Hero Overview

Reach for the sky!
~ Woody's catchphrase.
Tuesday night's plastic corrosion awareness meeting was, I think, a big success, and we want to thank Mr. Spell for putting that on for us. Thank you, Mr. Spell.

He is a pull-string cowboy doll who was on a popular 1950s children's show called Woody's Roundup with Jessie, Bullseye, and Stinky Pete. Years after Woody's Roundup was cancelled, Woody became the favorite toy of a young boy named Andy Davis. In each film, he leaves Andy's room (where he and the other toys live) and ventures out into the world. After Andy grew up, Woody become one of the toys of a young girl named Bonnie Anderson.

In the films, short films, and the TV specials, he is voiced by Tom Hanks, who also portrayed Forrest Gump and Fred Rogers. In other media, he is voiced by Tom Hanks' younger brother, Jim Hanks.

As the toys venture into their unknown future, Woody remains the voice of reason. As their dependable leader, he ensures that no toy gets left behind.

Listen, Lightsnack. You stay away from Andy. He's mine. And NO ONE is taking him away from me.

~ Woody standing up to Young Xehanort.

Audio Samples

Trivia

  • Woody is the first protagonist in a computer-animated feature film, because Toy Story was the world's first computer-animated film ever.
  • What attracted Tom Hanks to voice Woody was during his childhood, he would always wonder if his toys were alive and moved around when nobody was in his room.
  • Before Tom Hanks was cast, the late Paul Newman originally auditioned for the role of Woody, although Newman would later voice Doc Hudson in a later Pixar film, Cars. In addition to Newman, Kevin Kline, Mel Gibson, Steve Martin, John Travolta, John Cusack and Matthew Broderick auditioned for the role of Woody.
  • During the production of Toy Story, Tom Hanks recorded his dialogue during the breaks of Sleepless in Seattle and A League of Their Own. He didn't want to record his dialogue during the breaks of Philadelphia or Forrest Gump, because he felt he shouldn't do comedic roles in between minutes of playing serious roles.
  • Woody makes a cameo in one of the additional outtakes of A Bug's Life as a crewman when he enters the frame, holding a clapper-board upside down, to mark the end of a scene gone wrong. Flik would "return the favor" by appearing in a post-credits scene in Toy Story 2, only to learn that Pixar's first sequel was not A Bug's Life 2.
  • Woody, along with Buzz Lightyear and Hamm, appears in Cars as car versions during the end credits. Woody is a woody wagon.
  • Woody is the only Pixar movie franchise protagonist to be the protagonist of all the movies in his series.
  • While Woody is voiced by Tom Hanks in all the films while his brother, Jim Hanks, voices most of the Woody toys and him in the video games and Toy Story shorts (excluding Toy Story Toons).
  • Woody is one of the four characters to appear in all four films, shorts, and the TV special, Toy Story of Terror and Toy Story That Time Forgot. The other three being Buzz, Rex, and Mr. Potato Head.
  • Lee Unkrich, director of Toy Story 3, has revealed on his Twitter that Woody's full name is "Woody Pride," and has been since the earliest days of developing the original Toy Story. However, his last name has never been used in any of the four films. His name was based on actor Woody Strode.
  • When Jessie first meets Woody in Toy Story 2, she exclaims, "Sweet mother of Abraham Lincoln!" Abraham Lincoln's mother was Nancy Hanks, a blood relative of Woody's voice actor Tom Hanks, who is a direct descendant of an uncle of Nancy Hanks.
  • Woody was originally going to be a dummy and was not a cowboy.
  • In the original story pitch of Toy Story, Woody had a markedly more distasteful personality; having the character of one whom had let his role as "leader" go to his head and had little compassion towards his peers. One notable example of this from the original script is that Woody actually throws Buzz out the window on purpose, and doesn't care one bit over what had happened or what the other toys thought of the incident. It was this poor choice in characterization that nearly led to Toy Story being canceled after a Black Friday Viewing. However, Pixar was given another chance, and over the next two weeks, they reworked the movie plot, giving Woody a more likable character. According to John Lasseter, they wanted the audience to be like, "No, Woody, don't make those choices," instead of just, "Wow, what a jerk."
    • Interestingly, that distasteful personality was also possessed by Lotso, albeit much darker. However, this was the case with Woody in Black Friday, which was used to make Lotso.
  • Woody is based on John Lasseter's Casper doll, as well as the Howdy Doody puppets from the 1950s.
  • The phrase "I'd like to join your posse, boys, but first I'm gonna sing a little song" was not spoken by Woody's voice box in the first two Toy Story films, however, it was originally spoken in a deleted scene for Toy Story where Sid tortured Buzz and Woody.
  • Woody is the only one of Andy's toys to "come alive" while in the presence of a human.
  • Woody has 229 animation points of movement in his face.
  • Woody losing his arm in Toy Story 2 is very similar to when Buzz lost his in Toy Story, the only difference is that Woody lost his right arm while Buzz lost his left arm in the first film.
  • Woody, along with Buzz, was going to be one of Sora's summons in Kingdom Hearts II Final Mix, but was scrapped because Square Enix had not yet claimed the rights to Pixar properties, although a complete model of him without any textures was found in the game's code. Later, the D23 trailer of Kingdom Hearts III showed a new world based on Toy Story, where Woody and Buzz become Sora's party members to find and save Andy Davis at Galaxy Toys before Young Xehanort does. It is the first instance of a Pixar-based Kingdom Hearts world.
  • He is the only protagonist to appear in all four films: Toy Story, Toy Story 2, Toy Story 3, Toy Story 4. This is because he has a lot more lessons to learn than Buzz Lightyear.
