Toy (Truck) Story

toytruckstory.jpgWhile Disney/Pixar's "Toy Story 3" doesn't hit theaters until June 18th, it's reasonable to assume that a garbage truck will play a role in the plot. We can deduce this because, according to The Press Democrat, the studio approached Santa Rosa, Calif.-based North Bay Corp. about recording sounds made by the hauler's collection vehicles for use in the film. The company obliged, sending four different trucks to Skywalker Sound where they were recorded while performing various tasks and made a MRF available for additional recording. In return, North Bay reportedly requested that Pixar depict the garbage truck in the film swathed in the company's green and white paint job with red and white reflective tape. Looking at the tie-in merchandising, it would appear that request was fulfilled.
