Woody from "Toy Story 2" and other Pixar characters are featured in a new line of postage stamps
The characters from "Toy Story 2," "Finding Nemo," "The Incredibles" and other Disney/Pixar films just found themselves in a sticky situation.
Woody, Bullseye and Nemo are among the animated characters to find their way onto a series of stamps issued Friday by the U.S. Postal Sevice, as part of the USPS's Mail a Smile campaign.
The 125 million stamps that were issued as part of the campaign also feature Pixar offerings "The Incredibles," "A Bug's Life" and "Monsters, Inc."
The campaign was launched with a dedication ceremony at Disney's Art of Animation Resort in Florida.
A U.S. Postal Service executive said that the campaign is intended to remind the public of the benefits of the mail in this age of e-mails and text messages.
“These delightful stamps lift spirits and touch hearts and remind us that when it comes to connecting with loved ones, technology is no match for the mail,” Jo Ann Feindt, Postal Service Southern Area vice president, said.
Jay Ward, Pixar Animation Studio's legacy guardian, added that the company is "thrilled ‘to infinity and beyond’ that these popular characters from ‘Toy Story 2,’ ‘Finding Nemo’ and other great Disney/Pixar films are featured on these colorful new stamps … This stamp issue will make posting a letter lots of fun for everyone in the family.”
