Trivia: The phone number on Mirage's business card is 866-787-7476. The last 7 digits spell out S-U-P-R-H-R-O on a phone touch pad.

Trivia: The scene where Frozone, voiced by Samuel L. Jackson, has a cop pointing a gun at him, where he wants to "get a drink of water", is very similar to the scene he plays in Die Hard with a Vengeance, where he is in the same situation in the subway platform, needing to answer a pay phone.

Trivia: Pay close attention to the number on the licence plate of the police car at the beginning of the film. It is KR 54, a reference to the television show "Car 54, Where are You?"

Trivia: Mirage tells Mr. Incredible to report to room A-113 for a briefing. That's the number of the Cal Arts classroom where Pixar director first met Brad Bird. This number also appears as license plates in Bird's Toy Story and as a flight number in Toy Story 2.

Trivia: When Mr. Incredible is looking at all of his pictures and magazines and awards on the wall, if you look towards the bottom left of the awards, you can see some of the collectibles of Woody from Toy Story 2.

Trivia: When Edna Mode is showing off the suits, Elastigirl tries out the tracking system, which points directly to Pixar's headquarters.

Trivia: At the beginning when Mr. Incredible is chasing the robbers by following them on a map on a screen inside his car, the street names on the map are actual street names from Emeryille, CA, where Pixar is based.

Trivia: Other supers from the movie that mimic comic book heroes (disregarding gender): Psycwave is Professor X, Phylange is Banshee, Blazestone is Pyro, Thunderhead is Storm, Gazerbeam is Cyclops, Apogee is Sunspot, and Gamma Jack is Ultraverse's Atom Bob. Jack-Jack also briefly manifests the powers of the Human Torch and the Incredible Hulk and the board that Frozone uses near the end is reminiscent of the Silver Surfer.

Phoenix

Trivia: At the start of the film, Mr. Incredible refers to Buddy as "Brody". Buddy's voice is provided by Jason Lee who played Brody in Mallrats and Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back. (00:04:10)

Trivia: In the "Jack-Jack Attack" special DVD feature, look closely at the aftermath of Jack-Jack's transformations when the chairs are turned over and burnt. In one of the shots is the rubber ball from Luxo Jr.

Trivia: In movie theaters, instead of using the normal "burn marks" film to signal a reel change, "The Incredibles" has the symbolic "i" encased in an atom at the top right corner for a reel change.

Trivia: Syndrome was originally going to be named "Xerek". It was changed because they were afraid the voice actors wouldn't be able to pronounce it.

Trivia: The film's creators originally couldn't find an appropriate actress to voice Edna. Finally, when asking actress Lily Tomlin to voice Edna, Brad Bird provided an example of what she should sound like. Tomlin told Bird that he had nailed the voice well, and said that Brad should do the voice himself.

Trivia: Originally, an old man named Snug Porter was going to fly the plane that Helen flew to Syndrome's HQ. In the first script the favor she called in for was for him to fly her to HQ, not just lend her a plane. When the explosion blew up the plane it was implied that he didn't survive. They cut the scene because they couldn't give him enough screen time to make the audience sad when he died. You see one shot of him when Elastigirl picks up the photo while she is on the phone. He is also in the background of the wedding scene. The entire cut sequence can be seen in its basic storyboard form on the DVD extras.

Trivia: In order to give Dash a realistic out-of-breath voice, director Brad Bird made actor Spencer Fox, who voices Dash, run laps around the studio.

Trivia: During the chase scene when the disc-like aircraft of Syndrome are hunting Dash, for a short time it sounds exactly like the pod-racers from "Star Wars Episode I: The Phantom Menace". They then change to sound like the speeder bikes from Return of the Jedi.

Trivia: Helen's pilot call number when she is flying the jet is India Golf Niner-Niner, or "IG99" for short. This is a deliberate reference by Brad Bird for his earlier film, The Iron Giant, which came out in 1999.

Trivia: In the scene when Dash is sent to the principal's office, the plaques on the wall say J. Walker. This is the name of the producer of the movie, John Walker.
