More Toy Story is headed to the small screen.  Though most figured that Toy Story 3 would be the last time we saw Pixar’s loveable band of toy characters in their own story, the studio decided to let Woody, Buzz, and the rest of the gang live on in short form.  The first Toy Story short, the very funny Hawaiian Vacation, debuted with Cars 2, and the studio has continued the trend with two further shorts, Small Fry and Partysaurus Rex.

Earlier this summer we got wind that Pixar was planning two 22-mintute Toy Story TV specials to debut in 2013 and 2014, and now we have a tantalizing title for the first installment: Toy Story of Terror.  Hit the jump for more.

What starts out as a fun road trip for the Toy Story gang takes an unexpected turn for the worse when the trip detours to a roadside motel. After one of the toys goes missing, the others find themselves caught up in a mysterious sequence of events that must be solved before they all suffer the same fate in this Toy Story of Terror.

A holiday-themed Toy Story special is intriguing in and of itself, but the idea of the characters taking part in a sort of murder mystery sounds like a lot of fun.  The 22-minute special is set to air during the Halloween season in 2013, presumably on ABC, Disney Channel, or ABC Family (all three are owned by Disney).  No word on the 2014 special, but it’s neat to hear that the Toy Story characters on living on in a more extended format.

Moreover, if you missed the Toy Story short Partysaurus Rex that played in front of Finding Nemo 3D in theaters, it’ll be airing on Disney Channel tonight, October 8th at 10:05pm EST directly after the Disney Channel Original Movie classic Halloweentown.
