Die-hard ‘Toy Story’ fans erupt in anger over scribbles on Woody’s boot

This is an abomination!

We’re about to separate those who like Toy Story fans from true diehard “Toy Story is life” fans. Yours truly happens to be one of the latter.

A TikTok video of a Woody doll at Disneyland that was posted on July 18 has gained over 8 million views so far. EIGHT. MILLION. VIEWS.

See the TikTok video here.

That’s because in the short TikTok clip, the user sees a Woody doll at a shop at Disneyland and picks up his boot to reveal that the name “Andy” is no longer scribbled on the underneath side.

The doll made in the likeness of Woody is now sold with the name “Bonnie” on its boot. It’s as if the first 3 installments of the Toy Story franchise never existed. The TikTok user (@sabrinafajardo) who posted the video uses the app’s speech generating function to say, “You know you’re old when the Toy Story toys at Disneyland say ‘Bonnie’ and not ‘Andy.'”

She also captioned the post with the words, “Bye Andy,” reminding us of the horrible nightmare poor Woody had before Andy left for Cowboy Camp.

Fans of the wildly successful Pixar film franchise posted comments, conveying their sadness, disappointment and even outrage at Bonnie’s name having replaced Andy’s.

“Bonnie didn’t even appreciate him like Andy did,” one user commented.

Another user responded by asking, “Who the hell is Bonnie?” (ok, this user–probably not a “Toy Story” is life fan–most likely didn’t watch past Toy Story 2.)

Another user made the comment, “IT SHOULD SAY ANDY. Bonnie didn’t care about Woody.” (I mean, for real!)

The franchise is so popular and so well-loved by so many, that the TikTok video actually inspired other users to video themselves checking the boots of their respective Woody toys. Older versions displayed the name “Andy,” while newer toys absolutely had Bonnie’s name on the boot.

There were even videos showing users who discovered that the newer versions of Buzz Lightyear had also fallen prey to the “Bonnie” syndrome.


About Becky Burkett

I'm an enthusiastic writer who finds joy in random things like cold weather, snow, "I Love Lucy," "The Andy Griffith Show," journals full of blank paper, countdowns to Christmas, the month of December, "Toy Story," "Sleeping Beauty," my 4 kids, my 4 shih tsus, Disney Parks history, Imagineering and visiting the parks. I think Walt Disney is the standard against which genius should be measured. I love to write about Disney Parks, Disney history, all things Imagineering and PIXAR. I adore the colors, story and art direction of Disney's "Sleeping Beauty" (Team Make it Blue!), and "Toy Story" is life (minus "Toy Story 4"). I believe Walt Disney was so much more than an entertainment and theme park tycoon; I believe he was a savant with a vision for life and how it could be if happiness and kindness are strived for. I love Biergarten at EPCOT and 1900 Park Fare at Disney's Grand Floridian. You can find me croonin' with the birdies at the Enchanted Tiki Room, chillin' on the PeopleMover or hangin' with Woody and the gang at Toy Story Land. I'm always looking for Imagineers in the parks, and I'd rather meet Joe Rohde and Tony Baxter than anyone in Hollywood! Hey, if you dream it, you really can do it!
