Hero Overview

Hey Hamm, Look! I'm Picasso!
~ Mr. Potato Head talking to Hamm.

Mr. Potato Head is a character in the Disney/Pixar Toy Story franchise.

He is a potato-shaped toy, his patented design allows him to separate his detachable parts from his body by removing them from the holes on his body. He also has a compartment on his lower back to store extra appendages. He is the only toy shown to be capable of retaining control over his parts even if they are several centimeters/inches away from his main body, most likely because his toy is designed to be taken apart, unlike many other types of toys. For example, he can still see if his detachable eyes are removed, as well as being able to move his hands if they are detached.

In the films, Potato Head was the tertiary antagonist of the original Toy Story, a major character in Toy Story 2 and one of the main characters of Toy Story 3. He will return in Toy Story 4. He was also in the Toy Story Toons and the TV specials Toy Story of Terror and Toy Story That Time Forgot.

In the first three films, He was voiced by the late Don Rickles who recently died in April 2017. According to News, Rickles died before he recorded any of Potato Head's lines for Toy Story 4. So it is likely in the fourth film, Potato Head will have a new voice actor.


Mr. Potato Head is crabby, moody, funny and sarcastic. 

He is also somewhat fatherly since he is The Aliens' adoptive father.
