Top 10 Adult Jokes You Missed in the Toy Story Franchise

Rated G! Right? Welcome to MsMojo and today we’ll be counting down our picks for the top 10 adult jokes you missed in the “Toy Story” franchise.

For this list, we’ll be going over the adult references and humor that probably went over the heads of most kids, and probably even some grown-ups while they watched these animated children’s films.

#10: Toys Undressed
“Toy Story 2” (1999)

Despite a lack of…let’s say “accessories,” the toys in the world of the “Toy Story” films surprisingly have a concept of nudity. This is demonstrated several times during the second film. In one scene, after Woody tries to ride his trusty steed Bullseye, the horse’s saddle falls off; prompting embarrassment from the toy equine, who shuffles away covering his crotch. Another instance of this phenomenon happens when Hamm, a piggy bank, loses his cork and spills his change everywhere. Rather than worry about his loose coins, Hamm is more concerned with people seeing him without his cork. We don’t see much of a difference, but then again we’re not porcelain swine filled with money.

#9: “Jurassic Park” Chase
“Toy Story 2” (1999)

A trip to Al’s Toy Barn by Andy’s toys leads to all manner of chaos, including one reference to a ‘90s blockbuster franchise. When Rex loses a video game strategy guide, he jumps off the “tour” in an attempt to retrieve it. Unsuccessful, he is eager to catch back up with the rest of the gang, which leads to him chasing down the toy tour car. Mr. Potato Head spots him coming in the rearview mirror, in a clear reference to a similar T-Rex car chase scene that happens in “Jurassic Park.” While we’ll grant that kids who saw the movie in theaters probably got the joke - since the dinosaur adventure flick was huge in the ‘90s - later generations may not have spotted the reference.

#8: Pete’s a Creep
“Toy Story 2” (1999)

Stinky Pete is pretty unlikeable already, given that he’s the villain of “Toy Story 2.” However, arguably his most skeevy moment occurs during a gag reel at the film’s conclusion. During one of the “outtakes,” Pete is seen telling a pair of Barbie dolls that he can help them appear in “Toy Story 3.” Although he clarifies that he means “help them with acting tips,” the implications of an older man “assisting” two younger women in getting an acting gig for unspecified favors is all too apparent for adults, particularly in this day and age.

#7: Nice Neckband
“Toy Story 3” (2010)

The third “Toy Story” film sees Andy’s toys donated to a daycare center. Upon their arrival, they’re introduced to a lot of new toys. One of these is Ken, the male counterpart to Barbie, who falls for her at first sight and she for him. While he compliments her leg warmers, Barbie compliments him on his ascot… but she says it with enough of a pause in the middle of the word “ascot” that we’re pretty sure the filmmakers intended the compliment to be not just for Ken’s choice of wardrobe, if you catch our drift.

#6: “The Shining” Carpet
“Toy Story” (1995)

Sid is one creepy kid and Woody and Buzz have quite the ordeal when they’re taken to the sadistic boy’s house. Along with experiencing the twisted kid’s idea of playtime and some uncomfortable personal revelations, the house itself is unsettling, especially for those of us who have seen “The Shining.” The carpet pattern in the upstairs hallway resembles that in some of the halls of the Overlook Hotel in the Stephen King-based horror film. Woody and Buzz may not have to contend with stir-crazy dads attempting “redrum,” but Sid’s pretty bad enough.

#5: Watch the Sheep Tonight
“Toy Story” (1995)

The toys seem not only to have a concept of nakedness, but they also appear to have some idea of romance. The most prominent example in the franchise is between Woody and Bo Peep. The implications involved in the introduction to their relationship are also surprisingly adult as Bo thanks Woody for “rescuing” her flock of sheep during make-believe with Andy, and suggests she find someone else to watch them that night. This seems to imply that she’ll be spending time with Woody instead. It’s a little weird to think that this toy cowboy and shepherdess have gone for a roll in the hay, so to speak.

#4: Mrs. Potato Head’s Mouth
“Toy Story 3” (2010)

Andy’s toys’ stay at Sunnyside Daycare is not entirely pleasant, but they try to make the best of it. Still, after learning that Andy is looking for them and does care about them, the gang is all ready to depart, but they are stopped by Lotso. When Mrs. Potato Head gets in his face about it, the teddy bear removes the spud’s lips from her body, prompting her husband to proclaim that no one takes his wife’s mouth except him. While kids are bound to laugh at the mix and match nature of the Potato Heads’ body parts, adults see this double entendre about the couple’s marital activities for what it really is.

#3: Laser Envy
“Toy Story” (1995)

It’s no secret that Woody and Buzz Lightyear don’t get off on the best foot. Along with Buzz’s belief that he’s a real space hero, Woody also objects to all the attention the action figure receives, both from Andy and the rest of the toys. While Buzz is showing off his “laser,” Woody grumbles that it’s just a blinking light and not a real one. Mr. Potato Head remarks that Woody just has “laser envy,” due to not having a similar feature. If you need us to explain what word “laser” is being substituted for, you’re probably still a kid.

#2: The Word You’re Searching for
“Toy Story” (1995)

In the same scene where Woody and Buzz first meet, Woody is exasperated with trying to explain to Buzz that he isn’t the character he’s based on, but rather a toy. Buzz, in all his blissful ignorance, “corrects” Woody by telling him that the word he’s looking for to describe him is “space ranger”…which is two words, last we checked. Woody’s own retort is that the word he wants to use to describe Buzz can’t be used, as there are preschool toys present. For those still in preschool, or just slow on the uptake, that means he probably wants to use a swear!

Before we get to our top pick, here are a few honorable mentions:

Legs, “Toy Story” (1995)
She’s a Literal “Hooker!”

Threat a Sketch, “Toy Story” (1995)
Somehow, We Don’t Think It Wants to Play Hangman

Thoughts of Cheating, “Toy Story 2” (1999)
Now Kids, When a Married Toy Potato Thinks About Cheating on His Wife…

Some Words, “Toy Story 4” (2019)
We’re Guessing Some of Them Have 4 Letters

Picasso, “Toy Story” (1995)

#1: Buzz Extends His Wings
“Toy Story 2” (1999)

The second “Toy Story” film introduces several toys from the property Woody comes from: “Woody’s Roundup,” which also includes Jessie the cowgirl. Upon being taken in by Andy, Buzz becomes quite taken with her. While his attempts at getting to know her are stuttering and awkward, she nevertheless sees him as sweet, despite how she feels about space toys. When a doggy emergency necessitates that they free Andy’s dog from his room, Jessie’s quick and daring action surprises everyone, but possibly Buzz most of all; as his wings pop out, seemingly in response to the event. While kids no doubt pick up on the fact that it’s punctuating the moment, its…Freudian…implications probably go over their heads.
