30 Hidden Details That Enable “Ratatouille” Leave Both Parents And Kids In Awe

Who doesn’t love Pixar movies? They’re fun, quirky, and always full of relatable characters – and if you’re anything like me, you’ve probably seen “Finding Nemo”, “Ratatouille”, and the “Toy Story” movies countless times.

In this post, I will talk about “Ratatouille”, a 2007 animated film made by Pixar and published by Walt Disney Pictures that stars Remy, a cute rat who dreams of being a cook. The film has become a modern classic over the years. And it is still loved by both children and adults today because of its inspirational tale and excellent French cuisine.

However, colorful characters and enthralling stories aren’t the only things that make Pixar big. It turns out Pixar loves to hide tiny details in their movies, including “Ratatouille”. Perhaps, you’ve watched this animated movie several times but didn’t recognize its easter eggs. So this post is for you. We gathered 30 hidden details in “Ratatouille” that even the sharpest of eyes could have missed.

Let’s check out the collection and enjoy it!

#1 In this scene, we can see that Colette has a forearm injury from a hot oven rack, something almost every other professional chef has.

#2 Ego’s office looks like a coffin, and his typewriter looks like a skull.

#3 In the scene, where Linguini offers Remy to hide in his pants, you can see Linguini’s brief that has “The Incredibles” logo on it.

#4 When Cars lost the academy award to Happy Feet, the directors put a special sign saying “Quality Assurance Guaranteed” in their movie “Ratatouille” just to make the academy aware that every frame of the movie was animated manually and there was no motion capturing.

#5 Are you curious about why Remy walks like a human on two limbs instead of four? He wants to keep his front paws clean for cooking. So thoughtful.

#6 The shop scene with the dead rats hanging on a rack was actually inspired by a real shop called Aurouze in Paris. Ew.

#7 To perfect the scene where Linguini jumps into the river, the directors made a crew member wear the chef’s jacket and jump into the water to see how the jacket sticks to the body when wet.

#8 When Ego gets sent back in time after eating Remy’s Ratatouille, we can spot some details in Ego’s mother’s house that hint that Remy actually lived with Ego’s mother and also learnt cooking from her.

#9 The bite mark when Remy bit Lunguinin can be seen in later scenes.

#10 The infamous ratatouille that Remy prepares is an actual dish created by Chef Thomas Keller. It takes 4 hours to get the whole thing done.

#11 When Linguini cuts the leek for the soup, you can actually spot green smears on the cutting board, which actually happens when you chop the greens. Minor, but very real.

#12 At the end of the movie, Ego can be seen getting a little fatter compared to how he looked throughout the movie. That’s because he stated that he only eats food he enjoys, and he adored ratatouille.

#13 The dog that barks at Remy in this scene is actually Doug from the movie “Up”..

#14 Gusteau’s Restaurant has actually been referenced in “Cars 2” as Gastow’s.

#15 The mime that you see in this scene is actually Bomb Voyage from the movie “The Incredibles”.

#16 When Remy enters the kitchen for the first time, he jumps into a bowl of water to clean up in order to avoid contaminating other food that he comes into contact with.

#17 The wine bottle seen in this scene is a Lasseter Wine Bottle, which is actually a real-life wine owned by John Lasseter.

#18 When Ego takes his first bite into the ratatouille, his face turns less pale, which shows how much his thoughts about the restaurant’s food have changed. He loved it.

#19 From the setting, it feels like the movie is set in the 60s until this scene comes where you can see this letter from Linguini’s mother to Gusteau dated 2004 which confirms the movie was set some years after 2004 and not 1960s.

#20 The reason why you can see the staff so exhausted after Linguini’s inspirational speech is that his speech actually took 20 minutes and got super boring. Pay attention to detail.

#21 In the movie references, you can see Colette’s cookbook in Riley’s living room

#22 This phone call was a fake; Skimmer was just talking to the dial tone.

#23 In this scene where Remy hugs his father, his voice actor, Patton Oswalt, hugged director Brad Bird to get a more realistic feel out of the scene.

Source: Disney / Pixar

#24 While going through the cookbook, you can see a page that explains the role of everyone in Gusteau’s kitchen, and that is why Remy knows it all when he actually goes to the kitchen.

#25 Gusteau’s first name is Auguste, as can be seen in his cookbook.

Source: —Merciless—

#26 Towards the end of the movie, you can notice that all the utensils are pins, the plates are actually buttons, and the cups are thimbles.

#27 The Chinese takeout food box that you see in Ratatouille can also be seen in the movies “A Bug’s Life” and “Inside Out”. The exact same ones.

#28 The cup you see Remy using is actually a toothpaste cap.

#29 The reason why Patton Oswalt was chosen as Remy’s voice actor was because of his amazing standup work with food as the topic.

#30 While he was exploring the house, Remy spots a woman pointing a gun at a man who she later kisses. He understands that, as we can see when Colette is about to hit Linguini, Remy gives a nudge to make him kiss her.
