Sheriff Woody has been capturing potato-head bank robbers and complaining about the snake in his boot for over 25 years. And over the last few decades, fans of the Toy Story series who grew up with the singing cowboy have noticed small and hidden details about the Disney mainstay. Here is a bit of obscure lore fans have shared about Woody that might make you want to sing as well.
From Redditor u/SnipersWSteak:
In Toy Story (1995), when the toy soldiers attack Woody, sarge says “Frag him!”
This is a term deriving from the Vietnam War where a soldier would “accidentally” kill an officer they think to be incompetent.Thanks, partner?
Final Song Reflects Woody's New Friendship
From Redditor u/Tokyono:
At the start of Toy Story (1995), Randy Newman sings “You’ve Got a Friend in Me” on his own. In the end credits, he sings it in a duet with Lyle Lovett.
At first, Woody is Andy's only favorite toy, so one singer. In the end, Woody and Buzz are both Andy's favorite toys, so two singers are used.Thanks, partner?
