Responding to the positive response, Tony Hale, who is the voice of Forky, feels grateful. The 48-year-old comedian managed to elevate his character on a par with Woody and Buzz.
Besides Forky, a new character that also attracts attention is Duke Caboom. The form is a toy motorcycle stuntman from Canada. Which is very frustrated. After being abandoned by the owner in an antique shop.

Caboom is said to be no longer able to perform the attractions he showed in the advertisements. However, he still likes to show off his acrobatics on a motorbike.
Interestingly, to get the cast of Caboom, the production team did a blind audition: By asking Canadian actors to record and submit their voices. Even director Josh Cooley was, at last, shocked: Because, as it turned out, he had Keanu Reeves in the role!

When interviewed, through his role as Caboom, Keanu Reeves admitted that he wanted to give a deeper touch to the story. Not just acting on a motorbike. Because, according to him, the character created by Pixar is very strong and distinctive.
As it turned out, he had no trouble bringing out a confident side of Caboom. Because it is similar to the character he often played in a number of previous films.
However, when required to show the fragile side of Caboom, Reeves admitted that he had to try harder. In fact, the star of the film Speed (1994) had a long discussion with Josh Cooley. To get the right sound composition.
When interviewed, Josh Cooley also asserted: Every character in Toy Story 4 does have a contribution to the storyline. So, not just a patch. The process is difficult. However, Pixar wants every character to have a fan.
Including, the new characters. Starting from Forky, Duke Caboom, Gabby Gabby, to Giggle McDimples. That tiny little one. Everyone has a role in the storyline. And have a uniqueness that makes them attract attention. In essence, all characters have a clear portion.
Giggle McDimples, voiced by Ally Maki, is a miniature policewoman. He becomes Bo Peep’s traveling companion. And at the same time be his adviser during the adventure.
Meanwhile, Gabby Gabby is a vintage doll who becomes the antagonist. He spent most of his life in an antique shop after his sound-producing machine broke down. In fact, deep in his heart, the character played by Christina Hendricks also really needs love.
What makes it even more touching, director Josh Cooley is deliberately bringing up a new definition of villain. To make the content of the film more mature and realistic, the figure of Gabby Gabby is described as having another side. Which will make the audience rethink the meaning of villain.
Cooley wanted to show that there is nothing really bad or good in this world. Gabby Gabby just has a different perspective from Woody and other toys. He invited the audience to know the full story before judging. Cooley also praised Christina Hendricks for successfully voicing Gabby Gabby beautifully.
Like other villains, Gabby Gabby also has subordinates, aka servants. Namely: The Bensons. The ventriloquist puppet gang. Which only makes sound when controlled by humans. Although they look quite scary, the presence of The Bensons, in fact, makes this film even funnier. Especially, in the scene at the antique shop.
