Happy Easter! Here's A Number Of The Big Bang Theory Easter Eggs You May Have Missed!

The laugh out loud TV show The Big Bang Theory draws in millions of viewers across the world. It never fails to make their audience laugh either. But whilst watching the show, there has been many Easter Eggs hidden away somewhere. How many have you spotted throughout the Seasons? I'll break down a number of them now for you.

The Number 73

The number 73 is Sheldon's favourite number! Not only that, 1973 is actually the year Jim Parsons was born! Another Easter Egg for the number 73 is, in the shows 73rd episode, Sheldon expresses his love for the beloved digits. In the words of Sheldon: "73 is the 21st prime number. Its mirror, 37, is the 12th and its mirror, 21, is the product of multiplying 7 and 3... and in binary 73 is a palindrome, 1001001, which backwards is 1001001."


In Season 6, the episode 'The Holographic Excitation' has a discussion between Amy and Sheldon on what to dress up as on Halloween night. Amy suggests Blossom and Joey. This is a 90s sitcom that actress of Amy, Mayim Bialik, starred in. Mayim starred as Blossom Russo.

Penny's Fridge

You see Penny's fridge and think "okay, it's am everyday fridge. We all put pictures and memos on our fridges. Either as a reminder of good times or a shopping list." But look again! If you look incredibly closely, all the photos on Penny's fridge are of her posing with all the cast of 'The Big Bang Theory'. She is also posing with the crew of the show too!

Get Counting!

Okay, now you have to get your fast counting hat on! Did you know that there is 109 images in the opening credits to the show? The 109 images show the evolution of mankind over the many many years. Have you spotted the floppy discs, Playstation, breakdancers, Martin Luther King or even Mysta Bot? Well next time you watch an episode, try not to sing a long to the catchy song and take a closer look at the images.


Any mathematicians out there? Well if you're one and a fan of the show, you may have noticed that Amy's apartment number is 314. If you're not into maths, you're probably thinking "it's just a number." But no it's not. Amy's apartment is the same number as Pi. The number for Pi is 3.1415926535897932384626433832795028841. Obviously Amy couldn't live at this number, so they abbreviated it like we do in maths.

Sheldon's Spot

You may want a minute to let this sink in. We always see Sheldon wearing a T-Shirt with something to do with The Flash on it. But this time it's reversed! The Flash character, Cisco, wears a Big Bang Theory T-Shirt in his show! It's like a battle, we always see Sheldon with his red T-Shirt with the yellow lighting strike on it. Now The Flash are fighting back by wearing a T-Shirt saying "This Is My Spot" on it and a picture of Sheldon's couch spot.

T-Shirts And Emotions

For the final Easter Egg, I thought I'd stick with T-Shirts. Of course, like everyone else, we all have different coloured T-Shirts just like Sheldon. But all of Sheldon's T-Shirts carry emotions. When Sheldon wears his red T-Shirth with the Red Lantern logo on it, it is representing 'Rage'. When Sheldon is being 'Friendly' and 'Pleasant' he is seen wearing a purple T-Shirt. This also relates to him representing 'Love' and 'Compassion'. Thereof course is many more.

As previously said, this is just a number of Easter Eggs the show uses. I'm not going to sit here and list every single one to you. But Happy Easter to you all!
