3.5 4.0 from 2 reviews

Woody is kidnapped by a greedy toy collector and finds out that he was the star of a popular '50s children's show (think Howdy Doody) with a posse of his own. Buzz and the other denizens of Andy's room set out to save him, and in the process meet up with Buzz's arch-nemesis Emperor Zurg. All of the original cast members return to their now-classic characters, and the plentiful new characters, in-jokes, and tributes to other movies keep this installment just as entertaining for kids and adults as the original. This one actually has more depth than the first, dealing with issues such as mortality and the meaning of (a toy's) life. Watch for the outtakes reel while the final credits roll.
