Here are some rejected titles for Toy Story

08.23.2011

Today on his Twitter, TOY STORY 3 director Lee Unkrich joked that the recently revealed UNTITLED PIXAR MOVIE ABOUT DINOSAURS could conceivably retain that name, since TOY STORY was originally a working title that ultimately stuck.

That prompted Unkrich to unearth some of the 200 or so rejected titles that were solicited from the entire Pixar staff in a desperate search for a suitable name for the first TOY STORY. Behold some of the possibilities:

MOVING BUDDIES

MADE IN TAIWAN

THE NEW TOY

SPURS & ROCKETS

THE COWBOY & THE SPACEMAN

TO INFINITY AND BEYOND

TOYZ IN THE HOOD

WIND-UP HEROES

EACH SOLD SEPARATELY

BRING ME THE ARM OF BUZZ LIGHTYEAR

WINGS & PULLSTRINGS

While some of them are decent enough and others presumably gags (particularly the Peckinpah reference), overall we should probably be glad that Woody and Buzz wound up in the franchise as we know it...

Wait... you're telling me we could have had Toyz in the Hood? Now wouldn't THAT have been something? I think Ice Cube would have really lent this franchise some class.

It's pretty cool to see some of the other titles they were considering, but like probably everyone, I'm glad they went with their working title. It's simple and lends itself well to such an iconic series.

I can see why they went with Toy Story. None of the other one's quite fit. Especially if your thinking about a sequel. some of the titles make it all about Buzz and Woody, which the films are clearly not all about them.

This one's easy

They should have used COWBOYS AND ALIENS while it was still available.

The name "Toy Story" suggests a sweeping adventure that can go anywhere while keeping it relatable, which is fucking excellent. "To Infinity and Beyond" is close, but loses the relatability aspect.

OMG imagine if they had gone with MADE IN TAIWAN, would the movie had been such a success?

Wind-up Heroes would've made for a good title.
