The Squeeze Toy Aliens, a.k.a. Little Green Men (or LGMs for short), are a bunch of 3-eyed space aliens voiced by Jeff Pidgeon in Disney/Pixar's 1995 film Toy Story and its sequels. They later appear as minor characters in the film, Buzz Lightyear of Star Command: The Adventure Begins, and the subsequent animated series.


In the Toy Story films, the Little Green Men appear to be promotional toys for Pizza Planet, as they wear uniforms with the restaurant's logo. They are known for their near-worship of "the Claw," the claw of the game they are a part of.

In Buzz Lightyear of Star Command, they are an actual alien race, many of whom work for Star Command as scientists. All LGMs have a telepathic link to one another, which is powered by an object on their homeworld, which is known as the Uni-Mind. Without it, the LGM's have trouble thinking clearly.


Toy Story

In the original film, these identical toys are prizes in a game of skill at the Pizza Planet restaurant and each one believes that the "Claw" will somehow choose one of them to "go on to a better place." When Sid Phillips plays the game, he wins one LGM toy before spotting Buzz Lightyear underneath it. Later at his house, he uses the same toy as a gift for his dog Scud to savagely tear it apart. Near the climax of the film, the LGM makes its prescence known after coming out of hiding to scare Sid along with the other toys so he doesn't torture them ever again. He celebrates with the other toys before Woody & Buzz leave with Andy Davis.

Toy Story 2

In Toy Story 2, three of these toys are found in a Pizza Planet truck that the toys hijack to chase Al to the airport. They also tells to release the truck's hand brake when Buzz asked why the truck won't go. During the pursuit, they almost get blown out of the open window, but are rescued by Mr. Potato Head and become attached to him. Their unison catchphrase is "You have saved our lives. We are eternally grateful." After the toys return to Andy's room, Mrs. Potato Head, hearing that her husband has saved the aliens, chooses to adopt them, much to his dismay. They become some of Andy's new toys.

During the Bloopers, Whilst the Camera Focus is being checked, the three discuss if any of them made it into the First Toy Story. One claims if you look at the letterbox copy, their arm is grabbing Woody's ankle. The same one then states that he's been offered to play a villain in a Toothpaste Ad, this greatly impresses the other two.

Toy Story 3

These same three aliens also appear in Toy Story 3. Set for storage, they end up in Sunnyside Daycare, along with the other toys. After experiencing torment from the young children, they and the other toys escape, only to end up in the city dump. Just as the other toys were about to be incinerated, they use a crane to save them all, declaring "The Claw!" Mr. and Mrs. Potato Head use their exact same words they have said to Mr. Potato Head in the second film to express their gratefulness, and Mr. Potato Head finally accepts them as their children. They are ultimately donated to Bonnie at the end of the film. In the credits, one of these toys play the role of Juliet Capulet while Mr. Pricklepants plays the role of Romeo Montague in their version of Romeo and Juliet.

Buzz Lightyear of Star Command


Three LGMs in Buzz Lightyear of Star Command: The Adventure Begins.

In the Buzz Lightyear of Star Command continuity, the LGMs work for Star Command as scientists and inventors. At the beginning of the pilot film, 3 LGMs have gone missing, and Buzz Lightyear and his partner Warp Darkmatter are tasked with finding them. Buzz is able to track the LGMs to a torture tank located in a hidden outpost of Emperor Zurg's. Though Buzz is able to rescue the LGMs, his partner apparently dies.

Later, the LGMs present Buzz with a new partner, XR. He is a robot soldier who is programmed to learn from Buzz. According to the LGMs, a robot partner was perfect for Buzz, who had turned down other protential partners as a result of losing his last one, as XR could be rebuilt if destroyed. Soon after, the LGM homeworld is invaded by Zurg. There, Zurg steals the Uni-Mind, an object which telepathically links all LGMs. As a result, the LGMs become unable to clearly think. This affects them as they rebuild XR, who had been destroyed in the attack. Instead of being a blank slate, the confused LGMs make the new XR a genius. Thankfully, Buzz, along with beautiful fellow ranger Mira, XR, and a janitor named Booster is able to retrieve the Uni-Mind from Zurg, who had intended to use it to control the minds of everyone in the galaxy. Afterwards, the LGMs link is restored and the LGMs return to normal.

  • At one point while making the original Toy Story, the characters in the claw machine would have been plastic pizza slices with sunglasses instead of aliens.
  • In Toy Story 2: The Video Game, the aliens are also sold at Al's Toy Barn, and their box names them Mr. Martian. A Mothership also lost a few of these aliens, which it needs to return home.
  • It is uncertain if the Aliens in the second and third films were also in the first film in the claw machine.
  • The line "Use the wand of power" may be a nod to the line "Use the force" from Star Wars.
