1. Check out Andy’s mum’s licence plate number in Toy Story.
2. It says “A113”, just like this door number in Monsters University.
3. It’s the courtroom number in Up too.
7. You can just about make it out here in Cars.
9. And here.
10. It’s the code that tells the ship never to return to Earth in Wall-E.
It also (sort of) spells part of Wall-E’s name (WA11-3).

12. But… what does it all mean?
13. Well, “A113” was a classroom number at the California Institute of the Arts.

17. It’s featured in live-action movies such as The Avengers, Hunger Games: Catching Fire, and Mission: Impossible – Ghost Protocol.
18. TV show animators have even smuggled “A113” into episodes of American Dad.

20. In fact, Simpsons director Brad Bird went on to include it in every single film he’s ever directed.
21. Which include The Incredibles, Ratatouille, and The Iron Giant (below).
22. And yes, I did say “A113” has appeared in every Pixar movie. What do you mean, you never saw it in Brave?
Yes, you did. It’s carved above the door in the witch’s cottage. “ACXIII” is “A113” in Roman numerals.
23. Pretty cool, huh?
