The Big One
"Extremely dangerous. Keep out of reach of children... Cool!"
Sid reading the warning label

"The Big One" is a red rocket Sid Phillips ordered in the mail in Toy Story.

Toy Story

Sid straps Buzz Lightyear to the fireworks rocket and nearly has a chance to send him into orbit, but a rainstorm interrupts Sid's plan the first time. Then his toys, including the Mutant Toys, come to life and scare him to death the second time. After that, Woody and Buzz use the rocket to catch up to the moving truck. However, when "The Big One" shoots towards the sky, Woody thinks his plan to get to Andy will backfire, but Buzz opens his wings and separates himself from the rocket before it explodes into oblivion.

Toy Story 2

In Toy Story 2, Buzz mentions the rocket when he leads Rex, Hamm, Slinky Dog and Mr. Potato Head on a mission to rescue Woody from Al McWhiggin.


  • Woody says, "I'm the one who should be strapped to that rocket." In an earlier script, he was actually supposed to be strapped to the rocket.
  • The Big One makes a cameo in the Disney attraction Buzz Lightyear Astro Blasters.
  • In the Interactive Storybook version, after Woody and the Mutant Toys scare Sid, Buzz removes the rocket off His back.
