Apple Guide (1.2)
In Apple Guide, v1.2, there is a way to see a list of credits. I don't know how to trigger the egg but I found it by opening the Apple Guide extension through ResEdit. After opening the TEXT resource and double-clicking on "Who?", you will see this:
Version 1.2 of Apple Guide is brought to you by:
In the French System, all of the text is in French except
for the very last name, which was an addition for the French
Apple Guide: Mario "Ah que coucou" Teixeira. This translates
literally as "Oh what peekaboo". It is an expression from
French singer Johnny Halliday who is supposed (according to
a TV program called "Les Guignols de L'Info") to always say
"Ah que coucou".
When opening Macintosh Guide from the Apple Guide menu,
you will be presented with what's called the 'Howdy Screen'.
This is a preliminary introduction screen telling a little
about the database the user just opened. If you press
Control, Command, and Caps Lock down, and click in the
content of the window (before you do anything in the
window), you will see a list of credits containing the names
of those who have worked on Apple Guide.

Apple Guide 1.4.1 & Macintosh Guide 2.2
Apple rarely, if ever, reacts to the discovery of an easter egg. Well, I have to applaud the Apple Guide team on this one. With the release of System 7.6 (and version 2.2 of Apple Guide), Apple had a little fun with the Macintosh and Apple Guide eggs explained above.
In Macintosh Guide, the credits have changed to a help tab saying "How do I" for one topic and "Find the credits?" for the subtopic. I looked; I can't find them.
The engineers also removed the credits in Apple Guide's resource, which have been replaced by a poem:
the keeper knew that future generations
would benefit from today's work.
