Mr. Potato Head from "Toy Story 3" is one of the characters in the Walt Disney Pictures/Pixar animated film.

Mr. Potato Head ("Toy Story 3") is a wise-cracking, hot-headed spud, complete with angry eyes. He's the eternal pessimist with a tough plastic exterior, but his total devotion to his little "sweet potato," Mrs. Potato Head, reveals a softer side.

Don Rickles celebrates his third outing as the irritable Mr. Potato Head. "When John Lasseter first told me that I was going to be Mr Potato Head, I said, 'I don't play potatoes. Leave me alone. I gotta try to make a career.' Little did I realize that I would be able to get my wife some jewellery and a couple of houses and so forth. The money's very good.

"This movie has a great storyline," continues Rickles. "There's a lot of jumping, and running and jumping. Lots of action. If you look down for a couple of minutes, you find that Mr Potato Head is in a garbage can or he flew over a chair. You gotta be right on your toes."

Rickles claims Mr. Potato Head is the true star in the film. "I gotta be honest, I'm a riot in this film, and the things I say are brilliant. Tom Hanks and Tim Allen are time killers. I have to admit, I'm brilliant. It scares me the greatness that I have. In fact, when I think about it, I'm too great for the film. It should just be about Mr. Potato Head."
