The Girl: Jessie, Toy Story 2 (1999)
Why They're Great: Livewire cowgirl Jessie (voiced by the equally lively Joan Cusack) is the perfect companion for Woody, even though they don’t actually end up together (she takes a liking to Buzz).
Good-hearted and courageous where it counts, she’s no second fiddle and, after she’s betrayed by Prospector Pete, is only too happy to deliver justice.
How It Would've Been Different If They Were A Bloke: Brokeback Toys ‘R’ Us.
Children everywhere: confused. Parents everywhere: astonished.
