The 15 Best Easter Eggs You Might Have Missed In Your Favorite Animated Films.

A Life Of Crime

Animation gives artists the creative freedom to run with their imagination and create whatever it is that they want. Included in that are little secrets and references that are hidden in plain sight, these are called Easter eggs. They can be found in quite a few movies. But have you ever seen one with your own two eyes?

A Life Of Crime

Walt Disney Pictures

In the show "Big Hero 6," Sergeant Gerson appeared as the police officer who took Hiro’s report about Yokai and the theft of his Microbots. In the end of movie credits, Gerson appears again. In his office a wanted poster with a picture of Hans, the villain in "Frozen," can be seen. Since we’re on the topic of "Frozen," you might have missed this Easter egg of Anna and Elsa!

Thanks to all of the wide shots making it easy to hide little details, "Zootopia" is a great place for Easter eggs.. One that can be found is during a winter scene where an elephant family can be seen taking their daughters ice-skating. Looking close enough, you can see that the daughters are dressed like Elsa and Anna from "Frozen." The next film shows a part of history you may be too young to remember.

Our next movie, "Wall-E" takes place in the year 2805, when the Earth is uninhabitable and all the humans have left. Wall-E begins following Eve by holding on to her mothership and cruises past a bunch of derelict satellites. You may be surprised, but one of the satellites is Sputnik I, the first satellite ever launched by the USSR. Since old references are making an appearance, check out this next one.

They'll Never Be Forgotten

At times, animators like to show their respect for the movie classics. A scene in "The Secret Life Of Pets" shows Chloe reminding Pops that she’s a cat, and he replies, “Well, nobody’s perfect.” This line actually comes from the last line in the movie "Some Like It Hot," with Marilyn Monroe and Tony Curtis. The next Easter egg might make you question some things.

What's Cooking?

Pixar Animation Studios

In the movie "Inside Out," there’s a scene in which Riley can be seen playing in the living room. On top of the table where she’s sitting is a stack of magazines, on top is a magazine called Haute Dish. We can only assume it’s a cooking magazine, because Colette, the chef from "Ratatouille" is on the cover, but who knows. The next two movies are definitely one in the same.
