Toy Story of Terror
It's Scream with playthings. A scream and a hoot, to be precise. And the first real event of the Halloween season, deserving to become an annual family tradition right up there with It's the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown — which ABC is holding until Halloween night itself. Disney Pixar's first made-for-TV special, ABC's Toy Story of TERROR! (Wednesday, 8/7c), is a delightful half-hour vignette of gags, action and self-empowerment, couching its never-give-up message in terrific non-stop entertainment. Tom Hanks and Tim Allen are back as Woody and Buzz, along with such other iconic fan faves as Don Rickles' Mr. Potato Head and Wallace Shawn's anxious dinosaur Rex, but the focus is on cowgirl Jessie (Joan Cusack), who has to face her abandonment issues and fear of being boxed up alone when one by one, her pals keep disappearing from a shady roadside motel where their owner Bonnie (and her mom) are staying overnight.

For all the laughs and sweet surprises, the Toy Story franchise can also deliver big frights, from the freaky mutant toys in the 1995 original to the deadly incinerator that nearly claimed the lives of Woody, Buzz and the gang in 2010's Toy Story 3. Now the peeps at Pixar are dishing up more chills with their first-ever Halloween special, Toy Story of TERROR!, a takeoff on the old Agatha Christie chestnut And Then There Were None (aka Ten Little Indians).

Toy Story lives on!
In October, ABC will air Toy Story of Terror, a 30-minute special that reunites the original voice cast from the Toy Story franchise, TVGuide.com has learned exclusively.
From Pixar, Toy Story of Terror follows the adventures of the toys post-Toy Story 3, in which a fun road trip takes a very unexpected turn. "Bonnie is on a road trip to go see grandma with her mom and the toys are in the trunk," executive producer Galyn Susman says. "Mom gets a flat tire and they have to spend the night at a motel and all kinds of chaos ensues."

When a terrific series is truly on its game, some episodes can feel like absolute perfection. Happened Tuesday with a thrillingly entertaining and pivotal episode of FX's Justified, and the same feeling applies to Sunday's sensational The Good Wife (9/8c, CBS). It has everything: sex, suspense, surprise, humor, emotion — and as usual with this sophisticated standard-bearer for network drama, a dazzling array of guest performances.

A Denver man is facing charges for allegedly stealing Tim Allen's 1996 Chevy Impala after claiming to be his adopted son.
Faustino Ibarra, 34, currently faces charges for taking the car out of the Home Improvement star's Los Angeles home last week and driving it to his home in Colorado, according to the Associated Press.
Last Man Standing
Last Man Standing's Mike Baxter likes to keep to himself. That apparently includes not getting to know his neighbors.
But he may not have a choice on Friday's episode (8/7c, ABC). When his new African American neighbors' car is egged, Vanessa (Nancy Travis) urges Mike (Tim Allen) to tell them that their car wasn't the only one vandalized. As you can see in the exclusive sneak peek below, Mike isn't exactly for the idea (or exactly politically correct!).

"Vandalism happens to everybody, guys," Mike says. "Why is it if you're black or gay or a midget you think stuff happens to you just because you're black or gay or a midget? Maybe they're just jerks! I dated this black, gay midget in college..."
So what happens when Vanessa goes against Mike's advice? Tune in Friday at 8/7c on ABC to find out. Watch the sneak peek below:
