Toy Story (1995)

In the landmark CGI Pixar-Disney film from director John Lasseter - the first feature film made entirely by computer-generation:

  • the bedroom setting of a 6 year-old boy named Andy Davis (voice of John Morris) where toys came to life when humans weren't there, including all the old favorites: Mr. Potato Head (voice of Don Rickles), Slinky Dog (voice of Jim Varney), Hamm the Piggy Bank (voice of John Ratzenberger), the cowardly Rex the Dinosaur (voice of Wallace Shawn), and Shepherdess Bo Peep (voice of Annie Potts)
  • Mr. Potato Head's joke with Hamm and Hockey Puck after rearranging his face: "Hey, Hamm, look, I'm Picasso...You uncultured swine. What're you lookin' at, ya hockey puck?"
  • the instant jealousy and dislike that once-favored, pull-string cowboy toy Woody (voice of Tom Hanks) had for a neophyte toy - the egotistical space-suited action figure Buzz Lightyear (voice of Tim Allen), introduced on Andy's birthday: ("The word I am searching for, I can't say because there's pre-school toys present")
  • Buzz's catchphrase as he jumped into the air: "To infinity, and beyond!"
  • non-flying Woody's continued insistence that Buzz couldn't fly while Buzz took an amazing flight around the room (without actually flying) and remarked: "Can!" -- with Woody's muttered jealous retort: "That wasn't flying! That was falling, with style!"
  • Woody's accusation that Buzz was only a toy: "You Are A Toy! You aren't the real Buzz Lightyear! You're - you're an action figure! You are a child's plaything"; Buzz responded: "You are a sad, strange little man"
  • the scene of Woody and Buzz getting trapped inside the house of the neighboring character of mean-spirited, braces-wearing toy abuser and torturer Sid Phillips (voice of Erik von Detten): ("He tortures toys -- just for FUN!"), where they encountered Sid's vicious dog Scud and "mutant" toys in his room (Buzz: "They're cannibals!") - Woody feared: "We are gonna die!"

  • Sid's come-uppance when the toys were animated and came to life to surround him and scare him into never torturing toys again: ("We toys can see everything" Woody: "So play NICE!")
  • Woody and Buzz's use of a rocket to catch up to the moving van, when Woody again commented on Buzz' flying skill when they soared into the air: Woody: "Hey, Buzz! You're flying!" Buzz: "This isn't flying, this is falling - with style!" Woody: "To Infinity and Beyond!"
