List of Toy Story characters
This is a list of characters from Disney/Pixar's Toy Story franchise which consists of the animated films Toy Story (1995), Toy Story 2 (1999), Toy Story 3 (2010) and the upcoming Toy Story 4 (2019). The list also includes characters from the Toy Story Toons series (2011–12) and the television specials Toy Story of Terror! (2013) and Toy Story That Time Forgot (2014).
Toy Story (1995)Edit
The following characters are introduced in the first film Toy Story (1995).
- John Morris (first three films)
- Charlie Bright (young Andy in Toy Story 3)
Andy Davis is the owner of Sheriff Woody, Buzz Lightyear and the other toys in the first three films. He lived with his mother and sister Molly, but left to go to college after he turned 17. His father is never seen or mentioned in the films. In Toy Story 2, Andy's mother calls Woody "an old family toy" and Prospector calls him a hand-me-down toy. John Lasseter said "we always thought" that Woody was "kind of a hand-me-down" to Andy from his father.
In Toy Story, Andy receives a Buzz Lightyear action figure for his birthday. Tension erupts between Buzz and Woody, who has always prided himself on being Andy's favorite. Andy initially spends much more time with his new toy, but still has a special place in his heart for Woody. Thus, he becomes concerned when both toys go missing for a time, fearing they would be lost during his family's move to a new house.
In Toy Story 2, Andy is only seen in the beginning and briefly in the ending. During his appearances, it is clear that he still loves his toys very much. At the end of the film, Andy is pleased to have five new toys – Jessie, Bullseye, and the three Aliens – added into his collection. He marks them, as he has all his toys, with his name on the soles of their feet, or in Bullseye's case, one letter of his name on each hoof.
In Toy Story 3, Andy first appears in the brief opening scenes as a young boy through old home videos. For the remainder of the film, he is 17 years old and preparing to leave for college. He has not played with his toys for quite some time, and most of them are no longer in his possession, but he is resistant to his mother's suggestion to either donate or sell his remaining toys. He tells her no one would want his remaining toys, referring to them as "junk", which they believe is what he truly thinks, but he decides to put most of them in the attic except for Woody, whom he plans to take to college with him. When they go missing, however, he becomes upset and confused when he cannot find them. Before Andy goes to college, Woody secretly puts the address of Bonnie (the young daughter of a family friend) on the box the toys are in, causing Andy, relievingly finding them in the box, to come around to the idea of donating them. He passes them on to Bonnie and gives them each their own introduction, stating the qualities that make each of them special. When Bonnie finds Woody in the box as well, Andy shows great reluctance to pass on his favorite toy, but he ultimately relents, allowing the toys to stay together in an environment where they will be loved and played with. He spends time with Bonnie and the toys one last time before departing for college, and is noticeably sad when Bonnie has Woody "wave" to him. He then responds with a quiet "Thanks, guys".
According to Toy Story producer Ralph Guggenheim in a December 1995 Animation Magazine article, John Lasseter and the story team for Toy Story reviewed the names of Pixar employees' children, looking for the right name for Woody's owner. Davis was ultimately named after and based on Andy Luckey, the son of animator Bud Luckey, Pixar's fifth employee and the creator of Woody. Luckey has declined to publicly comment on the connection.
In the DVD feature for Toy Story 3 on the voice cast, the Pixar crew remark that they were not sure if Morris would want to reprise his role or if he would sound right for it. They were ecstatic when they heard his voice on an answering machine, believing Morris was perfect for teenage Andy.

Mrs. Davis is Andy and Molly's mother. In the first film, she has brown hair and she ties it in a ponytail. In the other two films, her physical appearance is noticeably different and instead of brown, she has blonde hair and leaves it down. Mrs. Davis is presented as a loving mother to Andy and Molly, but is a major (though indirect) threat to the toys. Mrs. Davis' actions regarding the toys sets the plot in motion in all three films, though they are not malicious. In the first film, she purchases a Buzz Lightyear toy for Andy on his birthday, prompting the rivalry between Buzz and Woody which leads to them being lost and forced to find their way home. In the second film, she puts Wheezy up for sale at a yard sale (due to a broken squeaker), prompting Woody's rescue attempt where he is subsequently stolen by Al. In the third film, she orders Andy to clean out his room before going to college and mistakenly throws away the toys Andy planned to put in the attic. Despite this, in the second film, she is overly protective of Woody, describing him as an old family toy. At the end of the third film, she breaks down and weeps at the departure of her son, but Andy reassures her that she will always be with him even if they are apart. This moment between mother and son plays a major factor in Woody deciding to have Andy donate his toys to Bonnie, thus giving them a new lease on their lives.
In 2014, blogger Jon Negroni theorized that Mrs. Davis is Jessie's original owner, Emily, based on the flashback sequence of Jessie and Emily from Toy Story 2. The sequence shows Emily as a child in the 1960s, which is when Mrs. Davis would have been a child. The sequence also shows that the cowboy hat that Emily had is very similar to Andy's hat but with an additional white lace area, and Emily's hair was brown, just like Mrs. Davis's hair in the first film.

- Bea Miller (Toy Story 3)
Molly Davis is Andy's younger sister, seen as an infant in the first film, a toddler in the second film, and as a preteen in the third film. Andy uses her crib as a town jail during playtime at the beginning of the first film, showing they share a room. When the family moves later in the film, Andy and Molly get separate rooms, though Molly has plans to move into Andy's room once he leaves for college. In the first film, she slobbers on Mr. Potato Head and throws him from the crib, causing his parts to scatter and earning her the nickname "Princess Drool" from him. At the end of the film, she receives a Mrs. Potato Head toy for Christmas. In Toy Story 3, she also owned a Barbie doll, which she donates to the daycare center as she was less interested in dolls and toys by that time.
In Toy Story 2, young Molly was voiced by co-director Lee Unkrich's daughter, Hannah Unkrich. Lee Unkrich later re-used the recordings of his daughter to portray young Molly during old home video scenes at the beginning of Toy Story 3.
Andy owns various toys who would also appear in later films.
Sheriff Woody is a 1950s old traditional pullstring cowboy doll, and Andy's favorite toy. Appearing in all three Toy Story films, he usually acts as the leader of Andy's toy group. His rivalry with Buzz forms the basis of the first film's plot. In Toy Story 2, he is stolen at a yard sale by a toy collector named Al, causing the other toys to embark on a rescue mission. In the film, it is stated that he was the star of a television series titled Woody's Roundup. In Toy Story 3, he and the other toys are shipped to a daycare center.
Buzz Lightyear is a modern-day "Space Ranger" action figure, and wears a green and white space suit with various features such as retractable wings and transparent air helmet, a laser "weapon," and various sound effects. In the films, he acts as Woody's second-in-command. In Toy Story, he begins the series believing he is a real Space Ranger (the other toys are aware that they are toys) and develops a rivalry with Woody, who resents him for getting more attention as the newcomer. His catchphrase is "To Infinity and Beyond!" During the film, he comes to realize that he is just a toy, and eventually becomes good friends with Woody. He is extremely loyal to his friends. In Toy Story 2, Buzz—with Mr. Potato Head, Hamm, Rex, and Slinky—goes to save Woody from Al, where he gets stuck in the Buzz Lightyear aisle in Al's Toy Barn by another Buzz and finds out for himself what he was really like. In Toy Story 3, a relationship begins to develop between Buzz and Jessie. He is particularly open with his affection when switched to "Spanish mode."
A 65-episode television series, Buzz Lightyear of Star Command, aired from 2000 to 2001, featuring Buzz as a real Space Ranger.
Mr. Potato HeadEdit
Voiced by Don Rickles
Mr. Potato Head (often referred to as simply Potato Head) is a Brooklyn-accented doll based on the real-life toy Mr. Potato Head by Playskool. He is an outspoken and sarcastic potato-shaped toy: his design allows him to separate his detachable parts from his body by removing them from the holes on his body. He also has a compartment on his lower back to store extra appendages. He is capable of retaining control over his parts even if they are several meters away from his main body. For example, he can still see if one or both of his detachable eyes are removed, as well as being able to move his hands if they are detached. The same thing applies to his "Mrs." counterpart, as she was able to see Andy in his room through her eye left behind. While this attribute is mostly used for comedic effect (i.e. as a running gag, he often finds himself being split or falling apart due to outside forces), it does have its uses, particularly in the second and third films. In the opening scenes of the first and third films, he is portrayed by Andy as the outlaw One-Eyed Bart.
In Toy Story, when Andy gets the Buzz Lightyear action figure for his birthday, Potato Head becomes fascinated with all of Buzz's features and ridicules Woody for having a pullstring and not having a laser like Buzz. After Buzz is knocked out of the window, Potato Head blames Woody for kicking him out, thinking that Woody might do the same to him if Andy plays with him more often, and turns the other toys against Woody and leads a mutiny with them. When Woody reveals himself at Sid's house later, Mr. Potato Head convinces the others to refuse to help him, still assuming that Woody attacked Buzz. Later when Woody catches up with them in the moving van and tosses RC onto the street to rescue Buzz, Potato Head, still distrusting Woody, orders the other toys to attack Woody and "toss him overboard". However, when Bo Peep reveals that "Woody was telling the truth," the toys realize their mistake. He holds Slinky's tail to help Woody and Buzz back at the truck but gets hit after Slinky's attempt fails, and later gets hit again when Woody tosses RC in the truck. At the end of the film, he is surprised to hear Molly receiving a Mrs. Potato Head for her Christmas present and promptly decides to shave by removing his mustache.
In Toy Story 2, he joins Buzz, Hamm, Rex, and Slinky on a mission to save Woody after Al steals him. Before they leave, Mrs. Potato Head packs some extra pair of shoes and angry eyes in his back compartment. After the toys break into Al's apartment, Potato Head attempts to frighten Jessie by reaching into his back compartment for his angry eyes, but attaches his spare pair of shoes by mistake. When the toys leave the apartment after Al leaves with Woody, Potato Head throws his hat like a frisbee to jam the closing doors, letting the toys pass through. Outside, he is the first to spot an idling Pizza Planet delivery truck nearby. While the toys chase Al in the truck, Potato Head and Hamm operate the truck's levers and knobs and are advised by three Alien toys to pull the truck's gear lever to get the truck to move. He later saves the alien toys from flying out the window. He feels annoyed when the aliens repeatedly express their eternal gratefulness towards him, but after the toys return home in a stolen baggage carrier, he reluctantly gives in when his wife wants to adopt the aliens, much to his dismay.
In Toy Story 3, Potato Head is annoyed by the aliens, who still worship him for saving their lives. Potato Head is sad that Andy does not play with his toys anymore, and is later frustrated, believing that Andy threw them away when he was actually going to store them in the attic. Again, Potato Head is the toy most doubtful of Woody when he and the other toys are almost thrown away by accident. Potato Head is excited to get played with in Sunnyside. After a rough playtime with the toddlers, he and Mrs. Potato Head's parts are scattered on the floor, and he gets his parts stuck up a child's mouth and nose. When Lotso's dark attitude is revealed, Potato Head tries to defend his friends from Lotso, so Big Baby punishes him with solitary confinement on Lotso's orders, putting him in a sandbox. The toys hatch an escape plan which Potato Head initiates by arguing with and distracting the captors, and he is thrown in the sandbox once again. Only his smaller parts are able to escape, through a small hole. He reassembles onto a floppy tortilla, checks if Lotso is sleeping and then gives a signal for the others to proceed with their plan. Pecked at by a pigeon, the tortilla falls apart, and Potato Head rejoins the other toys using a cucumber for a body before regaining his original plastic body. The toys manage to escape Sunnyside, and he and the other toys jump onto a garbage truck. Eventually, they end up in a landfill, facing death in the incinerator. However, Potato Head and the toys are saved by his alien children, who he now accepts and declares himself to be eternally grateful, just as the aliens have been saying to him. Potato Head and the other toys are donated to Bonnie at the end of the film.
Mr. Potato Head will be appearing in Toy Story 4. His voice actor, Don Rickles, had signed on for the film, but he died in 2017; a representative of Rickles said he had not recorded any lines prior to his death. Rickles' family contacted the filmmakers and asked if there was a way to include his old vocal recordings in the film. The filmmakers went through 25 years of Rickles' unused Mr. Potato Head recordings – from the previous three films, the Disney theme parks, and the Toy Story video games – to use as the character's lines for the fourth film.
Slinky Dog (usually called just Slinky or sometimes Slink) is a toy dachshund with a metal Slinky for a body, who speaks with a southern accent. Slinky's head, feet, and tail are plastic. Slinky also has a green collar. Slinky Dog is based on Slinky, a pull toy by James Industries, which was popular in the 1950s, 1960s and early 1970s. With the permission of James Industries, Slinky Dog was partially redesigned for the film by Pixar artist Bud Luckey to make him more appealing as an animated character. In the opening scenes of the first and third films, Slinky is portrayed by Andy as One-Eyed Bart's "attack dog with a built-in force field."
In Toy Story, he likes playing checkers with Woody. Slinky is shown to be the most loyal to Woody and stands up for him when Potato Head complains. Slinky is fascinated by Buzz, along with the rest of the toys, but does not make fun of Woody when Buzz arrives like the others do. When Woody knocks Buzz out of the window, Slinky is one of the few toys who believes it was an accident. Later, when Andy notices Woody is missing, he and Bo Peep are worried about him, in contrast to the others, who are glad he is gone. Later, he attempts to help when Woody throws a chain of Christmas lights from Sid's house to Andy's, but Potato Head stops him. Even Slinky appears to give up on Woody when the toys believe that Woody is a liar. He is stretched almost to the point of breaking when helping rescue Woody and Buzz on a moving truck, but is fixed by the end of the film.
At the beginning of Toy Story 2, Slinky joins Buzz, Hamm, Mr. Potato Head and Rex on a mission to rescue Woody from Al. His springy coil is used as a bungee cord when the toys jump from the roof of Andy's house. When the toys break into Al's apartment, Slinky uses his spring to hold Jessie and Bullseye back by coiling them up so the toys can safely rescue Woody. After Al packs up Woody and his Roundup gang and heads for the airport, Slinky stretches down from the elevator ceiling to retrieve Woody, but is thwarted by Prospector. While following Al to the airport on a Pizza Planet delivery truck, he operates the truck's gas and brake pedals. They manage to reach the airport and use a pet carrier to get inside. When a girl approaches them (mistaking the toys for a puppy), Slinky barks to scare her off to prevent their discovery. In an outtake, he is seen petting his own hind section and talking to it.
In Toy Story 3, Slinky is the only original character that had to be re-cast (due to Jim Varney's death), and was replaced by Blake Clark. At Sunnyside Daycare, Slinky has been tangled up by the young children, and he and his friends are later imprisoned by Lotso's gang. He is shown to be the happiest toy to see Woody return, and assists him in subduing the monkey toy who monitors the security cameras. When the toys reach the dumpster, Slinky stretches himself to create a bridge for the toys to climb across to safety, although they are stopped by Lotso. After the toys are rescued by the Aliens, he and Hamm are the most vocal about wanting to get revenge on Lotso for leaving them to die, before Woody convinces them Lotso is not worth it. Slinky is eventually donated to Bonnie along with the rest of the toys.
His catchphrase, said in all three movies, is "Golly bob-howdy!"
Slinky reappears in the short film Hawaiian Vacation, in which he acts as a hotel porter as part of Ken and Barbie's Hawaiian adventures. He also appears in Small Fry and Partysaurus Rex. He does not speak in Buzz Lightyear of Star Command: The Adventure Begins, silently appearing along with Jessie in one scene.
A ride, Slinky Dog Zigzag Spin, opened at several Disney theme parks beginning in 2010. Slinky Dog Dash, a steel roller coaster themed to Slinky Dog, opened at Disney's Hollywood Studios at Walt Disney World, in 2018.
Rex is an excitable large, green, plastic Tyrannosaurus rex. Rex suffers from anxiety, an inferiority complex and the concern that he is not scary enough. Although Rex is a toy dinosaur, he dislikes confrontation and is sensitive in nature. He is among the largest of Andy's toys, and is often depicted as the heaviest. In the opening scenes of the first and third films, he is portrayed by Andy as Woody's "dinosaur who eats force field dogs", in reference to Slinky Dog. Rex is voiced by Earl Boen (credited as "Earl Bowen") in the video game Toy Story 2: Buzz Lightyear to the Rescue (1999).
In Toy Story, he states that he was manufactured by a smaller company that was purchased in a leveraged buyout by Mattel (coincidentally, real-life Rex toys used to be made by Hasbro, but as of 2009 are indeed made by Mattel). He is first introduced when he tries to scare Woody with his roar. When Buzz arrives, Rex is fascinated by his cool features. Later, when Woody knocks Buzz out the window, he reluctantly sides against Woody out of pressure from the other toys. He is, however, a great deal less antagonistic than most of the other toys. He later feels guilty when everyone discovers Woody was telling the truth all along. He is initially concerned that Andy will get another, scarier dinosaur, but gains confidence at the end, saying he could play as the dominant predator if Andy gets a leaf eater.
At the beginning of Toy Story 2, he is shown playing a Buzz Lightyear video game, which he loses, much to his frustration. He is responsible for the toys seeing the commercial for Al's Toy Barn commercial when he accidentally clicks the remote control. When Woody was kidnapped by Al, Rex wanted to send a message to the FBI for help, but he did not know how to spell "FBI". He asks the other toys for help spelling it, and accidentally wrecks Mr. Potato Head's crime scene reenactment in the process. Rex later joins Buzz's team to rescue Woody. Inside Al's Toy Barn, he excitedly finds a Buzz Lightyear video game strategy guide and learns tips on defeating Zurg. In a parody of Jurassic Park, he chases a car driven by the toys in Al's Toy Barn, in which Mr. Potato Head spots his reflection in the rear view mirror. When the toys reach Al's apartment, they use an unwilling Rex as a battering ram to break in against the unlocked grate. When Zurg is about to kill Utility Belt Buzz Lightyear, he turns away, not bearing to look anymore, but his tail knocks Zurg down the elevator shaft, making him feel overjoyed about finally defeating Zurg for real. While following Al to the airport in a Pizza Planet delivery truck, he serves as the navigator and tells Buzz which way to go since he cannot see out the window while controlling the steering wheel.
In Toy Story 3, he is seen to be especially sad about Andy's lack of attention to the toys, expressing joy after Andy touches him for only a few seconds. When the toys are initially left for the garbage pickup, he is ultimately responsible for saving them when they use his tail to rip a hole in the garbage bag. He is initially happy to be at Sunnyside, and is visibly sad when Woody leaves, but becomes dismayed after a rough playtime with the toddlers, commenting "Andy never played with us like that!" He is imprisoned along with Andy's other toys by Lotso and his gang. When the toys are finally given to Bonnie, Rex becomes close friends with Trixie, a Triceratops.
Rex makes an appearance in an outtake of Monsters, Inc. where he waits at a crosswalk with the film's characters Sulley and Mike. In the outtake, Rex is auditioning for a role in the film. Rex is a playable character in the Toy Story Racer video game. In the movie WALL-E, Rex is seen in the background inside WALL-E's truck.
Rex reappears in the theatrical short films Hawaiian Vacation, Small Fry, Partysaurus Rex and in the TV specials Toy Story of Terror!, and Toy Story That Time Forgot. He also appears in the 2019 video game Kingdom Hearts III, with Shawn reprising his role.

- Andrew Stanton (Buzz Lightyear of Star Command: The Adventure Begins)
Hamm is a wisecracking realist piggy bank with a cork in his belly in place of a stopper. He and Mr. Potato Head are friends, and are seen in the first film playing a card game, and later Battleship (with Hamm always winning). Out of all the toys, he is shown to have the most knowledge of the outside, often being very familiar with various gadgets that are shown. In the second and third films, Andy portrays Hamm as the Evil Dr. Pork Chop. In the third film, Evil Dr. Pork Chop has a giant pig-shaped aircraft, which he uses to rescue One-Eyed Bart and One-Eyed Betty (the Potato Heads).
In Toy Story, Hamm becomes fascinated with Buzz's features and ridicules of Woody, along with Potato Head. When Woody inadvertently knocks Buzz out a window, Hamm is one of the many toys who believes that Woody did it intentionally and he turns on him. However, Hamm later realizes the truth that Buzz is alive. At the end, Hamm cheers for Potato Head when Molly gets a Mrs. Potato Head for Christmas.
In Toy Story 2, Hamm resents the Al's Toy Barn chicken mascot. After helping the toys find the Al's Toy Barn commercial on TV, Hamm goes with Buzz, Slinky, Rex, and Mr. Potato Head on a mission to rescue Woody. Later in the store, Andy's toys find a "Utility Belt" Buzz Lightyear and mistake him for Andy's Buzz, although Hamm comments on the new Buzz's odd behavior, before reuniting with the real Buzz. While following Al to the airport on a Pizza Planet delivery truck, he and Mr. Potato Head operate the truck's levers and knobs. While reading the truck's manual, Hamm states "I seriously doubt he's getting this kinda mileage".
In Toy Story 3, when the toys are accidentally thrown out, Hamm and the other toys are angry, believing that Andy threw them out on purpose. He escapes with the rest of the toys to Sunnyside Daycare, where he is initially happy to be played with, but dismayed as he realizes the toddlers are too rough. Later that night, Hamm and his friends realize that Woody was telling the truth about Andy. When the toys are imprisoned by Lotso and his henchmen, Hamm is shown to be able to play the harmonica. When Woody comes back to rescue the toys from Sunnyside, Hamm quotes "Return of the Astro-Nut" on Buzz being turned back to his demo mode to act as if he is a real Space Ranger. Hamm helps the toys escape by fighting with Rex to distract Buzz, so that Jessie can trap him under a plastic container. Hamm and Rex, being the heaviest of the toys, sit on top of the container to prevent Buzz from escaping. When Woody returns with Buzz's instruction manual to switch him back, Hamm reads the instructions while the others hold Buzz down. Later, after the toys are rescued from an incinerator-related death at the dump due to Lotso's selfishness, Hamm, along with Slinky, wants revenge, but Woody talks them both out of it. Hamm is donated along with Andy's other toys to Bonnie.
He and several other Pixar characters appear in the post-credit scene of Cars as part of a homage and self-parody to Ratzenberger (who voices the Mack Super-Liner in the film). The scene involves the main characters of Cars going to a drive-in theater and includes automotive spoofs of scenes from Toy Story, Monsters, Inc. and A Bug's Life, all featuring characters voiced by Ratzenberger.
Hamm also briefly appears in Buzz Lightyear of Star Command: The Adventure Begins, voiced by Andrew Stanton. In a 2010 television advertisement for the United States Postal Service promoting Toy Story 3, Hamm wears a postal worker's outfit while promoting the Priority Mail service; Ratzenberger is best known for his role as mailman Cliff Clavin on the long-running sitcom Cheers. He also makes an appearance in Toy Story 3: The Video Game as the mayor in Toy Box mode.
Voiced by Annie Potts (Toy Story, Toy Story 2, Toy Story 4)
Bo Peep is a porcelain figurine who serves as Woody's romantic interest. Bo Peep, inspired by the nursery rhyme "Little Bo-Peep", is a sweet-natured shepherdess accompanied by a single figure meant to resemble three sheep. In the first film, she and her sheep are detachable components of Molly's bedside lamp. In Andy's games of imaginative play, Bo Peep is used as the damsel-in-distress of the stories, and she is depicted as gentle, ladylike, and kindhearted. In the first film, after Woody's exclusion from the group when Buzz Lightyear started to attract more attention, she remained loyal to him rather than taunting him because of Buzz's rise in popularity. After Woody accidentally knocked Buzz out the window, she was one of the only toys who did not antagonize him. She continued to show her attraction to Woody in Toy Story 2, flirting with him while playing a minor role. In Toy Story 3, she only briefly appears near the film's beginning in a non-speaking role through home video footage. To his distress, Woody mentions that she had gone on to a new owner, like a few of Andy's other toys. The particular reason for her disappearance was never disclosed, though Woody shows grief over her loss. In August 2015, however, it was revealed that Bo Peep would have a major role in Toy Story 4. The fourth film would focus on her relationship with Woody, along with Woody and Buzz trying to find and bring her back. In the fourth movie, she will have a different philosophy on what it means to be a toy.
Sarge and the Bucket O SoldiersEdit
Voiced by R. Lee Ermey (Sarge)
Sarge (also known as Sergeant) is the gung-ho commander of green army men who are stored in a bucket and are known as Bucket O Soldiers. Sarge is loosely based on his voice actor's role as Gunnery Sergeant Hartman in the 1987 film Full Metal Jacket.
In Toy Story, he and the Bucket O Soldiers are set in particular positions. They are highly disciplined with a "Leave no man behind" policy and are masters of reconnaissance. Woody describes them as "professionals." The soldiers venture out of Andy's room with one of Andy's baby monitors (while the other monitor resides in Andy's room with Woody operating it) and hide in an indoor plant to report Andy's birthday presents to the toys. They announced the first few presents to the other toys in Andy's room through the monitors, but did not get to tell them that Andy got a Buzz Lightyear action figure after Rex accidentally breaks the monitor. However, they were able to warn them that Andy and his friends are coming upstairs upon Woody fixing the monitor. Sarge and his soldiers thought Woody was a murderer when he knocked Buzz out the window, so they attack Woody along with the other toys. Sarge and his soldiers reconcile with Woody following Buzz's return. At the end of the film, they hide in a Christmas tree with the baby monitor to report to the toys what Andy and Molly are getting for Christmas.
In Toy Story 2, the role of Sarge is very minor. He first orders the soldiers to keep looking for Woody's hat in the toy box. When Andy's dog Buster was about to enter the room, Sarge and his army held back the door (with help from Rocky) to prevent Buster's entry, but Buster bursts open the door, causing the soldiers to go flying everywhere. When Woody alerts the toys about the yard sale occurring outside the house, he signals Sarge for an "emergency roll call" and Sarge orders the toys to line up in a single-file line. At the end, Sarge and his soldiers watch Wheezy sing "You've Got a Friend in Me."
In Toy Story 3, several years after Toy Story 2, only Sarge and two paratroopers are seen. Woody orders Sarge and his men to retrieve Andy's cellphone as part of a plan to have Andy play with his old toys. That plan, however, fails, and believing that Andy will dispose of his toys, Sarge and his two men leave Andy's room to find a better life. Buzz believes they are going AWOL, but Sarge claims that their mission is complete and that when trash bags come out, the Army men are always the first to be thrown away. They appear again at the end of the film where they land in Sunnyside and begin a happy new life under Barbie and Ken's leadership.
RC is Andy's remote controlled buggy. He has a green body with blue splash decals on the front. RC "speaks" with revving sounds, although Mr. Potato Head and the other toys can understand him regardless. RC is a playable character in Toy Story Racer.
In Toy Story, RC was fascinated with Buzz's features. When Woody becomes really jealous, he calls out to Buzz that there is a toy trapped underneath the desk. Woody sneaks over to RC, starts him up, and tried to hit Buzz but misses. However, RC hits a board instead, causing thumbtacks on the board to fall and a globe to roll. Buzz falls out a window when the globe hits a red lamp and swings around and hits him. RC says to the other toys that Woody knocked Buzz out the window. RC then turns on Woody and thinks that he murdered Buzz. Later, when Woody enters the moving van, he gets RC out of a moving box and pushes him into the street and controls him to rescue Buzz.
After the toys mistakenly think that Woody is trying to get rid of RC, they toss Woody out of the moving truck into the street. RC finds Buzz hiding under a parked car in the streets and is thrilled to see him alive and well. Buzz and RC then pick up Woody, who switches the remote to turbo mode to catch up with the moving truck, but RC's batteries deplete, causing him to slow down and finally stop. When Woody lights the rocket taped onto Buzz's back, Woody and Buzz hold onto RC as they rocket toward the truck, but the force of the rocket lifts Woody up from RC. Nevertheless, Woody manages to toss RC back into the truck (knocking Mr. Potato Head apart in the process) before he and Buzz go skyrocketing into the air.
In Toy Story 2, RC has a very minor role. He was used when Andy played with his toys. With Buzz riding him, he crashed into Hamm (as "Evil Dr. Pork Chop") and knocked him down. He is not seen again until the end of the film, when he watched Wheezy sing "You've Got a Friend in Me".
RC does not directly appear in Toy Story 3, aside from home video footage near the beginning of the film.
RC is set to have a cameo appearance during Toy Story 4 during a flashback where Woody, Buzz, Jessie and Bo Peep have to save him from a storm outside.
RC Racer, a roller coaster ride at several Disney theme parks, features RC transporting riders.
Rocky Gibraltar is a figure of a heavyweight wrestler. Rocky is silent and plays a minor role in the movies, but he can speak in the Disney Adventures comics and in the Disney Interactive games Disney's Animated Storybook: Toy Story and Toy Story Activity Center. In Activity Center, he can be seen on the top shelf playing cards with Hamm and speaks in third-person, saying, "Rocky needs to work on brain muscles." In the first film, he is one of the toys who turn against Woody, who accidentally knocked Buzz off a window. After Woody throws RC off the moving truck, Rocky, under Mr. Potato Head's orders, tosses Woody off the truck. But when the toys realize that Woody's only use of RC is to help Buzz onto the truck, Bo Peep has Rocky lower the truck's ramp for them.
In Toy Story 2, Rocky, along with Sarge's toy soldiers, tries to hold back the door to prevent Buster from entering Andy's room, but Buster rams the door open, causing Rocky and the soldiers to go flying. Rocky is also seen holding Wheezy as Wheezy begs Buzz to rescue Woody, and when waving Buzz and his rescue squad goodbye as they leave on their mission. At the end of the movie, Rocky is seen enjoying Wheezy's rendition of "You've Got a Friend in Me." He only appears in the third film via home video footage of Andy as a child.
Andy has several toys who make brief appearances as minor characters:
- Etch – An Etch A Sketch who can draw various images quickly and accurately. In the first film, Etch sketches a hangman's noose and shows it to Woody after the toys revolt against him for knocking Buzz out of a window. In the second film, Etch helps the other toys by initially sketching portraits of Woody's kidnapper and later sketching a map showing the location of Al's Toy Barn. Etch appears in Toy Story 3 only through footage of Andy as a young boy. It is stated by Woody that Etch was among other toys of Andy's who went on to new owners.
- Lenny (voiced by Joe Ranft) – A pair of wind up binoculars used by the other toys to get a better view during various situations in the first two films. Lenny does not speak in Toy Story 2, unlike the first film. Lenny is a playable character in the Toy Story Racer video game. He also appears in Toy Story 3 through home video footage from when Andy was young.
- The Magic 8-Ball makes brief appearances in the first three films. In the first film, Woody asked the ball if Andy would pick him instead of Buzz Lightyear to take along to Pizza Planet, but the ball's reply was "Don't Count On It", making Woody upset. Woody shoves the ball away, and it falls behind a desk.
- Mr. Mike – A toy tape recorder who helped Woody amplify his voice during a toy meeting with his attached microphone. At the end of Toy Story 2, Wheezy uses him as a karaoke machine.
- Mr. Shark – A blue squeak-toy shark who appears in the first two films. In the first film, he steals Woody's hat and imitates him before he takes his hat back. In Toy Story 2, he is used as one of the death traps during Andy's playtime. At the end of the film, he repairs Wheezy by finding him an extra squeaker.
- Mr. Spell – A toy with a built-in keyboard who speaks words that are typed in. He makes brief appearances in the first two films, and it is stated that he has held toy seminars on topics such as "plastic corrosion awareness" and "what to do if you or part of you is swallowed." In Toy Story 2, Buzz uses Mr. Spell to help figure out the identity of the man who stole Woody from the yard sale. Mr. Spell does not appear in Toy Story 3.
- Robot – A robot toy. In Toy Story, he stands on his head for Buzz to run on his treads like a treadmill. In Toy Story 2, Robot assists Buzz in making sure all of Andy's toys are accounted for once they learn of a yard sale. Robot is not seen again until the end of the film when he watches Wheezy sing "You Got a Friend in Me". Robot only appears in Toy Story 3 through old home videos near the beginning of the film.
- Snake – A green and purple rattlesnake toy who communicates through hissing. Snake has brief appearances in the first two films, and only appears at the beginning of Toy Story 3 through old home videos.
- Troikas – A set of five non-talking egg-shaped toys that appear in Toy Story and Toy Story 2. They are various sizes, with one being able to fit inside another, like Matryoshka dolls.
- A Troll doll with pink hair and a blue bathing suit appears in the first two films. In the first film, it became fascinated with Buzz and is also seen lifting weights with him. In Toy Story 2, it is seen alongside Bo Peep, helping search for Woody's hat before Andy takes him along to a summer camp. It briefly appears in Toy Story 3 through old home videos of Andy as a child. A group of Troll dolls also appears in the third film's opening sequence, in which they are portrayed as orphans on a runaway train during Andy's playtime.

Sid Phillips is Andy's neighbor until Andy moves, but it is unknown if he and Andy know each other. Sid is known for torturing and destroying toys. Many of his toys are either destroyed, have missing pieces, or replaced with parts from other toys. He is also shown tormenting his sister and destroying her toys by certain methods such as exploding, burning, and decapitating them. He also enjoys skateboarding, and his shirt depicts a skull that would later be used as the logo for Zero Skateboards. The toys mention that he was consistently kicked out of summer camp; and in the audio commentary on the tenth anniversary DVD, the directors mention that he is a bully but also the "most creative character in the movie". His parents do not make any major appearances: his mother's voice is only heard briefly several times in the film, and his father is only seen briefly asleep on a chair in front of a TV.
He is the only human in the film to observe toys actually coming to life, when near the end of the first film, Woody and Sid's mutant toys decide to rescue Buzz by scaring Sid, which causes him to become very frightened of toys. The last straw is Woody coming alive and telling him to take good care of his toys or else. This causes Sid to panic and run back into his house screaming, and then to his room when his sister scares him with her toy doll.
Sid does not appear in the second film, although he is mentioned once by Buzz during the toys' mission to rescue Woody from the toy collector Al McWhiggin. Sid also appears in the four-issue Monsters, Inc. comic mini-series produced by Boom! Comics.
In the third film, Sid (now an adult) makes brief appearances in two scenes once again voiced by Erik von Detten. He is shown to be a garbageman with a small beard, recognizable by his characteristic skull T-shirt. His only dialogue in this movie involves humming guitar riffs, and he is depicted listening to heavy metal music through a pair of large headphones.

Hannah Phillips is Sid's sweet-natured, younger sister who appears a few times in the film. Hannah has adjusted to her toys being mutilated by Sid. Most of her dolls either have different heads or altered body parts, and at the end of the film she finds enjoyment in scaring her brother after he has been horrified by Woody and the other toys. She spends most of the time during the movie playing with her altered dolls.
Sid and Hannah's toysEdit
The following toys belong to Sid and Hannah.
Hannah has several dolls, although some have been beheaded by Sid. During the film, one of Hannah's rag dolls, Janie, is taken by Sid, who switches her head with that of a toy Pteranodon. Hannah also has a rag doll named Sally.
Sid has various mutant toys who are assembled by him from mixed pieces of several toys that belong to him and Hannah. Sid's mutant toys do not speak, but they understand Morse code. Buzz and Woody initially think that they are cannibals who are going to eat them, before they learn that the toys are actually friendly and compassionate. They fix Buzz's broken arm, Janie and the Pteranodon, and also help Woody implement his plan to save Buzz from Sid. They surround Sid as Woody tells him how much they hate being mutilated, and they all rejoice in victory after Woody frightens Sid away with his own voice. After Sid is scared by his toys, he sees Sally, then runs off in fright, thinking that Sally will come to life. Sid's mutant toys include:
- Babyface – A one-eyed baby doll head staked on top of a spider-like body with crab-like pincers made of Erector Set pieces. Babyface is shown communicating with the other toys by banging in Morse code on the side of Sid's metal bedpost with his big claw. This method is used when he signals the other mutant toys to gather around to listen to Woody as he formulates his plan to rescue Buzz from Sid. When the mutant toys surround Sid, Babyface, suspended by Legs, lands on Sid's head, scaring him. Babyface appears in Toy Story Treats, and is a playable character in the 2001 video game Toy Story Racer. In 2010, Disney released a remote-controlled Babyface toy.
- Legs – A toy fishing rod with doll legs. When Woody formulates his plan to save Buzz from Sid, he assigns Legs to partner up with Ducky. Legs opens the vent grating so she and Ducky can go to the front porch, where Legs lowers Ducky through the hole Ducky created so Ducky can swing toward the doorbell. After Ducky catches the Frog, Legs pulls both toys up to safety. Later, when the mutant toys advance on Sid, Legs lowers Babyface onto Sid's head, scaring him. Legs also appears in Toy Story Treats.
- A jack-in-the-box toy with a green arm that pops out. During Woody's plan to save Buzz from Sid, the toy extends its hand to Sid's doorknob, ready to open the door when the signal comes. The hand later grabs Sid's leg when the mutant toys surround him. The toy also appears in Toy Story Treats.
- Roller Bob – A jet pilot action figure, whose torso has been attached to a skateboard. After the Frog is let out of Sid's room to distract Scud, Roller Bob ferries Woody and the other mutant toys outside the house to Sid's yard.
- Rock Mobile – The head of a toy insect attached on top of a small, headless human torso toy who is holding a steering wheel. This torso is attached in the head socket of a larger, muscular human torso toy that is missing its legs.
- Frog – A tin wind-up frog with two different wheels instead of back legs. The Frog is also missing its left front foot. As part of Woody's plot to rescue Buzz from Sid, Woody orders, "Wind the Frog!", at which point the frog is wound up. When Ducky rings the doorbell, the Frog is let out of Sid's room, allowing Scud to chase him down the stairs and out to the front porch, where he is caught by Ducky; Legs reels both toys up to safety.
- Ducky – A triple toy combination: a duck-headed Pez dispenser with a baby doll torso and plunger base. He and Legs go to the front porch via the vent, and Ducky, suspended from the porch ceiling by Legs, swings toward the doorbell until he finally activates it, giving Woody the signal to release the Frog. Ducky catches the Frog as Legs reels both toys up to safety.
Additionally, Sid has a non-mutant soldier toy called Combat Carl, who is blown up by Sid with an explosive device. Combat Carl is Caucasian; a different character with the same name, who is African-American, appears in Toy Story of Terror!
Aliens / Little Green MenEdit
The Aliens, also known as Little Green Men (or "LGMs") in the Buzz Lightyear of Star Command television series, are a series of green, three-eyed squeaky toy aliens. They appear in all three films. In Toy Story 2, three aliens become part of Andy's toy collection and are adopted by Mr. and Mrs. Potato Head. In the third film, Mr. Potato Head refers to them as his boys, implying that all three are male.
In Toy Story, Buzz and Woody climb inside a giant rocket-shaped claw game at Pizza Planet. Inside the claw game are hundreds of squeeze toy aliens. When Buzz asks who is in charge, the Aliens say "the claw", which belongs in the machine; they say that the claw "chooses who will go and who will stay". Sid spots Buzz inside the claw game and tries to win him. Woody attempts to save Buzz and escape through the claw game's maintenance hatch, but the Aliens stop him and say that they must not fight the claw. Woody, Buzz, and an Alien get taken to Sid's house. Sid gives the Alien to his dog, Scud, who violently chews it as Woody and Buzz watch in horror. Near the end of the movie, the same Alien is seen to be intact as he walks like a zombie toward Sid, part of Woody's plan to scare him.
In Toy Story 2, a trio of aliens are hanging above the dashboard in the Pizza Planet truck. Buzz groans when he sees them, remembering them from the claw game in the first film. When the toys are having trouble getting the truck to move, the aliens tell Mr. Potato Head to "use the wand of power", referring to the truck's gear lever. They nearly fall out of the window, due to the sharp turns from Buzz trying to catch Al in his car. Mr. Potato Head saves the aliens, and they are thankful to him. Throughout the rest of the movie, they frequently say "You have saved our lives, we are eternally grateful," much to Potato Head's dismay. The Aliens join the quest to save Woody and mistake the entrance to the baggage area for the "Mystic Portal". Back home, the trio, along with Bullseye and Jessie, end up becoming some of Andy's toys. They say their gratefulness to Mr. Potato Head, and Mrs. Potato Head is so happy that he saved their lives, she decides they should adopt them, with the Aliens calling Mr. Potato Head "Daddy".
In the opening sequence of Toy Story 3, the Aliens are portrayed by Andy as the henchmen under One-Eyed Bart and One-Eyed Betty (the Potato Heads), serving as the getaway drivers in a Chevrolet Corvette. In the present time, the trio continues to express their gratefulness to Mr. Potato Head. They are later donated to Sunnyside along with the rest of Andy's toys. In Sunnyside, the Aliens find a toy crane, which reminds them of the claw game in Pizza Planet. The Aliens get sat on and bounced on during a rough playtime with the toddlers. The toys plan to escape Sunnyside. The Aliens have to go through the playground with Woody and ride on Bullseye. They almost get caught by Big Baby because one of the Aliens falls off Bullseye and squeaks, but manage to hide inside a pail. Later when Andy's toys escape, one of the Alien's feet gets stuck in the lid of a trash bin. After Woody rescues the Alien, Lotso, who had been thrown into the bin, grabs Woody's feet and pulls him inside just as the garbage truck arrives. The toys are collected by the truck and subsequently sent to a landfill. The Aliens are separated from the others by a bulldozer when they wander off, having spotted a crane. They are later revealed to be in control of a giant claw crane, which they used to rescue the other toys from an incinerator. Mr. Potato Head finally acknowledges them as his children, reciting their repetitive line, "You have saved our lives and we are eternally grateful." The trio are later donated to Bonnie along with Andy's other toys.
The Aliens reappear in the theatrical short films Hawaiian Vacation, Small Fry and Partysaurus Rex, and the 2019 video game Kingdom Hearts III. The Aliens also have a ride at Disney theme parks called Alien Swirling Saucers.
Scud is Sid's aggressive Bull Terrier. His viciousness is first demonstrated when Sid sets a squeeze toy Alien on his nose and commands him to maul it mercilessly. Scud is an obstacle for Woody and Buzz as they try to escape Sid's house. Scud later spots Woody and Buzz trying to reach the moving van and pursues them, but is eluded when he runs after them into the middle of a traffic intersection and is trapped by the cars as they crash while trying to avoid him.
Toy Story 2 (1999)Edit
The following characters are introduced in Toy Story 2 (1999).
Voiced by Wayne Knight
Al McWhiggin – nicknamed "The Chicken Man" by Andy's toys –is the owner of "Al's Toy Barn", which is mentioned as a chain of stores in the first Toy Story during an advertisement for Buzz Lightyear toys. Al is first seen in Toy Story 2 during a Toy Barn television advertisement in which he is dressed up in a chicken suit. Al is an obsessive and greedy collector of all things related to the old Woody's Roundup TV show. He is unscrupulously obsessive, overweight, very impatient, and lazy, as he complains of having to "drive all the way to work on a Saturday", despite his apartment only being across the street from the store. He tries to buy Woody in a yard sale held by Andy's mother when he accidentally ends up there, but when she refuses to sell the toy, Al steals Woody to complete his collection and sell it to a toy museum in Tokyo, Japan. Andy's toys eventually rescue Woody, foiling Al's plans to sell his Woody's Roundup collection. During his latest commercial soon after, Al is unable to control himself from hysterically sobbing over his losses as a result.
Al was originally conceived to appear in the first Toy Story film, but was cut in the final screenplay. His physical appearance is partially inspired by his voice actor Wayne Knight; during the production of Toy Story 2, Knight had a goatee like Al in the movie. Cartoonist and animator Scott Shaw has also been acknowledged as another model and inspiration for Al, while the film's director John Lasseter said that Al is inspired by himself. According to Disney Adventures, Al was not permitted to play with his toys when he was a child, which led to his toy-collecting niche.
His car's license plate reads LZTYBRN, which is "Al's Toy Barn" (minus the vowel letters). It is also the actual license plate of Ash Brannon, co-director of Toy Story 2, according to the Toy Story 2: Special Edition commentary.

Jessie is a cowgirl doll, and part of the Woody's Roundup gang. Jessie is also Buzz Lightyear's girlfriend. In Toy Story 2, Jessie is initially hesitant to join Andy's toys. After she becomes part of the family, she is very happy. In Toy Story 3, she believes Andy threw her and the other toys out; she argues with Woody, who says Andy was actually putting them in the attic. Later in the film, Jessie becomes close with Buzz, especially when he is in Spanish mode. At the end, they dance to the Spanish version of "You've Got a Friend in Me." Jessie also appears in Pixar's 2013 television special Toy Story of Terror! as the main character that saves the other toys from the toy stealer and seller at the rest stop.
Stinky Pete the ProspectorEdit
Voiced by Kelsey Grammer
Stinky Pete the Prospector, commonly known as Prospector, is a prospector doll. He is a toy modeled after a character on the fictional television show, Woody's Roundup, which also includes the characters of Sheriff Woody, Jessie, and Bullseye. The Prospector doll seen in the film had never been opened and was still "mint in the box".
In contrast to the character on the show, Prospector is intelligent, manipulative, and well-spoken. Prospector mentions that he had spent "a lifetime on a dime store shelf watching every other toy be sold." Collector Al McWhiggin eventually found Prospector, who spent years in storage while Al searched for a Woody doll to add to his collection of Woody's Roundup merchandise. After Al had stolen Woody, Prospector and Jessie were excited because now they could go to the Konishi Toy Museum in Tokyo, where they would be treated with respect. Woody reveals that he has an owner named Andy, which infuriates Jessie and leads Prospector to become determined to make sure Woody does not go back to Andy at any cost. Prospector openly expresses his hatred for space toys like Buzz Lightyear, whom he blames for causing Woody's Roundup to be canceled after the launch of Sputnik, which made children all over America lose their interest in cowboy toys, shifting their interest to space adventures instead.
After Al accidentally rips off Woody's arm, Woody attempts to retrieve his arm while Al is sleeping. Prospector secretly leaves his box and sabotages Woody's attempt by turning on a television to wake Al. Prospector says he does not know how the TV turned on, and Woody believes him. After Woody's arm is fixed, Prospector tells Woody he would be treasured forever at the museum, and that Andy will not play with him anymore by the time he goes to college. Woody then agrees to stay with them instead of going back to Andy, much to Prospector, Jessie and Bullseye's delight.
After Woody's friends arrive at Al's apartment to retrieve him, Woody decides to return to Andy. Woody invites the Roundup gang to come with him to Andy's house, but Prospector disapproves of the idea, wanting to go to the museum instead. He prevents Woody from escaping, and it is discovered in the process that he is capable of leaving his box, making Woody believe that he was the one who turned on the television the night before.
In the luggage area of the airport, Prospector punches Buzz when he tries to rescue Woody, who fights Prospector for harming his friend. When Woody refuses to get back in Al's luggage as ordered, Prospector prepares to harm Woody with his pickaxe, but he is blinded by Andy's other toys using flash cameras that they found in a different luggage case. Prospector tells them that children destroy toys and that they will be ruined, forgotten, and left to spend "eternity rotting in some landfill." Knowing it will make him learn the true meaning of playtime, the toys place Prospector inside a backpack that belongs to a little girl named Amy, who enjoys decorating her Barbie doll's face with tattoos. After the film's release, the film's website featured interviews with the characters. In Prospector's interview, he has reformed and said that he has become accustomed to Amy decorating him, as well of being fond of Amy herself. According to the DVD commentary, the Pixar team had deliberated for a while what the proper comeuppance for Prospector would be before it was decided for him to be placed in a Barbie bag with a face-painted Barbie.
According to his box, Prospector has a total of 9 sayings. In one outtake, he is seen talking to two Barbie dolls in the box, saying that he could probably get them a role in the third film. In another outtake, Prospector suffers a bout of flatulence and says, "I guess that's why they call me Stinky Pete."
Prospector's comments – about children destroying toys, Andy not taking Woody to college, and toys ending up in landfills – partially come true in Toy Story 3. Prospector does not appear in the third film, but does appear in the Toy Box mode of Toy Story 3: The Video Game, although Grammer did not reprise the role.
Bullseye is a toy horse and is part of the Woody's Roundup collection. In the fictional Woody's Roundup television series, Bullseye is portrayed as Woody's horse. In Toy Story 2, he was very happy to finally see Woody after a long time in storage. Bullseye is shown to loathe fights as he hides in a can when Jessie jumps on Woody. He is also upset at Woody's intention to abandon the Roundup gang to return to Andy, as Bullseye does not want Woody to leave. When Woody ultimately decides to return to Andy's room, it is Bullseye's loyalty that causes Woody to try to get the other Roundup toys to join him. At the airport, Woody and Buzz Lightyear ride Bullseye across the airfield to rescue Jessie from an airplane headed to Japan. After rescuing her, the toys return home, and both Bullseye and Jessie become part of Andy's toy collection. Bullseye has every letter of Andy's name printed on the sole of each of his hooves. Bullseye acts like a dog in many ways. Unlike most of the other toys, Bullseye cannot communicate in clear speech but sounds like an actual horse and uses body language to speak. According to a character interview that used to be on the Toy Story website, Bullseye communicated with Jessie while in storage by tapping his hooves to yes or no questions.
Bullseye returns in Toy Story 3 as one of the remaining toys in Andy's room. In the film's opening sequence, he is used by Woody during Andy's playtime. In the film's present time, Bullseye is sad that Andy no longer plays with him and the other toys. After they are donated to Sunnyside Daycare, Bullseye makes it clear he wants Woody to stay with him. He only stays when Woody tells him to, since Woody does not want him to be alone in the attic at Andy's house. After the rough toddler play session, Bullseye is covered with paint and has a blue sticker in his snout, which is removed by Jessie. When Lotso is revealed to be evil, he locks the toys up and shows them Woody's hat, making Bullseye miss Woody. When Woody returns to Sunnyside, Bullseye is extremely happy and gives him back his hat. Bullseye helps the toys escape Sunnyside by accompanying Woody and carrying the aliens on his back. At the end of the film, Bullseye is donated to Bonnie, along with the rest of the toys. In Bonnie's room, Bullseye changes the channel of a radio to a Spanish channel, causing Buzz and Jessie to dance to the Spanish version of "You've Got a Friend in Me."
Mrs. Potato HeadEdit
Voiced by Estelle Harris
Mrs. Potato Head is Mr. Potato Head's wife and female counterpart. Unlike her husband, Mrs. Potato Head is sweet and not hot-headed or impatient. Although mentioned as one of Molly's Christmas presents near the end of the first movie, she is not seen until Toy Story 2. Although she is stated to be Molly's toy in the first film, Andy plays with her in the subsequent films.
In Toy Story 2, before her husband leaves with Buzz and his troops, she stores his extra pair of shoes and "angry eyes" into his back compartment. She also warns the toys by saying "Don't talk to any toy you don't know!" She is not seen again until the end of the film, when she becomes the adoptive mother of the three Aliens that Andy's toys had found in the Pizza Planet truck.
In Toy Story 3, she has a larger role. In the film's opening scenes, she is portrayed by Andy as "One-Eyed Betty", the outlaw wife to Mr. Potato Head's "One-Eyed Bart." As One-Eyed Betty, she has ninja and nunchuk skills, and has robbed gold with her husband. In the film's present time, she is one of the toys who believe Andy threw them out on purpose. They are later donated to Sunnyside Daycare, where she and her husband experience a rough playtime with the toddlers. Mrs. Potato Head had lost an eye at Andy's house before being donated, and she is later able to see through her missing eye that Andy is looking for the toys in his room. She tells the toys it truly was an accident that they were thrown away. When Lotso is revealed to be evil, Mrs. Potato Head yells at him and demands respect, so Lotso briefly takes off her mouth. Near the end of the film, she is saved from death in an incinerator by her adoptive children, and much to her delight, her husband now accepts them. She recovers her missing eye before she and the toys are donated to Bonnie. Even though she was Molly's Christmas gift in the first film, the second and third films imply that she is one of Andy's toys.
Mrs. Potato Head reappears in the theatrical short film Hawaiian Vacation and acts as a tour guide for Ken and Barbie in their Hawaiian adventures. She also reappears in Small Fry and Partysaurus Rex.
Tour Guide BarbieEdit
Voiced by Jodi Benson
Tour Guide Barbie is a Barbie doll at Al's Toy Barn. When Hamm, Slinky Dog, Rex and Mr. Potato Head come upon the Barbie aisle at Al's Toy Barn while searching for Woody, Tour Guide Barbie hops into the toy car they are driving and gives them a tour of the store. After the outtakes of the film, Tour Guide Barbie serves as a cinema usher for the remainder of the end credits, waving goodbye to the audience. After a while, she asks if everyone has gone and promptly stops smiling, complaining that it hurts her face. She then leaves to take a break.

The cleaner is an elderly specialist in toy restoration and repair with a fully loaded toy repair kit. He comes to Al's apartment to fix Woody up in preparation of selling him to the toy museum. He insists that Al let him take his time with the work and views it as more than a simple job, asserting, "You can't rush art."
The character model was previously used to portray Geri (voiced by Bob Peterson) in Pixar's 1997 short, Geri's Game, where he plays a chess game against himself. In Toy Story 2, one of the drawers in the cleaner's carrying case contains chess pieces, a reference to the short.

- Phil LaMarr (Toy Story 3: The Video Game)
Wheezy is Andy's squeeze toy penguin with a red bow tie. He is introduced when Woody finds him on a shelf, where Wheezy had been placed after his squeaker broke, upsetting Andy. To calm Andy down, his mother had told him that she would have Wheezy's squeaker fixed later, but then she put him on the shelf, where he was left for months. Wheezy is about to be sold at a yard sale, and in saving him, Woody ends up stuck at the yard sale himself and is subsequently stolen by Al. At the end of the film, Wheezy gets a new squeaker and sings "You've Got a Friend in Me," the ending theme of the movie. During the outtakes, he describes himself as "not a good catcher" as he fails to catch Mr. Mike's microphone thus hurting himself several times.
Wheezy does not directly appear in Toy Story 3, except in footage showing Andy as a young boy. It is stated by Woody that Wheezy was among other toys of Andy's who went on to new owners. Wheezy appears in Toy Story 3: The Video Game, where he is voiced by Phil LaMarr in Toy Box mode along with Bo Peep.
Utility Belt Buzz LightyearEdit
Voiced by Tim Allen
When searching for Woody at Al's Toy Barn, Buzz comes across the Buzz Lightyear aisle, causing him to stare in awe. While looking around, Buzz notices that there is a display case labeled "New Utility Belt." Buzz then climbs up the display case to find a newer Buzz Lightyear with a Utility Belt. When Buzz tries to take the belt, the newer Buzz (who thinks he is a real Space Ranger, similar to Andy's Buzz in the original film) springs to life and grabs him, believing him to be an AWOL Space Ranger. Buzz finds himself wondering out loud if he was this deluded, which Utility Belt Buzz mistakes for talking back and threatens to use his laser on him. Buzz tries to prove to him that he is not an actual Space Ranger, but gives up and leaves, only for Utility Belt Buzz to attack him and trap him inside a Buzz Lightyear toy box. Utility Belt Buzz is mistaken for the original Buzz by Andy's toys. When Rex mentions that he knows how to defeat Emperor Zurg—having recently acquired a walkthrough guide for the Buzz Lightyear video game that he has been stuck on–Utility Belt Buzz quickly decides to join the toys to learn more. On their way to Al's apartment, Andy's toys become increasingly suspicious of Utility Belt Buzz's behavior, until they are reunited with the real Buzz in Al's apartment.
Later, the group encounters an Emperor Zurg toy in the elevator shaft, and Utility Belt Buzz engages him in battle, similar to how they fought in the video game that Rex played. When Utility Belt Buzz claims Zurg killed his father, Zurg responds he is his father, causing Utility Belt Buzz to scream in dismay (a parody of The Empire Strikes Back). Rex, with his tail, accidentally knocks Zurg off the elevator. Utility Belt Buzz is last seen playing catch with his "father," the Zurg toy, whose attitude towards Utility Belt Buzz has changed after the fall.
Evil Emperor ZurgEdit
- Andrew Stanton (Toy Story 2)
- Wayne Knight (Buzz Lightyear of Star Command)
- Jess Harnell (mini counterpart in Small Fry)
- James Patrick Stuart (Disney Magic Kingdoms)
Evil Emperor Zurg is a space villain action figure and Buzz Lightyear's archenemy. He has red evil eyes with neon gritting teeth, silver horns on his head, and a purple tunic with a black cape on it. He usually carries a gun.
In the first film, Zurg is mentioned by Buzz but does not make an appearance. Zurg is first seen during a battle with Buzz in the opening sequence of the second film, in which he vaporizes the top half of Buzz's body with his gun, killing him. It is then revealed that the opening sequence was actually a video game played by Rex.
As the story progresses, a Zurg toy in Al's Toy Barn bursts out from its box and follows Andy's Buzz Lightyear, who is on the way to rescue Woody from Al McWhiggin. Zurg is deluded, similar to Andy's Buzz in the first film. In the second film, another copy of Buzz Lightyear, deluded in the same way, escapes from Al's Toy Barn and battles with Zurg on top of an elevator. In a reference to the relationship of Luke Skywalker and Darth Vader, the principal hero and villain respectively of the original Star Wars trilogy, Evil Emperor Zurg claims he is in fact the father of Buzz, in an almost word-for-word parody of the scene in The Empire Strikes Back. As Zurg attempts to finish off Buzz at point-blank range, Rex accidentally hits Zurg with his large tail and sends him falling down the elevator shaft. The second Buzz looks down the shaft in despair, thinking he has lost his father, while Rex is excited that he has finally managed to defeat Zurg. Near the end of the film, Zurg is seen to have survived his fall with a bent horn and is now playing catch with the second Buzz. In the novelization, however, Zurg is killed by the fall, and Buzz finds him and takes him back to Al's Toy Barn to bury him.
In Toy Story 3, Zurg appears briefly during a sequence in the end credits, where he is donated to Sunnyside Daycare center and greeted by the resident toys.
Zurg also appears in Buzz Lightyear of Star Command and its direct-to-video movie Buzz Lightyear of Star Command: The Adventure Begins. In the TV series, he is the warlord-like ruler of an evil empire and is in command of an army of Hornet robots and a minion workforce. In various media surrounding the film, his planet is said to be called Xrghthung. However, because this is unpronounceable in the TV series it is changed to simply "Planet Z." This version of Zurg is frequently gullible and bungling, and has various comedic habits, which includes maintaining a troll doll collection. He is also evidently highly intelligent, able to concoct sound military tactics and evil schemes. Additionally, he occasionally references stereotypes of typical evil villains and intentionally violates them, showing how aware he is of his similarity to them. For example, when designing a vast prison on Planet Z, he declines building an execution arena, for it simply "gives the captives more time to get away." When he was designing a schematic for a new base, he expressly forbade air vents that allow "hero-sized objects" into the control room. "And, may I remind you, no giant trash compactor! When heroes fall in, they always have enough time to figure a way out. Make it—an incinerator!" In the series, Zurg says he is Lightyear's father during a fight in order to shock Lightyear, before regaining the advantage during the fight and then denying the truth of that previous claim.
Zurg appears as a playable character in Toy Story 3: The Video Game on the PlayStation 3 in Toy Box Mode after completing several missions. He also has a convertible (the ZurgsMobile) that matches his personality. His mini counterpart is featured in the short film Small Fry.
Emily is Jessie's former owner and is mentioned by her in the film. She appears in a flashback musical sequence while "When She Loved Me" by Sarah McLachlan is played. During this sequence, Jessie tells Woody of her experience with Emily, and why she now resented being a child's toy. As a young child, Emily was a fan of the Wild West and horses, along with the Woody's Roundup TV show. As she became a teenager, her interest began to shift towards makeup, pop culture of the time and gossip with her friends which led to Jessie being neglected and eventually donated. She is mentioned by Jessie in the third film, when she fears of being thrown away by Andy, saying "I should've seen this coming! It's Emily all over again!"
Buster is Andy's pet dachshund, whom he receives as a puppy offscreen at the end of Toy Story. In Toy Story 2, Buster is depicted as being very energetic, and is nice to Andy's toys. He obeys commands given to him by Woody: when Wheezy is taken by Andy's mother to be sold at a yard sale, Woody is able to command Buster to carry him down to the yard sale so he can rescue Wheezy. However, he does not respond to commands from Andy. Slinky is able to communicate with Buster due to the fact they are both dogs.
In Toy Story 3, Buster is now older, visibly aged, and overweight. Because of that, he is unable to help Woody rescue Andy's other toys, instead falling asleep. He stays with Mrs. Davis while Andy goes to college.
Toy Story 3 (2010)Edit
Much of the film takes place at the Sunnyside Daycare center, where the following toys live.
Voiced by Ned Beatty
Lots-O'-Huggin' Bear (Lotso for short) is a plush, hot pink teddy bear with a big plum nose, a strawberry scent and a southern accent, who uses a wooden toy mallet as an assistive cane (although he is still able to walk even without it). He is the leader of the toys at the Sunnyside Daycare center. He initially acts like a kind-hearted and wise caretaker, but is eventually revealed to be a ruthless prison warden.
In Toy Story 3, he welcomes Andy's toys to Sunnyside and assigns them to the Caterpillar Room. Woody tries to escape from Sunnyside so he could go back to Andy, but is instead found and taken by a little girl named Bonnie. Woody learns from Chuckles, one of Bonnie's toys, that Lotso was once owned and loved by a girl named Daisy, having become Daisy's favorite toy when she obtained it for Christmas. Lotso became friends with Chuckles and Big Baby. One day, Daisy and her family had a picnic in the countryside. When she fell asleep, her parents drove her home, inadvertently leaving the toys behind. Not wanting to give up, Lotso led his two friends on a long trek back to Daisy's house, only to discover that Daisy had gotten another Lots-O'-Huggin' Bear. Lotso became embittered and convinced Big Baby that they had been replaced, leaving Daisy's home with Chuckles. Lotso eventually discovered Sunnyside Daycare and turned it into an internment camp for toys. Big Baby took on the role of Lotso's enforcer, while Chuckles was broken, and was discovered by Bonnie and taken home.
After a rough playtime with the children in the Caterpillar Room, Buzz requests a transfer of himself and the rest of Andy's toys to the Butterfly Room, where the children are peaceful. Thinking that Buzz may be useful to him, Lotso only grants a transfer to Buzz. When Buzz refuses Lotso's offer, Lotso defaults Buzz to demo mode and manipulates him into imprisoning Andy's other toys.
When Woody and Andy's toys attempt to flee from the daycare center, Lotso catches the group and once again offers them to stay at Sunnyside when a garbage truck arrives, but the toys refuse. Woody argues with Lotso over his wrongdoings and reveals to him what he knows about Daisy and tosses Daisy's ownership tag to him; Lotso destroys it and says that toys are supposed to be discarded. He instructs Stretch to push the toys into a dumpster, but Big Baby turns on Lotso and throws him into the dumpster instead. As the toys attempt to flee, a vengeful Lotso pulls Woody into the dumpster just as the truck collects it to get the other toys to be sent to the dump.
At the landfill, the toys end up on a conveyor belt leading to a shredder. Finding Lotso stuck under a large golf bag, Woody and Buzz rescue him and escape the shredder, only to realize that it leads to an incinerator. As they are about to reach the incinerator, Lotso sees an emergency stop button, and with Woody and Buzz's help, manages to reach it. However, instead of pushing the button, he chooses to leave them behind, as he is still evil. When Woody and the toys are rescued by the aliens, Hamm and Slinky want to get back at Lotso for leaving them to die, but Woody talks them out of it, claiming that "he's not worth it". Lotso is eventually found by a garbage man who recalls that he once had a Lots-O'-Huggin' Bear as a child, and straps Lotso to the grill of a garbage truck with three other toys before driving away.
Lotso was intended to be in the first film (originally for a sequel to Tin Toy), but the technology to design the fur to the proper consistency had yet to exist until Monsters, Inc. in 2001, so he was saved for the third film. However, an early version of Lotso makes a brief appearance in the first film, and can be seen in the second film during the first Al's Toy Barn commercial.
Test audiences who had sympathized with Lotso for his backstory had wanted him to push the button in the incinerator scene to redeem himself. However, according to the DVD commentary, director Lee Unkrich explained that Lotso not pushing the button to save the toys was intended for the audience to really care about the characters after three films of getting to know them when it looked like it was the end for them in the incinerator. The Pixar team took note of the people's concerns and made Lotso to be an outright, selfish liar.
Ned Beatty was nominated for an MTV Movie Award for Best Villain for his performance as Lotso, and Pixar and he received widespread praise for the character's back story and Beatty's performance. IGN named Lotso the best villain of the summer of 2010.
Voiced by Michael Keaton
Ken is a smooth-talking doll who falls in love with Barbie. He is based on the real Ken doll by Mattel. He first appears wearing light blue pleated and cuffed shorts, and a tucked-in leopard-print shirt with short sleeves. His accessories include matching ascot, sensible loafers and a fashion-forward gold belt. He lives in Ken's Dreamhouse, a big yellow doll house with three stories, a large wardrobe room, and an elevator. Barbie originally breaks up with Ken when she finds him, Lotso, his other henchmen, and a reset Buzz Lightyear locking up her friends and discovering their ulterior motive. Piqued, Ken orders her locked up as well.
However, as part of a plan to escape, she pretends to forgive Ken, gaining access to his dream house. Barbie then ties Ken hostage to try to get him to reveal how to reset Buzz back to normal. As a provocation, she entangles him in an ironing board and rips his clothing apart. Ken reveals the truth after she begins to sabotage his prized Nehru jacket. He is not seen again until Lotso has the toys cornered at the dumpster, where he is the first to turn on Lotso. Ken comes to Barbie's help by trying to stop Lotso. Lotso tells Ken "there's 100,000,000 just like her", but Ken insists that for him, there is no one else like her, and wins back her affections.
In the end credits of the film, he and Barbie are seen greeting new toys at Sunnyside as Barbie becomes his girlfriend again, and with Lotso gone, they both take charge of the Sunnyside toys as the new leaders. His appearance is based on a real Ken doll from 1988 called Animal Lovin' Ken. Due to being called a "girl's toy," it is often joked about his femininity: such as his large selection and obsession with clothes, him wearing Barbie's scarf, his rather feminine boxer-shorts, as well as at the end Buzz believing Barbie wrote them the fancy note, only to discover Ken's signature at the end.
Ken, along with Barbie, appears in the theatrical short, Hawaiian Vacation, in which the two embark on a journey to Hawaii, but ends up in Bonnie's room, where Woody and the other toys reenact various Hawaiian scenes.
Voiced by Jodi Benson
A Barbie doll is one of the toys that Andy's sister, Molly, owns until she decides to donate it. At Sunnyside, she falls in love with Ken, but after Lotso's minions reset Buzz's personality, and reveal that they want to sacrifice Andy's old toys in order to protect themselves, she ingratiates herself with Ken in order to obtain the Buzz Lightyear manual that lets her friends reset Buzz to his former self. When she stands up to Lotso by saying that being treated fairly is better than living under his rule, Ken switches his allegiance to her and her friends. In the end credits of the film, they get back together and change Sunnyside, becoming its co-leaders, after Lotso is defeated.
Barbie appears with Ken in Hawaiian Vacation. They sneak out of the daycare and stowaway in Bonnie's backpack to go to Hawaii but Ken is disappointed to find out that Bonnie did not take her backpack on her family vacation. The gang creates their own Hawaiian paradise to cheer Ken and Barbie up. They share their first kiss outside and then get trapped in the snow.
She was modeled after the 1983 doll Great Shape Barbie.
Voiced by Woody Smith
Big Baby is a Bitty Baby doll with a lazy eye who carries around a bottle and is adorned with childlike scribbling that resembles ferocious tattoos. He normally does not speak, instead communicating through baby sounds, with the exception of one spoken line ("Mama") after the toys escape Sunnyside.
Big Baby was once one of Daisy's toys before he, Lotso, and Chuckles were lost at a rest area. After returning home, Lotso lied to Big Baby, claiming that Daisy replaced and no longer loved them. They eventually took over Sunnyside Daycare, where Big Baby became one of Lotso's henchmen. Eventually, Woody reveals to Lotso that Daisy still cared about them and gives Big Baby his pendant, sparking his memory of his former owner, whom he called "Mama". Lotso derides Big Baby for his attachment to Daisy and smashes the pendant with his mallet. Big Baby turns against Lotso and throws him in the dumpster, blows him a raspberry, and helps Woody and his friends escape Sunnyside.
In the credits, Big Baby is much happier at Sunnyside under Barbie and Ken's care, and even wears gold diapers to match their outfits at a party at the daycare.
The baby who provided the voice for Big Baby is named "Woody," according to Lee Unkrich's Twitter account, and the film's credits confirm it as being Woody Smith (listed under "additional children's voices").
Other toys at Sunnyside, with smaller roles, include:
- Twitch (voiced by John Cygan) – A green insect action figure with a bug's head, chomping mandibles, wings, and two muscular arms. He is one of the toy thugs working for Lotso. He helps to reprogram Buzz and apprehend Andy's other toys. He also operates a searchlight in the playground to look out for escaped toys. During the credits, he is seen living in a happier Sunnyside and is shown taking a turn to endure playtime with the young children in the Caterpillar Room, switching with Chunk so he can rest.
- Stretch (voiced by Whoopi Goldberg) – A toy rubber octopus with a purple body. She is the sole female member of Lotso's gang, and at first welcomes Andy's toys, but later helps capture them with her elastic tentacles. After they escape, she traps them near the edge of a garbage chute and is ready to push them into the dumpster, should they not admit defeat. She is then seen visibly cringing at Lotso's true character being revealed. Eventually, Lotso orders Stretch to push the toys into the dumpster, which Stretch is now reluctant to do. Eventually, Lotso is thrown into the dumpster by Big Baby for his lies and treachery, and Stretch immediately leaves the area. In the credits, she welcomes new toys happily and is later seen sneaking a message to Woody and his friends in Bonnie's backpack.
- Chunk (voiced by Jack Angel) – An orange rock monster toy and one of Lotso's henchmen who eventually helps imprison Andy's toys. He has low intelligence, two blue eyes, and a face that can be changed by rolling it up or down to a different facial expression with red eyes. In the credits, he is seen taking the abuse of the younger children, later taking a rest while Twitch takes his place.
- Sparks (voiced by Jan Rabson) – A robot toy at Sunnyside Daycare and one of Lotso's henchmen. Sparks has only one line, when he points out Chunk's low intelligence.
- Chatter Telephone (voiced by Teddy Newton) – A character based on the real-life toy of the same name. He can only speak when his receiver is lifted from its cradle. He lives in the Caterpillar Room, and has been at Sunnyside for years. He becomes an ally to Woody. When Woody returns to Sunnyside, Chatter Telephone says that coming back was a mistake because Lotso had since improved his security. Although his advice is to lay low, he reluctantly gives Woody instructions on how to escape Sunnyside. For this, he is later beaten and broken by Lotso's crew for helping the toys escape until he finally talks. He apologizes to Woody. In the credits, he has been repaired and is shown happily attending a toy party in the Butterfly Room.
- Bookworm (voiced by Richard Kind) – A green toy worm with a built-in flashlight who wears glasses. He keeps a library of instruction manuals in a closet at Sunnyside, and gives Lotso the instruction manual for Buzz Lightyear. He later gives the same manual to Barbie (who he thinks is Ken since she is disguised in his spacesuit outfit). In the credits, he is seen happily using his flashlight to light a disco ball during a party at Sunnyside. He only has two lines in the film.
- A monkey toy, based on the Musical Jolly Chimp toy from the 1960s, monitors the Sunnyside Daycare security cameras at night, and can alert Lotso and the gang of any toys attempting to escape by screeching into a microphone to broadcast over the intercom. Chatter Telephone tells Woody that he must get rid of the monkey before he and his friends can escape. Woody and Slinky manage to wrap the monkey up in Scotch Tape and trap it in a filing cabinet. In the credits, the monkey is seen happily playing its clash cymbals while wearing star-shaped sunglasses.
- A jack-in-the-box toy has one line in the film when he greets Andy's toys, exclaiming, "New toys!" He is voiced by the film's director, Lee Unkrich.
Bonnie is one of the children who attends Sunnyside Daycare. She became the owner of Woody, Buzz and the other toys at the end of the film. Although she has an active imagination and boisterous manner when playing with her toys, she is shy and withdrawn when she is around adults, but she quickly warms up to Andy, when he donates his toys to her. She initially finds Woody, who was trying to escape Sunnyside, takes him home, and plays with him. Woody is impressed by what he sees at her house and ultimately gets himself (and all of Andy's other toys) donated to her. Andy briefly plays with her after handing over his toys, and tells her he needs someone "very special" to take care of them for him.
In the short film Hawaiian Vacation, Bonnie goes on a vacation to Hawaii and leaves Barbie and Ken in her room. Bonnie also appears in the television specials Toy Story of Terror! and Toy Story That Time Forgot.
In Toy Story 4, Bonnie has created a toy called Forky.

Chuckles is a brokenhearted toy clown who was once owned by Daisy (along with Lotso and Big Baby), and is later owned by Bonnie. He is first seen mournfully looking out the kitchen window in Bonnie's house, where he tells Woody about Lotso's past, stating that Lotso used to be a good friend. Chuckles explains that he, Lotso, and Big Baby were accidentally left behind on a trip with Daisy's family, and when they were finally able to make it back to Daisy's house, both he and Lotso discovered that Lotso had been replaced, causing Lotso to snap. Chuckles objected when Lotso claimed all three had been replaced, but Lotso silenced him, and lied to Big Baby, saying that Daisy did not love him anymore. After the three found their way to Sunnyside and Lotso took over, running it like a prison, Chuckles was damaged and Bonnie found him and took him home. He still feels sorry for what happened to Lotso, but knows that what Lotso is doing at Sunnyside is wrong. He gives Woody a pendant (which formerly belonged to Big Baby) that says My heart belongs to Daisy, which Woody later uses to reveal Lotso's deception to Big Baby, who then rebels against him. In one of the end credits sequences, Chuckles sees a crayon-drawn picture of him, and Dolly says that "Bonnie really got your smile," making Chuckles happy.
Chuckles returns in the short film Hawaiian Vacation and he sings a Hawaiian love song while playing a ukulele when Barbie and Ken get their recreated Hawaiian adventures. He also appears in Small Fry.

Mr. Pricklepants is a stuffed hedgehog. He wears lederhosen and a Tyrolean hat, and views himself as an actor. Throughout Toy Story 3, he expresses great interest in theater arts and in the same respect, takes the art of role playing as a child's toy very seriously. Buttercup refers to him sarcastically as "Baron von Shush" due to his habit of shushing the other toys when they break character. During the credits, he plays Romeo in a play of Romeo and Juliet, with one of the alien toys playing Juliet.

Peas-in-a-Pod are three soft, plush green balls in a green zip-up case that looks like a pea pod. They have the personalities of small children, and their names are Peaty, Peatrice, and Peanelope.
The Peas-in-a-Pod reappear in the short film Hawaiian Vacation. They also appear in Small Fry.
Totoro, the title character from My Neighbor Totoro, who is also the mascot of Studio Ghibli, appears as one of Bonnie's toys. He is a big plush toy and does not speak at all during the film, nor is he spoken to by anyone by his name. He does however display his famous grin during the credit scenes, and at the end of the film, he is seen juggling the alien triplets, while Mr. and Mrs. Potato Head watch. According to the tie-in book, The Art of Toy Story 3, Totoro's appearance in the film was intended as a tribute to Hayao Miyazaki, who is a close friend of former Pixar executive John Lasseter. In addition to Lasseter's relationship to Miyazaki, another factor that contributed to Totoro's appearance was Disney's role in dubbing Studio Ghibli films for their English-language releases.
Daisy is a little girl who appears in flashbacks. She initially owned Lotso, Big Baby and Chuckles, but accidentally left them behind at a rest area along the road. In order to pacify her, Daisy's parents bought her another Lots-O'-Huggin' Bear rather than finding Lotso and the rest of her toys, which made Lotso think he had been replaced and forgotten about, and changed him into a sinister, ruthless toy.

The following characters appear in the television special Toy Story of Terror! (2013).
- Ron (voiced by Stephen Tobolowsky) – The greedy manager of the Sleep Well Motel. He has a habit of stealing toys from customers in his motel and selling them on the Internet, with the help of his pet iguana, Mr. Jones (non-speaking character, portrayed by Dee Bradley Baker), who snatches the toys in the middle of the night. When Bonnie and her mother went to Sleep Well after their car got a flat tire, Mr. Jones steals a number of Bonnie's toys, including Woody, Buzz, and Jessie. Ron then takes pictures of the toys and puts them on his bidding sale, awaiting buyers. Jessie manages to trick Mr. Jones into tearing off a curtain, revealing the toys' location and Ron's scheme to Bonnie and her mother, who then calls the police. Two police officers later arrive to question Ron, who attempts to escape by stealing their car but is forced to flee on foot after immediately crashing it into the motel sign.

Toy Story That Time Forgot (2014)Edit
The following characters appear in the television special Toy Story That Time Forgot (2014).
- Mason (voiced by R.C. Cope) is Bonnie's friend, and a post-Christmas playdate between the pair serves as the setting for the special. Mason receives a Battlesaurs toy collection for Christmas but is distracted from them by a new video game system. However, due to Trixie and Reptillus' efforts he abandons the video game and plays with his new toys. He is later shown to write his name on his toys in similar fashion to Andy and Bonnie.
- Battlesaurs – A group of mostly humanoid dinosaur toys who initially believe themselves to be real beings rather than playthings (like Buzz in the first film). This illusion is encouraged by Mason's greater interest in a new video game system that he received for Christmas, and they become hostile to Mason's other toys and to Bonnie's when they are brought over for a playdate. However, Trixie is eventually able to convince them that being played with brings its own joy, and they happily embrace their life as toys.
- Reptillus Maximus (voiced by Kevin McKidd) – The Champion of the Battlesaurs, who is fascinated by Trixie after meeting her. Initially, Reptillus is resistant to the idea of being a plaything, feeling that to submit to the will of his child would be surrender and dishonorable. However, Trixie later helps him to see that being there for Mason is honorable, and he helps her divert Mason's attention to his new toys. Near the end of Toy Story That Time Forgot, it is implied that he has a crush on Trixie.
- The Cleric (voiced by Steve Purcell) – The "spiritual" leader of the Battlesaurs. The Cleric is the first Battlesaur shown to be aware of their status as toys, but conceals it from the others so that he can rule over them and Mason's other toys. However, his plans are thwarted when Reptillus sides with Trixie; he is later shown apparently enjoying his new role as Mason's plaything.
- Ray-Gon (voiced by Jonathan Kydd) – The armorer of the Battlesaurs, his main contribution is providing Trixie and Rex with battle armor, with the latter featuring remote-control arms that the Cleric uses to manipulate Rex.
- Goliathon – A large creature used by the other Battlesaurs to imprison their enemies in its belly.
- Angel Kitty (voiced by Emma Hudak) is a cat ornament on Bonnie's Christmas tree. Bonnie briefly uses Angel Kitty during playtime, portraying her as a dinosaur. A running gag in the special is Angel Kitty giving a moral about Christmas much to other toys' (mostly Trixie) dismay and joy. Angel Kitty has a small trumpet and a halo. In her final scene, she gives a moral to Bonnie's toys and then vanishes.
