Toy Story is a CGI animated film series that began with the original 1995 film, Toy Story, produced by Pixar Animation Studios and released by Walt Disney Pictures. The plot centers around the idea that all toys, unknown to humans, are secretly alive, and the films focus on a diverse group of toys that feature a classic cowboy, Sheriff Woody, and modern spaceman, Buzz Lightyear.
In "Chris Cross", Stewie tries to impress Brian with the works of Anne Murray by singing "You Needed Me" before an audience of his toys. After he succeeds in winning over Brian, he notes that all of the toys were impressed but Buzz Lightyear, who was absent. A cutaway gag shows Buzz in a bar picking up girls using his catchphrase.
