When Tuke makes up with Rutt after their falling out, Rutt suggests "Hey, you know what this calls for? A pile of delicious barley and amber wheat on a cool bed of malted hops, eh." As a celebration meal, to which Tuke replies "I like it.". The list is rough ingredients for beer. The characters are voiced by Rick Moranis and Dave Thomas which play Bob and Doug McKenzie in 'Strange Brew' and the characters are self profest beer enthusiast.
Two characters in Brother Bear (Tuke and Rutt) play "I Spy" while traveling on a mammoth. They both choose obvious items (in this case, a tree) and keep choosing it even when the other character knows what they chose. This continues a similar theme in many Disney branded movies (Finding Nemo, Dinosaur...) where characters do the same thing.
