Mrs. Potato Head is the female counterpart to Mr. Potato Head. Although only mentioned at the end of Toy Story as Molly's Christmas present, she makes her first real appearance in Toy Story 2 as Mr. Potato Head's wife. She makes her last appearance in Toy Story 3, where she is given to Bonnie by Andy.

Toy Story

Sarge: "Molly's first present is...Mrs. Potato Head, repeat, a Mrs. Potato Head!"
Hamm: "Way to go, Idaho!"
Mr. Potato Head: "Gee, I'd better shave (removes his mustache)"
Sarge, announcing the arrival of Mrs. Potato Head

She is mentioned by Mr. Potato Head by chanting her name for a birthday present for Andy. At the end of the film she is finally confirmed to be a toy for Molly by the Green Army Men, making Mr. Potato Head happy.

Toy Story 2

Mr. Potato Head: "The missus lost her earring. (calls to his wife) Oh, my little sweet potato!"
Mrs. Potato Head: "Oh, you found it! Oh, it's so nice to have a big, strong spud around the house."
—Mr. Potato Head finds his wife's lost earring

In the second film, Mrs. Potato Head is first seen when her male counterpart and husband finds her lost earring. When Buzz Lightyear plans a rescue mission to bring Woody back home, Mrs. Potato Head loads her husband with an extra pair of shoes and his angry eyes. After learning that her husband saved the lives of three Squeeze Toy Aliens during the mission, she decides to adopt them, much to his dismay. Finally, she and Mr. Potato Head are seen standing together as they watch Wheezy sing You've Got a Friend in Me.

In the outtakes Mrs. Potato Head overloads her husband with several unnecessary accessories listed below:

Toy Story 3

She is seen with a much bigger part as this time she loses her eye and uses it for seeing inside Andy's room, which is how the toys discover that Andy is searching for them or if Andy is leaving or packing. In the process, she helps the other toys realize that Woody has been truthful about Andy after they have initially refused to listen to him. She recovers her eye after the toys return to Andy's house. She is then given to Bonnie along with Mr. Potato Head and the other toys. In the film's credits, she and her husband are seen shaking hands with Chuckles.


  • The storybook Mrs. Potato Head is reading to the Little Tikes in Toy Story 2 is titled A Bug's Life. The picture seen in the book is at the point of the film where the two kids next to Dot say "Your dad's right, he's gonna die." shortly after Flik leaves for Bug City.
  • Despite telling the rescuing group, "Don't talk to any toy you don't know!" in Toy Story 2, they ignore this and talk to some they don't know.
  • It is possible Molly took no interest in Mrs. Potato Head, which is why she has always been seen in Andy's room and why Andy is very sentimental with her as much as Mr. Potato Head.
  • It was mentioned that Mrs. Potato Head came with over 30 accessories.
