After the success of Cars Toons, Pixar knew it had a method for keeping the Toy Story franchise alive: shorts. Buzz, Woody, and the rest of the gang are some of the most well-known characters in film today and have become an important part of pop culture. On top of that, the toys have become beloved characters to the generation that grew up with the franchise as well as to the new generation of children today. It is not hard to see why Pixar did not want to let go of these characters. Called Toy Story Toons, the first one will make its debut with Cars 2 next month, followed closely be a second, which will accompany The Muppets in November. We have a hi-res image of the Toy Story Toons logo, which you can check out here!
With shorts being the new medium for the Toy Story franchise, this will be a logo that we will likely see often in the future. The first Toy Story Toon, Hawaiian Vacation, will accompany Cars 2 when it hits theaters on June 24!
