Buzz Lightyear is an uncomplicated guy who just wants to save the world. Woody on the other hand is a little selfish and gets very jealous and angry.
If you look at a Buzz Lightyear costume you realize that it is so technical that Buzz must be having a hectic time just keeping up with his very advanced functions.
Buzz Lightyear is Modern
Buzz Lightyear was named after Buzz Aldrin, the second man on the moon and a member of the Apollo 11 mission. His Buzz Lightyear costume is based on the astronaut suit of Buzz Aldrin.
Buzz is quite modern in his looks and in his thinking. He seeks justice and will go anywhere to complete his mission.
He frequently shouts his slogan ‘to Infinity and beyond’ which has inspired many people in real life. He is a little muddled which really does not give him time for the philosophical nit picking that Woody does.
Woody Needs Anger Management
Woody is a typical male who is perpetually paranoid. He is very insecure and uncertain about his personal life. He is constantly worrying about the actions of Andy his master.
Woody is the kind of person who would give someone else a nervous breakdown because of his constant fretting. Woody really gets red faced when someone contradicts him. He is too opinionated. He is definitely not a cool guy to live with.
Someone would have to love him a lot to tolerate his tantrums. Woody is also very old fashioned.
He is really a family heirloom. Perhaps fifty five years old at least because he is modeled on the Woody of a 1950s TV show named ‘Woody’s Roundup.’ His costume cannot even come close in smartness to the Buzz Lighthouse costume.
Woody is a Puppet, Buzz Lighthouse is Battery Powered
Woody is really an old fashioned toy with only a few phrases like, “reach for the sky” and “there’s a snake in my boots!” These voice messages are uttered only if a string is pulled.
On the other hand the toy wearing the Buzz Lightyear costume is battery operated. It now has a hundred phrases that he can say at the push of a button. He can also speak in Spanish. You can never feel lonely with Buzz Lightyear because he has so many things to say. Woody on the other hand is moody. He can be a glum companion.
It is obvious that the inner man in a Buzz Lightyear costume is very cool, while a Sheriff Woody has thoughts which are as tangled and hot as a plateful of noodles. Buzz Lightyear gets eighty percent of the votes in coolness.
