Sheriff Woodrow Pride (also known as Sheriff Woody or simply Woody) is one of the main characters of the Toy Story franchise. He is the protagonist of the movies and a supporting character in the Toy Story Treats, the Toy Story Toons shorts, and the two TV specials Toy Story of Terror!, and Toy Story That Time Forgot.
He is a pull-string cowboy doll based on a character of the same name from a 1950s children's television series called Woody's Roundup. He was once the favorite toy of a boy named Andy Davis until Andy grew up and gave him to a little girl named Bonnie Anderson. He is the leader of Andy's toys and later Bonnie's toys. In each film, Woody leaves Andy's room (where he and the other toys live) and ventures out into the world on an unexpected adventure.
