What was in the nixed Toy Story sequel? Don't ask Pixar.
"We purposely didn't look," says original TS alum Andrew Stanton. But for the more curious, here's a taste of what would have befallen Buzz, Woody & Co.: A malfunctioning Buzz loses control of his bodily functions - random speech bursts, a hand popping off-and accidentally scratches his kid owner, Andy, with his pointy arm stump. Against Buzz's will, the other toys ship him to Taipei, believing he'll be fixed. But Hamm the pig, working the Internet, discovers that Buzz in fact won't be repaired once he meets his toy-company makers because he's part of a massive recall. So the bedroom gang ship themselves to Taipei too, via a faster courier service, hoping to save their pal. Meanwhile, Buzz meets a bunch of caged-up recalled toys, , including Cozy Rosey (a tuck-in doll whose heating element catches fire), Jujubee Bee (a Pez knockoff), and a tall action-figure gal with defective gams named Jade-to whom Buzz delivers a punning take on his signature catchphrase: "To infinity and be-yotch!"
