Sid's Personality is described as a bratty skate punk and usually a bully who uses his younger sister's toys for experiments. Sid is also described as a twisted disturbed skate punk who got kicked out of summer camp and wears braces.
Sid Phillips also wears a black t-shirt that consists of a white cross eyed skull which he wears throughout the movie. Sid is known to also be a bully and tends to destroy and break toys just for fun. He is Andy's evil 10 year old neighbor. Sid Phillips also has a skateboard and tends to skate on private property where people are bound to call the police at him for doing so.
Sid is also known to be really violent and is also known to be really evil to toys especially at the beginning of the movie. Sid is also really scary and bullies his younger sister a lot and makes fun of her by taking her toys away and using them for scary experiments like switching out heads or performing operations on them.
Sid's attitude toward toys is mean.
Sid is Andy's sociopathic 10 year-old neighbor (until he moves at the end of the film). Sid is introduced in the beginning of the film as a toy terrorizer when he blows up a Combat Carl with an M-80 firecracker with his toy-chewing dog Scud by his side. Andy's toys are surprised to see him back at his old habits so soon, assuming he gets kicked out of summer camp early this year. Later that day, when Andy and his family go to Pizza Planet for dinner, Sid is also there. After playing "Whack-an-Alien", the Crane Game catches his attention. After grabbing a Squeeze Toy Alien, a Buzz Lightyear is put in view. He then goes after him, getting not only Buzz, but Woody the cowboy doll hooks onto his foot as well (Woody tries to save Buzz, but the aliens won't let him).
After skateboarding back home with his new toys in his backpack, he is immediately greeted by Scud, whom he gives the alien to. Then, seeing his sister Hannah with her Janie Doll, he snatches the toy and runs up to his room, slamming the door in Hannah's face. He then pulls out his Pterodactyl toy as he plays doctor for his "double-bypass brain transplant". After putting Pterodactyl's head on Janie Doll's body, he opens up the door and shows Hannah. Scared, she runs off to report to her mother. Sid throws the mutant toy at the ground and runs after her, implying that Hannah is lying. With Sid gone, Woody explores his room to find a way out, but finds the door locked and is unable to escape. He then discovers that Sid has taken toys apart and assembles them back together in weird combinations.
In a deleted scene, the next morning, Sid tortures Buzz by spinning him on a drillbit and then takes Woody and throws him across the floor, pretending to interrogate him. Next, he opens up the window shade to let the sun in. He then takes out a magnifying glass and focuses the hot beam of light on Woody's forehead, until Sid's mom informs him his "Pop Tarts" are ready.
Sid returns to his room later with a rocket he has ordered in the mail, labeled "The Big One." He intends to blow apart one of his toys with the rocket for his own amusement. Initially, he is to blow up that "wimpy cowboy doll," but he can't find him (Woody hides under a milkcrate). However, when he steps on Buzz' laser button, which activates the laser light bulb, he chooses to tape the rocket on Buzz, stating that he has always wanted "to blow a spaceman into orbit". Unfortunately for Sid, he is forced to delay the launch due to "adverse weather conditions at the launch site" when a rainstorm hits, giving Woody and Buzz time to reconcile overnight.
At the end, Woody and all of the mutant toys plan a way to extract revenge on Sid and help Buzz before Sid destroys him with the rocket. The toys all appear out of nowhere and approach Sid, making him increasingly scared. Woody then tells Sid to take care of his toys, because they will know if he does not. After seeing Woody come to life in front of his face, Sid screams and retreats back into the house, frightened that the toys have come alive. Hannah then takes pleasure in scaring her brother even more with her dolls after she discovers how scared he is.
Sid is never seen again as Andy and his toys all move away, but they never forget Sid's wicked deeds. It is unknown if Sid ever recovers from the incident. Sid's rocket is ultimately utilized by Woody during the move to Andy's new house to help RC Car, whose batteries have been depleted, back into the moving truck as Woody and Buzz both go skyrocketing, during which Buzz frees himself from the rocket by opening his wings to tear off the tapes that binds him to the rocket (as for the rocket, it climbs up for a few feet higher before exploding into smithereens).
Monsters Inc.: Laugh Factory
Sid made guest appearances in issues 3 and 4 of the Monsters, Inc. comic book mini-series, Laugh Factory, as the main antagonist, though his name is never actually given (as the monsters do not bother learning it from him). At the beginning of the third issue, "Toy Worry", he ducks into Boo's bedroom to hide from Sulley and Mike when they're pursuing him. We learn from Sulley and Mike that Sid has been using the monsters' door-traveling technology to break into kids' rooms and steal their toys. Afterwards, Sid escapes with Boo's Jessie doll, and Boo follows him into Monsters, Inc. to help Mike and Sulley capture him. Upon being caught and brought to the C.D.A., Sid states that he has been stealing the toys in an attempt to "save" the kids from suffering the same incident he did, but the monsters do not believe him. They have Sid thrown back to his home through Hannah's door.
In the next issue's story, Sid breaks back into Monstropolis and helps Randall Boggs and Mr. Waternoose escape from prison. They offer to give him the plans for their door-traveling technology (which Sid plans to get rich off of in his world) in exchange for him helping them get revenge on Sulley and Mike. They manage to capture the heroes along with Celia and Boo (the latter of whom stowed away with Sulley as he was coming back from his last visit with her), but the girls manage to escape back into the human world with Sid and the two villainous monsters pursuing them. Eventually, Celia and Boo manage to find another closet-door back to Monstropolis, where they lead Sid, Randall, and Waternoose into captivity by the C.D.A. At the end, Sid is again sent back home, with the monsters hoping that he has had enough of them now.
Toy Story 3
Sid appears in Toy Story 3, grown up and working on a garbage truck. He is seen twice in the film, the first time being as he comes to pick up the trash from Andy's house (including Andy's toys who were also in a bag and mistakenly got put outside by Ms. Davis, whom Woody hurries out to rescue without being seen). Sid is mostly heard scatting to music and is identified by having the same skull t-shirt that he wore as a kid, along with a yellow vest, goggles, a goatee, and a big set of headphones. He is seen again near the end of the film, after the toys escape from the incinerator at the Tri-County Landfill and hitch a ride on his garbage truck to get home. During his brief re-encounter with him in the first scene, Woody apparently did not recognize him as being Sid as he was more concerned about saving the others. In the second scene, the toys also didn't recognize Sid because their attention was focused on the garbage truck that would be used to take them home. His sister, Hannah Phillips, is not seen in this movie, nor is Scud for that matter. It is possible Scud has passed away at this point, given that this film takes place about 11 years after the first film.
- Sid is mentioned in Toy Story 2 during the journey to find Woody.
- Terrance from the Cartoon Network series Foster's Home For Imaginary Friends seems to have been based on Sid, both appearance wise and personality wise. Also, Buford Van Stomm from the Disney Channel series Phineas and Ferb seems to have a very similar shirt to Sid's.
- When Sid sees Woody start to speak directly to him after he threatens to blow up Buzz Lightyear into outer space, he panics and he is really scared, The toys also plan to extract revenge on Sid Phillips after they thought he was evil and blew up toys and destroyed them.
- Sid becomes scared in Toy Story when his sister Hannah shoves a doll right into his face. He panics later and runs back to his room never to be seen again. He's crying and he looks pretty shocked after the incident with the toys.
- It is unknown if Sid ever recovers from the incident. Perhaps he does or maybe he does not depending on the situation itself. In Toy Story it's never revealed as to why he was so scared that he became a Garbage Man later on in Toy Story 3.
- Sid was mentioned to be a really mean toy abuser who takes apart and breaks them and also uses them for experiments. He also is known and tends to be a bully towards his younger sister Hannah Phillips and he takes her toys away from her. When Pixar first started production on the movie Toy Story they wanted the actor Erik von Detton to do his role and voice Sid Phillips who is supposed to be an evil toy abuser. Supposedly Sid Phillips in the movie is usually a violent skate punk who wears braces and is described as a mean and mentioned as a toy abuser who takes toys or blows them up. Sid's task was to break toys and then launch Buzz Lightyear into outer space when his plan failed and the toys exacted their revenge on him by telling him to play nice. The same happens to Sid when Hannah shoves her doll Sally right into his face and he runs scared back to his room never vowing to see another toy in his face ever again. This was the only time he thought toys came to life and were alive before his very own eyes after he was taught a lesson after strapping Buzz Lightyear to his rocket called The Big One.
- The name called The Big One is a reference to the game Fallout 3 when the player suddenly encounters the rocket. It was called The Big One because it's the rocket that Sid Phillips used to blow Buzz Lightyear up with. That's why when the player found it is the same rocket that was mentioned in the movie Toy Story which Sid ordered in the mail to come and pick it up later.
- Sid is the only human character in the Toy Story series who knows toys are alive.
- Erik Von Detten returned to voice the character in Toy Story 3. The fact that he is now older than he was when he did the first Toy Story movie had no affect on the character of Sid since he also had grown up.
- His name is a reference to Sidney Phillips.
- Sid is the only Toy Story villain who is a human
