"Premiere: Hey, is it true that your Buzz Lightyear toys outsell Tom Hanks' Woody?
Tim Allen: I never let him forget it. In interviews, Tom's held Buzz's head, pretended that kids are getting injuries, and said, "You may outsell me, but there'll be more lawsuits." [laughs]""Premiere: Who knows, but you'll live forever as Buzz Lightyear anyway. Not so shabby.
Tim Allen: Listen, I love Buzz, I love Santa, I love the iconic stuff I've been able to do. It's pigeon-holed me and put me in a hole that I have to dig out of, but hey-even if that's the hole I live in, then it's all right with me."
