** Oh, and that really ''is'' Creator/TomHanks, Tim Allen, Dave Foley, Billy Crystal, and John Goodman reprising their past {{Pixar}} roles in the drive-in scene.
** George Carlin as Fillmore, doing his Hippy Dippy Weatherman voice.

During the end credits, Mack goes to a drive-in featuring ''[[WesternAnimation/ToyStory Toy Car Story]]'', ''[[WesternAnimation/MonstersInc Monster Trucks, Inc.]]'', and ''WesternAnimation/ABugsLife''. Mack [[ButHeSoundsHandsome praises John Ratzenberger's characters]] at first, until he realizes...
--->'''Mack:''' [[HypocriticalHumor Wait a minute here... they're just using the same actor over and over!]] [[SelfDeprecation What kind of a cut-rate production is this?!]]
