In 1995, Pixar Animation Studios and Walt Disney Pictures produced and released the first feature-length computer-animated film — Toy Story.

Toy Story is about a world where toys are actually alive and pretend to be lifeless only when humans are around. It also features a human protagonist: Andy, a little boy. The main characters of the movie, Sheriff Woody (Andy’s favorite toy) and Buzz Lightyear (the new toy Andy gets on his birthday), become rivals fighting for the child’s love.

In the story, every old toy fears being replaced whenever children receive new gifts, and Woody knows that he has to do anything in his power to remain Andy’s favorite one.

All the fuss about being the “best” for Andy eventually ends with the two main toy characters helping each other, driving a narrative arc that goes from rivalry to teamwork and friendship.

Because friends are such an important part of our lives, we need to remind them every now and then just how much they mean to us.
