Hidden secrets, aka Easter Eggs, are hidden treats left by moviemakers. All started back in the ‘70s when Atari, the video game maker, didn’t give credit to their game designers. One of them, Warren Robinett, added a secret code in his game “Created by Warren Robinett”. Today, you can even see Easter Eggs in popular animated movies.

Here are 20 Easter Eggs in the most popular animated show:

1. The carpet in “Toy Story”

The carpet in Sid’s house in “Toy Story” was inspired by “The Shining”. “The Shining” is one of the most famous horror movies in history.

2. The characters’ names in “Frozen”

When the characters’ names from “Frozen” are put together, they sound like Hans Christian Andersen. “Frozen” is based on Hans Christian Andersen fairy tale “The Snow Queen” which was published in 1845.

3. Singing in “Frozen 2”

Kristoff’s song “Lost in the Woods” was invoking lots of “ ‘80s rock songs. Multiple Svens coming up behind Kristoff when he was singing, is a reference to Queen’s “Bohemian Rhapsody”.

4. Wolverine suit in “Flushed Away”

When Roddy (voiced by Hugh Jackman) is deciding what to wear, he pulls out a Wolverine suit. Believe it or not, Hugh Jackman, who played Wolverine, never wore the classic Wolverine suit from the comics. He even said that he might finally wear it for Halloween. Just do it, man!

5. The classic Macintosh in “Coco”

In the land of the dead in “Coco”, the civil servants use the classic Macintosh. When Mamá Imelda tries to find out why she can't leave the Land of the Dead to go visit her family, the clerk assisting her uses a Macintosh computer to look her up. This is a tribute to Steve Jobs who made Pixar possible.

6. Sid the Sloth in “Robots”

In “Robots”, there is a robot that looks like Side the Sloth from “Ice Age”. A robotic version of Sid the Sloth appears when Rodney first enters Robot City. Specifically, when he approaches the street performer.

7. Justin Timberlake in “Shrek 2”

In “Shrek 2”, Fiona has a poster of Sir Justin, modeled after Justin Timberlake, in her bedroom. Cameron Diaz who voiced Fiona was dating Justin at the time. I guess Shrek should be worried!

8. Binford Tools in “Toy Story”

The tool box that Sid uses to weigh down the egg crate over Woody in “Toy Story” has a “Binford” logo on it. This is a reference to Binford Tools, the sponsor of Tim Allen's TV show “Tool Time” on his show “Home Improvement.”

9. Moana and Stitch with a big leaf

Moana saving the baby turtle with a big leaf is a nod to Stitch using a big leaf to give shade to turtles in “Lilo and Stitch”. Some people say that this could be a coincidence, but Disney’s attention to detail says that that couldn’t be just a coincidence.

10. Margo’s shirts in the “Despicable Me”

Margo’s shirts in the “Despicable Me” movies are hints to future movies such as “The Grinch” and “The Lorax”. In the first “Despicable Me” movie, Margo is wearing a Lorax on her shirt. In “Despicable me 3”, Margo wears a shirt with the Grinch on it.

11. The pictures of Esther and Bolt in “Big Hero 6”

In “Big Hero 6”, at the police desk the photo frames contain the pictures of Esther and Bolt from “Bolt”.

12. A poster in “Angry Birds” movie

In “Angry Birds” movie, Mighty Eagle’s place contains a poster of Hotel California “eagles”, as a reference to the band’s song.

13. Apple Store in “Angry Birds Movie”

There is an Apple Store in the “Angry Birds” movie. A bird is putting an apple to its ear, like a phone.

14. The sun with the baby face

The sun with the baby face in “Boss Baby” is a shout out to the show “Teletubbies”.

15. Africa on Alex’s paw

In “Madagascar 2”, Alex has a mark on his paw that looks like Africa.

16. Mrs. Potts in “Frozen 2”

In “Frozen 2”, Olaf’s charades feature a few Easter Eggs, one of them is Mrs. Potts from “Beauty and the Beast”.

17. Indiana Jones’ golden idol in “Despicable Me 3”

Gru is stealing Indiana Jones’ golden idol in “Despicable Me 3” movie.

18. Coffee mugs and a tie in “The Lego Movie”

Lord Business from “The Lego Movie” wears coffee mugs on his head and a tie as a cape.

19. Totoro in “Zootopia”

Bunnyburrow in “Zootopia” looks like Totoro from “My Neighbor Totoro”.

20. Bomb Voyage in “Ratatouille”

Bomb Voyage, the villain in “The Incredibles”, does a street performance in “Ratatouille”. His name also appears on a newspaper that Colette is reading.

Sadly he passed away this year.

James Michael Tyler (Gunther)

Paul Rudd (Michael “Mike” Hannigan)

The best part of the love story between Mike and Phoebe is how they meet: Joey was supposed to introduce Phoebe to someone, but he totally forgets about it. When their double date starts, Joey improvises and claims to know, Mike. Of course, he didn’t have a friend by that name, so he starts yelling “Mike!” in the restaurant and that’s when Paul Rudd enters the scene. Besides Friends, Rudd has had a successful career as a comedian and now he is well-known for playing Ant-Man.

Paul Rudd (Michael “Mike” Hannigan)

Noelle and Cali Sheldon (Emma Geller-Green)

Tate Donovan (Joshua Bergin)

All the Vikings you know only their typical look. But some of them you would never recognize in real life. In this article you will see all the main characters in their Vikings look and how they look in real life!

Björn Lothbrok

Björn, also known as Bjorn Ironsideis the king of Kattegat. He is the son of Ragnar Lothbrok and Lagertha and the eldest of Ragnar's many sons. Also in reality a very handsome gentleman!

Harald "Finehair" Halfdansson

Harald "Finehair" Halfdansson is a Scandinavian warlord and king. His dream is to become the first king of all Norway. His brother is Halfdan! The audience is divided into two camps. Some love him, others don't like him at all. He looks much better without tattoos.

Ubbe

Ubbe Ragnarsson is the first son of Ragnar Lothbrok and Aslaug. He is the second oldest of Ragnar's sons. He later marries Torvi. Without tattoos on his face and his typical Vikings look, he is almost unrecognizable.

Margrethe

Margrethe was Ubbe's first wife. Unfortunately, she went insane in the course of the series and Ubbe looked for a "replacement". With her yellow hair, she is not so easy to recognize anymore. In real life, she apparently has a significantly different look.

Rollo

Rollo of Normandy, originally known as Rollo Sigurdsson, is the older brother of Ragnar Lothbrok and the Duke of Normandy. Before his marriage, Rollo was known as a fearsome Viking warrior who had an impulsive streak and was plagued by internal struggles. This is what he looks like in real life.

Halfdan

Halfdan "the Black" Halfdansson was the ruthless younger brother of the Norwegian king Harald "Finehair". At the beginning of the series they were one heart and one soul. Nothing was more important to them than family, but even that was to change at some point. Without tattoos he is hardly recognizable.

Horik

Horik Gøtriksson is the king of Denmark. He forges an alliance with Ragnar, but sees Ragnar's ambitions as a threat to his own position. As so often, it's all about power in the end. After a visit to the barber & a shave, he is no longer easily recognized.

King Æthelwulf

King Æthelwulf Ecberting (Old English: ˈæðelwuɫf; means "noble wolf") is king of Wessex and Mercia and the son of King Ecbert. He was one of the Chrtists and his trust was tested over and over again. He does not look so different in everyday life.

Þórunn

Þórunn is a former servant who became a shieldmaiden. She is the first ex-wife of Björn. After training with Lagertha to become a shieldmaiden, Þorunn invites herself to move to Wessex with Ragnar's army, despite Björn's protests and concern for her safety. In reality, apparently, with a different hairstyle.

Ivar

Ivar Ragnarsson, also known as Ivar "the Boneless", is the youngest son of Ragnar Lothbrok and Aslaug. Arguably the most controversial character in the series, as most just didn't like him. But in the end, he too shows his true self! Would you still recognize him?

Hvitserk

Hvitserk Ragnarsson is the second son of Ragnar Lothbrok and Aslaug. He had to prove himself again and again and his character was often put to the test. After some knockdowns he finds his way back to such. He also looks like this in real life.

Athelstan

Athelstan means "noble stone") is a young Anglo-Saxon Christian monk who is kidnapped by Ragnar Lothbrok as a slave from the monastery of Lindisfarne. He is torn between the faith of the Vikings and that of Christianity, and becomes an advisor and friend to both Ragnar and King Ecbert. An attractive man with a beard and a new hairstyle!

Judith

Judith of Northumbria is the daughter of King Ælle of Northumbria and Queen Ealhswith and the wife of Prince Æthelwulf of Wessex. When he becomes king, she becomes his wife.

Aslaug

Aslaug Sigurdsdottir is the second wife of Ragnar Lothbrok. She is the former queen of Kattegat and the mother of Ubbe, Hvitserk, Sigurd and Ivar. She is believed to be a völva, which means that she can see the future through visions. She is harder to spot without the makeup!

Torvi

Torvi is a shieldmaiden and the former wife of Jarl Borg. She eventually marries Ubbe. In her private photos she presents herself clearly different, what a great woman!

Helga

Helga is the faithful lover and later wife of Floki. They have a daughter named Angrboda. In reality, you would probably not recognize her at all. Wouldn't you?

Jarl Borg

Jarl Borg is a grim Jarl of Götaland. His seat of power is in a village larger than Kattegat, located in the southern highlands of Götaland. In real life, however, he doesn't look so grim anymore.

Haraldson

Haraldson is the Count of Kattegat before Ragnar Lothbrok. He is madly in love with his wife Siggy. They have three children, a daughter named Thyri and two sons. Without a beard, he is not quite as easily recognized.

Floki

Floki Vilgerðarson is a boat builder and incorrigible crook, who is also the eccentric and closest friend of Ragnar Lothbrok. He is the husband of Helga, and they have a daughter named Angrboda. In real life, however, he looks considerably different with a bald head.

Lagertha

Lagertha is the first and former wife of Ragnar Lothbrok and the former queen of Kattegat. She is the mother of Björn. Lagertha is a Jarl and a fierce shieldmaiden. In everyday life, however, she doesn't look like a shieldmaiden at all. Wow!

The first part of the film was released in 2001. That was 20 years ago, as you can easily calculate. Accordingly, the actors have also changed in the last 2 decades. Let this article surprise you!

Galadriel was the " Lady " of the forests of Lothlórien, which she ruled together with her husband Celeborn. She was one of the greatest Elves in Middle Earth, surpassing almost all others in beauty, knowledge and power. She has aged absolutely magnificently.

Cate Blanchett at the age of 34 vs. 50 years

Aragorn II, son of Arathorn II and Gilraen, also known as Elessar and Strider. He was a great ranger and warrior, and as Isildur's heir he carried the shards of Narsil, which were reforged in the War of the Ring and renamed Flame of the West. He has grown a little grayer!

Viggo Mortensen at the age of 43 vs. 61 years

Boromir was a brave warrior from Gondor, known for his fighting ability and skill on the battlefield. He was the eldest son of Denethor II, who was steward of Gondor during the War of the Ring. Today clearly older.

Sean Bean at 42 vs. 61 years old

Gandalf the Grey, later known as Gandalf the White and originally called Olórin, was an Istar (wizard) sent to Middle Earth in the Third Age to fight the threat of Sauron. He was very old by then, but apparently he is still fit.

Ian McKellen at the age of 62 vs. 80 years

Legolas was a Sindarin elf who belonged to the Fellowship of the Ring in the Third Age. Son of the Elven King Thranduil of Mirkwood, Legolas was the Prince of Mirkwood, a messenger and a master marksman. without his long hair, he is hardly recognizable.

Orlando Bloom aged 24 vs 43

Samwise Gamgee, also known as Sam, was a hobbit from the Shire. He was the gardener and best friend of Frodo Baggins. Sam proved to be Frodo's closest and most reliable companion. It is not at all easy to recognize him today.

Sean Astin at age 35 vs. 49

Mauhúr was sent to reinforce Uglúk and the Uruk-hai scouts when they returned to Isengard with Merry and Pippin. He found them surrounded by Éomer's Rohirrim at the edge of Fangorn Forest, from where he led his Uruk-hai on an attack. So this is what he really looks like.

Robbie Magasiva at age 32 vs. 49

Gríma was the most important advisor to King Théoden of Rohan before he was exposed as an agent and spy of Saruman. He ends up being the assassin of Saruman in the final chapter of The Return of the King. He has grown considerably older.

Brad Dourif at 52 vs. 70 years old

Pippin Gardner was a hobbit from the Shire and one of the thirteen children of Samwise Gamgee. With his new hairstyle, he is nevertheless visually somewhat different than before.

Tommy Flanagan at the age of 34 vs. 51

Gimli was a respected dwarven warrior in Middle-earth during the Great Years. He belonged to the Fellowship of the Ring and was the only one of the dwarves willing to fight alongside the elves in the war against Sauron at the end of the Third Age. Would you still recognize him today?

John Rhys-Davies at the age of 59 vs. 76 years

Sharku was an orc veteran from Isengard who led Saruman's warg riders. He only appears in the film version of The Two Towers. This is what he looks like in real life.

Jed Brophy at age 38 vs. 56

Théoden was the seventeenth king of Rohan and the last of the Second Line of the Royal House of Eorl. At that time he was already 58 years old - today he is already 72!

Bernard Hill at the age of 58 vs. 72 years

Merry Gardner was the fourth child and second son of Samwise Gamgee and his wife Rosie (née Cotton) Gamgee. He had nine younger siblings. Because of his old hairstyle, his ears never stood out!

Dominic Monoghan at 25 vs. 43 years old

Saruman, also known as Saruman the White, was the first of the Order of Istar (Wizards) to come to Middle-earth in the Third Age as an emissary of the Valar. He was also the leader of the wizards and the White Council who opposed Sauron. He has not changed that much.

Christopher Lee at the age of 80 vs. 93 years

Gamling, sometimes referred to as "Gamling the Old," was a man from Rohan and may have been Erkenbrand's second-in-command. This is what he looks like by now.

Bruce Hopkins at age 47 vs. 64

Frodo Baggins, son of Drogo Baggins, was a hobbit from the Shire in the late Third Age. He was and still is Tolkien's most famous character, as he plays the main role in the quest for the Ring. He looks unchanged!

Elijah Wood at the age of 20 vs. 39 years old

Elrond half-elf, Lord of Rivendell, was one of the powerful Elven rulers of ancient times who lived in Middle-earth from the First Age to the beginning of the Fourth Age. He was the father of Elladan and Elrohir and Arwen Undómiel, later wife of Aragorn II. With beard a very different man!

Hugo Weaving at the age of 41 vs. 60 years old

Of course, Sauron has never been seen without his mask in the film adaptations, but here you can see how the actor behind Sauron looks in reality. Did you imagine him like this?

Sala Baker at 25 vs. 43 years old

Bilbo Baggins was a hobbit from the Shire, the main character in The Hobbit and a minor character in The Lord of the Rings. He is one of the oldest actors and you can clearly see that now.

Iam Holm at the age of 70 vs. 88 years

Gollum, originally named Sméagol (or Trahald), was initially a Stoor, one of the three early Hobbit types. The name Gollum was derived from the sound of his disgusting gurgling, retching cough. This is what he really looks like.

Andy Serkis at age 37 vs. 56.
