the pile of leaves, you can see Emily's face. She has a little boy face -- Andy's face.

Correction: Facial features do not define gender. Little boys are often mistaken for little girls (and vice versa). Heck, sometimes adult men are mistaken for adult women. And some people look alike.

JC Fernandez

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.).

Correction: Woody never had a gun, even in the old black-and-white movies when he was a puppet. So no gun is ever missing and Woody is complete with no gun.

Corrected entry: If Woody was made in the 50's, shouldn't he have had a previous owner like Jessie did? Andy's mom said he is a family toy, so he must have lived through the changes of a previous owner, and should understand what Jessie was going through, yet he acts as if he didn't know anything.

Correction: If Woody's a family toy, then he may well have been passed down the generations from loving owner to loving owner, not abandoned like Jessie was, so, while he'd understand the change of owner idea, he wouldn't understand her specific experience as he's never been left alone.

Corrected entry: When Woody is watching the "Woody's Roundup" movie, you can see the strings used to control the characters.

Correction: That's the joke. The production values of "Woody's Roundup" are so low that the strings are visible, rather like Thunderbirds.


Corrected entry: In the scene where the toys are in the pet carrier at the airport, they pick the pet carrier up slightly and walk. They never remove the bottom, and I've never seen a pet carrier without one.

Correction: But I have seen a pet cage with holes in the floor.

Corrected entry: When the toys are on the top of the elevator, they get off at a vent on the 23rd floor. When they reach the other end of the vent, they are near the floor of Al's apartment. For the top of the elevator to be on the bottom of the 23rd floor, it would have to be going to the 22nd floor. This is not the case because the toys get back on the top of the elevator later as Al gets in on the 23rd floor.

Correction: If they entered a vent near the ceiling, and the venting angled or turned downward, they would come out near the floor. This is what must have happened.

Corrected entry: During the scene the toys are crossing the road to Al's Toy Barn the traffic light changes too fast. As soon as it hits red on one side it'll go to green instantly for the opposite lane of traffic. It does this a couple times during the scene. In reality there should be a 3 or 4 second delay between red to green changes. (00:37:20)

Correction: There is no rule or law that lights have to wait a few seconds to change to green after one has turned red. Some lights in real life do change instantly as it adds up to too much time waiting to change, but not every light will wait a few seconds before changing.

Corrected entry: When Pete and Woody are fighting on the conveyor belt in the airport the word "ANDY" can be seen on his foot. This is after the cleaner painted over it.

Correction: During the song that TV Woody plays/sings before the mentioned scene, the real woody scratches off most of the paint. This makes Andy's name visible again.

Susan Kirk

Corrected entry: When Hamm is flipping through the channels,you see the clown similar to the one on the Twisted Metal games showing his middle finger. I wonder how they got that in a G-rated movie....

Correction: If you pause a DVD you can see that the clown in not giving you the bird. What you may mistake as his middle finger is really the bottom half of his eye.

Corrected entry: When the toys watch the old "Woody's Roundup" show, the dynamite fuse gets longer in between shots of Jesse and Prospector in the mines.

Correction: Whats shown is a show from the 1950's, when production values weren't quite so high - this is mistake within the world of the movie, and not necessarily a mistake by the filmmakers.

Buzz Lightyear: I'll never give in. You killed my father!
Emperor Zurg: No, Buzz. I *am* your father!



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.



The voice of the Evil Emperor Zurg is Pixar director/screen-writer Andrew Stanton, who frequently voices minor characters in Pixar's films.
