Most people know that Pixar films have hidden Easter eggs within their films, but they often go one step further and add tiny details that often go straight over most people’s heads! We’ve found our favorite hidden details for you to look for in your next re-watch, so get ready to binge!

 

1. In Toy Story, Woody is helping captive by a heavy toolbox on top of the crate he is trapped in. If you look closely at the toolbox, its brand is the fictional “Binford”. Why do we care? Because Woody is rescued by Buzz, voiced by Tim Allen, who starred in the TV show Home Improvement whose main brand is – you guessed it – Binford!
