PHOTOS: ‘Toy Story 2’ Woody’s Roundup Marionettes Arrive at Walt Disney World

Fans of the “Toy Story” series might remember the origins of Woody and Jessie as characters on a classic 1950s-era show “Woody’s Roundup,” where they were played by marionettes. Now if you want to recreate those fun and kooky scenes, you can pick up a set of Woody, Jessie, and Bullseye marionettes at Walt Disney World! We found these at the Beverly Sunset Shop at Disney’s Hollywood Studios.

Bullseye stars in his own show here, kept in a TV-like box.

The marionette has strings attached to the four legs. The marionette itself is made of fabric and canvas, and is in black and white to keep in theme with the fictional TV show. In this scene, we see Bullseye sitting outside the town schoolhouse, which Woody and Bullseye built together in the final episode of “Woody’s Roundup.”

The back side of each box resembles a 1950s-era black-and-white TV, with a protruding black piece which holds the cathode-ray tube, and the vents next to it.

Just like Bullseye, Woody is housed in a faux 1950s TV-looking box. His face along with the other show characters are on the screen, which is in black and white. Fake channel and volume dials are below and the brand reads “Budtone.”

He’s also made of canvas and fabric, with a plastic face and hands. Strings control his arms and legs.

His face is ever so slightly unsettling. Just like Bullseye, the puppet is rendered in black and white.
