The Disney Easter Eggs You Probably Missed In Solar Opposites

The Solar Opposites (yes, that's what they call themselves) sure love pop culture. In just the first two seasons, the show has seen a bevy of parodies and references to other projects. Sometimes, these homages are subtle, such as the time Yumyulack attacked Jesse in the same manner as the infamous ax scene in "The Shining." In other instances, the references smack you right in the face, such as Halk Hogam in Season 2 being a former writer for "Bones." As expected, numerous "Bones" jokes emerge from this bit.

"Solar Opposites" has proven time and time again that it's not afraid to go all in on a target, no matter how obscure. Much of the plot of the Christmas special centers around "Jingle All the Way," so they certainly have no problem running a gag into the ground. And the show hasn't been afraid to tackle arguably the biggest name in pop culture — Disney. In fact, there's one Disney-related joke that may have gone over viewers' heads upon first watch. 

Disney characters are hidden at the Pupa's auction

In Season 1, Episode 4, "The Booster Manifold," the Shlorpians are busy with other matters to attend to the Pupa. As such, it goes off on its own adventure, at one point getting kidnapped by a seagull, which a fisherman promptly shoots down. What's next in store for the adorable Pupa? Why, it's getting put up to auction with everyone thinking it's SpongeBob Squarepants, of course. Such is a day in the life on "Solar Opposites."

During the Pupa's captivity at the auction house, there are other exotic animals being locked away. And in this instance, "exotic animals" refers to animals dressed up as famous cartoon characters. Most of them are affiliated with Disney characters. If you look closely, you'll find a duck in a sailor suit, a family of Dalmatians, and a mouse wearing red pants. These are allusions to Donald Duck, 101 Dalmatians, and Mickey Mouse, respectively. And later in the scene, if you look at the wall where the wealthy elite enjoy a meal, you'll find the head of Dumbo mounted.

It gets pretty dark, but that's kind of the whole deal of the show: take something pleasant and twist it into something demented.
