The Disney Pixar Blog (one of my favorite Tumblr’s by the way) just posted a series of posts about the Pizza Planet truck appearing in every single Pixar film since Toy Story. It’s an easter egg that’s always fun to look out for when watching a Pixar film. One of the things I never noticed before until I started seeing the posts back to back on their blog was that one of the scenes is reused in the 2001 film “Monsters, Inc.”.
The original trailer with the Pizza Planet truck first appeared in the 1998 film “A Bug’s Life” (bottom image).
I shouldn’t be surprised though as Disney has a history of recycling animation frames. There’s even a video of proof.
