Did You Know?
The first Alebrije to appear when Miguel first crosses the bridge is a large feathered serpent. This is possibly a nod to Quetzalcoatl (also known as Kukulkan or Q'uq'umatz), a prominent deity in several mesoamerican cultures. This deity had a temple built in his honor, Chichen Itza, which is one of the 8 wonders of the modern world, located in the Yucatán peninsula in Mexico. The step pyramid also resembles the structure that the creature lands on and that connects the marigold bridges. See more
When Miguel's abuelita catches him in the plaza with the Mariachi, Miguel pushes the guitar back. The Mariachi puts his hands up to keep his sombrero on and between shots, the guitar flips over in his lap. In one shot, the neck is on the Mariachi's right hand--the position Miguel, facing opposite, was holding it in--and in the next, the neck is on the Mariachi's left hand, as if the Mariachi was about to play it.

[singing for Chicharrón
Well everyone knows Juanita / Her eyes each a different color / Her teeth stick out / and her chin goes in / and her...
... knuckles, they drag on the floor.
Those aren't the words!
There are children present.
Her hair is like a briar / She stands in a bow-legged stance / And if I weren't so ugly / She'd possibly give me a chance.
Brings back memories. Gracias.

On the opening Pixar logo, the last sound is muted. After the lamp stops moving as usual, a bell chiming is heard leading to the opening shot. See more
