Yes, of course. Hamm was a piggy bank and slink was a dog whose middle
body was a slinky.

Sid, by the way, was the nasty little boy next door who dismembered toys
for fun -- hence the use of his name for the unstable branch.

Do you just generally dislike films, or "kid" movies? Toy Story is
actually a lot of fun for all ages. The script has a lot of clever
touches aimed at the adults in the audience. Amazingly, Toy Story 2 is
also quite good; Pixar chose not to just make an inferior clone of the
first movie, and instead took the characters in a somewhat different
direction.
