Have you seen Pixar's Inside Out yet? If you haven't, what in the world have you been up to? Pixar managed a huge return to form with Inside Out. It had the heart and emotionality of the first few heartbreaking minutes of Up, the memorable team of characters of the Toy Story films, the spirit of Finding Nemo, the inventiveness of Wall-E, and the animation and fun of The Incredibles. In short, it wasn't Cars 2 and, don't worry, it as full of Easter eggs that eagle-eyed Pixar fans surely spotted.

Inside Out is an incredibly dense film with heart, soul, and a bevy of Easter eggs, hidden features, and references to other Pixar movies. It, being a Pixar film, also has an incredible amount of Easter eggs. Short of maybe Marvel Studios, no one does Easter eggs like Pixar and they did not disappoint with their latest offering. The Pixar Pizza Truck? Check. A113? Check. John Ratzenberger? Check. And that's just the tip of the iceberg.

These are the best Easter eggs from Pixar's Inside Out! Vote up the best hidden features from this instant classic Pixar film below!

    That Chinese Food Is Everywhere In Pixar

    During the dinner scene where Riley has her first meltdown (when Anger takes over), and when we meet the emotions in the parents' heads, they are all eating Chinese Food.

    You may just recognize the logo on the boxes; it’s actually a very long-running Pixar Easter egg. Most notably seen in A Bug’s Life as Manny’s Chinese Cabinet of Metamorphosis, that same food box has also appeared in Toy Story 2, Monsters, Inc., and Ratatouille.
