Yeah, that’s not freaky at all. This weird robot-potato-human hybrid (there’s a hidden operator) is a first among Disney’s robots, as it is able to form the shapes of words with its mouth. Just a few more steps to fully functioning Cylons! The ride, Toy Story Mania, is super high-tech with lots of audience interaction and advanced technology which Mr. Potato Head embodies most creepily. There’s a pretty in-depth look at it here if you like rides (like your mom) and a video at the NYT.
