Here is Screen Rant’s list of ten Paused Disney Moments That Reveal Hidden Easter Eggs.
When the scarers go in and out of doors to scare little children pay close attention
to the items on the doors. Like most children, the kids in Monsters, Inc. place stickers
on the outside of their doors and if you look closely you’ll notice something special
about these stickers. They are the little critter characters from the Woody’s Round-Up
TV show in Toy Story 2. It looks like Woody is still popular during the time of Monsters,
Inc. maybe that’s why Jesse shows up in Boo’s room.
Inside Out has several Easter Eggs and we have mentioned quite a few of them in past
videos but one arrives in the beginning of the film that if you were still getting popcorn
you might have missed it. When the Anderson family is driving to their new home they drive
past a field of corn but look at the telephone wires. Sitting on the wires are the birds
from the Pixar short, For the Birds. The cool part is, For the Birds must have taken place
in the fall when the corn is dried up and Inside Out during the spring as it grows.
It looks like no one headed south for the winter.
The Pizza Planet truck is a popular Easter egg to spot and in Cars 2 he shows up during
the casual race as a spectator. This one isn’t so hard to spot but many people don’t realize
he’s in two scenes in this film. When Guido is showing off his drink mixing skills stop
looking at him and look above him to the TV. The Pizza Planet truck is being interviewed,
maybe that’s why he’s in so many Pixar films, he’s a world famous celebrity!
The first Toy Story film is what started it all for Disney, Pixar and rightly so, this
film still holds up today and will for another bazillion years. We’re pretty sure no one
will argue with us on that point but one argument that stands the test of time is Star Trek
versus Star Wars. The people at Pixar couldn’t make a choice in 1995’s Toy Story. Check
out Buzz’s hand when he says goodbye, Spock would be proud and when Buzz talks about Emperor
Zurg’s evil plan. He speaks directly about the Death Star
even in part two we find out Buzz is the son of Zurg. Sound familiar?
In Finding Nemo we learned that the dentist not only likes to cause pain to the children
he works on but he also likes to provide his niece with fish, no matter how many she kills.
She shouldn’t own fish and it seems like the people at the Marine Life Institute know
she shouldn’t too. In Finding Dory they have her picture up on the wall at the institute.
Or maybe it’s hanging there because she belongs in the quarantine section because
something is wrong with her.
George Carlin is highly regarded as one of the greatest and most influential stand-up
comedians of all time. Despite a great career in stand-up he also provided the voice of
the character Fillmore in 2006’s Cars. The characters in this film are usually moving
and we never get too close to the license plates but many of the license plates have
double means. For instance Fillmore’s license plate reads 51237, which stands for Carlin’s
birthdate, May 12th 1937.
A Bug’s Life
Here is one that you have to pause two different films and have a pretty good eye. In the film
A Bug’s Life the ants live under a fancy looking tree that seems to mean more than
meets the eye. If you watch Toy Story 2 you will notice that the film has the same exact
tree in it. Just look at that shape! With the erosion around the tree in A Bug’s Life
we have to wonder what event took place to cause that erosion and will that be the subject
of an upcoming Pixar film?
The Black Cauldron
In the 1980’s Disney was looking at the success of Jim Henson’s 1982 film The Dark
Crystal for inspiration. They saw that dark, fantasy adventure films were on the rise and
they wanted to get into that market. That’s why they released The Black Cauldron in 1985;
but they also pulled inspiration from their 1953 film Peter Pan. When Taran heads into
a cave, he is surrounded by fairies and one is none other than the attitude filled, Tinkerbell.
Remember to only think happy thoughts.
Zootopia has numerous references to pop culture that they even hired Shakira to portray Gazelle.
Judy Hopps even has a portable music player with music from Fur Fighters, Fleetwood Yak,
and The Beagles but we only caught one from Star Wars. When the stars of Zootopia break
into Cliffside they look around with a flashlight. Pause the video and you will see the code
TK-421 on the wall, as any good Star Wars fan knows, this is reference to a foolish
Stormtrooper that fell for the oldest trick in the book.
When Elastigirl flies a plane, she identifies her plane to the radio tower. It stands for
I G 99, which also stands for the Iron Giant that was released in 1999 by director, Brad
Bird. Then when she is in the control tower, A113 makes an appearance too. A113 refers
to a classroom number at the California Institute of Arts, where many artists from Disney started
their careers including Brad Bird. Looks like Bird likes to reference his past.
