Here’s what my brother does in his spare time. He looks for Hidden Mickeys on Disney cartoons. Okay, not really. But I guess he looks for interesting stuff in those cartoons, such as insider humor. For instance, considering a lot of Pinoys work for Pixar, they’re bound to leave identifiable or distinguishable features that are notably Pinoy.
In Finding Nemo,
… remember the dentist guy? notice his name. it’s P. Shermann. And his name was constantly repeated in the movie, by Dory. Hmm.. What’s up with the name, and what’s so Filipino about it?
P. Shermann”¦ Peesherman”¦ Feesherman.. Fisherman”¦
What about The Incredibles?
… try to recall the name of the island, the automated aircraft which brought Mr.Incredible to the island mentioned it, if I’m not mistaken.
Nomanisan.. Nomanisan island”¦ No Man Is An Island”¦
Of course, they’re puns. But I would tend to think that only Pinoys could think up this stuff, with our flair for laughing at ourselves for mispronouncing stuff!
There are probably more. It’s easter egg hunting season, everyone! Bring out those Pixar/Disney DVD’s!
