It's been several long years since Community went off the air, and I still miss it every day.
Mostly because I constantly think about just how freaking smart that show was. There were so many Easter eggs throughout the series that our minds were blown on the regular.
1. If anyone was surprised to learn that Abed had experience delivering a baby, then they clearly weren't paying attention to the background in the episode where he literally delivers a baby.
2. That same couple can be spotted 10 months earlier, in Season 1, when Abed alerts the students in the school to avoid the faulty condoms that were handed out.
3. In the episode "Pillows and Blankets," Jeff is sitting on Dean Pelton's couch without cushions because they were used by Abed for his pillow fort.
4. Abed tells Jeff a story about how he was an extra in Cougar Town, and Danny Pudi can actually be seen in the background of a Cougar Town episode.
5. When Jeff finds out that Pierce named him as his emergency contact, he gets Britta's name added, as well. Later in the season, when Pierce is in the hospital, Jeff and Britta arrive first.
6. In "A Fistful of Paintballs," Troy is dressed like Sheriff Bart from Blazing Saddles.
7. In "Aerodynamics of Gender" when Abed goes full RoboCop, the text on the side of his screen hints at the story line of the Christmas episode as well as the blanket fort episode.
8. A flashback in Season 2 shows Shirley teaching Annie, Abed, and Britta how to sell Lady Miss Lady cosmetics kits. The hitchhiker that Britta picks up in Season 3 appears to have a kit of his own.
9. At the end of "The Art of Discourse," Britta's caption reads that she will be the proud owner of a used iPod in 2014. In 2014, Britta receives Pierce's old iPod as per his will.
10. Another long-running joke is when the name "Beetlejuice" is dropped three times throughout the first three seasons, and on the third time, he makes an appearance in the background.
11. In the claymation episode, Abed mistakes Chang for a snowman. Later, he can be seen in the background, which indicates Chang spying on the study group from outside.
12. I guess the study group started noticing Chang creeping around the study room because they actually included a tiny Chang watching from the window in their diorama.
14. If you blinked during Season 2's Valentine's Day episode, then you might have missed how Starburns had shaved hearts into his sideburns for the special occasion.
15. When Troy is freaking the eff out after finally meeting his idol, Levar Burton, the photo in the background is actually a stock photo featuring a young Amy Poehler.
16. In an episode after Troy sets sail with his new bestie, Levar Burton, a news ticker reads, "Levar Burton and non-celebrity companion captured by pirates in the Gulf of Mexico."
Be honest. Did you catch all of these hidden details in Community?
