People from the latest installment of the Toy Story franchise have today received wide spread criticism from parents and media watchdogs alike over a controversial scene in Toy Story 3 centered around the two main character's of the film sharing a passionate kiss with each other.

In the scene, toys Buzz Lightyear and Woody make their feelings known and then proceed to participate in a romantic smooch. Father Mike Hunt, who took his children to see the latest adventure of Hollywood's favourite toys in New York made his feelings clear to the makers of the film.

He commented: 'It was awkward for us adults to watch. I don't know what it would have been like for the children. I spotted many viewers moving around uncomfortably in their seats and others pretending not to realise what was going on by either looking like they were asleep or fiddling with their food. The first thing my son said to me when we left the theatre was over why two male toys were kissing each other. It very much left a sour taste on our mouths and ruined what was a perfectly enjoyably movie up until then!'

Amanda Lynn head of media watchdog group OnCom said 'We are all for gay equality but this in a child's film is nothing short of confusing for them. What made it worse was the appearance of Mr Potato Head in the middle of the scene. Pixar have been very ill informed.'

An official comment is yet to be made on the issue, and it is thought unlikely that one will ever arise.

The film has been rated 15 following previous criticisms of violence, swearing and apparent drug use following allegations that Rex the dinosaur was doing legal highs.
