Movie Fun - Monsters, Inc.

A few weeks ago, I added some trivia about Noah's favorite movie, Cars.

Since that got a lot of good commentary, I've decided to continue with the fun.

And, since then, we've noticed the Monsters, Inc. building from the highway in Cars, I've decided to continue there!

I love how Pixar intertwines their movies, keeping up with the spirit of classic Disney.  It's ingenious and makes it even more fun for us adults watching!

The one that gets me every time, followed by more I've found on various sources!
  • The restaurant that Mike Waszowksi takes his Celia for their anniversary is Harryhausens- named after Roy Harryhausen, known for making monster movies
  • Boo has a Pixar ball, a Nemo toy, and a Jessie (Toy Story 2) doll in her room
  • Rex, from Toy Story, appears in the out takes
  • The Abominable Snowman is voiced by John Ratzenberger, who has voiced at least 1 character in every (I think!) Pixar movie to date! 
  • And, anyone else notice an eerie similarity from the human boy in the practice room scene and commercial to Andy from Toy Story?
Thanks to Hiddenmickeys.org and Pixar Wiki for the trivia - there's even more to check out!

Anyone notice any of these?   Which movie should I show next?  I'm thinking The Incredibles...


  1. I love these little tidbits! So much fun to look for them :-) Thanks for sharing!

  2. So fun! I am going to have to get this movie out and watch it again to look for these little things!

  3. Stopping in from the Tiggerific Hop. I already follow you and always enjoy your blog very much. Thanks for those little hidden tidbits:) It's always fun to look for them and now I have a few more:)

  4. I love this! I think The Incredibles is a great choice for next week.

  5. We were just watching Monster's Inc. this week, it is so funny. It is amazing how many hidden thing are there. Thanks and looking forward to the next one.
