Since it began making movies for Disney, Pixar has always been known for its intricacy and attention to detail. You’re probably already familiar with the A-113 Easter egg, a reference to a room at the California Institute of Arts where Pixar filmmakers like Brad Bird and John Lasseter used to take classes. But a lot of the time, the little winks that Pixar is able to squeeze into their films are not as easy to spot, whether they are nods to their own movies or just other Disney movies in general.

As Pixar’s first real villain, you probably remember the sadistic Sid from the original Toy Story movie. What you may not have realized is that Sid makes an appearance in Toy Story 3 as a garbage man – just look for the skull shirt.
