-> ''You never forget kids like Emily, or Andy... but they forget you.''
-->--'''[[AffirmativeActionGirl Jessie]]'''

'''''Toy Story 2''''' (1999) is a sequel to [[WesternAnimation/ToyStory the first film]], which takes place a year or two later. Woody is accidentally damaged during one of Andy's play times, which causes him no end of concern about becoming an unwanted "broken toy." Later, Woody gets stolen at a yard sale by greedy toy collector [[VillainousGlutton Al]], so Buzz leads a group of Andy's toys to go rescue him. Meanwhile Woody finds out he's a piece of merchandise from [[ShowWithinAShow an old kids' show]] called ''Woody's Roundup'' after meeting three other tie-in dolls based on his sidekicks on the show, and that he himself is a valuable collector's item. Woody discovers that they're all going to be sold to a toy museum in Japan, and he has to decide whether to go back to Andy -- who will eventually outgrow him -- or go to the museum and [[WhoWantsToLiveForever last forever, but never be loved]].

It is notable for being Creator/{{Pixar}}'s first {{sequel}}, and for spawning a {{spinoff}} television series, ''WesternAnimation/BuzzLightyearOfStarCommand''. In 2009, it was re-released alongside ''Toy Story'' as a double feature in stereoscopic [[ThreeDMovie Disney Digital 3-D]], with the two films completely re-rendered to match the level of detail of ''WesternAnimation/ToyStory3'' (the UK had to wait until January 2010 for ''Toy Story 2'' to come out in 3D).

----
!!The film provides examples of:

* AbuseMistake: Mr. Potato Head mistakenly believes Jessie and the new gang are torturing Woody; really, [[FriendlyTickleTorture they're just tickling him]].
* AccidentalHero: Rex accidentally knocks Zurg off the elevator shaft with his tail.
* ActingUnnatural: Woody tells Buster the dog to "Act casual" while Woody hangs on his collar to rescue Wheezy unseen by humans. Buster begins to strut leisurely, and Woody hisses, "Not that casual!"
* AnAesop: The toys watch Al half-crying during an Al's Toy Barn commercial on TV after losing his Woody's Roundup dolls.
-->Hamm: I guess crime doesn't pay.
* AffirmativeActionGirl: [[GenkiGirl Jessie]]. [[TropesAreNotBad But she's still awesome]].
** Arguably, Mrs. Potato Head fits this {{trope}} since she never actually ''appeared'' in the first film, and was only mentioned briefly at the very end.
* AllAnimalsAreDogs: Bullseye was originally going to have a voice, but John Lasseter decided to make him like a giant puppy-dog.
** RC may also (sort of) qualify.
* AnAxeToGrind: When Stinky Pete sees that Woody and his pals are going to ruin his trip to Japan, he breaks out the (pick)axe...
* AnimatedActors: The "HilariousOuttakes" in the credits.
* ArmorPiercingQuestion: When Woody tells Buzz that he's staying with the Roundup Gang and going to Japan is his only chance for fame, Buzz replies with this:
-->'''Buzz:''' To do what, Woody? Watch kids from behind glass and never be loved again? Some life.
* AwardBaitSong: "When She Loved Me", by Music/SarahMcLachlan.
* BagOfHolding: Mr. Potato Head's backside was turned into one in ''Toy Story 2'''s HilariousOuttakes.
* BigBadEnsemble: Al, Zurg and [[spoiler:Stinky Pete.]]
* BigNever: Woody shouts this when ordered by Stinky Pete to get into the case bound for Japan when it's in the baggage conveyor area at the airport.
* BigNo: [[CaptainSpaceDefenderofEarth Buzz]] after Zurg [[LukeIAmYourFather tells him he's Buzz's father]], and Zurg as he falls down the elevator shaft.
** Andy's Buzz has one as well when he witnesses the other toys riding off with the wrong Buzz while he's stuck inside a box.
* BittersweetEnding: Andy may [[WesternAnimation/ToyStory3 inevitably grow out of his toys in the future]], but when it happens, at least Woody will still have Buzz Lightyear with him, for Infinity and Beyond.
* BlindingCameraFlash: The toys use flashes to stop [[spoiler:Stinky Pete]] from hurting Woody.
* BoringReturnJourney: After the climax, the next scene shows the toys back in Andy's room. Earlier, just crossing the street caused mayhem.
** Really? What about [[spoiler:[[FunnyBackgroundEvent the baggage train outside the neighbors' house]]]]? Given the episode [[OffscreenMomentOfAwesome with the pizza truck...]]
* BottomlessMagazines: Zurg fires a LOT of little Nerf balls at Buzz 2.0 in the elevator shaft.
* BowelBreakingBricks: Mr. Potato Head
* BreakingTheFourthWall: Mr. Potato Head does this in the Dutch dub.
-->[Translated from Dutch]\\
'''Buzz:''' Come on, men! Did Woody give up when Sid had me strapped to the back of a rocket?\\
'''The Other Toys:''' ''[Glumly]'' No.\\
'''Buzz:''' And did Woody give up when you threw him out of the back of that moving van?\\
'''Mr. Potato Head:''' Well, that was the other movie.
* BrickJoke: At the end when you realize that [[spoiler:the events of the film all take place in the span of a few days while Andy was at cowboy camp.]]
* CallBack: Several:
** Buzz bringing up how the other toys tossed Woody out of the moving van.
*** "[[MyGodWhatHaveIDone Oh, you had to bring]] '''[[MyGodWhatHaveIDone that]]''' [[MyGodWhatHaveIDone up...]]"
** [[CaptainSpaceDefenderofEarth Impostor Buzz]] thinking he's suffocating when [[TheLancer the real Buzz]] opens his helmet.
** Buzz climbing up to see the [[CaptainSpaceDefenderofEarth new Buzz]] with the utility belt is the same way Woody came across Buzz in the first film.
** The hold [[AffirmativeActionGirl Jessie]] puts Woody in during their fight is the same one Buzz used when he and Woody fought under Andy's Mom's car.
** The "Buzz-Buzz-Buzz Lightyear to the rescue!" phrase is uttered again at one point during the 'battle' between Utility Belt Buzz and Zurg.
** Buzz Saying [[PunctuatedForEmphasis You Are A Toy]] to Woody
* CatapultNightmare: Woody, after he wakes up from a nightmare where Andy throws him away.
* CeilingCling: Buzz hangs onto the underside of an elevator to reach [[VillainousGlutton Al's]] apartment.
* ChekhovsGun: Buzz and company thought that the green baggage they were after in the baggage conveyor area carried Woody, but all they find is a [[RedHerring a camera set]]. A couple of scenes later, [[BigDamnHeroes they catch up with Woody at the mercy of Stinky Pete]] with that camera set. Cue [[BlindedByTheLight a temporarily blinded Stinky Pete]].
* CloserThanTheyAppear: "Dinosaur overboard!"
* TheCollector: [[VillainousGlutton Al]].
* ContinuityCameo: Look twice and you'll recognize the toy restorer as the old man from ''Geri's Game''. He even has chess pieces in his toolkit.
* ContinuityNod: Stinky Pete mentions how Woody's show was cancelled once the moon landing happened and kids went crazy for space-things. Woody says he knows how that feels.
** When Buzz is attacked by the Utility Belt Buzz (who believes he is actually Buzz) in Al's Toy Barn, he wonders if he was really that deluded.
* ConveyorBeltODoom: The airport conveyor belts. It's all way more dramatic when the protagonists are toy-sized and at the mercy of massive suitcases.
* CreativeClosingCredits: The HilariousOuttakes.
* DancePartyEnding: With Wheezy singing "You Got A Friend In Me".
* DeadlyDisc: [[CaptainSpaceDefenderofEarth Buzz Lightyear]] throws discs at [[EvilOverlord Emperor Zurg]] during the {{video game}} opening sequence and the fight on top of the elevator.
* DinkyDrivers: Buzz's [[BadassCrew team of toys]] commandeer a Pizza Planet truck to pursue [[TheCollector Al]] to the airport.
* DirtyOldMan: Stinky Pete in the credits with the {{Franchise/Barbie}}s.
* DisneyVillainDeath: Subverted with [[EvilOverlord Emperor Zurg]].
* DisproportionateReward: "You have saved our lives. We are eternally grateful!"
** They say it again in ''3''.
* DoesThisRemindYouOfAnything: Watching the film today, some of Stinky Pete's dialogue to Woody [[spoiler:before his reveal as a bad guy]], and Woody's dialogue back, was very reminiscent of a counselor talking to a victim of domestic abuse. Doesn't help that Pete's [[HeyItsThatVoice being voiced by]] {{Frasier}}.
-->'''Pete:''' Was it because you're damaged? Hmm? Did this Andy ''break'' you?\\
'''Woody:''' Yeah, but -- no, no, no, no, no! It was -- it was an accident -- I mean--\\
'''Jessie:''' Sounds like he really ''loves'' you.\\
'''Woody:''' It's not like that, okay?!
** The way in which Geri (the cleaner) cleans up Woody is almost like Woody was at a high-class stylist.
* DoIReallySoundLikeThat: Buzz encounters another Buzz who believes himself to be the real Buzz.
-->'''Buzz 2:''' All Rangers are to be in hypersleep until awoken by authorized personel!\\
'''Buzz 1:''' Tell me I wasn't this deluded.
* DoubleVision: Invoked in many of the shots containing two Buzz Lightyears, which are staged as if a SplitScreen was necessary. Especially notable when they're both shouting "I'm Buzz Lightyear!" at each other; in that shot, the background is made to look as if there's a seam between them.
* TheElevatorFromIpanema: When Al is riding the elevator down to the lobby, the music playing is a "Ipanema"-style version of the main theme from ''WesternAnimation/ABugsLife''.
* EurekaMoment: How Buzz figures out who took Woody.
-->'''Mr. Potato Head:''' Let's leave Buzz to his toys.\\
'''Buzz:''' Toy... toy... toy... Hold on! ''(Types 'Al's Toy Barn' into Mr. Spell)''
* EverythingsBetterWithMonkeys: Invoked on the DVD Commentary.
* EverythingsBetterWithPenguins: Wheezy.
* EvilLaugh: Zurg, after killing Buzz in the FakeOutOpening.
* EvilOverlordList: In the opening action sequence, Zurg obviously read the List and put in a fake "Source of Zurg's Power" battery (a hologram) in his lair to trap Buzz.
* EyeScream: Even knowing Woody doesn't really feel anything, it's hard not to flinch when his eye is being cleaned.
* FakeOutOpening: The beginning with Buzz Lightyear infiltrating Zurg's planet.
* FakeStatic: Al uses this while talking to Mr. Kinoshi on his cell phone.
* FantasticRacism: With the launch of Sputnik and the Space Race in the 1960's, children became obsessed with toys related to space and all other toys fell into steep decline quickly. This isn't true in modern times, but the old cowboys-themed toy Stinky Pete hasn't quite got over this old grudge, and in his own words, "space toys" like [[TheLancer Buzz]] are upstarts.
* FatBastard: Al
* FiveManBand: The toys who go in search of Woody.
** TheLeader: Buzz
** TheLancer: Slinky
** TheSmartGuy: Mr. Potato Head
** TheBigGuy: Hamm
** TheChick: Rex
* FlatWhat: Probably a lot of viewers' reaction to "Buzz" getting blown up in the FakeOutOpening.
* FrickinLaserBeams: Zurg's Ion Blaster, particularly in the video game, shoots yellow-green "plasma". Zurg also fires green, ping-pong-like balls in his fight against Impostor Buzz at the elevator shaft in Al's apartment (probably supposed to represent [[HardLight plasma bullets]]). Buzz can usually [[PainfullySlowProjectile dodge these]] by jumping across the air, tumbling acrobatically, etc. Averted by Buzz's [[HitScan laser]]. which instantly hits the target.
* FriendlyTickleTorture: Jessie does this to Woody. Unfortunately, his friends walk in and believe her to be torturing him.
* FurryConfusion: A brief moment of this happens when Buzz uses an out-of-the-box, yet apparently non sentient or even alive CymbalBangingMonkey in his attempt to catch up with the other toys as they leave Al's Toy Barn.
* GenkiGirl: Jessie. On "[[ShowWithinAShow Woody's Roundup]]", Jessie is pure Genki. Even in the real world, though quite cynical and remorseful, she still has shades of this trope.
* GettingCrapPastTheRadar: The bit in which Woody climbs into the yard sale's 25 cent bin.
-->'''Rex:''' He's selling himself for 25 cents!
-->'''Slinky:''' Aw, Woody, you're worth more than that!
** Also "Oh Mr. Mike! I'm sorry I damaged your equipment!
** As well as in the outtakes Mrs. Potato Head stuffing items ... inside Mr. Potato Head.
** Mr. Potatohead has to remind himself that he is a married spud after he encounters the beautiful Barbie dolls.
* GilliganCut: This little exchange when the toys need to get through a ventilation grate to rescue Woody:
-->'''Rex:''' What are we gonna do, Buzz?\\
'''[[spoiler:Fake ]]Buzz:''' [[UseYourHead Use your head.]]\\
''(cut to Rex being used as a battering ram)''\\
'''Rex:''' ''But I don't wanna use my head!!!''
* GuideDangIt: Rex believes that the Buzz Lightyear video game is using extortion to get him to read a strategy guide. He unwittingly defeats Emperor Zurg in person at the elevator shaft, and once he gets home, he declares, "I don't need to play; I ''lived'' it!"
* {{Hammerspace}}: From the HilariousOuttakes mentioned below: "And a rubber ducky, and a PLASTIC STEAK, and a yo-yo!"
* HandOrObjectUnderwear: Bullseye, after his saddle falls off.
* HarmlessVillain: Al is a jerk and thief, but he otherwise [[ObliviouslyEvil poses no active or knowing threat to the toys]] (especially Woody, who care is in his best interest, if just for the money he would nab by selling him).
* HelloNurse: Barbie, complete with the jaw drop.
-->'''Mr. Potato Head:''' [[SurvivalMantra I'm a married spud,]] [[YourCheatingHeart I'm a married spud,]] [[GettingCrapPastTheRadar I'm a married spud...]]\\
'''Hamm:''' Then make room for the single fellas!
* HesAFriend: Woody to Andy's other toys when they arrive to rescue him.
* HeyItsThatVoice: Slinky Dog is Ernest P. Worrell. Rex the Dinosaur is Vizzini from ''Film/ThePrincessBride''.
* HilariousOuttakes: Continuing from the popular gag from ''WesternAnimation/ABugsLife'', ''Toy Story 2'' features bloopers as though these are real actors performing on set.
* HitScan: Buzz's laser. Unlike Zurg's [[FrickinLaserBeams Ion Blaster]], it hits its target instantly.
* {{Homage}}: When the toys are at a toy store and driving around in a toy car, Rex at some point falls off and starts running after them to catch up. Mr. Potato Head spots Rex in the side mirror with the text "Warning: Objects in mirror are closer than they appear" written. This is clearly a parody of a scene in the original Jurassic Park movie where the island visitors tries to escape a T-Rex in the same manner, mirror warning and all.
* IKnewThereWasSomethingAboutYou: The toys are trying to find out who took Woody when Buzz recognizes the thief as Al of Al's Toy Barn, who appears in his commericals as "The Chicken Man", which the other toys dislike. Hamm says "I knew there was something I didn't like about that chicken."
* InkSuitActor: Voiced by Wayne Knight, Al bears more than a passing resemblance to him.
* IOweYouMyLife: Mr. Potato Head acquires a trio of squeaky alien hangers-on in the second movie after he rescues them from falling out of a car. The Little Green Men then pester Mr. Potato Head with the line, "You have saved our lives! We are eternally grateful!" until the conclusion in which Mrs. Potato Head decides to adopt them in which the LGM respond with "Daddy!"
* IronicEcho: Buzz repeats what Woody told him in the previous movie when the latter is concerned that the Roundup Gang will go back into storage forever if he doesn't go to Japan with them.
-->'''Buzz:''' (to Woody) Woody, you're not a collector's item, you're a child's plaything. [[PunctuatedForEmphasis You. Are. A TOY!]]\\
'''Woody:''' For how much longer?
* {{Jerkass}}: Al and Stinky Pete.
* JerkWithAHeartOfGold: Mr. Potato Head risking himself to save three of the Little Green Men (who he had just met!).
* KitschyLocalCommercial: The commercial for Al's Toy Barn.
* LeftTheBackgroundMusicOn: Sort of: When Buzz is giving his RousingSpeech, an American flag appears behind him and patriotic music plays... which stays after he walks off camera. It takes a few seconds before it's revealed that it's just Al's TV playing a "[[Film/{{Poltergeist}} And thus concludes our broadcast day]]" thing.
* LicensedGame: A particularly notable aversion of TheProblemWithLicensedGames, as it blends the "[[WideOpenSandbox sandbox]]-[[PlatformGame platformer]]" gameplays of ''VideoGame/SuperMario64'' and ''SpyroTheDragon'', and then works surprisingly well.
** The Game Boy Color version, on the other hand, suffers from horrible music, poorly-drawn graphics, and broken controls.
* LordErrorProne: The second Buzz Lightyear doll.
* LukeIAmYourFather: Parodied with Zurg and Buzz (the one they meet in the Toy Store) in the second one. They later play catch with Zurg's ball-shooter.
** [[HilariousInHindsight Disney now owns the Star Wars franchise]]
* MakeoverMontage: Woody getting fixed up.
* MalevolentArchitecture: Zurg's [[ElaborateUndergroundBase underground]] [[SupervillainLair fortress]] is designed this way. Firstly, there's a [[SpikesOfDoom spiked]] [[AdvancingWallofDoom wall closing in on Buzz, really fast]], to the point where he needs to sprint and jump out the [[IndyHatRoll closing door]] at the other end of the corridor. There's a really scary BottomlessPit to deal with (but there are [[TemporaryPlatform temporarily floating platforms]] to jump on). However, the platforms suddenly fall off (with Buzz). Fortunately, he is reminded of his utility belt and suddenly presses a life-saving button to [[BottomlessPitRescueService suddenly fly]] back to the platform containing Zurg's [[PhlebotinumBattery "source of energy".]]
* MatchCut: When Buzz's rousing speech causes the Stars and Stripes to appear, he then leaves the camera, and the image turns grainy, then the camera pulls back from Al's apartment TV
* MotiveRant: "Fair?! I'll tell you what's not fair! Spending a lifetime on a dime store shelf watching every other toy be sold! Well, finally my waiting has paid off, and no hand-me-down cowboy doll is going to mess it up for me now!"
* MotorMouth: The marionette version of Woody in ''Woody's Roundup'':
-->"What's that? ''(in one breath)'' Jessie and Prospector are trapped in the old abandoned mine and Prospector just lit a stick of dynamite thinkin' it was a candle and now they're about to be blown to ''smithereens?'' "
* NeckLift: Emperor Zurg to the 2nd Buzz while they're on top of the elevator.
* [[NoodleIncident Noodle Order]]: How Buzz gets [=Utility Belt!Buzz=] to do a HeelFaceTurn:
-->'''Buzz 2:''' Could somebody please explain what's going on!?\\
'''Buzz 1:''' ''(referring to Woody)'' Its alright, Space Ranger. It's a Code 546.\\
'''Buzz 2:''' ''*gasp*'' You mean it's a--?\\
'''Buzz 1:''' Yes.\\
'''Buzz 2:''' ''*gasp*'' And he's a--?!\\
'''Buzz 1:''' Ohhh yeah.\\
'''Buzz 2:''' ''(runs and kneels at Woody's feet)'' Your majesty!
* NotTheFallThatKillsYou: Happens at two situations:
** Impostor Buzz and company fall down from a fairly far height to the elevator. The fall was about 3 seconds, and in real life, the toys, light as they are, would probably have broken to pieces.
** Zurg falls down [[DisneyVillainDeath the bottomless elevator shaft]] after being hit by Rex's tail. However, [[NotQuiteDead he is seen with Impostor Buzz long afterward.]]
* OtherMeAnnoysMe: Buzz is annoyed when a duplicate toy of himself is as deluded as he was in the first movie.
* PacManFever: Averted -- the game is quite on-par with the movie's graphics (despite running in an SNES!) and Rex doesn't even [[ButtonMashing mash buttons]]!
** Then again, since the movie came out in 1999, the choice of an SNES is still somewhat anachronistic. By then the Nintendo 64 was already in full swing. Though it could be argued that it seems to take place a short time after the original, which came out in 1995, back when the SNES was still the most popular system.
*** Also, an N64 wouldn't have been a smart choice [[LicensedGame for]] [[TimeParadox various]] [[MerchandiseDriven reasons.]]
* PairTheSpares: Buzz and Jessie at the end of the film.
* PhotoDoodleRecognition: After Woody is taken, the other toys are conducting an "investigation", with Etch drawing a sketch of the guy who took him. When Buzz asks him to draw the man in a chicken suit, everyone gasps as they recognize Big Al, the owner of Al's Toy Barn toy stores.
* PlankGag: Rex accidentally knocks Emperor Zurg off an elevator with his tail while shuddering in fear as Zurg is about to destroy the two Buzz Lightyears (one of them has a plastic belt around him).
* PrepareToDie: Zurg says this to Impostor Buzz.
* RecordScratch: Used when Pete tells Woody about the museum. [[JustifiedTrope Granted, he was running on a record player at the time, his shock causing him to stop suddenly]].
* RedAlert: Called by the Sergeant during the yard sale.
* RedemptionQuest: The presence of the non-Buzz toys on the mission to rescue Woody can be read as one of these, in light of the events of the first movie.
-->'''Buzz:''' Come on, fellas! Did Woody give up when Sid had me strapped to the back of a rocket?\\
'''The Other Toys:''' ''[Glumly]'' No.\\
'''Buzz:''' No. And did Woody give up when you threw him out of the back of that moving van?\\
'''Mr. Potato Head:''' ''[[[MyGodWhatHaveIDone Guilty]]]'' Oh, you had to bring ''that'' up.\\
'''Buzz:''' No, he did not! We've got a friend in need! We will not rest until we're safe in Andy's room ! NOW LET'S MOVE OUT!
* RedEyesTakeWarning: Emperor Zurg.
* RememberTheNewGuy: When Woody meets Wheezy the Penguin from ''Toy Story 2'', his reaction is why he's up on the shelf with him instead of being away to get his squeaker fixed. {{Justified|Trope}} in that either Andy or Molly may have gotten Wheezy either for Christmas or their birthdays between the first two movies, maybe even for the Christmas they were celebrating at the end of the first one. After all, Buster and Mrs. Potato Head were also Christmas gifts at the end of the first one...
** Oddly enough, Woody and Buzz do mention being friends with Wheezy prior to this movie -- in an "out of character" interview with the characters about the "filming" of the first movie.
* RoadTripAcrossTheStreet: Al drives his old V8 from his apartment building's parking lot to his toy store, which is literally on the other side of the street. And he grumbles about having to drive to work on a Saturday!
* RousingSpeech: Buzz to the other toys while going after Woody in ''2''. It's so rousing that the Stars and Stripes [[FlagDrop unfurls behind him]] ''out of nowhere''. (In the non-US version, the Stars and Stripes is replaced by a spinning globe and fireworks).
* RummageFail: While Potato Head reaches in to get his "angry eyes", he puts on the extra shoes.
* RumpRoast: In a "Woody's Roundup" episode, Stinky Pete tries to put out a dynamite fuse by sitting on it, resulting in a ShoutOut to ''Film/WhoFramedRogerRabbit'': "My biscuits are burning!"
* RunningGag: "You have saved our lives. We are eternally grateful."
** Potato Head [[TheChewToy constantly losing his parts]].
* SayItAgain: Jessie dares Woody to repeat the words "If the boot fits" when he suspects her of trying to sabotage his escape.
* SecondComing: Woody's welcome by Jessie, Bullseye, and Stinky Pete is almost treated as this with all the attendant Hero Worship elements attached to Woody, until he realizes that he's going to be joining them in a museum.
* ShipTease: Arguably [[RelationshipWritingFumble Woody and Jessie]] in the second movie.
** Yet she gets paired with Buzz at the end of the movie. Since, you know, Woody already has a girlfriend (Bo Peep).
* ShoutOut: When Buzz says "Farewell" to other Buzz, he gives him the [[Franchise/StarTrek Vulcan salute.]]
** When confronted with the task of crossing a busy city street, Slinky comments, [[ForrestGump "I may not be a smart dog, but I know what roadkill is...."]]
** [[Film/TheEmpireStrikesBack No, Buzz. I]] ''[[LukeIAmYourFather am]]'' [[StockShoutOuts your father.]]
** Mr. Potato Head seeing [[CloserThanTheyAppear Rex in the rear-view mirror]] is one to ''Film/JurassicPark''.
** In the FakeActionPrologue, the sounds the platforms make when Buzz jumps on them combine to form ''Also Sprach Zarathustra'', referencing ''TwoThousandOneASpaceOdyssey''.
** To Pixar's own ''ABugsLife''; toys of the characters can be seen hanging from a shelf at Al's Toy Barn, and Heimlich can be just barely seen being knocked off a branch when Buzz is karate-chopping his way through the bushes. The latter shout-out is expanded on in the bloopers. Also, an [[TheElevatorFromIpanema Elevator Music]] version of the main theme is heard when the toys try to reach Woody in the elevator.
** [[Film/WhoFramedRogerRabbit My biscuits are burning!]]
** [[Film/{{Airplane}} The white zone is for immediate loading and unloading...]]
* ShowWithinAShow (Type 3): ''Woody's Roundup''
* SomethingElseAlsoRises: Buzz's wings after he sees Jessie opening the door with a full acrobatic routine.
** Parodied in the outtakes: Woody scribbled "This Space for Rent" on Buzz's wings at some point before the scene.
* SpinOff: BuzzLightyearOfStarCommand.
* SpotTheImposter: When the toys realize they have two Buzz Lightyears. They're starting to cotton on when one of the Buzzes starts going on about "Star Command" and has a freak-out when his helmet is opened, but the deal is finally cinched when only one Buzz has Andy written on his foot.
* StepfordSmiler: The Barbies in ''Toy Story 2''.
** Tour Guide Barbie [[LampshadeHanging lampshades]] this at the end of the outtakes seen during the end credits when, after bidding everyone goodbye, she finally stops smiling and comments on it exaggeratedly:
-->'''Barbie:''' Oh, my gosh, my cheeks are ''killing'' me! I can't even keep ''smiling'' like this anymore! I am ''exhausted''!
* TakeAThirdOption: In Andy's play scenario, he has Hamm hold Bo Peep hostage and tells Woody he has a choice of either feeding Bo to a shark or death by monkeys. Woody then chooses Buzz Lightyear, who crashes into Hamm, giving Woody enough time to rescue Bo Peep.
* ThatRemindsMeOfASong: Happens at the end when Wheezy gets a new squeaker and feels like singing a song, to which he sings a big-band rendition of "You've Got a Friend in Me", with his singing voice by Robert Goulet. Though it does pause briefly for a heartwarming moment between Woody and Buzz.
** The part when Wheezy gets ready to sing was also part of the blooper reel, where he hilariously fails at catching the microphone.
* TheyCallMeMisterTibbs: Mr. Potato Head saying, "Prepare to meet '''Mr. Angry Eyes'''!" [[RummageFail Too bad he got his spare feet instead...]]
* TimmyInAWell: In a ''Woody's Roundup" episode, Jessie sends some animals to get Sheriff Woody. Woody easily interprets their chatter into a complex message.
* TwinThreesomeFantasy: ParentalBonus in the credits sequence.
* TwoWordsObviousTrope: "Two words. ''Sput-nik''."
* UnusuallyUninterestingSight: Did none of the drivers think that moving traffic cones were a little odd?
** [[RuleOfFunny Meh]].
* UpToEleven: Zurg's Ion-Blaster.
* UseYourHead: Rex, to enter Al's apartment.
-->'''Rex:''' But I don't wanna use my head!
* UtilityBelt: I bet you could sure use one of those.
* VanityLicensePlate: Al's license plate gives Buzz a clue to Woody's location.
* AVillainNamedZrg: The {{Troperiffic}} evil emperor Zurg.
* WeWillMeetAgain: Emperor Zurg says this to Buzz Lightyear.
* WhoWantsToLiveForever: Stinky Pete certainly does.
* WoobieDestroyerOfWorlds: After hearing [[MoodSwinger Stinky Pete]] remind the others about toys as unpopular as them sitting on a store shelf for years, watching every other toy get sold, himself an example - you can't help but feel for him. And while he attempts some rather bad things near the end, his desire to find some form of love as a museum piece instead of going back to a store shelf or storage is understandable.
** [[MoodSwinger Stinky Pete]] had good reasons to do what he did. Sure, he almost ripped [[TheHero Woody]] into ribbons, but even then he wouldn't have killed him, since his goals depend on [[TheHero Woody's]] survival.
-->'''Pete:''' Your choice, Woody: you can go to Japan together or in pieces. If he fixed you once, he can fix you again.
* YouAnsweredYourOwnQuestion: Rex: "How do you spell ''FBI''?"
