No three-year-old can rhyme that well. Where Riley and Bing Bong would try to get to the moon in their rocket ship, we had showjumping courses, painstakingly assembled out of garden chairs and brooms raised and lowered to different levels depending on how ambitious our legs were feeling.
Sitting with Sadness. Lessons from Inside Out.
At this point I was learning to play cards, and named my favourite horse Racing Demon. Racing Demon was keen on rearing up and snorting, but amazingly, this was never quite enough to unseat his rider.
I started spending my Saturdays at a real stable, and fell in love with a vast piebald monstrosity called Harry Batiste who had a penchant for standing on my feet and leaning just enough for the toenails to come off.
Harry B was a worthy successor to my invisible stables. He taught me how to ride and be fearless, and to be grateful that nothing was broken if I did fall off.
The fact that he is very likely dead, 15 years on, is devastating. Bing Bong will be followed by millions of other memories and experiences, all coloured by mixed emotions rather than the clear-cut primary colours of childhood.
The following scene where Bing Bong sacrifices himself to help Joy is simply devastating.
He first recorded his lines before the film was animated. He greatly missed the times he shared with Riley and was desperate to not be forgotten until one day when he is discovered by the misplaced emotions Joy and Sadnesswho were accidentally ejected from Headquarters.
Afraid of their sudden appearance, Bing Bong initially tried to run, but when Joy presents herself, he is thrilled to meet her.
As the two need to return to Headquarters, Bing Bong, who has been forgotten for a long time, agrees to help them, more so when Joy tells him she will put him back in business when she gets back. He proposes that they take the Train of Thought that will lead them directly to Headquarters, and shows them the way.

In fact, he leads them into danger in Abstract Thoughtwhich he thinks is a shortcut. Luckily, they escape just in time before they implode. They get out, but soon Bing Bong witnesses the demolition of the childish aspects in Imagination Land with his precious Rocket Wagon thrown into the Memory Dump in the process, Bing Bong falls into a deep depression.
Joy tries to get him to stop being sad by making silly faces and doing childish things, but they don't work. When Sadness talks to him, she empathizes with him, and by getting him to express his sadness, she comforts him and inspires Bing Bong to bring them to the Train of Thought. However, the train stops as Riley is asleep.
