Snazzy: Up on The Simpsons/Pizza Planet Truck in Real Life

Some snazzy Pixar related stuff floating around the internet:

Up Floats into Springfield: The Simpsons crew decided to add a little in-joke on Up in the season finale for their show. Many Pixar animators come from the Simpsons and vice-versa, so it was really cool of them to make that reference! You may remember last year, WALL•E made a cameo in another Simpsons episode. You can watch the clip here, wait ‘til the end for Carl’s house:

Pizza Planet Truck, For Real: Remember the Pizza Planet truck cameo in Cars? Take Five a Day is reporting you can own Todd the Pizza Planet truck now! I know a lot of people have been looking forward to this die-cast release as well, and it’s great to report to you it’s finally available in stores.

To make it even better, check out this picture a reader sent the die-cast Cars fan blog. After a little Photoshop tweaking it looks just like a real-life version of the iconic truck!

Do you know of anything Pixar related that isn’t exactly news but would be of interest to fans? Send it over to us and we might feature it in "Snazzy!"

  1. The “Todd the Pizza Planet truck” link, is the wrong URL. I’d love to own a PPT die-cast, though. Aw, that custom die-cast is too clever! And imagine if that Photoshop was actually real! They could take it on a promotional tour for Toy Story 3.

    Thanks for catching that Rachel!!
    I’m going to buy the truck tomorrow if I can find it. And your idea to tour the truck is genius!!! Hope they do it. 🙂

  3. You mean they’re selling them already? I’ll have to check out Target…

    So his name is Todd, huh? Normally, I wouldn’t purchase “Cars” merchandise, but this is one that I probably won’t be able to pass up….

    That “Simpsons” spoof on “Up” is great, as well. I can’t believe they highlighted it this early. Just goes to show how much of an impact Pixar’s films have on society.

    Thanks for the information!
