While Disney’s Zootopia is busy breaking box office records, it’s also breaking records for how many Easter eggs and references can be jammed into a movie. Modern Disney films are known for making references to previous movies, but the amount of Disney references in Zootopia is staggering. One animator said that to truly catch all of the Easter eggs in Zootopia, you would have to go frame by frame. This list compiles many of the references to past and future Disney films, as well as some random nods to ice cream companies from the east coast and a concept of biology that might have something to do with mice. Prepare to go down the rabbit hole and take a look at all the Zootopia Easter eggs that you definitely missed.

Trying to catch all of the Easter eggs in an animated Disney film is like trying to map the known universe: you’re never going to get everything. When you have a massive team of writers and animators like Disney films do, you’re bound to end up with a whole lot of in-jokes and references that are indecipherable to a regular viewer. And depending on what age group you fall into, the Easter eggs might not even make sense to you. That’s why this list catalogs all of the Easter eggs you didn’t catch in Zootopia.

Vote on the coolest Easter eggs in Disney’s Zootopia, and make sure to share any references you caught that we may have missed.

Blink and you'll miss it, but the music on Judy's iPod looks pretty good. She's got songs by the Fur Fighters, Fleetwood Yak, and The Beagles. But the artist she ends up listening to, Gazelle (played by Shakira), is an Easter egg wrapped inside of an Easter egg, with her Disney-referencing titles like  "Part of Your Wool," "Ara-bunny Nights," and, "Let it Goat."

These Zootopia guys and their Frozen references! In both films, Alan Tudyk voices a character named Duke Weaselton, the only difference is that in one film he's an actual Duke, and in the other he's a weasel who sells bootleg DVDs.
