“Easter eggs,” those hidden inside jokes or cross-cultural references found in media, have long been a part of the Disney and Pixar tradition: At least as far back as 101 Dalmatians—which features blink-and-you’ll miss them cameos from several Lady and the Tramp characters—animators have had fun harking back to previous works.
Just in time for the holiday, Pixar has released a short, specially prepared Easter egg hunt for fans. There are the famous A113 jokes, of course, but there are also a few that even serious Pixar fans may have missed. Enjoy.
