Check out "The Incredibles". Another animated movie that contains a bunch of plants that look like Monstera, Philos and ever a few Colocasia.

It’s funny that you bring up Aroids in movies.  I was amused when I saw “Madagascar 2” recently and noticed some animated Monstera deliciosa plants in the jungle scene.  To be clear, they were not animated, as in dancing around and singing songs.  But the whole movie is animated and I thought it was pretty special that the artists took the time to draw Monsteras.  They are pretty easy to pick out (for people that spend all their time looking at plant life) if you watch the movie.  When I nudged my wife and pointed it out she took a little longer to realize, being distracted by the characters and main action of the movie.


Could this be the first Aroid in an animated movie?
