Added DiffLines:

* DisownedAdaptation: For unexplained reasons, John Lasseter is not a fan of the cartoon series.
* ExiledFromContinuity: Per word of Aaron Sparrow, Pixar has barred elements from this series from being used in other Toy Story media (to the point where they're not allowed to even acknowledge the existence of the Buzz Lightyear cartoon in universe), apparently due to John Lasseter's dislike of the series.

* ActorAllusion: Creator/BradGarrett voiced Torque, a BountyHunter who rode in a spacecraft shaped like a motorcycle and after a while could clone himself at will. Those were traits also shared by The Main Man himself, SelfDemonstrating/{{Lobo}} -- who also happened to be voiced by Brad Garrett in his Franchise/{{DCAU}} appearances.

* PlayingAgainstType: [[{{Badass}} Warp]] is voiced by Creator/DiedrichBader. Yes, [[Series/TheDrewCareyShow that]] Diedrich Bader. While shows such as ''WesternAnimation/TheGrimAdventuresOfBillyAndMandy'' and ''WesternAnimation/BatmanTheBraveAndTheBold'' would go on to change this, at the time this was a pretty big case of the trope.
