Incredibles, The Easter Egg - News Paper Headline

Watch during the movie, close to the half way mark. A character is reading the paper, and for a moment, when they raise it on the right hand side is the headline "Disaster Feared As Catastrophy Looms". It's visible for just a split second, but it's the same headline that appeared on the paper in "The Iron Giant", Director and Writer Brad Bird's previous animated feature. Look for it when Dean, Hogarth and the Giant go to the lake. Dean raises the paper in a futile attempt to protect himself from the tidal wave the Giant unleashes when he does a cannon ball. I'm unsure if Bird had it put in the film himself, or the Pixar guys did it as a tribute to a film they all loved.

Actually I think that headline first appeared in Disney's excellent movie "Fun and Fancy Free"; Jiminy Cricket walks over a newspaper full of ominous headlines, of which that is one. I recognized it when I watched The Iron Giant, as well as The Incredibles.
