Disney Easter Egg: Hidden Features in Disney Movies

What is a Disney easter egg? The history of hiding eggs in animated movies is quite funny, especially the Disney eater eggs. Before VHS was innovated, if something is put in the background of a movie, it was an in-joke that only a handful of people will be able to discover. When home video was introduced and we were able to use the slow-motion feature to watch every frame of the movie, even after discovering this, sharing it might still prove difficult. But now, there are streaming services, screenshots, and the internet.
