** To be precise, the person who kept pushing for the film to be edgy was Jeffery Katzenberg; the good guys at Pixar didn't listen to him, so he left for DreamWorks. (Good riddance, I say).

** There ''are'' some versions of the toy with separate eyes in real life. Not as commonly found, but I have seen them.

* Maybe toys can...willingly surrender their sentience and life, if they so desire? And Combat Carl was tired of being (and seeing other toys being) tortured and mutilated by Sid?

** This is one of the weirdest parts of the film because it completely contradicts the fact that Buzz truly is a toy incapable of flight, and was only added in because there was no other way for the duo to get back to Andy (and it also made a charming finale to the film). Similar to the nonsensical "Remy can make Linguini move by pulling his hair" thing and a few thousand balloons being able to lift an entire house, it's not explainable - it's just movie magic.

* This wouldn't bug me if the other sequels didn't have 'em but there isn't one Star Wars reference at all,not even to the original. after watching the second with a scene parodying the "Luke I am Your Father" scene and the third with that scene parodying The Emporer's Death,it's really hard to watch the movie again and find no reference to A New Hope.
** The storyline that Buzz thought he was following, that of having secret plans to a superweapon the evil emperor is building with the power to destroy an entire planet, is ''identical'' to R2-D2's mission in A New Hope.

** He only does that for his favorites. This is a plot point in the first movie.
*** So why do Bullseye and [[ActionGirl Jessie]] get marked immediately? Were they so great he instantly liked them more than most of his toys?
*** It was never stated that he only wrote his name on only some toys. Buzz thinks that Andy writing his name on him meant his accepting him into their culture, which implies that all the toys got Andy's name written on them. The other toys were, however, impressed that Buzz got permanent ink.
*** It's also possible that Andy tries to put his name on all his toys, but most of them are made of a material where most ink just rubs off. Buzz may have had a similar issue, but Andy was so worried about him getting lost/stolen that he convinced his mom to let him use a high-end sharpie for the job, which was why everyone was so impressed with the 'permanent ink'.
*** Or it's possible that he only puts his name on toys that he's likely to take out of the house. You wouldn't take your piggy bank to school to play with, but the new horse for your cowboy figure?

** Plus, "what if my toys come to life when I'm not around?" is a pretty common childhood fantasy. It's not impossible that two different teams of creators might come up with two separate but similar takes on the same idea independently.

** Alternatively; an accessory that small would easily disappear, get thrown out or broken. It would be the first thing to disappear. If the Woody doll itself is rare, then the gun that came with it would likely be even rarer, and likely so rare that the collector's market might simply consider the doll by itself as good as complete, since finding a gun as well would be too prohibitively expensive and time-consuming to bother with.

* Unknowingly repeating something that's been done before isn't uncommon. For example, the video game Murdered: Soul Suspect has a very similar premise to Ghost Trick: Phantom Detective (a detective is killed and has to solve his own murder). But the creators of Murdered didn't even know that Ghost Trick existed until after they were asked about it in an interview.
