Toy Story 2 (partially found Bullseye dialogue footage from Pixar animated film; late 1990s)
Toy Story 2 is a 1999 animated sequel by Pixar Animation Studios and distributed by Walt Disney Pictures that follows the story of 1995's Toy Story. Despite having troubles throughout the production of the movie, it was a critical and box office success that earned $497.4 million worldwide.
One of the new characters introduced is Bullseye, a member of the Woody's Roundup toy line that was apart of Al's collection and locked away in storage for multiple years. Originally, the character was going to speak with full dialogue voiced by Martin Short. The film's director, John Lasseter, decided to scrap the idea so that the character could be more appealing to the audience. Thus turning the character into a mute character who acted more like a dog than a horse.
The idea of having Bullseye speak lasted for quite a long time in the production, with full dialogue being in early drafts of the script.The animation team even did some rough animation tests to show how it would have worked. There's also some early concept art and storyboards that look like it might be from the version of the movie with his dialogue. It is currently unknown if there were any completed scenes with Bullseye's dialogue or if Martin Short even recorded any of his lines before the idea was scrapped.
