    Oh yeah, and let's top it off with a movie where he is quite literally not a toy.

      The director also said something along the lines of "Buzz's stubborness and inability to cope with the time dilations for most of the story is meant to represent how the toy version keeps denying reality" in interviews, so that's continuing the "No idea how to use him" trend.

    While I agree with your point, they didn't "just have him do nothing" in the fourth movie; they did yet another variant of the "not a toy" bit. (TS4 Buzz knows he's not a toy, but is kind of moronic about it.)

      He knows he's a toy I mean. I need to wake up.

    What I liked about Toy Story 2's Buzz was that even though his character conflict from the first movie was over, he still did something and grew as a character. Instead of thinking he was a real space ranger, he strengthened his skills as a leader and had to convince Woody of the gift he'd be given with Andy.
    TS3 Buzz was okay. In retrospect the Spanish thing really was just to do the "deluded spaceman" thing again but with a twist. Then you have TS4 which just has him be a completely useless fricking fool without a conscience.
    If they wanted to make Woody leaving the gang more impactful, they should have had this be a buddy movie again. I don't know why after the first Toy Story Buzz and Woody never did anything actually together again.

    Didn't he go limp when Andy came into his room?

      there's a theory that toys going limp in the presence of a person is automatic. But older and more experienced toys like Woody are able to keep themselves moving while humans are in the room because they know when to go limp

      He still believed he was on an alien planet, and since the natives welcomed him he simply goes along with their culture, which is to freeze up when Andy was around. He does not do this in every instance. He ran for cover when the truck showed up at the gas station, he saw no issue with riding shotgun in the Pizza Planet truck, and had to be told to freeze up when Sid reached for a toy in his bag. Hell, sneaking into Pizza Planet was more because he thought the place was "heavily guarded", not because he's a toy running around when a toy shouldn't be moving at all. It isn't until he gets over his existential crisis that he starts doing it naturally.

      Pretty much.
      1 was the only movie where he had an arc, 2/3/4 were all about Woody. I expect 5 will also be about Woody. Tim Allen also phoned in his performance in 4.

      I would too if that garbage script was given to me.

    At what point did Woody stop thinking he was the real Sheriff Woody and then completely and utterly forget Woody's Roundup existed?

      Probably around the time his original owner, Andy's dad, died in the war.

        Andy's dad didn't die, he walked out.

    TS3 was redundant as hell in multiple respects. The only actual payoff was Andy handing his toys off to a new generation in a heartwarming sendoff to the film series. Then they said "SIKE" and kept it going anyway.

    Toy Story 1 is a great film, no doubt. It's one of the greatests, period. But a lot of Pixar movies unfortunately follow in its footsteps, for the worse.

    Both him and Jessie were done dirty, it's one of the reasons I never liked TS3
