Cartoons have a knack for making food and beverages look unimaginably delicious. Of course everybody loves pizza, but there’s something about its cheesy, droopy nature that makes it ripe for animation. It’s a dish that’s so ingrained in pop culture that it’d be no surprise if you found it referenced in just about every classic TV show ever; but it’s the animations that manage to make it look otherworldly. Here are 5 times cartoon pizza looked better than the real thing.
The original pizza nuts, there are few characters in history who loved sucking down a nice cheesy slice more than the Turtles. What better way to wind down after a day of fighting evil than eating an entire pizza to yourself with your three best mates?
Nothing says ‘angsty teen’ like oversized wireframe glasses, perpetual monotony and an obsession for pizza. Daria ate her fair share over the course of the show, and of course, it was always pure melty goodness.
Scooby Doo and Shaggy were both unstoppable eating machines, and when he wasn’t getting stuck in to Scooby Snacks, Scoobs could be found enjoying a pizza or three.
The Simpsons animators were kings of making foods and liquids look impalpably tasty, frosty beers being a case in point. But pizza also made an appearance fairly often and man, did it look good.
Garfield was an absolute fiend for pizza with a bottomless stomach for food. It’s no wonder then that the classic pepperoni pizza made an appearance more than once during the duration of the show.
