'Toy Story 3' Fun Facts!!!

Here's some trivia about 'Toy Story 3' that's floating around:

The pins on the map in Andy's room correspond to the hometowns of 'Toy Story 3' production staff.

A few pieces of art hanging on the walls in Andy's room were actually created by 'Toy Story 3' art coordinator Erin Magill when she was in high school.

Andy has a banner hanging on one of the walls in his room that reads 'P.U.' P.U. stands for Pixar University, a professional-development program for Pixar employees.

Above Andy's closet is a street sign for W. Cutting Blvd., the street on which Pixar's original headquarters were based.

Look closely -- hidden in Andy's bedroom is a hint at a new character in next year's 'Cars 2'.

The number A113, which refers to John Lasseter, Brad Bird, Pete Docter and Andrew Stanton's former classroom at CalArts, makes an appearance in every Pixar film. Despite the years that have passed, Andy's mom hasn't changed her license plate, which still reads A113. In 'Toy Story 3', however, Andy's mom has a new license plate frame that reads 'Tiger Pride', which is a reference to director Lee Unkrich's hometown of Chagrin Falls, Ohio, and his high school mascot, the Tiger.

The Pizza Planet Truck, which first made an appearance in the original 'Toy Story', has made a cameo in nearly every Pixar film. It also appears in 'Toy Story 3', providing a bumpy ride to some traveling toys.

I knew that.
