I don’t know about you, but I am a huge Toy Story fan. I love Disney Pixar films and always thought they were such great family friendly movies and always had me laughing. Through the years, My family and I have enjoyed watching all the Toy Story films and I did not want to miss out on this one. I heard Toy Story 4 is in the works, however, it won’t be released until 2018. That is such a long time so in the meantime we can all get our Toy Story fix with these short films.
Toy Story That Time Forgot aired as a special on ABC in December 2014 as a Christmas Special. It does not seem like a Christmas special, but the animation and detail on the characters are simply amazing. Did we really expect anything less of Pixar?
Disney•Pixar proudly presents a hilarious new animated “Toy Story” adventure. During one of Bonnie’s post-Christmas play dates, the “Toy Story” crew find themselves in uncharted territory when the coolest set of action figures ever turn out to be dangerously delusional. It’s all up to Trixie, the triceratops, if the gang hopes to ever return to Bonnie’s room.
Featuring Voices from many of our favorite stars.

This short is approx 22 minutes and while I wish it went a little longer for myself, my 8yr thought it was the perfect length as he normally cannot sit and watch anything over 30-45 minutes before he loses his attention span.
