Toy Story 2

Corrected entry: In the first movie, Andy's mom is a brunette with long hair. In the second movie, she has short blond hair. Even if she cut and dyed her hair, her face appears entirely different between both movies.

Correction: Her hair IS cut and dyed, as is evidenced by the fact that you can still see the dark roots showing. As for her facial features, that's a matter of personal opinion. The structure and shape looks identical to me. It's likely that the different hairstyle makes the face APPEAR different; this is a common phenomenon that hairdressers use to their advantage.

Corrected entry: Do you really think the Super Nintendo could generate a fully 3D alien terrain, a steel shaft with dazzling light effects, and a tall steel tower for a Buzz Lightyear video game?

Correction: No, but the idea is that the first-time viewer thinks the movie begins with Buzz's quest actually happening, hence the "shock" of seeing him killed at the start of the movie. A more realistic videogame picture would have given the game away too soon.

Corrected entry: In the first film Mr. Potato Head has no compartment to put his accessories in, but in the second film, he has one.

Correction: They didn't show the compartment in the first one.

Corrected entry: It would be impossible for just one of Mr. Potato Head's feet to be stuck in the gum(in the street crossing scene). Feet for Mr. Potato head are made in one piece, as shown when he tries to put on his "angry eyes."

Correction: If you look closely, Mr Potato Head's feet are always separate during the movie - when he puts them on after they enter Al's apartment, he uses both hands, one either side... This is just one of the many compromises the film-makers had to make to ensure reasonable movement of the characters. He couldn't have walked at all with joined-up feet.

Corrected entry: When Woody and Jessie jump off the airplane and are saved by Buzz, you see that shortly after they get off, the plane takes off. In the next few seconds another plane comes in for a landing. The tire flies over the heads of the characters and then lands. It is impossible for a plane to be landing and stopping before the end of the runway where the other plane took off just moments before.

Correction: Depends on the runway layout and the airport layout. Some airports (LAX and Logan for example) have very long single stretches of runway separated by strips that crisscross them. The landing plane could have come down short of the "starting" point for the next runway but would still have plenty of space ahead to stop.

Corrected entry: When Woody tries to get his arm back from a sleeping Al, the main light source is the TV. We know this because the scene fades into the TV ending a program and staying on with Al sleeping. Woody just about has his arm, and the same TV suddenly gets turned on again without ever being turned off.

Correction: That's because when Woody was first walking over to Al, there was a program ending. After it stopped there was just snow. Right when he was about to get his arm was where Pete came out of his box, and he hit play which turned on a video tape of Woody's Round Up. So the TV never had to be turned off


Corrected entry: When Buzz opens Al's trunk it opens but, in the 2nd shot of the car the trunk is closed.

Correction: The car bounces so hard that the trunk closes.

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?

The submitter is probably referring to where he keeps the collection. You can see it when Al wakes up. If you look carefully you can see the characters from A Bug's Life, Dot standing out among the others.

Question: During the introduction to Woody's Roundup, as Woody watches himself come through the swinging saloon doors, the area around his holster appears blurry. Was this in keeping with the degraded quality of the tape footage, or is this censorship of a gun?

Answer: It isn't Woody's holster that's blurred, it's his hand. And yes, the blurred effect is due to the video tape's degeneration.
