In Toy Story that Time Forgot, Trixie, (Kristen Schaal) Bonnie’s triceratops, wishes that Bonnie would play with her as a dinosaur for once. She’s been everything but a dinosaur, and Trixie wants a change of pace! After Christmas, Bonnie is invited over to her friend Mason’s house for a playdate, so she brings Trixie, Rex (Wallace Shawn), Woody (Tom Hanks), Buzz, (Tim Allen), and a new toy, Angel Kitty (Emma Hudak) also known as Confucius Cat, along for the ride. When Bonnie joins Mason with his new game console, the toys are left to their own devices in the playroom, where they encounter delusional and dangerous action figures called Battlesaurs, lead by the hilariously hammy Reptillus Maximus (Kevin McKidd). Trixie and Rex are welcomed immediately, but any toys that aren’t dinosaurs are considered fresh meat for the Battlesaurs’ gladiatorial games. Can Trixie teach her fellow dinos reason? Will Woody and Buzz make it out alive, or are they dryer lint?
In the avant garde film Toys in the Attic, we meet a mismatched community of antique toys that live in an attic of a home in Prague. They include Buttercup, (Vivian Schilling) a pretty doll who runs a boarding house of sorts, housing Sir Handsome (Cary Elwes) a chivalrous marionette with no strings, Teddy (Forest Whitaker) a humble teddy bear, and Laurent (Marcelo Tubert) a clay blob with a heart of gold. When an evil bust, called the Head of State, in the other side of the attic takes a shine to pretty Buttercup he sets out to capture her and take her to his dirty, grey, totalitarian empire. When his plan succeeds, Buttercup’s friends set out to rescue her, joined by the rest of the toy community as soon as word gets out. It takes the courage of the whole toy town to rescue the doll and literally clean up the empire on the other side.
