An ageless Bart Simpson he isn't.

It's been a decade since we've seen Andy (voiced by John Morris), the plaything-loving boy whose action figures come to splendid life in the animated classics 'Toy Story' (1995) and 'Toy Story 2' (1999), and, well, he's done grown up.

In the first full-length trailer for Disney/Pixar's 'Toy Story 3' (opening June 18, 2010), the oblivious owner of Woody (Tom Hanks), Buzz (Tim Allen), Hamm (John Ratzenberger) and pals is about to leave for college. An ageless Bart Simpson he isn't.

And since lugging his toy chest to campus would equate to social suicide (though, from the looks of his unchanging room, we're not quite sure how he managed through high school), this leaves our plastic heroes in panic.

Are they getting thrown out? Should they all be getting hysterical?! Are they being sold on eBay? (If Andy only knew their real worth ...) Nope, they'll just find a new home -- a far more treacherous one, with threats of dismemberment, breakage and unlawful nostril entry ever present.




At this point it seems like a cliché to talk about the infallibility of Pixar – they're 10 for 10 now (with 'Up' being their latest triumph), they're unparalled in the world of animation, etc.

But we have to hand it to them for another victory with this first look, at first sweetly evocative (set, of course, to the sounds of Randy Newman), then predictably hilarious.

Our only (minor) complaint: We don't get a look at the buzzed-about new character, Ken (as in Barbie's Ken doll, voiced by Michael Keaton). But if our recent chat with Tim Allen is any indication, they're keeping Ken under wraps until next summer.
