Updated on December 30, 2010

To Infinity And Beyond!

The movie Toy Story is a tale about some toys that were afraid of being replaced. They take us on a journey of love, loss, and triumph and teach us that things aren't always what they seem to be. This is the story of the characters of Toy Story.


Woody is the 'leader' of the toys in Andy's bedroom. He is an old-fashioned pull string cowboy doll. He is Andy's favorite toy and even has a special place on Andy's bed. All the other toys come to him when they have problems. Woody looks out for Andy and even holds regular 'toy meetings' to discuss issues going on with the toys and Andy's daily events.

When Andy's birthday comes about, all the toys wit anxiously to see what new toys Andy will get. They are all surprised when Andy gets a brand new Buzz Lightyear action figure. It talks and lights up and Andy falls in love with it immediately. Woody becomes jealous of Buzz and tries to make him look foolish in various scenes of the movie. Through many unforeseen catastrophes during the film, Woody and Buzz eventually become best friends and share the bedroom leadership role equally.

Andy gets Buzz for his birthday and is loved immediately...but not by everybody. Woody despised Buzz and immediately becomes jealous when Andy gives Buzz the coveted spot on the bed. When Woody realizes that Buzz thinks he is the real Buzz Lightyear, he does everything in his power to convince Buzz that he is just a toy. It is not until Buzz sees a commercial for himself that he actually believes Woody. He becomes depressed and despises being simply a toy. It takes Woody, finally realizing that Buzz is a good guy, to convince Buzz that being a toy is great. Woody explains to Buzz that being loved by Andy is the greatest thing is the world. Buzz and Woody become friends by the end of the film and work together to overcome the possibility of being left behind.

When all of the other toys shun Woody, she is the one that convinces them to give him another chance and tell his side of the story.
