Jessie the Yodeling Cowgirl (better known simply as Jessie) is a major character in the Toy Story series, first appearing in Toy Story 2. She is a vintage pull string cowgirl toy from the 1950s and a former member of Woody's Roundup Gang. At first, Jessie only intends to be collectible and dislikes the fact that Woody has an owner, Andy, and a space toy friend, Buzz, but when the cowboy and space ranger rescue Jessie from the plane bound for Japan, she accepts her true purpose: to be played with.
Jessie is a friendly, excitable cowgirl doll. She likes being loved by any child and has the power to yodel. She hates being in storage ― as it makes her claustrophobic ― and not having someone to love her. A girl named Emily had once loved her until she gave her up and put her in a charity box, which emotionally scarred Jessie forever.
Like Woody, Jessie is a lanky cowgirl rag doll. She has red hair braided with a yellow bow, green eyes, and matching felt hat with white lace. Her outfits consist of a white long-sleeved western-style shirt with both yellow blouse and cuffs that have red doodles, blue jeans, a belt made from brown plastic with a buckle made from gold plastic, white chaps that have cow spots all over, cowgirl boots made from brown plastic, and a pull string on her back with a white loop attached to it.
In Toy Story 2, she is the second toy that Woody meets in Al McWhiggin's apartment after Bullseye and before Stinky Pete the Prospector. She is sassy, sweet, cute, athletic, and has a habit of yodeling when happy or excited. They reveal to Woody that he is a vintage Sheriff Woody collectible doll and the star of a forgotten children's TV show, Woody's Roundup. After watching an episode of when Woody has to save her and Pete being trapped in an abandoned mine & Pete accidentally lit a stick of dynamite thinking it was a candle, she turns it off, and Pete tells Woody that the show was canceled after the launch of Sputnik 1 led children to become more interested in Space Toys. When they revealed that they're going to the Konishi Toy Museum in Tokyo, Japan, Woody refuses to go since he still has an owner and has no intention of going there with the Roundup Gang. Jessie begins to hyperventilate for fear that she'll go back into storage again. She then begins to mock Woody for still having an owner. When Al went back to his apartment with his camera and placing the toys, Woody's arm was ripped when the string was caught.
That night, after Woody's attempt to retrieve his ripped-off arm is foiled when the TV suddenly turned on, causing Al to wake up and put Woody back in his case. Woody blames Jessie of turning on the TV, to which Jessie responds by fighting Woody. The Prospector breaks up the fight, and Jessie still feels bitter about Woody caring only about Andy. The next day, after Woody's arm, has been fixed, Jessie sarcastically lets Woody leave, but the Prospector convinces Woody to speak with Jessie to make amends. When Woody talks to Jessie, she tells him the story about Emily (seen during the "When She Loved Me" musical sequence), a little girl that had been her owner. Throughout her years as Emily's toy, Jessie has enjoyed being played with, such as being taken for a horseback riding, a drive in her car, and a swing on a tire. However, years have passed, and Emily has found more mature activities to do, forgetting about Jessie until finding her under the bed one day. Jessie had spent one more time in the car with Emily, only for Emily to place her in a charity box, leaving her shocked and heartbroken that she has been given away. Being in a box for a long period of time, Jessie has developed claustrophobia. After hearing that story, she said that "you never forget kids like Emily and Andy, but they forget you". Woody felt sorry for Jessie, but she tells him to go, but with more of the Prospector's convincing, Woody, thinking that the same fate will happen to him as Andy grows up, warms up to the idea of going to the museum, and Jessie's feelings of bitterness and sadness brightens up to happiness and excitement. Later that day, they have a little fun by making a show with Woody, who accidentally falls off Bullseye, then Jessie tries to help, but soon tickles him after he stated that he is ticklish.
Woody's friends, Buzz, Potato Head, Slinky Dog, and Hamm, burst through the air vent using Rex's head. Slink ties Jessie & Bullseye so they can escape with Woody, but they were stopped by Andy's Buzz, which the other one was a Utility Belt Buzz from Al's Toy Barn. Woody refuses to go back to Andy & his friends left. But after watching a video of him singing "You Got a Friend in Me" on the TV, Woody decides to go back to Andy so he wouldn't miss him growing up, but not until offering to take the Roundup gang with him back to Andy's house after having a change of heart and deciding to go back to Andy's room with Buzz and the other toys. Jessie initially feels uncertain, but Stinky Pete, now showing his true colors, locks them in Al's apartment. He even turned off the TV revealing that last night, he turned it on and framed Jessie. Woody and Jessie try to stand up to the Prospector, but they learn that the Prospector has never been sold from a dime store shelf, which makes him feel more determined to get himself and the others to Japan, where he believes he will finally be appreciated. Al started to come & Jessie, Bullseye & Woody were packed up to be taken with Al to the airport.
At the airport, Buzz and the toys save Woody and get rid of the evil Prospector, but are unable to free Jessie from the case, despite Bullseye being able to escape, as the case gets loaded into a plane bound for Japan. Woody whistles for Bullseye, whom he and Buzz mount and gallop across the airfield to rescue Jessie.
Woody, after being separated from Buzz again, follows the case into the plane's cargo hold. There, Woody again offers to take Jessie back to Andy's house. She initially fears that Andy will not like her, but Woody tells her that it will not be so bad because Andy has a little sister. Excited, she agrees to go with Woody, and the other toys, but the doors close and get trapped in the plane. Finding another escape route, they exit the plane. But Woody slips, prompting Jessie to grab hold of Woody's arm. Using his pull-string, Woody and Jessie swing down from the plane and land on Bullseye right behind Buzz, finally completing the mission just seconds before the plane takes off. As they celebrate their success, Jessie describes Woody rescuing her as "Woody's finest hour".
Back at Andy's room, when Andy comes home from Cowboy Camp, he is pleased to see Jessie and Bullseye added into his toy collection, calling them Bazooka Jane and her jet-propelled horse. With Andy's name printed on the bottom of her boot, Jessie is overjoyed to feel appreciated again. Buzz clearly, but nervously, develops a crush on her and the two enter a relationship somewhat similar to the way Woody and Bo Peep have done before Jessie shows off as she uses the Hot Wheels car and track to reach the doorknob to open it and let Buster out to use the bathroom. The two couples are seen standing together as they enjoy watching a newly-fixed Wheezy sing "You've Got a Friend in Me".
In Toy Story 3, she is first shown in an opening sequence taking place in the Wild West. When Woody is knocked off the train by bandits One-Eyed Bart and Betty (Mr. and Mrs. Potato Head's characters, respectively), Woody is seen riding on Bullseye behind Jessie as they chase after the train. After Bart explodes a railroad bridge and escapes with One-Eyed Betty and their stolen loot on a Corvette that the Aliens are driving, Jessie and Woody rush over to stop the train to save the orphans aboard. Woody jumps into the locomotive and pulls on the brakes, but the train goes off the bridge and into a ravine, leaving Jessie to assume that Woody has died, along with the orphans. But then, to Jessie's surprise, the train shoots out of the ravine, lifted up by Buzz. Woody, Buzz, and Jessie then attempt to stop the criminals, but they are interrupted by a spaceship controlled by Evil Dr. Porkchop (Hamm's character), who warps the criminals back into the spaceship and executes Death by Monkeys to capture the three heroes. As One-Eyed Bart prepares to finish them off, the scene cuts to Andy's room, revealing that the sequence has actually taken place in Andy's imagination.
During the main events of the film, Jessie continues to have fond affections toward Buzz. When Andy attempts to put her and the other toys in the attic, she and the others do not realize that his mom accidentally threw them out and refused to listen to Woody. To keep herself from reliving the trauma life she had when thrown out by Emily, she convinces the other toys to go to Sunnyside Daycare.
She is excited to learn that the children at Sunnyside are replaced with new children when they get older, meaning that they will always be played with no matter what. She tries to convince Woody into staying, but he turns down the offer and calls her 'selfish', leaving to go back to Andy alone. This hurts Jessie. After recess ends, she and the other toys realize that they have been put in a room where the children that, roughly but innocently, abuse them and are too young to even handle them. Later, after Buzz disappears to talk to Lotso, Mrs. Potato Head sees Andy with the eye that she left in Andy's room. Jessie and the other toys realize that Woody was right, that Andy still wanted them. They decide to return home to Andy but are imprisoned by Lotso, who had Buzz reprogrammed and think that he is a space ranger again, turning him against them. Buzz sets down the prison standards, and in order to make sure they obey them, Lotso gives them Woody's hat (which he left behind). This causes Jessie and the others to believe Lotso killed Woody.
The next morning, Jessie and Bullseye are the ones who have been mourning Woody's apparent "death". Jessie also appeared to be mourning greatly as she felt her decisions had cost both Buzz and Woody. When Woody returns to rescue them, after hearing a sad story about Sunnyside and Lotso by one of Bonnie's toys named Chuckles, Jessie and the others are super happy to see that he's still alive and give him his hat. Jessie apologizes for not listening and Woody apologizes for leaving. They make a plan to escape and Jessie is soon reunited with Buzz, who had been reset to the Spanish mode of his space ranger self; a romantic version of Buzz who is far more outspoken about his feelings for Jessie, the reset had temporarily erased his memories. At first, she is uncomfortable with the change but finds that she also rather likes this romantic version, too.
When they get stuck in a garbage truck, Buzz saves Jessie but is soon flattened by a television. Thinking that he is dead, she starts to despair but Buzz reawakens to his normal self, not remembering a thing that happened prior to being set to Demo mode and Spanish mode. They soon fall into a landfill and end up falling down an incinerator. As they accept their fate of doom, they are saved by the squeeze-toy aliens, who had run off to the "claw", with the giant "Claw".
They all return to Andy's house and with Woody's intervention, are donated to Bonnie, the girl that found Woody outside of Sunnyside. Jessie and the others are all played with by Andy one last time and quickly adjusts to her new life with Bonnie. Towards the very end, she takes advantage of Buzz's new Spanish side and they dance together to "Hay Un Amigo En Mi" (the Spanish version of "You've Got a Friend in Me").
Jessie returns in the fourth film. In a flashback set nine years prior to the third and fourth film, Jessie and Bullseye watch through Andy's window on his desk as a storm approaches when thunder and a streak of lightning strike down, startling the cowgirl and scaring her horse. Jessie says that it's raining cats and dogs outside, and hopes that Andy and the gang made it back inside alright as she comforts Bullseye. Just then, Hamm yells from the floor that Andy's coming, causing them to go limp. A drenched Andy comes in with the rest of the gang in his arms and drops them onto his bed. His mother calls him for dinner and proceeds to go downstairs. Woody and the gang soon spring up in a panic since Andy accidentally left RC out in the storm. Jessie helps Woody up to the desk and they look through the window to see the racecar but to no avail. Woody then assigns Buzz, Jessie, and Slinky to follow him to Molly's room while the rest of the gang stays put. After crossing the hallway and avoiding being seen by Molly, Woody ushers the others that the coast is clear as he climbs onto Molly's nightstand to talk to Bo and her sheep, Billy, Goat, and Gruff. As her sheep raise the blinds to window, the others look through and Jessie asks where is RC. A streak of lightning reveals the car trapped in the storm drain. Woody and Bo decide to perform "Operation Pull Toy": After making a makeshift seesaw with a book and Molly's rainbow armadillo toy, Jessie stands on one side while the trio of Barbies charge towards them and lands on the other side of the book, catapulting Jessie to the top of the window to unlock it. As she drops down, Woody, Buzz, and Bo lift up the window. Bo asks for the flashlight, to which Jessie turns it on and shines it onto the struggling RC. Woody proceeds to grab Slinky and climb down to reach RC. However, Slinky is nearly pulled to his limit and not even using Woody's pull-string as an extra rope can reach the racecar. But Bo thankfully uses the Barrel of Monkeys in time and Woody finally pulls RC out of the drain. Just then, a car approaches into the Davis' driveway as the trio is pulled back by the others and a mysterious man runs into the house. As RC is pulled in from the storm, the light turns on and the toys all collapse. Woody climbs up Slinky's coils to see what's going on, but Mrs. Davis shuts the window before he can get in, leaving the cowboy and half of Slinky outside. Woody then watches in horror as Bo, her sheep, and the lamp they are attached to are put in a box for the mysterious man to buy, since Molly doesn't want it anymore. As they leave, Jessie and Buzz spring up and lift the window up to bring in Slinky, only to find Woody gone. It can be assumed Jessie and the others were saddened from Bo's departure. She is then seen throughout the You've Got a Friend in Me sequence, being played with by Andy, being donated to Bonnie, and being played with by Bonnie.
Nine years later and two years after the third film, Jessie now lives with the rest of the toys with Bonnie being their new owner. She first appears with the rest of the gang waiting in the closet for Bonnie to finish breakfast. She is seen sitting on Bullseye as Woody reminds her to do her breathing exercises for her anxiety. She, along with many of the other toys, is played with more prominently than Woody, who Bonnie neglects. When she is pulling out toys from her closet to play "town", she picks up Woody, only to take his sheriff pin off of him and throw him back into the closet. Woody watches in disappointment as Bonnie plays with "Sheriff" Jessie and Bullseye and pins his sheriff pin on her instead. As she plays "Hat Shop", Bonnie's father comes into her room and tells Bonnie that she needs to get ready for her kindergarten orientation, much to her disdain. She asks her father is she can bring a toy (namely Jessie) with her, but Mr. Anderson says toys don't go school. After they leave the room, the toys begin to stand up when Dolly tells everyone to freeze, as Bonnie always forgets something and could be back any second. Woody comes out of the closet, where Buzz comforts Woody for not being picked while Jessie immediately gives back his badge. While Woody appreciates the sympathy and claims that he's fine, Jessie and Buzz give each other worried looks.
Much to the toy's disagreement, Woody sneaks into Bonnie's backpack to make sure her day goes well after seeing Bonnie hide and cry under her bed, where she creates a literal "new friend" that she names Forky, created out of trash Woody fetched out from the garbage. When Bonnie returns home and drops off her backpack in her room, Woody climbs out and is scolded by the gang, with Jessie saying that he could've been lost. But Woody alleviates the situation by saying not only did Bonnie have a great day in class and they're going on a road trip (to which she hugs Bullseye in excitement), she also made Forky. Like the rest of the gang, Jessie is both confused and shocked by not only Forky's existence but also his love of trash. While Woody states that everyone has to make sure nothing happens to Forky for now on, Jessie interrupts him and says something has already happened to him. Woody turns around to find Forky throwing himself into Bonnie's wastebasket. As Woody fishes him out, he states he'll keep an eye on him during the road trip before all of them collapse as Bonnie enters the room to play with Forky, and Woody proceeds to throw the spork back onto her bed throughout the night after repeatedly throwing himself out.
She is then seen silently throughout the "I Can't Let You Throw Yourself Away" sequence as Woody constantly keeps Forky from throwing himself out. During one night, however, Forky sneaks out of Bonnie's hands while she and everyone else is asleep and jumps out the window of the RV, claiming that he is not a toy. Woody tells the gang that he is going after him and that they will meet them at the carnival the RV is heading to, much to the toy's shock.
The next morning, the toys look for Woody from the R.V. window while Jessie and Buzz watch a sleeping Bonnie hold a regular spoon the toys slipped into her hand as a substitute for Forky. Jessie says that maybe they should have gone with a fork, but Buzz insists that the spoon is safer. The spoon works to no avail, as Bonnie is distraught she has lost her favorite toy. Buzz volunteers to go after him, after listening to his "inner voice" (AKA, his voice box) while Jessie and the gang watch out for Bonnie.
Later, the Andersons go outside one more time to look for Forky but Mr. Anderson says they must leave after they're done. As they leave, Jessie and Dolly spring up and alert the gang they're about to leave. Jessie says they have to stop them, but the gang struggles to come up with a plan. Jessie then runs and jumps out the window, causing Rex to yell for her. Jessie lands on the ground and quickly runs under the RV. As she looks around, she has an idea and runs for one of the tires. Bonnie's parents begin to tell Bonnie they have to leave when they hear hissing coming from a tire. The toys look out the window to see what's going on only to find Jessie back with a nail and a coy smile on her face. Dolly asks what did she do, to which Jessie replies (with the nail), "We're not going anywhere if you get point!", much to the group's happiness.
That evening, Mr. Anderson fixes the flat tire, with the trio still out there. Jessie is looking out the window, wondering where Woody is, when Buzz returns to the RV. As she helps him in, Buzz tells the gang about his plan to get Woody and Forky back to the RV. After getting Bonnie to realize she left her backpack at the Antique Store, she and Mrs. Anderson go back there with Forky inside. When Forky returns and tells about a meeting spot that Woody picked at the carnival, Jessie comes up with another plan to get the RV to the carnival so Woody can join back up with them. The group has Buzz on top of the RV with Mrs. Potato Head's ear so he can tell her where to go. She then tells Trixie, who pretends to be the GPS and tells Mr. Anderson where to go. Meanwhile, Buttercup hides under the gas pedals and pulls the gas in order for the RV to go faster. After successfully getting back to the carnival (with police cars chasing the RV), the gang stacks themselves up to open up the awning.
While Forky locks the family out of the RV after dealing with the police chasing them, the rest climb on top of the RV where Jessie and the older toys notice a familiar toy with Woody. Coming closer towards them, Jessie realizes that it´s her old friend Bo Peep with Woody where they happily embrace. Woody, who now realizes that Bonnie will be okay without him and decides to be with Bo Peep to help other lost toys, gives Jessie his badge as a memento, a special parting-present and as a sign of leadership. Jessie then picks him up and hugs him tight while the rest of the gang join in a group hug. Forky comes up to the roof to say goodbye as well but leaves the doors unlocked. The RV begins to drive off, and the groups split up. Bonnie's toys then watch through the window as Woody and Bo wave goodbye. Rex asks out loud if this means that Woody is a lost toy. Buzz then replies that he's not lost anymore, with Jessie putting her hand on his back.
In a post-credit scene set a year later, Jessie (now Bonnie's new favorite toy and the new leader of the gang) returns from Bonnie's first day of first grade with another surprise: Bonnie made another friend named Knifey, a female toy made from a plastic knife and suffers the exact problem as Forky, much to the spork's happiness.
Jessie returns in the special as the protagonist. During a road trip, she is reminded of her traumatizing years in storage after she gets trapped in a small toolbox. They stay in a motel for the night with the Andersons. When her friends are stolen by the motel's owner along with some other toys, it's up to her to save them from being shipped to a toy collector and to do that, she must face her claustrophobia.
Jessie appears in Disney INFINITY as a playable character. She is part of the Toy Story in Space Play Set along with Buzz.
Woody and Jessie share a sibling-like relationship. Since meeting each other in Al's penthouse, the two share a close bond. The two are shown to have pretty heated arguments from time to time, but they deeply care for each other nonetheless.
Both Bullseye and Jessie bonded when they were in storage for an unknown number of years. Since then, the two have been inseparable.
Jessie's romantic feeling towards the space ranger has been heavily teased throughout the franchise. In Toy Story 2, Buzz walks up to Jessie on the bed as he struggles to compliment her yarn hair (by calling it a yarnful of hair). Flustered, he says that he must go, but Jessie grabs him and squeezes him tightly, calling him "the sweetest space toy she's ever met." Just then, the two overhear Buster whining towards the door and Slinky yells that Buster needs to leave for some "private time". Jessie, seeing an animal in need of help, runs over to Andy's nightstand, grabs a racecar, goes through the racetrack's loop, flies towards the doorknob, and lets Buster out. A shocked and impressed Buzz stares as his wings pop out. She is then seen leaning on Buzz as they listen to Wheezy's rendition of You've Got a Friend in Me. Their relationship is explored further in Toy Story 3. It's first seen when the gang begins to plan one final attempt at getting Andy to play with them in the toy chest. Jessie crawls towards Buzz and asks if he would mind her squeezing next to him, to which Buzz stutters that he wouldn't mind and then asks if it's hot in here, much to her enjoyment. After Sarge and his men acquire Andy's phone, Woody tells Buzz and Jessie to make the call. As Jessie uses Buzz's wrist communicator (which has Andy's phone number written in it), Buzz chuckles nervously. While the film progress, Jessie becomes attracted to Buzz because of his Spanish mode. After Lotso leaves the toys to die, Buzz grabs Jessie's hand. After the aliens save them, Buzz is still holding Jessie's hand. At the end of Toy Story 3, the two finally seal their relationship, with Jessie taking the initiative for the two to dance an exciting pasodoble.
Bo Peep and Jessie are seen briefly together along with Woody and Buzz as the two couple listens from Andy's desk to Wheezy sing You've Got a Friend in Me. When Toy Story 2 came out, interviews with the various characters were posted on the official movie site. In one interview with Bo Peep, she was asked, "Are you worried about Woody's relationship with Jessie?" She replies: "There is nothing to worry about; me and Jessie are good friends. Woody and Jessie act like brother and sister more than anything else. Now it's not Woody, but a certain space toy who is head over heels for Jessie, but you didn't hear that from me."
Their relationship was explored slightly in the fourth film. After her departure, it can be assumed she was saddened by her departure. At the end of the film, Buzz leads Jessie by hand along with the other toys on the RV awning as they walk towards Woody and Bo. She is both shocked and happy to see her again. As they both say each other's names, they happily embrace, and later say goodbye.
Jessie and Stinky Pete used to be good friends since they were in Woody's roundup gang. When Woody wanted to bring Jessie and Bullseye to Andy Stinky Pete stopped them. Stinky Pete betrayed them since he wanted to go to Japan.
Jessie hates Lotso. Lotso took control of her friend Buzz and made him turn against her. Jessie thinks that Lotso is a liar and bully.
- Due to being in storage for so long, Jessie suffers from claustrophobia throughout the series. The slightest thought of being put in storage causes her to hyperventilate. Though she overcomes this fear in Toy Story of Terror, she is shown doing breathing exercises in the fourth film while in Bonnie's closet.
- Given that other toys were not seen in Jessie's flashback beyond a small collection of realistic horses, it is implied that she was Emily's only toy, which is possibly another reason for her fears.
- Unlike Woody, Jessie's pull-string is never heard nor pulled throughout the series. It could be possible it's either broken or the batteries for it have died (though all Jessie dolls in real life have operable pull-strings).
- When Jessie first meets Woody, she exclaims, "Sweet mother of Abraham Lincoln!" Abraham Lincoln's mother was Nancy Hanks, a blood relative of Tom Hanks. Tom Hanks is a direct descendant of an uncle of Nancy Hanks.
- When Jessie fights Woody after he accuses her of turning on the TV, Jessie's position (pinning Woody on the ground, foot on his back, pulling his arms back) is the same as Buzz's when he fights Woody underneath Andy's car at the gas station in Toy Story.
- John Lasseter's wife Nancy suggested that in Toy Story 2 that there should be a strong female character, which soon led to the creation of Jessie. She was originally going to be a cactus called Señorita Cactus, but it was decided later on that she would be a cowgirl.
- Jessie's cameo in Monsters, Inc. later influenced the Monsters, Inc. comic mini-series Laugh Factory, where Boo's Jessie doll is prominently featured in the third installment, "Toy Worry". In that story, Sid, using the monsters' door-traveling technology, steals Jessie from Boo while she isn't looking, as he is trying to "save" other kids from being terrorized by living toys like he was. After Mike and Sulley return Boo's Jessie doll to her at the end, they scoff at the idea of toys coming to life, but Boo's Jessie doll gives a knowing wink to the reader.
- Jessie is the only female toy in Andy's room who solely belongs to Andy, while the other female toys, such as Bo Peep, her sheep, Mrs. Potato Head, and Barbie belong to Molly.
- With Woody confirming to Gabby Gabby that he was made in the late 1950s, it is possible that Jessie (along with Bullseye and the Prospector) is approximately 60+ years old.
- Even though he is Woody's horse, Bullseye is more attached to Jessie. Whenever Bullseye is around, she usually has an arm around him. Other times during dramatic situations, he hides behind her, or Jessie holds him close.
- Jessie was honored with the Patsy Montana Entertainer Award from the National Cowgirl Museum and Hall of Fame.
- Buzz and Jessie's dance moves during the end credits of Toy Story 3 are choreographed by Tony Dovolani and Cheryl Burke of Dancing with the Stars.
- In Toy Story 2, Andy names Jessie "Bazooka Jane". But in Toy Story 3, when Andy introduces Bonnie to her, he calls her by her real name. It is unknown how Andy learned her real name, but it is possible that he found out about Woody's Roundup and learned her name. It is also possible that like real Jessie dolls, one of her pull string quotes does include her saying her name.
- Another thing which makes it possible Andy heard about Woody's Roundup is the fact in the show she can summon animals by yodeling, which she does when Andy plays with her at the beginning of Toy Story 3.
- In Toy Story 4, Jessie appears to be Bonnie's favorite toy, as she is shown frequently playing with her throughout the movie, wanting to bring her to kindergarten orientation (and eventually would bring her to first-grade orientation), and even puts Woody's sheriff badge on her during playtime. It can also possibly hinted during the third film and TV special. In Toy Story 3, when Andy is giving away the toys to Bonnie, Jessie is the first to be given to her. As she is handed to her, Bonnie fixes her crooked hat and touches her face, smiling. In Toy Story of Terror!, after Jessie exposes Ron the hotel manager as a toy thief, Bonnie appears to be especially happy getting Jessie back, putting her hat back on and hugging her close.
- Even though Bo Peep is Woody's love interest, many confuse Jessie to be Woody's girlfriend. So much so that there are couples costumes of Woody and Jessie that couples wear.
- There have been numerous books (including the recent Woody's Augmented Reality Adventure book) that say Woody and Jessie are siblings, which explains their sibling-like relationship.
