Stuffed Justice: Finding Nemo Easter Egg in Toy Story 4
You lying so low in the weeds
I bet you gonna ambush me…
“Barracuda” – Heart
If there is a top contender for the saddest moment in a Pixar film, it has to be the Barracuda ambush on Nemo’s family. Don’t @ me.
But according to Buzzfeed, we need not be worried about reprisal anymore.
That barracuda is toast. Or, more accurately, stuffed.

That scene was a sucker punch to the heart, and to be perfectly honest with you, I’ve held a deep resentment towards barracudas ever since.
But I feel a little bit better about it now because I recently got to chat with Josh Cooley and Mark Nielsen, the director, and producer of Toy Story 4, who shared a handful of their favorite Easter eggs with me.
And you know what they mentioned? That evil barracuda from Finding Nemo is stuffed and mounted on the wall of the antique shop in Toy Story 4.
This jerk got caught, stuffed, apparently THROWN OUT, and ended up at Second Chance Antiques. This is a perfectly satisfying ending for a Disney villain in the same ranks as the hunter that killed Bambi’s mom.
Honestly, this is the best news I’ve seen all day. I am going home and watching the heck outta that scene. Barracuda be damned, tomorrow is Friday.
