Toy Story : Watch Toy Story on Youtube on Fire, Disney’s 1995 animated extravaganza came with a gimmick: this was the first ever full-length computer animated feature. In the wrong hands this could merely have been a novelty stretched to film length. In the more than capable digits of computer wizards Pixar and director John Lasseter, however, the result is triumphant. A hilarious, original, terrifically entertaining movie refreshingly free of sentimentality and a resounding box office success both here and in the US. The plot centres simply, and to enormous effect, around the concept that toys have a life of their own. Six-year-old Andy’s favourite toy is Woody (superbly voiced by Hanks), a cowboy doll, who lords it over his plaything colleagues until the arrival of Buzz Lightyear (Allen), an arrogant “Space Ranger” action figure whose technological accoutrements and “impressive wing-span” quickly steal Andy’s affections. Apart from the growing jealousy, Woody and Buzz’s relationship is hindered by the latter’s conviction that he is a real superhero instead of a mass-produced plastic figure. It takes a string of mishaps that culminate in the pair becoming ensnared by next-door neighbour Sid a pint-sized psycho who blows up toys for kicks for them to bury their differences and escape back to their squeaky-clean extended family before an impending house move. While the younger set can’t fail to be entranced by all this, there are more than enough parent-pleasing moments on offer: a cripplingly funny Close Encounters pastiche; a finale guaranteed to cause fingernails dug into palms; and an undercurrent of innuendo-laced humour that’ll go whizzing over the tots heads.
