Toy Story

Toy Story Quote: “You are a sad, strange, little man. You have my pity. Farewell.” – Buzz Lightyear

“Toy Story” won the Best of Disney category, and it’s easy to see why this Pixar powerhouse spawned an entire franchise. The characters are unforgettable, the attention to detail is unrivaled, and the voice talent is unbeatable.

This episode is all about Dick Ebert. One second he’s perving out over The Little Mermaid, the next he’s impersonating Randy Newman. Big D even brought a special guest along for this ’90s movie review: Drew Zakmin, of the One Headlight podcast.

Gene Lyons joins them to discuss their favorite childhood toys, the dark side of Woody the Cowboy, Ram Man, Fisto, and parallels between “Toy Story” and its less-popular contemporary “The Christmas Story.”

Warning: Do not look directly at Baby Molly’s face at any point during “Toy Story.” It’s like a less terrifying Momo.
