Toy Story movies find a way to keep causing waves of nostalgia while still improving upon themselves and Toy Story behind the scenes trivia is always interesting. Who would've thought Toy Story 2 had any hope of being as good as the first - much less a Toy Story 3 feeling fresh and original all those years later. The third film alone made more than a billion dollars and is one of the highest grossing films of all time (the first two are no slackers either). But the films have such a rich history and are so vital to the current state of filmmaking there's still so much to be learned about - and from - them.

Or that Pixar accidentally deleted These facts are the tip of the iceberg.So to honor the films that started not only one of the best and most consistent film studios in the business (Pixar), we've dug up the very best Toy Story trivia out there! Dive through these facts and learn something new about Woody, Buzz, Rex, Mr. Potato Head, Slinky Dog, and these other friends you've had for decades.
