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: 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: The family's last name, Parr, was chosen on purpose, as it sounds exactly like the golf term "par" - which means average. This was done as a clever pun to further point out that Bob literally went from an "Incredible" to "Average" when superhero work was banned.

Trivia: Craig T. Nelson is the voice of Bob Parr. When he accidentally breaks the car door and mutters to himself, you can hear him saying "Oh geez." This was written in once Nelson was cast as Bob Parr, as this is a phrase of frustration commonly used by Nelson's character on the "Coach" show.

Trivia: The main characters' powers have counterparts in the Marvel and DC comics: Mr. Incredible has super-strength and invulnerability like the Incredible Hulk (though with more brains); Elastigirl is the female version of DC Comic's Elongated Man (or Marvel's Mr. Fantastic); Dash with his power and uniform resembles the Flash; Violet has the basic powers - invisibility and force field generation - like Marvel Comic's Invisible Woman; and Frozone resembles Iceman, at least in the use of his powers.

Trivia: The kid on the tricycle is an inside joke representing the real life personality of John Lasseter, the chief creative officer at both Pixar and Walt Disney Feature Animation. During production of his films, he is usually waiting for something amazing to happen in regards to the animation or special effects, and later (during production) has been heard several times to remark of such amazing results as "totally wicked".

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.

Mistakes

When Bob Parr goes to his boss' office to be told off, you can see the door in the background is closed. Bob gets up and walks toward the door which he has now supposedly opened. You never see it physically come into shot, but when Bob is told to close the door, the shot hasn't changed but you can now see the door in shot being closed, which means the door suddenly opened itself. The framing of the shot never changes, therefore we should have seen the door in shot.
