We were probably in junior school when Disney released its best-ever animated superhero film, The Incredibles. By now we’ve all lost count of the number of times we’ve rewatched this family entertainer. However, our innocence back then was a victim of Disney’s super clever easter eggs that were scattered throughout the movie.
Not just The Incredibles but its sequel as well was packed with Easter eggs and references that one couldn’t catch with a single viewing. Take a look at 20 of the best easter eggs that we found in The Incredibles and its sequel The Incredibles 2
1. In Incredibles 2 (2018), the colored emblems that we see on the pilot’s uniform are abstract depictions of every single Pixar film up to that movie
2. In The Incredibles (2004) At Helen and Bob Parr’s wedding, we see four superheroes seated in the second row. These are the same four superheroes Edna says died because of their capes, Thunderhead, Stratogayle, Meta Man, and Dynaguy.
3. In The Incredibles (2004), When Frozone asked his wife, “Honey, where’s my super suit?” he wasn’t referring to her by any pet name – it’s his wife’s actual first name
4. In The Incredibles(2004), Bomb Voyage was a French mime artist who had turned into a criminal. In Ratatouille (2007), we see the same dude as an actual mime artist working the streets of Paris. Brad Bird was the director of both films.
5. In ‘The Incredibles’ (2004) The suit which Elastagirl’s initially wore was red in color and Mr. Incredible’s suit was blue. That explains why they named their first child ‘Violet’ (Blue + Red = Violet)
5. In the Incredibles 2, the painting which we see behind Helen in her hotel room is an illustration of her separation from her family.
6. In The Incredibles, there was a hero whose powers included flying and defeating enemies with his farts
7. In the Incredibles (2004) Mr. Incredible has a jar full of bullets kept on his desk that were fired on him but had bounced off his chest.
8. In The Incredibles (2004), the costume that Buddy designs for himself at home sees a combination of Mr. Incredibles “i” symbol with a crescent to form a “b”
9. In ‘Incredibles 2’ (2018), the new super-suit which Elastic Girl dons was designed by Devtech. However, the fact that that it later gets damaged proves how superior Edna Mode’s designing ability was
10. In The Incredibles, Kari suggests that listening to “Mozart makes babies smarter.” Later in the film when she turns on Mozart for Jack-Jack, you see his eyes widen, and subsequently, we see his powers for the very first time.
11. In ‘Incredibles 2’ (2018), The Usher who escorts Frozone was actually voiced by Usher (we mean the singer-songwriter Usher)
12. The cubical in which Bob sits in The Incredibles (2004) has more than half of its space occupied by a pillar. That’s the main which is why it’s so cramped
13. In the film ‘Coco’ (2017), Miguel and Hector walk by a poster that has a snapshot of The Incredibles family. However, they too are dead in the poster.
14. In the Incredibles (2004), If you look carefully at Buddy’s eyes, the inner area of his eyemask is colored with a marker because he doesn’t know how to properly darken them with makeup
15. In The Incredibles 2 (2018) when Jack-Jack phases into another dimension, it’s apparently the Monsters Inc. universe where he goes to
16. In The Incredibles (2004), the scene where Frozone faces a policeman is clearly a reference to Die Hard 3. Remember what happened Samuel L. Jackson had a phone in his hand in that film? Frozone is voiced by Samuel L. Jackson as well
17. Duke Caboom from Toy Story 4 was one of the toys that Jack-Jack’s had in ‘Incredibles 2’
18. The Incredibles (2004) really gave out the theme of the entire movie in just the name of an island. The Nomanisan Island, is a reference to the phrase “No man is an island” meaning people are worse off when they are lonely and isolated and must stay and work together.
19. It’s hard to believe but this scene where Frozone sees a helicopter twirl and crash into a building was replicated in the Avengers: Infinity War.

20. During one of the final fight scenes in The Incredibles (2004), a 1951 Hudson Hornet can be seen parked in the background. The fun part is that this car was in the film before the release of Cars (2006)
