Original Toy Story trailer advision
Although this is on Barney's Nightmare Before Christmas, this was never distributed because it was deemed "too dark" for kids (it's more like a Batman (1989) style movie trailer). The trailer was replaced with the initial teaser trailer (which can be found on the VHS and DVD prints of A Chipmunk Christmas). Even though this wasn't on the 2000 VHS and DVD of A Chipmunk Christmas, this was included as a DVD bonus feature on Toy Story.


  • (White words on a black background: "You are about to watch a rarely-seen trailer for Toy Story that was deemed too scary for kids, but don't worry, it's still VeggieTales! It's just a little on the dark side.", with the red caption "WARNING:" flashing. In parentheses, below the text reads: "And the masterminds behind VeggieTales do not advocate the pre-teen use of plutonium.")

    Original advision
    • The announcer states that it is premiering on home video and DVD the day before the 9/11 attacks.
  • The music at the beginning of the trailer is the beginning music of Funiculi, Funicula, even though that song's not in the actual video (Despite it not having a total of 8 songs, it messes up the continuity).
