2. He begins by questioning why Andy’s hat is so different from Woody’s, since Andy is obviously influenced by him.
5. It’s suggested that Woody doesn’t remember any of this because “he’s been in Andy’s family for a long time, possibly belonging to his father.”
Which totally makes sense, because Woody has repressed the memories created with Andy’s father after his untimely death.
7. But why Jessie? It’s important to remember that Jessie’s owner, Emily, left her.
8. Now take a look at Emily’s room. The hat on her bed looks strikingly similar to Andy’s hat.
9. The psychedelic decor and record player indicate that Emily grew up in the ’60s and ’70s.
13. Which means…Emily could’ve grown up to be Andy’s mom!
14. And the reason why Andy’s mom, whose first name is never mentioned, doesn’t react to seeing Andy play with her childhood toy is because she’s indifferent toward Jessie.
As evidenced by the fact that she gave her up.
“How would you respond if you saw your child with a toy that looked like one that you had as a kid? Your first assumption probably wouldn’t be that they’re the exact same toy,” Negroni notes.

Pixar has not yet responded to BuzzFeed’s request for comment on Negroni’s theory.
