    Sidney "Sid" Phillips is the main antagonist of the 1995 Disney/Pixar animated film Toy Story, a mentioned character in Toy Story 2, and a minor character in Toy Story 3. He was Andy's troubled next door neighbor. Unlike his neighbor, he did extremely horrid things to his toys instead of treating them with love and care, until he learned to his horror that the toys were really alive, which gave him such a fright that he vowed to change his ways. He is voiced by Erik von Detten.

    Why He's Intentionally "No Happy Child"

    1. 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.
    2. He constantly destroys toys just for the fun of it, as Rex explained to Buzz, and then collects all the pieces and makes them into creepy combinations.
    3. He is often mean to his younger sister, Hannah, by taking her toys and make them into scary hodgepodges, like changing their heads or performing “operations” on them.
    4. He also destroys toys in many ways (exploding, burning, or in his so-called "mad doctor" plays).
    5. He is just a generic bratty and spoiled kid.
    6. Like all the humans in the film, his design is pretty hideous to look at (especially his mouth), even by Pixar standards.
    7. While his voice is decent, it gets extremely annoying to listen to.
    8. Despite him being the main antagonist of the first film, he has literally no connection to Andy, another toy owner.
    9. We learn nothing about where his behavior comes from at all.
    10. Overall, he is the only unlikable character in an otherwise astonishing movie franchise.
    11. He is also no better in the Monsters Inc. comic book series, when Sid tried to get away from the monsters while helping Randall and Mr. Waternoose take over Monsters Inc. while continuing their plan to kidnap children and tried to kidnap Boo, the little girl that the protagonists, Sulley and Mike were taking care of from the film.

    Redeeming Qualities

    1. Despite him being a rather weak Toy Story antagonist, he actually is surprisingly an effective and threatening antagonist to Woody, Buzz and the other toys in Toy Story, so much that it outright terrifies them, especially Rex the Dinosaur.
    2. He did get somewhat 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.
    3. Despite the flaws, 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.
    4. He has very funny moments here and there, such as the scene where he says, "I wanna ride the pony!", in his sleep.
      • The comeuppance he gets for his actions at the end of the first film is extremely satisfying and can be seen as hilarious.
    5. 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.
    6. The first movie wouldn't be the same without him.

    Trivia

    • There is a possibility that he could return in Toy Story 5. Similarly, Andy Davis is rumored to return as an adult with kids.
