- “Did I ask for the gum commercial?!”
- ―Anger upon hearing the jingle
In "Inside Out"
The gum brand is treated as a running gag throughout the film. It first appears when Joy and Sadness encounter Forgetters Paula and Bobby in Long Term Memory. The two forgetters send a memory of the TripleDent Gum commercial to Headquarters via a Recall Tube, causing the jingle to play in Riley's head.
Will make you smile
It lasts a while
Will help you, mister
To punch bad breath right in the kisser
- TripleDent Gum may be inspired by Trident Gum, which Pixar had produced a commercial for prior to making Toy Story. The commercial bears no resemblance to TripleDent Gum, though.
- The TripleDent Gum gag is a reference to how an annoying song can seem to inexplicably get stuck in your head.
