Sasquash Sightings

In the Sony Pictures Animation feature Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs, teams of artists created a plethora of foodimals that populate the fun, colorful world in this sequel. That is, food/animal hybrids.

In Cloudy 2, the foodie characters are created in the Diatonic Super Mutating Dynamic Food Replicator (DSMDFR). Only instead of turning weather phenomena into food, this time the machine turns animals into unique species blends: Watermelophants, Flamangos, Cantalopes, Fruit Cocatiels, Hippotatomuses, Shrimpanzees, Tacodiles, and Apple Pie-thons, to name a few. And then there is the Sashquash.

Like its almost-namesake, the Sashquash is an elusive creature that makes dozens of glimpse-and-you'll-miss them appearances in the film? From a building window in San Franjose to driving a boat or walking in the background of Sardine Circle, he can be spotted - if you have a keen eye.

Check out the video to learn about these Sashquash "Easter eggs." But before you do, see if you can spot the creature in these images. And, be sure to read how the amazing characters and backgrounds were created in the feature story "A Tasty Treat" (October/November 2013), available soon online or by signing up for a free digital subscription.
