Trivia

  • Toy Story 2 and Toy Story 4 are the only films in the Toy Story series to be promoted by McDonald's during its theatrical release. The original Toy Story was promoted by Burger King while Toy Story 3 wasn't promoted by a restaurant. However, McDonald's did promote the original Toy Story in some countries (particularly Europe and Asia) outside of the United States and Latin America.
  • The Cars movie toys have variations, as there are clean and dirty versions of Lightning McQueen, and green, purple, and yellow versions of Ramone.
  • The Cars character Fillmore was originally planned to be called "Waldmire", named after Bob Waldmire, a Route 66 resident whom the crew befriended during a road trip to do research for the film. However, Waldmire was an ethical vegetarian, and since Fillmore toys would be featured in Happy Meals, he did not want his name to be used.[1]
  • Toy Story (inside the United States), Ratatouille to Coco are the only Pixar films so far not to be promoted by McDonald's, although again, the original Toy Story was promoted by McDonald's outside of the United States and Latin America.
  • The Finding Nemo commercial in the UK was the first McDonald's advertisment to use the "I'm lovin' it" slogan, which is still been used to promote the restaurant chain in other advertisments to this day.
