20 INSIDE OUT Fun Facts and Pixar Easter Eggs

It’s a habit. I can’t watch a Disney • Pixar film without looking for the hidden messages (also called Easter Eggs). You know, those fun bits that refer to previous movies, characters, etc. So of course, while I sat mesmerized by the color and sound of INSIDE OUT as it played before me on the screen at the historic El Captain Theater in Hollywood, I almost got so caught up in the film that I forgot to look for them (read: INSIDE OUT Movie Premiere: My Candid Celebrity Snapshots).

Bing Bong: “Inside Out” Fan Favorite? New Products & Collectibles

I’ve been reading social media posts over the last few days ever since the Disney * Pixar’s INSIDE OUT movie was released in theaters.

Kyle MacLachlan seems very relaxed and polished, and it’s not hard to imagine that is him at his core. He has small town roots here in Washington having grown up in Yakima in the 70’s. His slightly sarcastic humor is one I understand well having spent severals summers during High School cruising the “Ave” in Yakima. It’s highly likely he was one of the many fine looking boys riding with friends in fabulous Mustangs with their radios booming; the Ave was the place to be seen.
