Season 1 (2010-2011)

Season 2 (2011-2012)

Season 3 (2012-2013)

  • In the episode "The Iron Giant Lady / Raising a New Hope," WALL•E and EVE are seen part of the Green Space program in "The Iron Giant Lady" part.
  • In the episode "I Am Lorax / Modern Family Circus," Brave was mentioned as Pixar's first movie with a heroine.
  • In the episode "The Blunder Games / The Poop-seidon Adventure," Merida appears in "The Blunder Games".
  • In the episode "Taking Nemo / Once Upon a Toon," Nemo gets taken by John Lasseter to make Finding Nemo 3D, while Liam Neeson/Bryan Mills tries to find Nemo. Also, John shows a Toy Story 3D poster, as well as one of Up that was called "3D Story". However, although Pixar films are animated (WALL•E contained live-action segments), this episode mentioned as if all the Pixar movies are live-action. Also, Carl's house on the Up poster in the episode is red instead of random colors. And the poster for Finding Nemo 3D shown in the episode incorrectly has it titled "Finding 3D-mo".
  • In the episode "Outtagascar / F·I·E·N·D·S," Lightning McQueen from Cars (although he said that he has two movies) and Buzz Lightyear from Toy Story appear as part of the Sequel Circus in "Outtagascar", which the characters have run out of ideas for sequels.
  • In the episode "The Perks of Being a Wallcrawler / Regular Shogun Warriors," the announcer announces that after predicting the world would end by the year 2013, the Mayans must now suffer through Disney and Pixar's Monsters, Inc. 3D. However, the poster shown has Sulley purple with gray spots instead of blue with purple spots, and Mike blue with a blue eye instead of green with a green eye.
