Why This Secret Code 'A113' Is Shown In Every Animation Movie?

We all grew up watching animation movies like Toy Story, Finding Nemo, Wall-E, Monsters, Inc. and many others and we all loved them. I still find animation movies the funniest movies and never miss any chance to watch them. 

But, even if you have watched each of the animation movies, I'm sure you missed to notice a very unusual thing which occurs in every animated movie. It is obvious from the title of the story that I'm talking about the secret number "A113" which is showed in most of the animation movie from Pixar and Disney Animation Studio. Especially, you can see this code A113 in all Pixar movies.

So, what does this code "A113" mean and why animators are sneaking this code in their every movie? Why is this number so special to them?

A113 is a classroom number at California Institute of Arts. It is the classroom for the first year graphic design and character animation, where many of the animators discovered and aced their art. The use of A113 is to pay tribute to that classroom without which they would never be doing, what they are doing now.

Isn't it awesome? But in which scenes did they sneak this number?

Let's find out. Also, see that classroom photo at the end of story.
