    "The Incredibles" Is A Flawless Pixar Movie, And Here Are 25 Details That Prove It

    "Honey, where's my super suit?"

    1. First, when Bob is looking at his GPS at the beginning of the film, some of the streets are named after real streets that surround Pixar Studios in California.

    2. When Buddy, voiced by Jason Lee, appears in Mr. Incredible's car, Mr. Incredible thinks his name could be Brodie — Jason Lee played Brodie in Mallrats.

    3. When the thief dumps out a woman's purse, you can spot a Mr. Incredible Pez dispenser.

    4. At Bob and Helen's wedding, the superheroes sitting in the second row are Dynaguy, Stratogale, Thunderhead, and Meta Man, all of the supers Edna Mode mentions when explaining why capes are dangerous.

    In front of them, you can also spot Gazerbeam, Edna, and Rick.

    5. The stained glass at the church where Bob and Helen get married matches Mr. Incredible's logo.

    6. You can also spot that Bob doodled his Mr. Incredible logo on a piece of paper in his home office — it's right next to notes that say "Call principal" and "Take car to the shop and fix water heater."

    7. If you look closely, the courtroom sketches of Mr. Incredible are drawn by Peter Sohn — he's an animator who worked on The Incredibles, Ratatouille, The Good Dinosaur, and other Pixar films.

    8. Bob's office is so cramped because he actually has a giant pillar taking up a ton of space.

    9. While we are never told the exact year The Incredibles is set in, you can see that Bob's newspaper has the date May 16, 1962, on it.

    Meaning that supers were put into hiding around 1947.

    10. Also, when Mr. Incredible finds Syndrome's file on Elastigirl, it shows that her last active record was Nov. 13, 1955.

    This date could mean that Helen continued to use her superpowers long after the government hid supers. Also, Helen mentions that they've had to move a few times because people learned of their powers.

    11. When they are listening to the police scanner, Bob and Lucius are parked between Andy's restaurant and Luxo Deli — Andy is a reference to Toy Story, while Luxo refers to the Pixar lamp.

    12. When Bob and Lucius are caught in the jewelry store, the moment with the cop is a nod to a scene with Samuel L. Jackson in Die Hard With a Vengeance.

    13. The Insuricare memo on Mr. Huph's desk tells employees that they will have to "self-expense all office supplies," "All parking will now be metered by the hour," and "Electricity consumption and all telephone charges" will be deducted from their paychecks because of "financial cut-backs."

    14. However, later in the memo, Insuricare states that it's had the "highest profit in years."

    15. On Bob's desk, there's a framed photo of Bob holding a large shark — the shark is meant to look like Bruce from Finding Nemo.

    16. Also on his desk, you can spot a jar with a label that reads, "Bullets that bounced off my chest."

    17. Among Bob's Mr. Incredible memorabilia, you can see the Rock 'Em Sock 'Em Robots, who appeared in Toy Story 2 when the toys searched Al's office.

    18. When you type in Mirage's number on a phone keypad, minus the area code, it spells "SUPRHRO," aka "Superhero."

    19. Bob's new license plate reading "LR0415" could be a nod to Lou Romano, who was born April 15 and voiced Linguini in Ratatouille and also voiced Dash's teacher in The Incredibles.

    Lou also worked in the animation department on several Pixar films.

    20. When Edna walks Helen through her design studio, you can see that the threads she used for the Parrs' super suits are still out.

    21. When Mr. Incredible is looking through the terminated-superhero files, you can see that Downburst's powers include "gaseous expulsion," aka farts and burps.

    22. After they fall into the ocean, Helen knows to move out of the way of the falling plane debris because you can see her spot the reflection in the water.

    23. After being captured, Mr. Incredible is held on level A1 in cellblock 13. When combined, it creates A113, which is the classroom used by students of graphic design and character animation at the California Institute of the Arts.

    A113 is hidden in every Pixar film in some way.

    24. During the battle with the robot, you can see a 1951 Hudson Hornet — which is the same model as Doc Hudson from Cars — behind Mr. Incredible.

    The Incredibles was released two years before Cars.

    25. And finally, the two men admiring Frozone and the Incredibles are played by Frank Thomas and Ollie Johnston, two Disney animators who worked on films like Pinocchio, Cinderella, and Peter Pan.
