10 Times We Were All Buzz Lightyear

Something strange happened a few months ago while I was watching Toy Story (the first one). Do you remember the scene where Buzz Lightyear decides to give this flying thing one last chance to prove he’s not just a toy? He sees the window, gets all geared up and leaps for the gawds. Need me to refresh your memory? Here it is.

The disappointment in his face was funny for about 2 seconds. That’s how long it took me to realize I’ve been Buzz Lightyear before: high on life only to immediately crash into reality. It only took a few more seconds for me to realize I was Buzz in that embarrassing situation multiple times, and you probably were too.

  4. Toy Story is actually really mature if you think about it. The storytelling is really honest and of course it’s funny toys talking but they wouldn’t be making yet another one if it didn’t resonate with so many people. I shed quite a few unexpected tears at the end of Toy Story 3 when Andy drives off to college and leaves his toys behind. SO.MANY.FEELINGS. Haha.

    1. Ahhh, get out of my head! Haha. It’s like I basically grew up with Andy. I was a junior in college when Toy Story 3 came out. Too real to handle.
