* SerendipityWritesThePlot: In the early 1990s, everything CG was still kinda plastic... so Pixar did a film starring plastic characters.

* BreakthroughHit: ''Toy Story'' put Creator/{{Pixar}} on the map as one of the industry's top animation teams. It was also an example for CGI animation as a whole, as it provided proof that the format could be widely-accessible (and has since led to CGI becoming the dominant form of animation).

** Then Disney exec Jeffrey Katzenberg wanted the first film to be "edgy", which resulted in Woody being a {{jerkass}} and a heavy reliance on insult humour. This backfired immensely; when a story reel was shown to Roy Disney, on what has been dubbed "Black Friday" by the production team, he called it "one of the worst things I've ever seen." The Pixar boys were left alone to write the movie they wanted to write, and the rest is history. Not to mention that the film's production was almost canceled as a result of Katzenberg getting ''[[BeCarefulWhatYouWishFor exactly what he asked for]]'' [[BeCarefulWhatYouWishFor and not liking it.]] Some people say that Pixar intentionally made the reel bad in hopes of changing the Disney execs minds. It worked almost ''too'' well; the Disney execs nearly killed the movie outright, and it took a drastically revised script to convince them to give it a second chance (Katzenberg didn't stick around for the end product; this is the only Pixar film he's been involved with).

* OldShame: Not the film itself by any means, but the creators have acknowledged just how poorly the computer graphics have aged, going as far as to call it their "ugliest film."" Elsewhere, the infamous "Black Friday" reel that Lasseter screened for Katzenberg of course became an instant OldShame to John.

* ThrowItIn: In the gag where Buzz gasps for air after Woody accidentally opens his helmet, Woody was supposed to look around, concerned. However, at a screening of the layout version, the expressionless stand-in model of Woody made him look more made John Lasseter burst out laughing, and the gag was changed to Woody impatiently waiting for Buzz to finish his spiel.
