The Downfall: JosephFinn: Hell, all you need is to see the original demo real for Toy Story. (Available on the DVD.) it's much darker and frankly, Woody is an asshole in it.



I found this interesting bit from the movie's Wikipedia page:

Every couple of weeks, Lasseter and his team would put together their latest set of storyboards or footage to show Disney. In early screen tests, Pixar impressed Disney with the technical innovation but convincing Disney of the plot was more difficult. At each presentation by Pixar, Katzenberg would tear much of it up, giving out detailed comments and notes. Katzenberg's big push was to add more edginess to the two main characters. Disney wanted the film to appeal to both children and adults, and asked for adult references to be added to the film. After many rounds of notes from Katzenberg and other Disney execs, the general consensus was that Woody had been stripped of almost all charm. Tom Hanks, while recording the dialogue for the story reels, exclaimed at one point that the character was a jerk. Lasseter and his Pixar team had the first half of the movie ready to screen, so they brought it down to Burbank to show to Katzenberg and other Disney executives on November 19, 1993, a day they later dubbed "Black Friday." The results were disastrous, and Schneider, who was never particularly enamored of Katzenberg's idea of having outsiders make animation for Disney, declared it a mess and ordered that production be stopped immediately. Katzenberg asked colleague Tom Schumacher why the reels were bad. Schumacher replied bluntly: "Because it's not their movie anymore."

Lasseter was embarrassed with what was on the screen, later recalling, "It was a story filled with the most unhappy, mean characters that I've ever seen."

Is it any coincidence that the DreamWorks animated movies seem like they have less humanity than Pixar's?

Brainsick: The knockoffs are far, far worse than anything in that blog

1: Stoned out of his gourd
2: Twenty years later, had let himself go, seen at a Convention
3: Push ups? Double handed elephant hand job? First generation Chimpanzee/Woody genetic experiment?

Remember kiddos, a lot of the complaints here about it being "old" are usually followed up by a "It's been on so-and-so for years!" Yeah, it has, but not on something broad-spectrum like Fark. How many of the Pervy Woody pics are actually Fark-worthy? Few, but finally enough to get a link, now.
