The second Pixar film to feature 'Jonathan Harris', after A Bug's Life (1998). It was also his last Pixar film before his death. See more »

Goofs

In Toy Story, Sid burned a dot into Woody's head with a magnifying glass, but now the dot is gone. Since Andy adeptly sews up Woody's arm, it is possible that Andy (or his mother) touched up Woody's burn mark. See more »

Alternate Versions

In the original 1999 theatrical version, the end credits played over a black background, while the songs "Woody's Roundup" and "You've Got a Friend In Me" played out in full. This version was used for the original DVD release in 2000. Approximately one month into the original theatrical release, the end credits were replaced with the joke "outtake reel" version. This version of the credits was used for the 2010 Blu-ray release. A reformatted version, with the outtakes at the top of the screen instead of on the side, had been used for the 2000 VHS release. The outtake reel itself had also been included as a special feature (full-screen, with no credits) on the 2000 DVD. The 2019 UHD release uses the outtake version of the credits, but the clip of Prospector chatting with the Barbies in his box has been removed. It was also cut from the versions available digitally.

Even Better Than The First 'Toy Story'
21 April 2006 | by ccthemovieman-1See all my reviews

Here's yet one more sequel that more than lived up to its original great start. The first Toy Story was outstanding. This is just as good, if not better.

Very fast-paced and very entertaining, this doesn't have a lot of laugh-out-loud parts but is definitely fun to watch with many good lines. What I appreciated was the lack of a nasty villain and any evil overtones, as was the case with the rotten neighborhood kid in the first film.

I also appreciated the fantastic surround sound on the DVD, along with the magnificent colors. Not to be forgotten is a wonderful, tear-jerking song in here, sung by Sarah MacLaclan. It gets to me every time.

When you factor in all the nice characters, music, colors and sounds, this has to be one of the most beloved animated films of the modern era.
