Toy Story (41:57)

Toy Story 4

It’s been more than 2 years since Fantasia, but our 118th T100P podcast finally features the third animated flick on AFI’s list. Pixar’s first blockbuster has held up so well. It’s funny, heart-warming and was an absolute game-changer for the entire industry. Before you fall with style into the story of Woody & Buzz, get you some Sparkplug Coffee!
