Cultural ReferencesEdit

Some fans believe that Four Feather Falls was the inspiration for the fictional show Woody's Roundup which featured in the 1999 film Toy Story 2. Like Four Feather Falls, Woody's Roundup was a marionette show which was cancelled in favour of space shows, the former being succeeded by Supercar and Fireball XL5, the latter by the fictional Buzz Lightyear of Star Command. A connection is also suggested by the fact that the protagonists in Supercar and XL5 are named in the same style as the equivalent character from Toy Story; Mike Mercury and Steve Zodiac compared with Buzz Lightyear.
