Appearances

Toy Story 4

Melephant Brooks is first seen in the beginning of the film, alongside all of Bonnie's other toys, with Dolly comforting them, that whenever Mrs. Anderson comes to clean the room, they are put in the closet, with Woody trying to lead, though he is stopped, though after she finishes breakfast, Bonnie comes to play town, casting her toys in roles: Dolly as mayor, Hamm as the banker, Slinky as the ice cream man, Trixie as the hat shop owner, Buzz as the mailman, Mr. Pricklepants as the baker, and finally the Sheriff, which she pulls out Woody's tag and gives it to Jessie, with Melephant, the other baby toys, Old Timer and Woody behind.

After Woody is left behind, he first seems distressed but upon Melephant and the other toys watching him, he plays it off, with them going to the window finding out that Bonnie was playing hat-shop, with them remembering when she played house with them, Melephant liking the game, calling it simple.

Then, when Old Timer realizes the fact that Woody got a dust ball, they seem excited to to give it a name (symbolizing he is being used less and less), though the cowboy pays little attention, though when Chairol mentioned tumbleweed, Melephant thought it made plenty of sense. However, when Dolly went to check up with Woody, only Melephant and the other toys are present, seeming confused on the events.
