Mr. Pricklepants is a minor character in Disney/Pixar's 2010 film Toy Story 3, and will be a main character in its upcoming sequel Toy Story 4. He is a stuffed hedgehog toy.

Personality

He wears lederhosen and usually views himself as a thespian. Mr. Pricklepants was made in Germany and is from the Waldfreunde collection of premium imported plush toys like Sonic the Hedgehog is from Japan. He is the de facto leader of Bonnie's toys and takes playtime as a job in acting. He warns Woody of how dangerous Lotso is and helps him get back to Sunnyside Daycare. In the credits, Mr. Pricklepants welcomes Woody and his friends to Bonnie's house and is seen playing Romeo in a version of Romeo and Juliet with one of the Alien toys as Juliet.

Appearances

Toy Story 3

Mr. Pricklepants is a thespian hedgehog in lederhosen who says that he's "trying to stay in character," even when Woody tried inquiring as to his whereabouts. As Bonnie began playtime with her toys, she spits a jellybean onto Mr. Pricklepants in response to one of Woody's automated voices mentioning poison. Once Bonnie went to sleep, her toys helped Woody chart a path to Andy's house. But when he mentions passing a message to his fellow toys at Sunnyside Daycare, Bonnie's toys become alarmed and ask how he escaped. Mr. Pricklepants describes Sunnyside as "a place of ruin and despair, ruled by an evil bear who smells of strawberries." He points out Chuckles to testify. Despite their warnings that it's too dangerous to return to Sunnyside, Woody went anyway and rescued his friends. The next day, Woody returns to Bonnie's house with his friends, having been donated by Andy. When Andy leaves, Mr. Pricklepants is seen talking with Hamm.

In the end credits, he plays Romeo, alongside an Alien who is playing Juliet.
