Sid Grows Up to be the Garbage Man in Toy Story 3

by Emily Keen

We are all aware of Sid from Toy Story. He the little child, who tormented his toys by subjecting them to eccentric experiments. Probably an adolescent while he pulled up the livid act of setting the toys on fire and then pull them apart and then merging them with other toy parts. The kid was insane. The giant baby head on the metal legs is an unforgettable memory. In fact, just go out on the limb and say, he was a terror.

The cynics will probably dismiss his deranged behavior quoting his lunatic side did not cause any harm to live beings. But Hey! Guess what? The toys in the movie have feelings and you cannot stop the audience from siding them over the maniac who did nothing but try to deform them in the most heinous way possible. He learned his lesson at the end of course when the toys decided they won’t take it anymore.

The last we see him is when Woody warns him to “play nice” and he runs while screaming on top of his lungs.

Enter Garbage man, from Toy Story 3!

If we believe the rumors being spewed by ardent fans, Sid probably grew into Garbage man in the third installment of the franchise. And the main indication of the fact is the Skull T-shirt that he wears. Its Pixar- every little detail means something.

Most people would say Sid becoming a garbage man as an adult was karma returning to him in the most practical way. He treated toys like trash. He might as well learn to respect the trash. And as a result, he ended up making a living out of it.

Reddit user Londongarbageman gave an elaborate explanation to back the theory. Here it is:

“In Toy Story 1 Sid is confronted with the horrifying revelation that his toys are alive. 15 years later in Toy Story 3 we see that Sid has become the local Garbageman. Now being a garbageman has one of the biggest perks that you may not have realized. We find things. Lots of things,”.

The user who claims to be a garbage man himself spoke about the toys he retrieved from the trash including Barbies, Legos and Nerf guns. He went on to suggest that Sid accepting the job of a garbage man was his way of redeeming himself in response to the suffering he put the poor toys through.

“Now, let’s imagine you’re a guy who just learned that inanimate objects are alive. What job would you get? Sid isn’t f–ked up and working a crappy job. He’s trying to save them. He is trying to save the toys. He picked one kind of job where you can rescue those things. And Sid is uniquely equipped to fix those toys that he finds that are broken. He’s pretty damn creative.”- he added!

Sid’s job was his wrongdoings coming back to him. He chose a profession that would mean doing exactly the opposite of what he did as a child. Save the toys! He is not even happy doing that job.

Although if you think about it, fate isn’t exactly a curse. It may not be a glamorous job, but at least he is doing something good for the toys that are disposed of. The predator is now the benefactor! How poetic is that! This seems like a more fulfilling explanation for Sid’s story.

Wheezy is the Secret Villain in Toy story

by Emily Keen

Stinky Pete, Toy collector AI and Emperor Zurg are probably the most prominent crooks in Toy Story 3. Although there is one more character who has some mystery surrounding his intentions. Woody and Buzz of course, but they are not the ones we are referring to here.

It’s our adorable little penguin, who was saved by Woody from the sale of doom.

A fan theory suggests that Wheezy was not so innocent indeed. A Reddit user TheCircleOfKnife said that Wheezy actually had something sinister about him.

Wheezy was shelved owing to some issues with his squeaker and thus had no playtime with Andy. The Reddit user suggested, “Toys ca be jealous of one another”. This is probably why Wheezy felt left out when Woody and Buzz Show got to spend a lot of fun time with Andy.

“What’s the point in prolonging the inevitable? We’re all just one stitch away from here … to there,” Wheezy said strikingly on noticing the yard sale. In fact, Woody was the one who made an effort to hide Wheezy while Wheezy did not. The user suggests that this was a part of a bigger plan. Wheezy probably knew that Woody would act all heroic and end up getting sold in return. So with Woody out of the picture, Wheezy had Andy’s attention all to himself.

Wheezy could have rounded his arms around Buster’s collars tightly during the rescue mission. But he did not and once again Woody was there to his rescue. That caused woody to fall off the Buster. Wheezy did not even address the fact that Woody had fallen out and just let the Buster keep running.

When at the end of the film Woody is back, the Penguin felt relieved since he had this guilt within that he was responsible for all of Woody’s problems. That is the reason Wheezy is seen singing and dancing along with everyone celebrating Woody’s return but more importantly that indicates his own state of euphoria. Having said that, the musical act could have also been Wheezy trying to cover up his sinister motives by playing all nice and happy so that no one suspects his intentions. Are you on board with this theory?

Disney Secretly Deletes Sexual Misconduct Scenes From ‘Toy Story 2’

by Kaylen Summers

Toy Story 2 made a recent 4K release and some of the fans have noticed that one of the blooper scenes that featured during the closing credits was cut out. The scene involved the old prospector Stinky Pete being caught having a ‘questionable’ chat with the Barbie twins while the cameras were still rolling.

Pixar’s Toy Story movies are known for including fake outtakes in between the credits of the movies. Since the particular clip involves what appears to a ‘casting couch’ scenario, Disney might have thought that it might be best on their part to remove the scene from the new release. 

The scene involves Woody turning around his box to reveal Pete inside with the twins. Pete flirts with the twins saying: “And so, you two are absolutely identical? You know, I’m sure I could get you a part in Toy Story 3… I’m sorry, are we back? Oh! Alright, girls, lovely talking with you, yes, anytime you’d like some tips on acting, I’d be glad to chat with you. Alright, off you go, then!”

It is obvious that the scene jokes on sexual misconduct in Hollywood. However, the exclusion of the clip has brought more attention to the scene than before. Some also pointed out that the scene hasn’t always been included in all versions of the film such as the DVD release.

Whatever the case may be, it’s surprising how the bad joke got into the beloved Pixar sequel, considering that the studio’s main realm involves mostly movies for children. Interesting aspects to be noted is that John Lasseter, who co-founded Pixar and wrote and directed the first two Toy Story movies, took a leave of absence from the company in 2017 after admitting to “missteps” with female employees. 

Being in an era where abuse against women are being questioned loudly and boldly, it is appreciatable that a major studio like Disney took such a step. However, rather than correcting the mistakes that had happened already, it would be better if such huge production houses took effective measures of censorship and not let such content to be made.
