One of the rejected ideas for Circle 7's version of the film was a script by Teacher's Pet screenwriters Bill and Cheri Steinkellner. This version involved Woody, Buzz and the rest of the gang being sent to Andy's grandmother's house for the night, due to Andy's room getting remodeled. Woody, Buzz, and new characters Hee-Hee, and Gladiola try to find out who stole the other toys in a whodunit-style mystery. Though it was rejected, Disney was so impressed with the script that this version would have been considered for a possible fourth installment. This version of the script was eventually uploaded in September 2019. The final version of the script was written by Meet the Parents screenwriter Jim Herzfeld. It focused on Andy's Mom shipping a malfunctioning Buzz to Taiwan, where he was built, with the other toys believing he will be fixed there. While searching on the Internet, the other toys find out that many more Buzz Lightyear toys are malfunctioning around the world and the company has issued a massive recall. Fearing Buzz's destruction, a group of Andy's toys (Woody, Rex, Slinky, Mr. Potato Head, Hamm, Jessie, and Bullseye) all ship themselves to Taiwan and venture out to rescue Buzz. At the same time, Buzz meets other toys from around the world that were once loved, but have now been recalled.
