Much like the Lost numbers, there’s a code that keeps popping up somewhere in every Pixar film: A113. It’s nothing sinister, but actually a secret handshake among animators. It was the classroom number of character animation students at the California Institute of the Arts, and many alum have used it in their professional works as a nod to their fellow graduates. Here’s where you can find it.
On the license plate of Andy’s mom’s car in Toy Story
On a box in A Bug’s Life
The diver’s camera in Finding Nemo
The coordinates of Mr. Incredible’s cell in The Incredibles
On a train and Mater’s license plate in Cars
A tag on one of the rats in Ratatouille
The code for the Abandon Earth protocol in WALL-E
Courtroom number in Up
On Siddley’s tail, a screen and again on Mater’s license plate in Cars 2.
Engraved in Roman numerals above a doorway in Brave.
On the door in Monsters University.
It also shows up in non-Pixar films and TV shows
To date, one has not been found in Monsters, Inc. Perhaps you can be the one who finds it?
