Monsters Inc. fans are thrilled that Feb. 3, 2019 correlates into 2319 day.

Monsters Inc. fans have more than just the Super Bowl to enjoy on Sunday.

Since it's Feb. 3, 2019, fans of the Pixar film were quick to that the date correlates to the code 2319, a number that leads to a sequence in a hilarious scene from the 2001 film.

As pointed out by CNET sister site ComicBook.com, the scene in question involves the monster George (Sam Black), who gets an unexpected haircut as a result of getting a child's sock stuck on his gloriously orange fur. At this point in the film, monsters think children are toxic, making the sock a big issue code-named 2319. 

Fans who remember the scene have taken to Twitter to celebrate the date, with all sorts of orange-ful posts in memory of George's hair.

One even thinks 2319 could be a Super Bowl strategy (don't do this).

And here's a human reenactment of the scene.

And a costumed one, too.
