Disney movies and cartoons are hiding some secrets from us… And you probably never noticed that!

At the end of the credits for “Frozen”, Disney issued a statement on Kristoff’s belief that all men eat their own boogers.

Sid, the villian from the first “Toy Story” makes an apperance as a garbageman in “Toy Story 3.”

Scar is the lion that Hercules kills for one of his trials and then wears as a trophy.

The vultures in “The Jungle Book” are based on and were intended to be voiced by The Beatles but schedules conflicted.

A postcard sent by Carl and Ellie Fredricksen from UP, can be seen in “Toy Story 3”, on Andy’s notice board. This could mean that Andy is related to Ellie.

Marilyn Monroe makes an appearance in the music video for “Zero to Hero” from “Hercules”

Many early Disney characters are motherless because of the guilt that Walt felt over his mother’s death in 1938. After the success of Snow White, Walt bought a home for his parents. A faulty heating system in the home led to the death of Flora Disney by carbon monoxide poisoning.

The offical voices of Mickey and Minnie Mouse were Wayne Allwine and Russi Taylor – a married couple.

“A113” is a mysterious code that appears in not just one, but nearly every Pixar and Disney movie ever made.

The number is actually the room at the California Institute of Arts where many Disney and Pixar animators learned their craft.

When Jessie (Joan Cusack) first meets Woody (Tom Hanks), she exclaims, “Sweet mother of Abraham Lincoln!” Abraham Lincoln’s mother was Nancy Hanks, a blood relative of Tom Hanks.

The old heretic in “Hunchback of Notre Dame” is Jafar from “Aladdin” in his old man disguise.

To save time and money, Disney used to recycle animations that they had already created.

The most prolific example of this was in “Robin Hood”, which had a relatively low budget of $1.5 million.

According to his animator, Beast is the combination of seven different animals.

Glen Keane also said that “Beast actually has a rainbow bum but nobody knows that but Belle.”

Tiger roars were used in the “Lion King” because lions weren’t loud enough.

Aladdin was modeled after Tom Cruise and Ariel was based on Alyssa Milano.

The voice of Boo in “Monsters Inc.”, Mary Gibbs, was just a toddler at the time. The production team had a hard time getting her to record, so they followed her around the studio and pieces Boo’s dialogue together from things she said while she was playing.

During the song “I Won’t Say I’m In Love” in “Hercules”, the muses sing while appearing as marble busts. They are in the same positions as the singing heads from the “Haunted Mansion” ride.

The peddler in “Aladdin” was originally planned to be revealed as the Genie at the end of the movie. This was why Robin Williams voiced him and also why the peddler and the genie share common appearances – including only four fingers.

Nearly every Pixar film references Apple because it was founded by Steve Jobs

In “Toy Story 2,” there’s a single frame which takes a lighthearted joke at Canada. The “How to Defeat Zurg” is priced $4.95 American and $50.00 Canadian.

This single frame from “Frozen” took more than 132 hours – or five days – to complete.

Dug from “Up” makes a shadow apperance in Ratatouille

In the video release of “The Rescuers”, a photo of a topless woman was hidden away in two frames. This led to Disney having to recall 3.4 million copies of the movie.

If you look closely at “Brave” you can see the old witch has a wood carving of Sulley from “Monsters Inc.”

She can also be seen whittling the Pizza Planet truck.

The truck makes another cameo in “WALL-E”

It can also be spotted in “Cars”, “Bug’s Life”, “Ratatouille”, “Monsters Inc.”, “Up” and “Finding Nemo”

Wall-E is named after Walter Elias Disney.

The final scene in “Atlantis: The Lost Empire” pans out from a shot of the characters to reveal a newly rebuilt Atlantis. This scene was created by combining hundreds of carefully drawn 24-inch pieces of paper into a massive piece of paper which measured 18,000 inches.

When the gorillas pick up Professor Porter in “Tarzan”, a small plushie of Little Brother from “Mulan” falls out of his pocket.

In “Tarzan”, the china set from Beauty and the Best makes an appearance.

To achieve a natural skin tone for Snow White, real rouge cosmetics were applied to the animated cells.

Sulley from Monsters Inc has more than 2.3 million individual hairs, which are all animated. A single frame of the big guy took 12 hours to produce.

The toolbox on top of the milk crate that Woody is trapped in is a Binford, the same type of tool that Tim Allen used on his television show ”Home Improvement.”

During the production of “Snow White” and “Bambi”, Walt Disney kept a menagerie of animals on the studio lot as live reference for the animators.

Mortimer Mouse was the name originally meant for Mickey, but Walt’s wife convinced him to change it because Mortimer sounded pompous. Mortimer Mouse would later become a rival character for Mickey in “Mickey’s Once Upon a Christmas”

The voice of Eeyore is also the voice of Transformers’ Optimus Prime.

Walt Disney’s honorary Oscar for Snow White looks like this…

“Can You Feel the Love Tonight” was originally supposed to be sung by Timon and Pumbaa.

And, Pumbaa was the first Disney character to ever fart.

Producers originally wanted Sean Connery to voice Mufasa.

In 101 Dalmatians Pongo has 72 spots, and Perdita has 68. Yes, someone counted.

Disney was sued by a biologist for the “defamation of hyenas” in “The Lion King.”

Dwarf names that didn’t make the cut in “Snow White” were: Jumpy, Deafy, Dizzy, Wheezy, Hickey, Baldy, Gabby, Nifty, Sniffy, Swift, Lazy, Puffy, Stuffy, Tubby, Shorty, and Burpy.

Bernard from “The Rescuers” suffers from triskaidekaphobia, or fear of the number 13.

Why do people in Britain drive on the left side

700 years ago everybody used the English  system, and if distressing numbers of us have proven fickle in the centuries since, that’s no reason to dump on the Britsdrive on the left side.

In the Middle Ages you kept to the left for the simple reason that you never knew who you’d meet on the road in those days. You wanted to make sure that a stranger passed on the right so you could go for your sword in case he proved unfriendly.

This custom was given official sanction in 1300 AD, when Pope Boniface VIII invented the modern science of traffic control by declaring that pilgrims headed to Rome should keep left.

The papal system prevailed until the late 1700s, when teamsters in the United States and France began hauling farm products in big wagons pulled by several pairs of horses.   These wagons had no driver’s seat. Instead the driver sat on the left rear horse, so he could keep his right arm free to lash the team.  Since you were sitting on the left, naturally you wanted everybody to pass on the left so you could look down and make sure you kept clear of the other guy’s wheels. Ergo, you kept to the right side of the road. The first known keep-right law in the U.S. was enacted in Pennsylvania in 1792, and in the ensuing years many states and Canadian provinces followed suit.

In France the keep-right custom was established in much the same way. An added impetus was that, this being the era of the French Revolution and all, people figured, hey, no pope gonna tell ME what to do.  Later Napoleon enforced the keep-right rule in all countries occupied by his armies. The custom endured even after the empire was destroyed.

The trend among nations over the years has been toward driving on the right, but Britain has done its best to stave off global homogenization.  Its former colony India remains a hotbed of leftist sentiment, as does Indonesia, which was occupied by the British in the early 19th century. The English minister to Japan achieved the coup of his career in 1859 when he persuaded his hosts to make keep-left the law in the future home of Toyota and Mitsubishi.

Nonetheless, the power of the right has been growing steadily. When Germany annexed Austria in 1938, it brutally suppressed the latter’s keep-left rights, and much the same happened in Czechoslovakia in 1939.  The last holdouts in mainland Europe, the Swedes, finally switched to the right in 1967 because most of the countries they sold Saabs and Volvos to were righties and they got tired of having to make different versions for domestic use and export.

The current battleground is the island of Timor. The Indonesians, who own west Timor, have been whiling away the hours exterminating the native culture of the east Timorese. The issue? Some say it’s religion, some say it’s language, but I know the truth: in east Timor they drive on the right, in west Timor they drive on the left.
