The first title under the real Walt Disney Gold Classic Collection was Toy Story, released on January 11, 2000 on VHS, and on October 17, 2000 on DVD (with Toy Story 2; a stand-alone DVD was released in 2001). This Special Edition was available until May 1, 2003.


The first full-length feature film animated entirely on computers, Toy Story is the original smash hit that captured the hearts of audiences worldwide.

As six-year-old Andy's favorite toy, Woody (Tom Hanks) is confident in his role as room leader. But when Buzz Lightyear (Tim Allen) crash-lands into Woody's world as Andy's most important birthday present, a rivalry is created that lands the duo inside the home of Sid - the toy-torturing boy next door. As Woody and Buzz work together to escape, they realize they've got the perfect each other!

Voiced by a powerhouse comedic cast, and featuring Randy Newman's Academy-Award-nominated music, Toy Story etched its name into motion picture history and earned director John Lasseter a Special Achievement Academy Award. Now you can own the one that started it all!
