I almost feel bad for Toy Story OF TERROR!, at least today. The Pixar short has debuted an extended clip that will give you a good look at what the Halloween-themed story will deliver when it airs later this month. And that’s well and good.

In addition, it now looks like the gang will reunite again for Toy Story of Terror, a TV special due out next year. Read more about both titles after the jump.
