The toys are mistakenly delivered to a day-care center instead of the attic right before Andy leaves for college, and it's up to Woody to convince the other toys that they weren't abandoned and to return home.
In order to power the city, monsters have to scare children so that they scream. However, the children are toxic to the monsters, and after a child gets through, 2 monsters realize things may not be what they think.
While Andy is away at summer camp Woody has been toynapped by Al McWiggin, a greedy collector and proprietor of "Al's Toy Barn"! In this all-out rescue mission, Buzz and his friends Mr. Potato Head, Slinky Dog, Rex and Hamm springs into action to rescue Woody from winding up as a museum piece. They must find a way to save him before he gets sold in Japan forever and they'll never see him again!Written by

The cover of Life Magazine has a headline which reads "Sputnik - First Photos Revealed" and is dated 12 January 1957. Sputnik wasn't launched until 4 October 1957. This is simply a bit of fun poked at the movie industry in general where photos from the set are revealed a long time before the movie actually hits theaters and not a reference to the launch date of the Sputnik. The date itself is a reference to director John Lasseter's birthday. See more »

In the original 1999 theatrical version, the end credits played over a black background, while the songs "Woody's Roundup" and "You've Got a Friend In Me" played out in full. This version was used for the original 2000 DVD release, and the 2005 release.
Approximately one month after the original theatrical release, the original version of the end credits were replaced with the "outtakes" version. This version of the end credits was used for the 2010/2011/2015 Blu-ray/DVD/Blu-ray 3D/Digital HD release. A reformatted version, with the outtakes at the top of the screen instead of on the side, had been used for the original 2000 VHS and DVD release. The outtakes itself had also been included as a special feature on the 2000 DVD release, the 2005 release and the 2010/2011/2015 Blu-ray/DVD/Blu-ray 3D/Digital HD release.
For the later TV airings, due to the split-screen credits, they show the outtakes and credits separately.
The 2019 UHD release uses the "outtakes" version of the credits, but the clip of Prospector chatting with the Barbies in his box has been removed. It was also cut from the versions available digitally. See more »
I just saw Toy Story 2 an hour ago and I must say that, despite all the great reviews, I was still surprised about the quality....It started absolutely marvellous; one of the greatest and humorous opening sequences ever. The plot is really smart, the animation is brilliant and the humor...Oh man! The last 50 minutes must be the most fun 50 minutes I had in years and believe me, I'm NOT exaggerating. It seems impossible to imagine the fun the writers must have had, because this is a true film-fest whether you do like Disney-esque films or don't.
Having this fast-paced storyline, John Lasseter & Co. exploited it to a maximum. Cameo's from Pixar-characters (Geri's the coolest), unexpected and obliged references to other big films (really love the Jurrasic Park one), great new characters (Wheezy!!), and more jokes and gags rammed in an animated feature than you'll ever see and of course the out takes.
The action-department is also greatly represented in some astonishing sequences with great, original shots and angles. The music is moody and Randy Newman is at his best with the really non-disturbing, appropriate song about Jessie, which is definitely the message of this film.
O.K., I know I'm raving, but I really meant it when I chose the ten and clicked the "Vote" button. This film is great and I recommend it to every film-lover.
A few downsides (this hardly affects the overall film) are I think, first of all the lack of originality, which is excusable and acceptable for a sequel. Second, the still somewhat jerky animation of the humans (I know they said it was supposed to be, but I disagree that). And third: the ratio, 1:1,85 (I thought it was the theater, but Pixar is forgiven, seen the quality of the film.) These are minors things and my decision is final, Toy Story 2 is certainly included in my top 20.
O.K., now you may stand up and ring a friend to go and see it, come on!!
