Not so "little known". The trailer for the VHS version has a quick interview with one of the animators, who readily indicates his inspiration was skateboarding. Onyx

How is this an egg? It's also a well known fact that animator's derive inspiration for their drawings from other sources. An easter egg, by definition, is "any amusing tidbit that creators hid in their creations." It's amazing that this egg got through the bureaucracy.
