Separated at birth: Willie and Woody?

TODAY /
Willie, Woody. Woody, Willie. Can you tell the difference?

In case you missed it on Tuesday, Al bestowed Willie with a brand-new nickname when he accidentally referred to him as Woody. But was it something more than a simple mistake?

Al explained the possible Freudian slip by noting the incredible resemblance between Willie and Woody, the fictional cowboy from the "Toy Story" films.

"Al, I've been on the show for three months now," Willie complained, but then gamely donned a partial Woody costume to test the theory.

"There IS a resemblance!" insisted Savannah.

"Dead ringer!" said Natalie, who added, "Now we know what you can be for Halloween."

Do you see a resemblance, or just suspect this is another one of Al's subterfuges?
