Buzz Light Year Introduction

First seen in the movie Toy Story as a birthday gift for Andy, Buzz Lightyear is a fascinating and fictional character in the film. Also known as Buzz, he is a space ranger action figure in the film. Buzz plays a prominent role in the film with the other protagonist Sheriff Woody. This captivating character is also seen to appear in the film Buzz Lightyear of Star Command: The Adventure Begins and in the Television series Buzz Lightyear of Star Command. He also makes his presence in two other sequels of the Toy Story movie.

Buzz Light Year Movie Introduction

An interesting history surrounds Buzz. The imaginary character was created from an agreement signed between Pixar and Disney to work on a flick based personality from Pixar’s Academy Award winning short movie Tin Toy that was to be named as Toy Story . John Lasseter, the director of Tin Toy, changed the protagonist Tinny to a military action figure adding the space theme because he believed it to be ‘too antiquated’. His name also underwent many changes and eventually it was decided as Buzz Lightyear.

Buzz’s attire was inspired from the dress worn by Apollo astronauts and also by the G.I. Joe action figures. Certain innovative designs and the creation of this amazing figure can be credited to Bob Pauley, the production designer.

Final Touches

The humanoid figure Buzz, at first, did not realize that he was a doll and believed himself to be real. His thoughts are attention grabbing and funny. Moreover, he does not realize that his equipment is not serviceable and thinks his laser is LED. Such beliefs cause chafing between Woody and Buzz. Buzz’s imaginary thoughts and doo-dads also grabbed the attention of other toys and audience.

In the series, Buzz utters a classic captivating line ‘To infinity and beyond’. Buzz is equipped with certain things that help him to perform certain tasks. For example: In Toy Story 2 the utility belt with two magnets are stored and when activated it helps him to climb. These different space suits are limited facts in capability. This character has amused the audience with humor and actions which made the audience like him very well.
