Mind-Trip of the Week: The Andy’s Mom Theory


Welcome to the second ever installment of “mind-trip of the week,” brought to you by the guy responsible for the first installment. Yes, that’s right, you all remember the Grand Unified Pixar Thoery, right? Well, now the author is back with yet another bit of Pixar conspiracy theory, this time focusing on Andy’s mom from Toy Story.

It’s not quite as epic in scope as his last theory, but it’s one I find a lot more plausible: Andy’s Mom is the Emily who discarded Jesse years earlier.

The theory is mostly hat-based.

“As you can see, Andy’s hat is noticeably different from Woody’s. Why is this? Why wouldn’t Andy want to wear a hat that closely resembles the one worn by his favorite toy?”

The idea is that his hat is his mom’s hat, Jesse’s hat, which she had when she was a girl, and the theory expands from there. By the end, I’m convinced, and you really have to give the whole thing a read for yourself.

  1. I saw that yesterday and — be forewarned — I had to read it twice in order for all of it to make sense. I think that’s because I was honestly expecting a vastly bigger secret as part of the theory when it’s really just a teeny, tiny small notion.
