In an episode that featured a lot of eggs, it only seems right to also talk about eggs. Maybe not Frog Lady Eggs, but easter eggs. Easter eggs in the truest form – clues or homages to other things.
What is an Easter Egg?
If you search Easter Egg, you will likely get the definition for our favorite holiday tradition. Check option number 2.
an unexpected or undocumented feature in a piece of computer software or on a DVD, included as a joke or a bonus.
Easter Egg #2
Todd and Eric referenced how last year there were separate stand-alone (side quest) episodes that turned out to mean something in the very end. We wonder if Frog Lady episode will do the same.
Fun Easter Eggs in Cinema
When DVD’s came out, you had the technology to skip to specific scenes and exact moments in film. Yes, doing it on the VCR was possible, but you better have a very fast trigger finger. Now with digital, you can take full advantage and catch every little easter egg put on film.
Three Men and a Baby Ghost
If you aren’t familiar with the eerie ghost child in the window of Three Men and a Baby, well you were missing out. This scene forced plenty of rewinds in the Hersey house. It’s not everyday you see a real ghost in a Disney movie.
Pac-Man in Tron
When you make a movie about going into a video game, you should include one of the classics. When the characters look at the videogame map, you will see our little Pac-man friend.
Star Wars in Raiders of the Lost Ark
George Lucas and Harrison Ford were part of both franchises. We all knew that. But little did we know that C-3P0 and R2-D2 were included. You can see them as hieroglyphics on the wall when Indy discovers the ark.
Rapunzel (Tangled) in Frozen
Open up the gates and let Rapunzel in. Right before Elsa goes crazy and starts nearly impaling the kingdom, you can see Rapunzel and Flyn walking into the castle, ready to party.
Actual Eggs in Rocky Horror Picture Show
Yes, chocolate eggs are scattered in scenes throughout the movie. Is this where the term Easter Egg comes from? We don’t know. That would require several extra Google searches and let’s face it – we’ve searched enough.
