Wheezy, often known as Wheezy the Penguin, is a major character in the 1999 Disney/Pixar film Toy Story 2.
He is a rubber toy penguin with a red bowtie who squeaks when you squeeze him. He often sings in a deep, celebratory voice to all his friends, and is also a nervous wreck. Wheezy's best friends were Woody and Buzz Lightyear.
He was voiced by the late Joe Ranft.
Toy Story 2
Despite being a major character, Wheezy has a few scenes of screen-time in the film. He is first seen in Andy's new house. Woody accidentally finds him on a shelf. His speaker is broken, so Woody puts Wheezy on Buster. After Woody pushes Wheezy, he thanks him for being a savior. Wheezy is later seen at the end of the film when Woody is reunited with Andy back home, leading the toys to a song with the Barbie dolls as back-up singers to celebrate Woody's return home.
Toy Story 3
Wheezy only appears in Andy's childhood on her mother's camera. He is sold to the yard sale, according to Woody. Wheezy has no spoken dialogue, possibly due to Joe Ranft's death and Charlie Adler being the replacement for Joe Ranft.

Wheezy is an unlockable playable character. He is an Epic Character, the rarest kind of character to get from the prize machine.
- In Toy Story 2, Wheezy had a more Mary Jo Catlett-esque quality to his voice, sounding closer to Mrs. Puff from SpongeBob SquarePants.
- The posters think he (along with Bo Peep) will join Buzz and his friends on their mission to rescue Woody. But when the film is released, he has a few scenes of screen-time and a barrel of lines.
