When Andy goes on summer camp, leaving his toys behind to fend for themselves, Woody discovers that he is a valuable collectible from the 1950s kiddie-puppet TV show, 'Woody's Roundup Gang'. Only, he is quickly kidnapped by an evil toy collector, Al McWhiggin, who plans to sell him to a Japanese toy museum. However, Woody finds himself reunited with the toy versions of his TV cohorts plucky cowgirl Jessie, prospector Stinky Pete, and trusty horse Bullseye. The choice between seeing Andy grow up or living a sterile but eternal life behind glass being admired but not played with, is tricky. But in the meantime, the rest of the toy troupe is on a crosstown adventure to locate Woody and restore him his rightful owner.
