Question: When the toys are trying to get into the big building, Rex comments that they can use balloons to float to the 23rd floor. Could this have possibly been a reference to Up, or just a coincidence? The teaser trailer for Wall-e shows that they had the idea for Wall-e almost 15 years before it being made, so was the idea of Up being developed around the time of Toy Story 2?
Question: If the ark was loaded with one male and one female of the same species, wouldn't there be genetic defects in their young (several generations later, I mean) as siblings would mate and produce offspring with each other? This certainly occurs with humans, so is it the same with animals?
Question: When Al is talking to the Japanese man on the phone, he ends the phone call with "Don't touch my mustache." What does he mean by this? Is this a Japanese term that sounds like don't touch my mustache? (Similar to when everybody yells "have a paper bag!" at Harryhausen's in Monster's Inc?)
Question: When Cain and Coop are talking about changing the rules, Cain says that every owner has to vote yes in order for the rules to change. But as Coop does not want the rules to change, if every owner, but Coop, voted yes to change the rules, wouldn't the rules stay the same since Coop has the controlling vote because he is in charge of the league?
Question: Something I have always wondered. At the end of the movie, Remy has hundreds of rats cooking the food with him. However, Remy is the rat in the whole flock with a real ability to know how to cook. How did all of the rats cook the food with great ability if they have no cooking experience at all? Remy couldn't have taught them all how to cook or what to do for the recipes.
