TV: Toy Story That Time Forgot

Premiered: December 2, 2014

On: ABC

Starring: Tom Hanks, Tim Allen, Kristen Schaal, Kevin McKidd, Emily Hahn, Wallace Shawn, Steve Purcell, Jonathan Kydd, R.C. Cope, Don Rickles, Timothy Dalton, Lori Alan, Joan Cusack & Emma Hudak

While this is thinly disguised as a Christmas special, this is definitely has more of a prehistoric feel than a deck-the-halls feel.

Bonnie (Emily Hahn) goes to her friend’s house for a post-Christmas play date and leaves Buzz (Tim Allen), Woody (Tom Hanks), Rex (Wallace Shawn) and Trixie (Kristen Schaal) on the side for a new videogame system. And the toys they get involved with are less than good playmates.

While she is absolutely adorable, this story focuses mostly on Trixie – who was introduced in Toy Story 3 – and unfortunately leaves the majority of your favorite characters on the sidelines.

The story feels a bit recycled as well. The other dinosaur toys don’t know they’re toys and have to be convinced that their world isn’t real – like Buzz in the original film.

Final say: The movies are better. ★★☆☆☆
