You’d think that Woody, Buzz, and the Toy Story crew already exhausted the narrative juice out of the franchise by the time the 3rd film closed its pages on Andy’s childhood, but a couple of shorts that are set after the events of Toy Story 3 later and we can see that there’s still a lot of mileage out of these toys. Case in point: the 22-minute TV special Toy Story That Time Forgot. Toy ...
