Classic Character Descriptions
Woody
Woody is a cowboy sheriff with a pull-string that, when pulled, proclaims Woody's signature catchphrases from the 1950s TV show "Woody's Roundup." He's always been Andy's favorite toy. Even though his owner is now grown, the loyal sheriff Woody maintains a steadfast belief that Andy still cares about his toys. As the toys venture into their unknown future, Woody remains the voice of reason. As their dependable leader, he ensures that no toy gets left behind.

Buzz Lightyear
Buzz Lightyear is a heroic space ranger action figure, complete with laser beam, karate-chop action and pop-out wings. Buzz is a boy's dream toy who becomes a quick favorite of young Andy, and the closest of buddies with Woody. While Buzz's sole mission used to be defeating the evil Emperor Zurg, what he now cares about most is keeping his toy family together. Buzz's new mission is sidetracked along the way, however, when his journey brings out surprising aspects of his personality even he didn't know existed.

Jessie
Jessie is an exuberant, rough-and-tumble cowgirl doll who's always up for a daring adventure to save critters in need. With Andy's imminent departure hanging over the toys, Jessie is afraid of being abandoned by her owner once again. She takes charge, insisting that the toys take control of their own destinies. But is it a decision they'll later regret?

Hamm
Hamm is a pink piggybank with a penchant for one-liners. He's still a know-it-all, or at least that's what he'd like everyone to believe.

Mr. Potato Head
Mr. Potato Head is a wise-cracking, hot-headed spud, complete with angry eyes. He's the eternal pessimist with a tough plastic exterior, but his total devotion to his little "sweet potato," Mrs. Potato Head, reveals a softer side.

Mrs. Potato Head
Mrs. Potato Head is Mr. Potato Head's biggest fan. She adores her brave spud and is always willing to lend him a hand. Or an eye. While Mr. Potato Head's "sweet potato" lives up to her pet name, she also shares her husband's hair-trigger temper.

Rex
Rex may look like the most fearsome dinosaur in the toy box, but this Tyrannosaurus is one of the most lovable toys of the bunch. Despite his endless worrying and insecurities about his small roar, Rex always comes through for his pals.

Slinky
A dog is a man's best friend, and the saying holds true for the plastic variety as well. Slinky maintains a nearly unflagging faith in Woody, and the practical pup will go to great lengths to help his friend.

Bullseye
Bullseye is Woody's trusty toy steed from the "Woody's Roundup" gang. Bullseye can ride like the wind and leap across giant canyons in a single bound, especially when Woody is in the saddle.

Aliens
Often heard exclaiming "ooohhh!" in unison, the three green, multi-eyed squeak-toy Aliens now revere their adoptive parents the Potato Heads instead of the Claw because, of course, Mr. Potato Head saved their lives and they are eternally grateful.

Barbie
After surviving years of yard sales and spring cleanings, Barbie's glory days come to an abrupt end when Andy's sister Molly dumps her in a daycare donation box. Barbie's despair is short-lived, however. Her perky demeanor returns as soon as she spots Ken and his dream house at Sunnyside Daycare. Despite being smitten at first sight, she's not just another doll in love: assertive Barbie teaches Ken a thing or two about real friendship.

Andy
Andy, Buzz and Woody's kind, imaginative young owner, is now nearly 18-years-old and just days away from heading to college. His bedroom walls, once covered with Buzz Lightyear posters, are now plastered with images of sports cars, rock bands and skateboarders. Although Andy no longer brings his old toys out from the chest for playtime, he hasn't been able to bring himself to get rid of them. With his imminent departure looming, and prodding from his mom, the time has come for him to decide the fate of his favorite toys.
