Well I'm aware that there are a few hidden characters in Flushed Away, and there is a Shrek pin in Monsters Vs Aliens, but besides these it is soley a Pixar tradition... Wait, how do I know this about DreamWorks movies?... Why do I know this about DreamWorks movies?!?

The bear from Over The Hedge also appears in Bee Movie. ;)

Its been a while since I lasted posted here, I'll start off with;

The incredibles
We all know Doc Hudson pays little visit in The Incredibles, but has anyone noticed Red being there too?
Image

Cars
In my opinion Cars is full with in jokes, but I think we can add one more
Anyone notice Knick Knack in Cars, He pays a cameo when Lightning McQueen is given a transformation by the town cars.
Image

Wall-E
Although I've lost most of my Wall-E references, I still had a few left.
When watching the movie a second time round, I've seem to notice something that looks like Frozone in Wall-E Trailer. I kept reviewing the clip again and again, to see if it really is Frozone. I'm still not certain, you decide. (someone with better quality help me please)
Image

Well back I saying I spotted two UP in jokes, I forgot the other one, but this one sticked in my head like glue. On the right-hand side, there seems to be an object resembling Carl Fredricksen walking stick .
Image

While Wall-E enters the Axiom and meets the people, we get shots of the Axioms features. One was of a nursery where a Robot is seen brainwashing the toddlers. There I noticed the floor pattern were the stars looked exactly like those seen in Andy's room in Toy Story 2. While looking at the image, I also I found what looks to be a Luxo Jr Ball pattern, It is on the bottom left-hand corner. If you look at it closely, it looks like it. Maybe someone with better quality can help me out.
Image

Ratatouille
This one I'm quite uncertain about, but I think the object I've circled looks like the Toy story plane that buzz used to fly with in Pixar's very first movie.
Image

Presto
Pixar is king for hiding in-jokes, just like that mini Luxo Jr Ball we see falling off the Presto's sleves. Well I found another one Pixar has been hiding. One of the waiters of Gusteau seen below, is also seen in the short.
Image

Here he is playing an instrument, when Presto is getting electrocuted.

Hope you guys enjoyed that :D

azzstar: Those are awesome! :D I never noticed any of them. As for the Luxo pattern in WALL-E, I think that's just the BnL logo, but I'm not totally sure.

Wow Azzstar, those are some very good discoveries. That firetruck in The Incredibles does look very similar to Red. Well done.

I thought you meant the unicycle.
It's not "add one more" by the way, there's no limit to how in-jokes being listed, as we try to get every in joke here.
I may of already posted the carl one.
Are you sure the player in Presto didn't have a different chin?
But good work. :)

At one point during the Toy Story 2 outtakes - the one where Slinky praises his butt - his butt makes the same noise as Luxo Jr.

Nice two-in-one here: Both the Bran cereal box from Up and a Harryhausen's take-out box from Monsters, Inc. are at the bottom of this shot in TS3.

In that shot, there's also a spaghetti box which I think might be the one you see in Ratatouille. It's in the bottom-left corner.

I can find the cereal box, but I can not find the take-out one! :lol:

Red: Just noticed the spaghetti box, but I wasn't 100% sure if it was from Ratatouille. I'll take your word for it. :P The Harryhausen's box is under the bran, it's the two chop sticks holding an eye.

Pizza Planet container at the bottom left here:

This is more fun than it should be :P

Definitely looks the same... it seems as though it's been modified a bit, though... like, in the TS3 shot the box doesn't have any logo on the flap where the opening is, and the green, white and red stripe doesn't run through the logo on the front.

I probably should have gotten a better, not-so-blurry shot. xDDD
