Both Woody and Buzz are completely unaware of the franchises that they belong to until they see direct proof of it. (a TV ad, and the Woody's Roundup merchandise) It could be reasonable to conclude from here that while they're 'pre-programmed' with the personalities of the character, but not necessarily knowledge of their fellow cast members or expanded universe- for all they know, their entire world consists of the packaging blurb. Perhaps a kind of failsafe in case they never meet another of their kind, as what probably happened to Woody- considering ''Woody's Roundup'' ended up DeaderThanDisco after wild popularity, it's not surprising that he never got to see it.

* One can imagine an [[{{Transformers}} Optimus Prime]] or plush [[SuperMarioBros Mario]] seeing their own depictions by accident, like Buzz did. Presumably, there's a system in place for preventing HeroicBSOD. It didn't happen for Buzz since Andy didn't own any licensed toys (at least, licensed to something that was currently airing).

* Furthermore, Buzz (the toy) is seen running on Buy-N-Large batteries, showing that the company exists in both Wall-E and Toy Story. In Wall-E, Buy-N-Large fronts the exodus from Earth into space. Perhaps Buzz (the person) was the frontiersman of this effort.

* Seems unlikely, even if it was a very well-made knockoff there probably would be one or two telltale signs that it wasn't a real Woody. Since Al in the second movie was an avid ''Woody's Roundup'' fan and toy collector who knew a lot about the Woody toy in question, he probably would have been able to spot any signs of inauthenticity. Also if Woody was home-made, how did he get his pullstring mechanism with his catchphrases? Early talking toys like Woody (real life examples would include "Chatty Cathy" and the "See n' Say") used a system that was essentially a spring-loaded coil that spun a small phonograph record against a needle which played his phrases. Not an easy device to re-create by yourself without the proper tooling and knowledge.

* The rest of Buzz's friends from the BuzzLightyearOfStarCommand series. Mira would go "OK, if I was just a toy, could I do this?" and run headfirst into a wall, wondering why her phasing wasn't working. Buzz would help her come to grip with reality. Booster would probably make friends with Rex pretty easily. XR would be adopted by the Potato Heads who think he's their long lost son.

He sued the airline for losing his luggage, because obviously no one will suspect the toys just up and ran off. The airline might have gotten Sid to testify on their behalf, but it just made them look worse, having the crazy kid ramble about the toys being alive making them look like jackasses. Al would end up being awarded millions of dollars in the suit.

Yes, I have no proof and it's out-there as hell, but come on, the irony would be AMAZING.

* Why not? They are turning ''WesternAnimation/{{Cars}}'' [[RecycledINSPACE into]] Film/JamesBond! ...Or they '[[XMeetsY added]]' '[[Film/AustinPowers James Bond]]'...

* StarWars: No Force Powers beyond what they can do in combat. Flipping through the air and landing with style, yes. Moving things with their mind, no. The Jedi characters might live by their code anyway and may try the Jedi mind trick, with varying degrees of success. They may find themselves quoting the films where appropriate.
