Why every cartoon has this SECRET code “A113”?
We have all grown up accompanied by cartoons, such as Toy Story, Finding Nemo, Monsters S.A and much more. Isn’t that right? There was a lot of such stories in our lives and we loved it. What’s more, even if you’re an adult, you probably love coming back to these animated stories to see them once again. And no matter how many times you watched these productions, we are pretty sure that you haven’t noticed one very peculiar thing.
It seems that our title reveals all, but we’re going to say it one more time: it’s a fact that in a lot of different animations (Disney, Pixar and others) there is a secret code that keeps constantly appearing. This article will tell the truth about this mysterious element. Don’t miss it! Here comes the first photo to prove it true: look at the licence plate in Toy Story. A113.

It’s not enough evidence for you? There you go. Another proof: look at this capture from the movie A Bug’s Life. There is the code A113 written on the box.
We have to admit that Disney cartoonists are specialists in hiding secret messages that don’t draw attention. However they are for everyone that has the necessary knowledge to know what it’s all about. And about the code A113… In this picture you can see the code A113 on the diver’s camera in Finding Nemo.
In Pixar production - The Incredibles - code A113 is also present as Mr. Incredible’s coordinates.
In another Pixar masterpiece - Cars - there’s also A113 hidden. In this case, it’s on the train’s “cheeks”.
Another capture from Cars: the licence plate of the tow… and there it is! A113!
Do you remember a very popular cartoon named Ratatouille? In brief, it’s about the intrepid adventures of a rat. The secret code A113 is also present here. It’s the number on the ear tag of one of the rats.
We have to admit that the cartoonists of Wall-E weren’t too subtle hiding the A113. What’s more, it stands out this time since it’s the protocole number of abandoning Earth in the movie.
The same number is presented in the audience room in Up.
Let's go back one more time to our Cars. It seems that cartoonists love this movie so much that they hid A113 almost everywhere. Even on the tail of the airplane.
More and more of Cars :) However this time the A113 has been hidden in a better way (honestly, comparing to what they did in Wall-E, this time everything seems well hidden). If you find the A113 by yourself, you can give yourself a cookie as a reward :)
Let’s switch now to the adventures of the famous ginger girl. The code A113 is also hidden in Brave. However, the cartoonists were very ingenious this time: they wrote the numerals in Roman style. ACXIII is how ancient Romans would write the A113. What a surprise!
As we’ve mentioned in the introduction, Monsters S.A. has also this mysterious code hidden somewhere. Do you still remember our question asked back then? We wanted to know the meaning of this code and why cartoonists keep hiding it in every animation they do. Let's explain that in brief. Before we do so, look at the door. There’s the number once more :)
It seems like it’s everywhere. Even in other productions that don’t belong to Pixar, such as Lilo & Stitch.
Or The Iron Giant. You can’t see exactly the three digits, but even though, you can easily assume that it’s A113.
One of the productions of Hyperion Pictures published by Walt Disney and named The Brave Little Toaster also hides the numer. Another door A113.
The cartoonists of The Simpsons also decided to show this code. What’s the purpose of all this effort?
Famous TV series such as American Dad also borrowed the idea and used a licence plate with A113.
The princess from The Princess and the Frog travels in a tram with A113. What is the solution to this puzzle? Is there something that cartoonists try to tell us?
A113 in real life is the number of one of the classes at California Institute of Arts. It’s the place where first grade graphic designers learned their design and animation skills and where many of them found their true passion. Putting A113 in their productions is a tribute to that class. Without it, they wouldn’t be able to reach their dreams. Isn’t that great?
