Toy Story 3 proved itself to be both a critical and box office smash this past weekend, breaking records as Pixar Studios’ highest-grossing opening weekend and earning a 98% on Rotten Tomatoes.


Yet, there are bound to be contrarians among us, those longing for a bit of grit beneath that Pixar sheen. Thankfully, someone with a keen sense of humor and exemplary syncing up skills has answered our prayers with a trailer that crosses Toy Story with The Greatest Television Show Of All Time, The Wire.


We can only hope that Jon Lasseter’s people will be making negotiations with David Chase’s people before the week is out.
