If you’re anything like me, you’ve probably watched your fair share of cartoons as a child (and as a college student, let’s be honest). But as I look back on my television habits, there’s always something that catches my eye (and my stomach): the food.
Animated cartoons and movies have an underrated ability to cater to a viewer’s inner foodie. I’m know I’m not the only one who has wished that the famous Krabby Patty was available outside of Bikini Bottom…
So here it is:
The Ultimate Countdown:
8 Animated Foods that Still Make Us Hungry
8. Mulan: Rice bowl.
I never thought rice topped with sunny side up eggs and bacon could look so delicious, but Mushu knows what’s up.
8. Lady and the Tramp: Spaghetti and meatballs.
This classic scene is super romantic (even accounting for the fact that they are DOGS!!), but I can’t keep my eyes off of that heaping pile of pasta…
6. Winnie the Pooh: Honey (Lots and lots of honey.)
Even though no one really eats honey straight out of the jar, and I have never seen honey that looks like that, Winnie the Pooh makes that golden stuff look super delicious.
5. Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Pizza.
If the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles eat pizza, I want to eat pizza. Check out at cheesiness!
4. Scooby Doo: Amazing stackable sandwiches.
In between all of the mysteries that Scooby and the crew solve, there’s always time for a bigger-than-your-face sandwich.
3. The Simpsons: All of the donuts you could ever need.
It wouldn’t be an episode of The Simpsons without Homer chowing down on a doughnut with pink icing and sprinkles. Yum.
2. Beauty and the Beast: “Be Our Guest” dinner
Yes, it’s amazing that the Beast lives in a giant castle and is secretly a prince, but I can’t keep my mind off those dancing desserts. Look at that cake!
1. Spongebob Squarepants: Krabby Patty.
It’s no surprise that the Krabby Patty takes the number one spot. Spongebob Squarepants has left me forever craving a cartoon food item that will never exist, expect for those weird gummies they tried selling. #firstworldproblems.
