Woody's Roundup is a fictitious puppet show-within-a-show in the 1999 Disney/Pixar animated film, Toy Story 2. It is sponsored by a cereal brand called Cowboy Crunchies. It is also the show's opening theme song performed by Riders in the Sky.

In the film, the show ran from 1949-1957 and gained a great deal of popularity, especially for its lead character, Sheriff Woody. However, the show was canceled after the launch of Sputnik 1 that made westerns less popular with kids, as Stinky Pete declared that "once the astronauts went up, children only wanted to play with 'space' toys" and Woody remarks on how he know how that feels (referencing his jealously towards Buzz from the first film). The final episode ended on a cliffhanger at the Grand Canyon that, according to Stinky Pete, was never resolved, yet Woody and company remained pretty sure that it was indeed "Woody's finest hour."


Official Description[]

A crucial story element involved Woody discovering his past life as a TV star. Delving back to the early days of black-and-white television, the Pixar team envisioned Woody’s Roundup in the primitive marionette format of the day. To capture that authenticity, the crew enlisted various CGI processes to make the vintage television footage look not only old but also like it had been stored in a garage.


Look, the thing is, I'm a rare Sheriff Woody doll, and these guys are my Roundup gang.
―Woody attempts to tell Buzz Lightyear about his Roundup gang

The main cast of the show consisted of:

Most of the gang shared personalities similar to their "real world" counterparts owned by Al, with the biggest exception being Stinky Pete. On Woody's Round Up, he is a joke character: a friendly bumbling fool that normally injures himself from his stupidity. However, Al's Stinky Pete is much wiser and became bitter from being an unsold toy for several years.

The Roundup gang is about to be sold to the Konishi Toy Museum in Tokyo, Japan, but due to Buzz Lightyear's interference as part of his rescue mission, Woody, Jessie, and Bullseye go back to Andy's house while the Prospector ends up with a little girl named Amy.

Untitled penultimate episode[]

Will Woody and Bullseye land to safety? Can they reach Jessie and Stinky Pete in time? Tune in next week for the exciting conclusion: 'Woody's Finest Hour!'
―Announcer, at the end of the episode

During the next to the last episode, the Prospector and Jessie are trapped in an old abandoned mine. Jessie decides they've got to get out of the mine, but Prospector, wanting some light to find his gold, lights a "candle," which, to Jessie's knowledge, turns out to be a stick of dynamite that will blast them to smithereens. Jessie then calls to the critters with her yodeling and tells them to scurry off and get Sheriff Woody. Meanwhile, Woody has nearly finished building a new schoolhouse with help from Bullseye. Just then, the critters reach Woody, and he learns that Jessie and the Prospector are in danger, awaiting his rescue. Woody mounts Bullseye, telling the horse to "ride like the wind!". As Woody and Bullseye run off, Jessie tries to fan the flames out, then the Prospector tries to smother it out by jumping on it, but burns his butt instead. Woody and Bullseye then jump over the Grand Canyon as the announcer calls for the end of the episode.

Song lyrics[]

Woody's Roundup, right here every day
Woody's Roundup, come on, it's time to play!

There's Jessie, the yodeling cowgirl
(Yo-de-lady, yo-de-lady, yo-de-lady oh-ee)
Bullseye, he's Woody's horse
(He's a smart one)
Pete the old Prospector
And Woody, the man himself, of course

It's time for Woody's Roundup
He's the very best
He's the rootinest, tootinest, cowboy
In the wild, wild west

(musical interlude)

Woody's Roundup, come on, gather round
Woody's Roundup, where nobody wears a frown

Bad guys go running, whenever he's in town
He's the rootinest, tootinest, shootinest, hootinest cowboy around!
Woody's Roundup...!

  • Woody's Roundup is Woody's answer to Buzz Lightyear's Buzz Lightyear of Star Command.
  • The theme song for Woody's Roundup is heard in its entirety during the film's credits. It is listed as Track 1 on the Toy Story 2 Soundtrack and on the 2000 album Woody's Roundup: A Rootin' Tootin' Collection of Woody's Favorite Songs by Riders in the Sky.
  • Ash Brannon and John Lasseter, the director and co directors of the Toy Story series, created the merchandise of the TV show themselves, which they claimed was a great deal of fun.
    • On the cover of Life magazine showing the success of the show, it has the date January 12, 1957 which is John's official birthday.
    • The Ball Toss Woody game is Ash's favorite of the merchandise he helped create.
    • According to John in his theme of the Cowboy Crunchies cereal, if you saved twenty box tops of the cereal and sent them to the company, you would get a Woody's Roundup collector's plate, each one composed of a Roundup gang character. Al is shown to own all four.
    • Tom Hanks actually had a Woody Bubble Blower in the recording studio with him during sessions recording dialogue for Toy Story 2.
  • The Woody's Roundup scenes were not created using actual puppets, but by modifying the existing character models to add mouth joints as well as puppet strings and animating them in a puppet-like fashion.
  • The actual lyrics for the theme song of Woody's Roundup are slightly different from the one's heard during the TV episode intro.
    • The song heard during the TV episode intro is missing the first line "Woody's Roundup, right here every day."
    • Also, the line "And the man himself, of course. It's time for Sheriff Woody" is substituted for "And Woody the man himself, of course. It's time for Woody's Roundup" in the TV intro.
  • The final episode was, according to the announcer, going to be about "Woody's Finest Hour."
    • At the airport, when Jessie is about to be loaded into a plane bound for Japan, Woody tells Bullseye to "ride like the wind" as they (with Buzz) gallop across the airfield. Also, he even says, "Hey, howdy, hey!" as he, Buzz and Bullseye go to save Jessie. During the chase scene's opening minutes, the final next to episode's climactic music is heard. When Woody is rescuing Jessie from the plane that is about to take off, Woody orders Jessie to let go of the plane, telling her to "pretend it's the final episode of Woody's Roundup." After they find out together, in which Woody and Jessie swing down from the plane using Woody's pull-string and land on Bullseye, Jessie triumphantly describes the rescue as, "That was definitely Woody's finest hour!"
    • In the scene where Woody turned on the TV to show Buzz and the other toys his show, the episode actually turns out to be "Woody's Finest Hour"—as evidenced by the dialog that can be heard after Buzz leaves Woody—which suggests that Stinky Pete lied to Woody and Jessie about that episode never airing, probably because he didn't want them to see how the final episode ended because its moral contradicts his belief that being a collector's item is better than being loved and played with by a child. This counts as a foreshadowing to Stinky Pete's true nature (as he had not yet been revealed to be a villain up to that point).
  • Woody's Roundup appears in Toy Story 3: The Video Game ("Toy Box" mode), in which you can customize the town.
  • Woody's Roundup is likely an allusion to such classic western puppet shows as Howdy Doody.
    • The show also shares the same duration with the iconic western show The Lone Ranger.
  • Stinky Pete's phrase: "My biscuits are burnin'!" after accidentally setting his rear end on fire during the would-been penultimate episode could be a possible reference to a similar phrase said by Yosemite Sam of Looney Tunes fame in the film Who Framed Roger Rabbit.
  • The song "You've Got a Friend in Me", used as the main theme for the Toy Story tetralogy, is actually this show's in-universe ending theme.
