#HANX for the Memories #026 – Toy Story (1995)
You’ve got a friend in us! This week, on #HANX for the Memories, we’re headed all the way back to talk about the first appearance of Sheriff Woody in Toy Story. Joining us to try to frame this movie within the proper contexts (in Hanks’s career, in this franchise, and in the history of animation) is Zack DeZon. In this episode, we discuss the heady philosophical questions that the Toy Story movies pose, admire this movie for appealing to both children and parents alike, and debate the proper way to describe this movie’s computer animation. We also look ahead to the rest of the movies in the series, think about the actors almost cast as Woody and Buzz, and wonder whether or not Woody was secretly the villain in Toy Story all along. Plus, of course, a connection to the Fast and the Furious.
