The Pizza Planet Truck.

One of the many, many wonderful things about Pixar is their penchant for recurring Easter-eggs for the audience to spot. Whether it's a Buzz Lightyear popping up in the Dentist waiting room in Finding Nemo, or the motor home from A Bug's Life appearing in Monsters Inc, Pixar always leave gifts for the eagle-eyed viewer.

Of these little gems, only three (by my reckoning) feature in every film. One is of course the supreme voice-talents of John Ratzenberger, who has cameoed in all of Pixar's films. The second is the numerous A113's hidden in many scenes. The other, perhaps lesser known stalwart is the Pizza Planet delivery truck. Since Buzz & Woody first hitched a ride in the first Toy Story, it has featured in consistently, if only for the briefest of moments.

Have you spotted them all?
