Sidney "Sid" Phillips is the main antagonist of the 1995 Disney Pixar animated film, Toy Story and a minor character in Toy Story 3. He is voiced by Erik von Detten.
Why He Intentionally Tortures Toys Just For Fun
- He is arguably the single weakest Toy Story antagonist in the entire series. At least the Toy Story sequels' other villains like Stinky Pete from Toy Story 2 and Lotso from Toy Story 3 (despite being the most evil and depraved of the bunch) have charm to their actions.
- He constantly abuses toys just for his own gain.
- He is often mean to her sister by making her toys into scary experiments like switching their heads or performing operations on them.
- He also destroys toys in many ways (exploding, burning, or in his "mad doctor" plays).
- He is just a generic bratty and spoiled kid.
- His design is pretty ugly to look at, even by 1995 CGI standards.
- His voice by Erik von Detten is extremely annoying to listen to.
- Despite him being the main antagonist of the first film, he has literally no connection to Andy, another toy owner.
- Overall, he is the only unlikable character in an otherwise astonishing movie franchise.
- The comeuppance he gets for his actions at the end of the first film is extremely satisfying.
- He did get a tiny bit of redemption in the third film, although not by much considering it was just a cameo of him as a garbageman.
- Likewise, he is clearly meant to be hated for being a massive jerk to not only the toys but his sister.
- Although extremely annoying, Erik von Detten did a great job voicing him. He even reprised his role as the adult version of the character in the third film.
- John Lasseter and the rest of the Pixar team eventually learned from their mistakes and therefore started writing better villains for subsequent films since then beginning with Hopper from A Bug's Life three years later, except for a few exceptions.
- He has a very funny moments here and there such as the scene where he says, "I wanna ride the pony", in his sleep.
