'Monsters University': Pixar reveals Easter eggs and in-jokes

The Pizza Planet truck

Pixar creations apparently love their pizza.

As homage to Toy Story, Pixar’s first feature, most of the subsequent films from the studio have included at least a background reference to the battered yellow truck that ferried Buzz and Woody back to their owner Andy in the 1995 movie.

Turning up in Toy Story 2 and Toy Story 3 was easy enough, but finding a place for the truck in, say, the middle-ages of Brave presented a bit of a challenge. (The truck appeared as a carved wooden toy in the shop of the witch, whose magical abilities apparently include automotive design.)

Even though Monsters, Inc. and Monsters University are set in an alternate dimension, the Pizza Planet corporation must have excellent franchise representatives. You can see the truck parked off to the side during the JOX fraternity house party, when Mike is riding the purloined scare-pig around the frat houses on Greek Row.
