Where is A113 in Monsters, inc., does anyone have a screencap.
P.S. What exactly does Wikipedia mean by: Sign seen in the background when Sulley sees Smitty and Needleman loading the trash compactor
...and when is that? I looked through the movie, but I couldn't find a sign behing them...

I don't think A113 is anywhere in Monsters, Inc.. The number on the trash machine was XP-13.

Also, about Wikipedia...they are liars.

Well, apparently it's been in all of the Pixar films, but in my many viewings of Monsters, Inc., I haven't spotted it and I don't think it is where they say it is in Wikipedia, either. The next time I watch MI, I'll keep an eye out.

A113 is an in-joke that's apparently included in all Pixar films. It originated from CalArts where A113 is the classroom number for the character animation students.

I only just found out about this A113 (i got curious after spotting it in Toy Story and realising it was the same as Autopilot's directive..)

I havent watched monsters inc since so i havent been looking for it, but id guess its got to be on one the CIA members. There's alot of them... that or maybe in some paperwork somewhere... xD

I should watch it again soon and have a look for it hehe

hmm

I don't think that IS a character in Monsters Inc.

BUT

A113 IS something in Wall-E

Auto refuses and shows the Captain a secret recording from Forthright, sent out to the Axiom in the year 2110, codenamed A113, that was made when the cleanup operation failed.


Atleast that is what I found on Wikipedia.com!

*cranes neck*
I may have to look into this.
Oh and to just put that out there, did anybody notice the M.I, symbol on the can that Wall-e uses as a "hat" in the beginning of Wall-e? ^_-

Well I think Wikipedia means when Sully sees the eye from Boo's costume in the compactor. I went through it frame-by-frame in iTunes, and all I can see is when Sully run down the stairs, the floor number is 13, but I can't find 'A1' anywhere.

Pixar can be clever in how they extend the "A113" rule. Like in the Incredibles, it's the section Bob is in, when Helen looks in a monitor station, it first starts if I recall...with A1 on the left, and the camera pans to the right to reveal 13 being the floor/section, what have you, that Bob's on. So A113 would be in the same area/shot, but not neccessarily all together.

A113 was the classroom that two of the animators were in in college. It's in every PIXAR movie

a113 is a reference to the college room most of the animators learned their skills. i think it was called California institute of art or something. it appears in every pixar film.
in monsters inc it appears on one of the office doors in the hallway sulley and boo run down and bump into the disinfectors
in toy story it appears on a licience plate
in bugs life it appears on the circus crews truck
in finding nemo its on the divers goggles
i cant remember the others
i heard this on a pixar documentary. hope this helps!
