What does your G.I. Joe do when you go to school, and are you sure that your Barbie was wearing that blouse this morning?

In 1995, Disney introduced moviegoers to a whole new type of film with the first-ever fully computer-animated motion picture, Toy Story. All the while, the studio created a phenomenon of children needing to take double takes when they leave the room – just to be sure that their favorite toys aren’t coming to life when they’re not looking. Now, more than 20 years later, Woody and Buzz Lightyear are household names. With this new infographic from the team at Costume SuperCenter, you’ll learn five numbers that you may not have been aware of about the first in this franchise, including how many frames are in the finished product, and how long the movie is, in spite of being the shortest of the three Toy Story adventures.
