Story Synopsis:
Set in a world where toys have a life of their own when people are not present, Toy Story is a sophisticated and delightfully irreverent comedy adventure that represents the first full-length feature ever to be created entirely through the use of computer animation (and also the first collaboration between Disney and the wonderfully inventive Pixar Animation Studios).

DVD Picture:

Compression is top notch, and the visuals are abolutely stunning. (Suzanne Hodges)
