Disney wouldn’t be Disney without their hidden Mickeys in the most unexpected, unnoticeable places in every movie. But these aren’t the only kinds of Easter eggs we can expect to find in our favorite cartoons. Some animators have fun by hiding a lot of cool things in their films, including references. That’s why even if you’re watching a cartoon for the millionth time, there’s still something new to hunt for — just keep your eyes wide open because once you blink, it’s gone.
