Toy Story 3: Ken and Barbie

Walt Disney Pictures and Pixar have released a brand new clip today from Toy Story 3, in which we first meet the well-dressed toy known as Ken. You know, Barbie’s old flame. In this very funny minute and a half clip, Ken walks Woody, Buzz and the gang around their new home, the day care center to which they’ve been donated after Andy left for college.

In Toy Story 3, Ken is voiced by Michael Keaton, and he has more than a few fun little moments in this clip that revolve around the classic relationship between Ken and Barbie (voiced by Jodi Benson, of The Little Mermaid fame). A relationship that is more or less the most sexual thing in the history of childhood playthings, depending on whose house you are visiting. Personally, I never played with Ken or Barbie. I didn’t have sisters. But if I had, I’m fairly certain that Ken would have had to contend with all four members of the Ghostbusters and a swarm of horny Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. I’m not calling Ken a Nancy-boy, but he wouldn’t have won that fight. This clip hints at a different path for Ken, one that starts with loneliness and leads to being pounced upon by that cute blonde with the ponytail.

Toy Story 3 is in theaters June 18, 2010.
