Conception and creation[sunting | sunting sumber]
Woody was originally intended to be a Howdy Doody-like ventriloquist's dummy and was named after Western actor Woody Strode. John Lasseter always wanted Tom Hanks to play the character of Woody. Lasseter claimed Hanks "... has the ability to take emotions and make them appealing. Even if the character, like the one in A League of Their Own, is down-and-out and despicable." Early test footage, using Hanks' voice from Turner and Hooch, convinced Hanks to sign on to the film. Toy Story was Hanks' first animated film role.
Story[sunting | sunting sumber]
Toy Story[sunting | sunting sumber]
In the beginning of Toy Story, Woody coordinates a reconnaissance mission around his owner Andy's birthday party in the days before Andy's family move to their new house in order to find out what Andy's new toys are and to make sure that none of them are good enough to replace him as Andy's favorite toy. To his dismay, Andy receives a new action figure in the form of space ranger Buzz Lightyear, whose impressive features soon see Buzz replacing Woody as Andy's favorite toy. As the former de facto leader of Andy's toys, Woody is disappointed and resentful at his replacement. Out of jealousy, Woody tricks Buzz into rescuing a toy trapped behind Andy's desk and uses RC the remote controlled car to push him behind the desk. Unfortunately, the plan backfires and Buzz is knocked out of the window. After RC rats him out about Buzz all the toys turn on him, but before he is punished, Woody is taken with Andy to the space-themed Pizza Planet restaurant. While Andy's mother refuels the car at a gas station, Woody ponders how he can return to Andy's room alone. Suddenly, he is confronted by Buzz and the two end up fighting and accidentally land outside the car, which drives off and leaves the two stranded. Woody spots a truck bound for Pizza Planet and plans to rendezvous with Andy there. Realizing that he will face the wrath of the other toys if he returns alone, Woody convinces Buzz that the truck is a spaceship. At Pizza Planet, Buzz stuffs himself into a rocket-shaped claw game machine, forcing Woody to clamber into the machine to try and rescue him. Woody and Buzz are then captured by Andy's next-door neighbor, the toy-destroying Sid Phillips. As Woody desperately attempts to escape from Sid's house before Andy's family's moving day, Buzz realizes that he is in fact a toy and becomes a depressed burden to Woody. In the film's turning point, Woody admits that Buzz is a "cool toy", but despairs that he himself stands no chance of being Andy's favorite. When Buzz is taken away by Sid to be destroyed with a firework rocket, Woody teams up with Sid's mutant toys and stages a rescue of Buzz, terrifying Sid into running away in fear of his own toys. Woody and Buzz climb into the moving van, attracting the attention of Sid's dog Scud. When Buzz gives up himself to save Woody by tackling the dog, Woody attempts to rescue Buzz with RC. However, he is then thrown from the van by the other toys, who mistakenly thought that Woody was trying to get rid of RC like they thought he did with Buzz. Lenny the binoculars spot Woody and Buzz on RC and the other toys then come to their rescue by using Slinky Dog to grab onto RC. However, RC's batteries end up dying and Slinky, stretched to his limit is unable to hold on. Woody realizes that he can ignite Buzz's rocket and manages to toss RC into the moving truck just as he and Buzz go soaring into the air. They fly /"Falling with style" in the air until they land safely inside Andy's car. At the end of the film, Woody and Buzz stage another reconnaissance mission to prepare for new toy arrivals on Christmas morning. As Woody wonders what gift may be worse than Buzz, Andy receives a puppy, much to his and Buzz's dread.
Toy Story 2[sunting | sunting sumber]
In Toy Story 2, Andy accidentally tears Woody's arm while playing with him before leaving for cowboy camp (an annual trip he makes with Woody), leaving Woody on the shelf. Woody, being unable to move his arm, begins to have recurring nightmares of becoming a disused toy, but wakes to find that Wheezy, a penguin toy whose squeaker is broken, is being taken by Andy's mother to be sold at a yard sale. Woody rescues Wheezy with the help of Andy's dog Buster, but he is accidentally left behind at the yard sale and subsequently stolen by Al McWhiggin, the owner of Al's Toy Barn. Woody is brought to Al's apartment, where he discovers that he is a toy created from Woody's Roundup TV show in the 1950s. By acquiring him, Al now has a complete collection of the show's merchandise, which he plans to sell to a toy museum in Tokyo, Japan. Woody meets the toy versions of the show's co-stars: his sidekick Jessie, his horse Bullseye, and an old prospector named Stinky Pete formerly known as 'The Prospector' (who is still apparently in mint condition in his original box). The three are excited to be going to Japan, but knowing that he is still Andy's toy, Woody has doubts and tries to escape the apartment without success. Later, Woody's arm is repaired and he is given a fresh paint job, which he appreciates. He slowly warms up to the idea of going to Japan, particularly after learning that Jessie was once the favorite toy of a little girl named Emily who gave her away after growing up and he is convinced by Stinky Pete that, if he returns to Andy, he will eventually be thrown away when he grows up, whereas if he goes to Japan, he will be remembered and treasured forever. He is later confronted by Buzz and the other toys, who try to take him home. While Woody initially turns his back on them, he soon comes to his senses and invites the other toys from Woody's Roundup to come along, but is denied freedom by Stinky Pete, who is determined to go to Japan since he was never sold as a toy. Woody and the rest of the collection are packed up for shipping overseas and taken to the Tri-County Airport. Woody gets into a spat with the Prospector in the baggage handling area, during which the old rip in his arm is reopened (but this time, his arm still can move, because it's just a little rip). Woody is eventually able to defeat the Prospector with help from the other toys by tossing him into a girl's backpack (sentencing him to an unfortunate fate of being doodled on by its owner). While Bullseye is rescued, Jessie is loaded into the plane's cargo hold. Assisted by Buzz and Bullseye, Woody is able to slip on board and extract her from the cargo hold just before the plane takes off. Woody and the others happily return home, where his arm is once again repaired (Andy's fix is somewhat lopsided, but Woody takes this as a badge of pride). Woody and Buzz now accept the fact that Andy will eventually grow up, but even after he does, they will still be there for each other.
Toy Story 3[sunting | sunting sumber]
In Toy Story 3, Andy, now seventeen years old, is due to go to college. After one last attempt to be played with by Andy, Woody gives up the chance of playtime, but assures the other toys that their job in life is to be there for Andy, and if it's in the attic, then so be it. When Woody and the other remaining toys remember their past friends, he is sadly reminded of Bo Peep who was given away years ago. However, Andy plans to only take Woody to college, with the other toys going into the attic, but they are almost thrown away after being mistaken for trash by Andy's mother. Woody then tries to stop them from being donated to Sunnyside Daycare by trying to explain what happened, but they refused to listen and Woody goes along by accident. After being welcomed by Lots-O'-Huggin' Bear and the daycare toys, Woody reluctantly scolds Andy's other toys for turning their backs on their owner. He eventually leaves without them when Buzz also admits he wishes to stay. Woody is able to get out of Sunnyside, but loses his hat and is taken home by a girl named Bonnie.
At Bonnie's house, he is told of the truth about Sunnyside - it's run like a prison by Lotso, who became bitter from his replacement by his owner years before. Woody returns to Sunnyside, and with the help of the Chatter Telephone, formulates a plan to escape the Daycare through a garbage chute. Woody and the toys also accidentally reset Buzz to a Spanish mode before escaping Sunnyside. However, Lotso and his minions confront them, and Woody tells Big Baby that he was never replaced by his owner and that he understands how Lotso felt about being replaced. Then Lotso snaps, reveals his true colors and angrily denigrates the toy and all his servants as worthless, Big Baby throws Lotso into the dumpster. Woody crosses the now available bridge, but Lotso pulls him in as well as an act of revenge for foiling his plans. When the toys try to rescue Woody, all are thrown into a garbage truck, and a television lands on Buzz and resets him from Spanish to English. When the toys arrive at the dump, the aliens are pushed away by a tractor and the rest of Andy's toys and Lotso face being killed by a shredder. They escape the threat of the shredder by grabbing pieces of metal which are picked up by a magnetic conveyor belt in the ceiling and sailed over the shredder. During this time, Woody and Buzz save Lotso from underneath a golf club bag by moving it off of him and grabbing the last club in the bag to get them sucked-up to the conveyor belt. Afterwords they find that they are heading towards an incinerator which can be turned off by pressing a button. Lotso tries to reach the button and Woody and Buzz push him up to it, however, Lotso turns and abandons Andy's toys, still believing that the fate of all toys is abandonment by their owners.
The toys fall to the edge of the incinerator; they cannot escape being pulled into the flames, and hold hands, accepting oblivion as a family. However, they are saved by the three aliens with a massive claw. Afterwards, Hamm and Slinky want to get back at Lotso for almost letting them die, but Woody opposes this, convincing them he's not worth it and knowing that Lotso just needs to be loved again, which became oddly fulfilled when a garbageman, who had a Lots-O-Huggin' Bear as a kid, finds Lotso and straps him into his truck with a few other toys, much to Lotso's dismay. Woody and the toys ride Sid's garbage truck back home, and the other toys prepare for the attic. Back inside Andy's house, the toys wash up quickly and all the toys except Woody climb inside a box that is headed for the attic. Woody climbs into a box of the last of Andy's possessions he is about to take to college. As he looks on, he watches through a hole in the box as Andy's mother makes her emotional farewell to Andy. Woody, who throughout the movie, struggled to accept that his role in Andy's life as his toy was coming to an end, finally realizes that he must let Andy go as well and move on with his own existence as a toy. He jumps out of the box when Andy turns around to say goodbye to Buster and Molly and writes a note with Bonnie's address on the box meant for the attic. Andy takes the toys there and gives the last of his toys to Bonnie. Bonnie recognizes Woody, and Andy gives him to her as well, although he is initially reluctant to let Woody go. Woody and the toys watch Andy drive away to college, and Woody says quietly "So long, partner." As seen in the credits, Woody and his toy companions then embrace their new life with Bonnie.
Other appearances[sunting | sunting sumber]
Woody also made a cameo in the movie A Bug's Life as a crew member in one of the outtakes. He appeared in Buzz Lightyear of Star Command: The Adventure Begins, where he only appeared at the beginning and was voiced by Jim Hanks. He appeared in the intro show of Buzz Lightyear of Star Command as a cameo.
Characteristics[sunting | sunting sumber]
"Woody is a passionate guy who throws himself into every action. As soon as he has an instinctive thought like "I have to help them," or "I have to run away," he does it with 100-percent commitment. You gotta love that about anybody. What's great is that I get credit for the way the character and the humor come off. I have kids that are now in college come up to me and say, "when you told that neighbor kid to play nice, that really meant a lot to me."
Woody is an old-fashioned pull-string cowboy doll. The voice-box that is activated by the pull-string says many simple phrases such as "Reach for the sky!", "You're my favorite deputy!" and "There's a snake in my boot!" As mentioned in Toy Story 2, his construction includes an "original hand-painted face, natural dyed-blanket stitched vest, and hand-stitched poly-vinyl hat." Woody wears an empty gun holster at his belt. He is Andy's favorite toy since kindergarten, with a special spot on the bed, and is the leader of the toys in Andy's room. In Toy Story 2 it is revealed that he is based on the main character from a popular 1950s TV show, Woody's Roundup. When Al is bargaining with Andy's mom in an attempt to take Woody, Andy's mom declines Al's bargain, stating that Woody is "an old family toy." Stinky Pete also directly refers to him as a hand-me-down toy later in the movie, and when Woody finds a record player in Al's apartment room, he states "I haven't seen one of these in ages!", again supporting that he has been around longer than Andy. (In fact, when introducing the 2009 set of Toy Story collectibles, John Lasseter said "We always imagined he was a hand-me-down to Andy from his father.") He is voiced by Tom Hanks in the films and by his brother Jim Hanks on other occasions.
In the three films, Woody makes two strong friendships with Buzz and Jessie. He and Buzz are very close and care deeply about each other and will do anything for each other. Even though he and Jessie argue with each other sometimes, they are still very close friends.
Although he has been deemed the boss in Andy's room, Woody is somewhat of a flawed character as seen in all three movies, as he has random bouts of jealousy, anger, frustration, and feelings of inadequacy regarding his role many times. He even is seen harming (almost destroying) Buzz in their first encounter to stay in Andy's good graces. These emotions often arise out of his frustration of being an immortal toy adjusting to his human owner aging.
It was revealed in August 2009 by Lee Unkrich that Woody's official last name is "Pride". Unkrich stated in his Twitter blog that “Woody’s actual full name is ‘Woody Pride’ and has been since the earliest days of developing the original Toy Story.”
Pullstring quotes[sunting | sunting sumber]
The following is a list of the 7 quotes uttered when Woody's pullstring is pulled.
- "You're my favorite deputy."
- "Reach for the sky."
- "There's a snake in my boot."
- "Somebody's poisoned the waterhole!"
- "This town ain't big enough for the two of us."
- "Yee-ha! Giddy up, partner! We've got to get this wagon train a-movin."
- "I'd like to join your posse boys, but first I'm going to sing a little song."
Lego sets[sunting | sunting sumber]
In late 2009, Lego released a Woody's Roundup! playset as one of the first released playsets, consisting of minifigures Woody, Bullseye, Jessie and Stinky Pete, and buildings Sheriff, Jail and a gold mine. The set has a trap in between Jail and Sheriff that flings the minifigures, a safe, Lego money, a wall that falls off the Jail and Lego pieces that fall through the top of the gold mine, specifically to land on Stinky Pete's head.
In early 2010, Lego released Woody and Buzz to the Rescue, a playset including a pull-back RC the car, Woody minifigure, and Buzz minifigure with a removable rocket attached to his back.
In late April 2010, Lego released a line of Toy Story 3. Toy Story 3 included: Trash Compactor Escape, Western Train Chase, Trash Truck Escape and Lotso's Dump Truck.
