    I love it! There are so many things inside the PIXAR movies that connect back to each other. I'm sure this is one of them.

    I see two different ages online for the first movie...6 and 8. Where is the 6 coming from? Andy seems awfully advanced for a 6 year old...

    That is pure genius.....I would have never guessed that----just genius. Can't believe I did not connect the dots. Now I did spot Sid as the garbage truck man because of his ugly tshirt....but not this. Just WOW!!!!!!! :rotfl2:

    Nicely done by the author. Just one thing bothers me.....

    Molly is a baby in the first movie, which means Andy's father either died or walked out not long before the movies started.

    Why is every father who isn't present in a narrative assumed to be a deadbeat dad? He could be serving in the military, he could be working overseas to provide for the family, he could be kicked out by the mom who decided he wasn't her type after all. Oh well, we'll just assume he's dead.

    Interesting article!

    Technically, if he's dead, he's not really a deadbeat Dad.

    I think it's just cleaner when the story doesn't address it to assume that a missing is dead. That way you don't project any bad actions or motives onto the Mom or her missing partner.

    The author said he was either dead or "walked out". I was taking "walked out" to mean he abandoned the family, I don't hear that phrase used any other way. I agree with you (in fact, just because he doesn't appear in the movies doesn't mean he's not there), it's the author of the article that made the assumption.

    Like in "Peanuts," the parents are irrelevant to the story. The Dad doesn't matter - neither does the Mom, really - but they chose to show her to us to help tug at our heart strings...

    Dad might be down in the living room reading the paper.

    I think his tweets kind of make fun of the pixar theories that people come up with. I would take that as him saying it isn't true. If it were true, I think they would have implied it much heavier than the "evidence" this theory provided.

    I could be wrong but I believe I read somewhere that humans are really expensive to animate so they left him out because they didn't feel that he was necessary to the plot.

    ...or perhaps he's keeping something under wraps. ;) If there IS a TS4 being considered, and this IS something of a plot point, would ANYONE admit to it?

    If Pixar did Toy Story 4, it would focus on a story revolving around Bonnie and her family. It was made clear in Toy Story 3 that Andy has moved on. But for now, I'm really enjoying the TV specials! Can't wait for the Christmas special coming later this year! :)

    Really enjoyed this article and the possibilities it suggests. I think I'm going to rewatch the three of them now...

    This is so true and this is why I believe the author or blogger completely!!!!!! You just can't make something like that up-----just admit it instead of denying it.

    Hm.... that's a good idea on this slow Oscar Sunday. :rotfl2: Thor 2 came out this weekend so I wanted to watch that----but it's completely sold out everywhere on Redbox and all the streaming websites want you to buy it----it's less than 20 bucks so I might just have to. :sad2:
