Ah, Pixar. The wonderful animation studio that has given us countless unforgettable and heart-wrenching tales. Their stories have impact, and their characters are timeless — they’re the perfect studio for the whole family, right? Sure, there are tons of little in-jokes that are often fun little nods to both their history and their future, but not all of them.
Every so often, there’s an Easter egg that doesn’t allude to anything of Pixar’s, but rather an appreciation for film in general. Occasionally, they don’t even fall under the “kid-friendly” category.

It’s no huge deal, but it goes to show the personality and fun the studio allows in their films.
