Toy Story was almost called Toyz in the Hood

Toy Story 3 director Lee Unkrich has shared with his Twitter followers a selection of almost-titles for Pixar’s first Toy Story film (which have been dutifully compiled on Ain’t It Cool News).

Apparently, Toy Story was just a place-holder, and Pixar employees were encouraged to submit a better name. Although more than 200 titles were thrown around, Pixar settled on Toy Story. You’ll understand why after reading the below examples.

The New Toy
Made In Taiwan
Moving Buddies
To Infinity and Beyond
Wind-Up Heroes
The Cowboy & The Spaceman
Spurs & Rockets
Bring Me The Arm of Buzz Lightyear
Toyz in the Hood
Each Sold Separately
Wings & Pullstrings
Some Assembly Required
The Favourite

Discuss: Pixar – good at making movies; bad at giving them names. Care to offer up a better suggestion?
