"One of the most entertaining things about Turning Red is its many shout-outs to Toronto and Canadians. For once, Toronto isn't playing another city. The CN Tower is in many scenes and TTC streetcars (the old, shorter kind) trundle along squeaky-clean roads. We see Daisy Mart shops, Tim Hortons doughnuts, a bobble-headed moose, Ontario licence plates and colourful Canadian dollars. We hear a reference to Céline Dion and see a blue jay—the avian kind, not the baseball kind."
