Among the scripts Circle 7 had under consideration was one from Teacher's Pet screenwriters Bill and Cheri Steinkellner. Their idea for the film involved Woody, Buzz and the rest of the gang being sent to Andy's grandmother's house for the night, because Andy's room is getting remodeled. Woody, Buzz, and new characters Hee-Hee, and Gladiola try to find out who stole the other toys in a whodunit-style mystery. Though it was rejected, Disney was so impressed with the script that this version would have been considered for a possible fourth installment. This version of the script was eventually uploaded in September 2019. The final version of the Circle 7 script was written by Meet the Parents screenwriter Jim Herzfeld. It focused on Andy's Mom shipping a malfunctioning Buzz to Taiwan where he was built, with the other toys believing he will be fixed there. While searching on the Internet, they then discovered that many more Buzz Lightyear toys are malfunctioning around the world and the company has issued a massive recall. Fearing Buzz's destruction, a group of Andy's toys (Woody, Rex, Slinky, Mr. Potato Head, Hamm, Jessie, and Bullseye) all ship themselves to Taiwan and venture out to rescue Buzz. At the same time, Buzz meets other toys from around the world that were once loved, but have been recalled.
