The truck has a distinctive shape, bright yellow paint and a rocket on the roof. As the years pass and fans become more eager to spot the iconic symbol, the animators have taken extra care to hide it in more elusive places.

ten A bug’s life hides the truck in plain sight

The life of an insect premiered in 1998 and follows Hopper, the evil, greedy grasshopper who threatens a colony of ants. Flik travels to Bug City and stumbles upon a circus that is home to many misfit insects, including Dot the ladybug, Heimlich the caterpillar, and Slim the bug. These bugs join Flik on his mission to stop Hopper.

Bug City resides under a trailer, and when the ambitious ant arrives, there’s a familiar truck to the left of the mobile home. It’s unclear whether the owner is ordering pizza or working for the company, and while this is one of the more obvious hiding places for the truck, it still doesn’t immediately grab viewers’ attention.

In the witch’s workshop, a strange sculpture is visible behind a pair of candles on her desk. Lacking cars in medieval Scotland, the animators immortalize the Pizza Planet truck in a wood carving.
