My Thoughts

 In Toy Story That Time Forgot, Bonnie goes to visit a friend who has some pretty high tech toys. While the two of them get wrapped up in video games, Woody, Buzz and the rest of the gang meet a crew of dinosaur action figures who don't know they're toys. After being taken prisoner, the gang must somehow prove to them that they aren't enemies.  Since Trixie the triceratops is one of them, she is the only one who might be able to get through to the delusional dinos. 

In addition to the feature show, there is also lots of bonus footage including a look at comic con and Reptillus Maximus doing a little karaoke. Even with this bonus footage, the DVD still has a very short run time and this is far from a full length movie. It's more like one episode of a series. Overall, this was still a decent DVD even though the run-time was short, but I do wish they had included some of the other Toy Story shorts I've seen on TV. That would have made it a much better value.
