Entertainment Tonight took a look back at the Toy Story franchise. Since Toy Story 4 is the number one movie at the box office (as expected), it really is fun to look back through all the years the actors have stepped up to a mic to become the beloved characters.. The first Toy Story by Pixar came out over 24 years ago! ET has been with the stars of 'Toy Story' since the beginning. Pixar was a new studio back then that no one had heard of. Tom Hanks tries to explain the first Toy Story movie isn't really a "cartoon."
