Continuing with the Aardman easter eggs, I watched Flushed Away to see the hidden details. This was the best film so far, probably because they could add whatever they wanted because it was CGI, rather than having to make it physically for stop motion.
We start with a 50 Cent reference. Introducing to you 40 Pence!
Two Aardman books including Cracking Animation.
A Tail of Two Cats. Alex the Lion from Madagascar and the Cat from Creature Comforts.
Some more Creature Comfort characters.
Some recognisable DVDs including Over the Hedge, Shrek, Antz, and Wallace and Gromit Curse of the Were Rabbit.
This looks like a fighting game with Feathers McGraw vs Preston. The question is who would you back and where do I get an arcade machine like that?
A Gromit Pencil topper available at all good ebay stores.
Surely another Gromit reference?
Gromit Plushie. Need I say more?
A sock monkey of the monkey from Madagascar.
An obvious reference to Dreamwork’s rival Pixar. Doesn’t really look like Nemo though.
These penguins sneak in everywhere.
The rabbits from Were Rabbit.
Rex the Runt, Aardman’s TV series gets a reference too.
Shaun also gets two nods.
We also get a Shrek reference.
Recognise this picture?
Or this one?
Or this Costume?
Two for one. A Wendolene picture and a Chicken Run DVD.
A newspaper reference to the Were Rabbit terrorising West Wallaby Street.
Last but not least, a Wolverine reference. Wolverine is played by Hugh Jackman, and so is Rodney, so why not have a Wolverine costume.
Thanks for reading. I have finally found all the other DVDs for the other Aardman films, so stay tuned Fishy Friends!
