What does “A113” mean?

“A113” is the number of the animation classroom at the California Institute of the Arts. This room was used for first year graphic design and character animation, where many of the animators at Pixar and Disney (and other studios) were taught. By including the number they are giving a subtle shout-out to their alma mater.

The photo below shows Pixar film director John Lasseter and animators Andrew Stanton and Pete Docter standing outside the famed classroom.
