    Got my Toy Story 1/2 box set this weekend and was very impressed with the THX intro on TS1 (but not TS2 disk which I thought was strange).

    The normal THX intro is an insanely bassy noisy effect which just fills the room as the THX logo fades in.

    But in TS1, it 'breaks down' with lots of cracking and popping and the THX logo collapses.. The a little man puts on a jet-pack and flys around the room pulling switches and hammering.

    I thought it was really funny and was actually a good surround sound demo.

    I agree, much like the T2 UE THX logo the Toy Story ones were class, real good demo material. I could watch them all day. I'd love to see more customized THX logos.

    That THX trailer has been around for quite a while now, i don't think it was specially done for Toy Story. I think its called something like THX Tex

    I dont know if it has been included on any other DVD releases, so Toy Story may be the first, but it has been shown in THX equipped cinemas for over a year now. It is part of an ongoing series starring the THX mascot TEX the robot...I have seen the 'repair' trailer and the 'Cow' ones.....both are great!
