I was suprised one of these wasn't around yet.
Whoever knows and adores the meaning behind this beautiful code, I salute you!
And then glomp you.
EDIT: Uhhh, a lot of you seem to think this thing started with Wall-E.
Nooooo, it's been around long before that. Pretty much every Pixar movie has had some kind of nod to it. It originally was derived from the animation room number at CalArts - a school that many "Pixarians" attended. Let's review all the places we've seen this number?
And let me know if I forgot anything.Toy Story
- The license plate number on numerous carsToy Story 2
- Mentioned in the airport over the speaker in "Lasset Air Flight A113" (Also a nod to the director, John Lasseter)The Incredibles
- The meeting room number in which Mr. Incredible is summoned to
- Referenced in the aircraft hanger the Incredibles sneak into, "A13"
- Seen when Helen sneaks into the control room and spots where her husband is being held in "section A1, cell 13"Cars
- Mater's license plate number
- The number on the train Lightning almost crashes withRatatouille
- The code on Git's ear tag (Git is the huuuuuuge and bulky rat that lives in Remy's colony)Wall-E
- The essential directive number logged into Auto's programmingUp
- I've only seen it twice, but I seem to remember it being a room number aboard The Spirit of Adventure
Also.....The Brave Little Toaster
- The room number of the Master (Rob's) apartmentLilo & Stitch
- The license plate number on numerous cars and trucks
My mind's a little off right now, so I know I forgot a few.
I'll add them as I remember them.
