Everyone knows me at work as the Disney guy, having worked for both Walt Disney World and Disney Interactive in the past. My family loves everything Disney and we’ve been visiting the theme parks since I was a kid. This includes my sweet-as-pie grandparents. Man, are they a hoot. For them, Toy Story is a bit more obscure (they’ve seen some but not all of the films), so I thought it would be funny to have them guess the names of some of the characters from throughout the 4 films.
Paw Paw Terry and Juju are my grandparents on my mom’s side, and Granny and Paw Paw Johnny are my parents on my dad’s side. It’s really cute because they’re all best friends so it was fun to get to do this project with all of them so they can make fun of each other.
Here are their guesses.
Paw Paw Terry: Bob
Paw Paw Johnny: Woody
Paw Paw Terry was pretty confident about Bob, too.
Paw Paw Terry: Snowflake
Paw Paw Johnny: Casper
I almost want to give Juju half a point for “Spoony”.
Paw Paw Terry: Astro
Juju: Buzz Lightning
Granny: Bud Lightyear
Paw Paw Johnny: Buzz Lightyear
God y’all were all so close (well, except Paw Paw Terry, who thought his name was “Astro” because of the ride called BUZZ LIGHTYEAR Astro Blasters). Paw Paw Johnny takes the lead!
Paw Paw Terry: Betty
Juju: Little Bo Peep
Paw Paw Johnny: Little Bo Peep
Guess she’s little now.
Paw Paw Terry: Evel Knievel
Juju: Canadian Man
Granny: Evel Knievel
Paw Paw Johnny: Evel Knievel
Yo, Keanu Reeves should play Evel Knievel.
Paw Paw Terry: Mary Lou
Granny: Chatty Cathy
Paw Paw Johnny: Betty Boop
Juju was like “Baby” and I was like “Just…. Baby?” “Yup.”
Paw Paw Terry: Olive
Paw Paw Johnny: Woody’s Girlfriend, Patty
Sorry, Paw Paw Johnny, this cowgirl is into Space Rangers (especially when you turn on his Spanish mode).
Paw Paw Terry: Cabby Sue
Paw Paw Johnny: Lucy (from Peanuts)
I’m honestly shocked no one said Polly Pocket.
Paw Paw Terry: T-Rex George
Juju: Blue Dinosaur
Paw Paw Johnny: Rhino
SHE’S NOT EVEN A T-REX OR A RHINO
Ducky & Bunny
Paw Paw Terry: Peter Rabbit & Chickity Chick
Juju: Brer Rabbit & Tweety Dee
Granny: Chicky & Bunny
Paw Paw Johnny: Robby & Puddy
It was a good guess, Granny. A really good (obvious) guess. Kudos.
Paw Paw Terry: Raspberry Bear
Juju: Pink Bear
Paw Paw Johnny: Woofy
Alright, Paw Paw Terry I give you .001 points for guessing that Lotso smells like fruit (albeit you guessed the wrong fruit).
Paw Paw Terry: .001/12
Paw Paw Johnny: 3/12
Congrats Paw Paw Johnny! By some strand of luck, you’ve won by 1 point! I’d say it’s time to test your luck on your iPad Casino game.
I hope y’all enjoyed this as much as I did. I hope this inspired my grandparents to catch up on their Toy Story lore, too. Hit us up on Twitter if you enjoyed this and would want to see more of my grandparents being wholesome as heck.
Also, we have a sweet Toy Story item in this month’s Loot Crate DX, so you should definitely check that out!
