One of the many joys of being a kid was getting to watch Saturday morning cartoons while gobbling up a big bowl of sugary cereal. Or maybe a plate full of Eggos covered in maple syrup. Or a couple of Pop-Tarts fresh out of the toaster.
Unfortunately, life can’t continue on that way. The older we get, the more responsibilities we have to attend to, not to mention that the body of a grown up doesn’t process sugar and carbs like it used to.
But sometimes, it’s nice to take a break from all the adulting and enjoy a cartoon marathon while also indulging in one's favorite food. After all, what's the point of being alive if one can't cut loose and enjoy life every once and a while? And sometimes that means turning our brains off and enjoying some animation.
There are plenty of great cartoons being made today that teens and grown ups can enjoy. For instance, shows like BoJack Horseman and Rick and Morty are amongst some of the best-reviewed shows of the last few years. But we also wouldn't blame anyone for enjoying some more kid-friendly cartoons as well, like SpongeBob SquarePants or Voltron: Legendary Defender, just to name a few.
So let's see if one's knowledge in cartoons can give us a glimpse into their all-time favorite food!
Name this cartoon not so family friendly character.
The main character of Family Guy, this character was both created and is voiced by Seth MacFarlane. Much like Homer from The Simpsons, this husband and father is a bit of a nit-wit who works a blue-collar job and seems to have no filter. Even if you’re not a fan of the show, this character should be fairly easy to name.
Name this happy cartoon character.
While children may be the intended audience of this series, plenty of grown ups have taken a liking to the show as well thanks to its distinct characters and clever writing. Since this character lends his name to the series, we can’t give you the title — but the show has been on Nickelodeon for nearly two decades.
Name this one-eyed cartoon character.
One of the main characters of Futurama, this female alien is voiced by Katey Sagal throughout the seven seasons of the show. Despite being a critical hit, Futurama was one of those shows that did not really find its audience during the early years, resulting in a cancelation and a revival years later.
Name this shonen hero.
The protagonist of the Dragon Ball series, this character first appeared in a 1984 manga, and he’s been a staple of the series ever since. Though he may appear human, the character is actually revealed to be the descendant from an alien race, which helps explains his supernatural strength and ability to teleport.
Name this modern Dennis the Menace.
The eldest child of the Simpsons family, this character follows after his father in a lot of ways in that he’s not exactly the sharpest knife in the drawer. He often spends his time making mischief and getting into trouble for it. The character debuted back in 1987 and has been going strong ever since.
Name this cartoon character.
One of the most recognizable Looney Tunes, this character debuted back in the 1930s — though many children today would still be able to remember him by name. The character is known for his ability to outsmart pretty much anyone he comes into contact with, especially Elmer Fudd, who is often trying to get that wabbit!
Name this shapeshifting dog.
One of the main characters of Adventure Time, this character may be based on a dog, but he’s capable of performing a number of supernatural feats, including shapeshifting and teleportation. As the name of the show suggests, he’s often eager to go on an adventure, and he’s usually a lot more laid back in the face of danger than his fellow travelers.
Name this guy.
This series originally ran on Cartoon Network for four seasons between 2001 and 2004. But it was recently brought back for a fifth season, which aired on Cartoon Network early last year. The series centers on the eponymous character, who is a Japanese warrior faced with saving the world from Aku.
Name this rebooted character.
Originally conceived as a straightforward superhero in the ‘60s, this character enjoyed a revival in the 1990s when he was turned into the host of an unorthodox late-night talk show. He has been voiced by a number of actors, though George Lowe has continued to voice the character on and off since 1994.
Name this teenaged boy.
One of the title characters of the popular Adult Swim series, this teenager is often whisked away from his normal life to go on an adventure with his mad scientist grandfather. Though the character may come across as a bit unprepared in most situations, he’s still come through in a pinch on a number of occasions.
Name this cartoon character.
The title character of the Netflix animated series, this character is voiced by Will Arnett, who is probably best known for playing GOB on Arrested Development.

Name this smarty pants.
The middle child of The Simpson’s family, this character may only be in elementary school, but she has an extremely high I.Q. and a very mature view of the world.

Name this other smarty pants.
One of the main characters of Scooby Doo, this character is often portrayed as the smartest member of the team who often ends up solving the mystery by the story’s end.

Name this bird.
Based on a yellow canary, this bird is a member of the Looney Tunes who first appeared back in the 1940s. Though the character certainly looks like a female thanks to its long lashes, this bird is actually a male. It is often paired with Sylvester the Cat, who is constantly trying to eat this bird despite their owners wishes.
Name this ThunderCat.
A member of the ThunderCats, this character first appeared in the 1985 series, where she is one of the few members of the alien race to survive the destruction of their home planet and make the trip to Earth. She more recently popped up in the Cartoon Network reboot, which debuted in 2011.
Name this South Park kid.
The protagonist of South Park, this character is one of the four main boys in the series who attends elementary school in the small Colorado town. He is easily the most proactive and self-centered of his friends, and he often tries to manipulate others into doing things for his own personal gain.

The best friend of SpongeBob SquarePants, this character is known for his extreme laziness and lack of intelligence. The character first appeared in the show’s pilot back in 1999, and he has been on the air ever since. Throughout his long run on the show, he has been voiced by Bill Fagerbakke.
Name this football head.
Though this character has a full name on the series, most will probably only know him by his first name since it also happens to be in the title of the show. The cartoon debuted on Nickelodeon in 1996 and ran for five seasons — making it a favorite amongst many ‘90s babies.
Name this lasagna fan.
One of the most famous comic characters of all time, this lazy cat has been popular for over four decades. The character has since popped up in a number of TV specials and animated movies, where comedy actor Bill Murray provided the voice for the iconic cat who wants to do nothing more than lounge around and eat lasagna.
Name this time traveller.
The main character of Futurama, this protagonist is a delivery boy who wakes up hundreds of years in the distant future after he’s frozen. He is the everyman of the series, who shares an apartment with his robot roommate Bender while developing feelings for the ship's captain, Leela, whom he eventually marries.
Name this dancing dog.
Making his debut back in 1950, this dog has since gone on to be the face of the Peanuts franchise as well as one of the most recognizable cartoon characters of all time. He is often portrayed as a loyal pet to Charlie Brown who goes on imaginative adventures with his friend Woodstock.
Name this dad.
One of the main characters of Rick and Morty, this character is a father and husband who is often brought down by his own lack of self-confidence. However, the character does also seem to be inherently unlucky, which certainly doesn’t help matters. The character is voiced by SNL-alum Chris Parnell.
Name this mathmatical hero.
The protagonist of Adventure Time, this character has gone on a slew of adventures throughout the ten seasons alongside his best friend/ adoptive brother — who also happens to be a dog with supernatural abilities.

Name this heiress.
One of the main characters of the FX series Archer, this character made her debut in the series pilot where she is voiced by comedic actress Judy Greer.

Name this iconic dad.
The protagonist of The Simpson, this character is a husband and a father who works at the Springfield Nuclear Power Planet, despite the fact that he’s far from the brightest or most professional character on the series. The character has been voiced by Dan Castellaneta ever since the show began.
Name this agent.
Loosely based on the character of James Bond, this secret agent is the main character of the popular animated series which originally debuted on FX. He is voiced by H. Jon Benjamin, who many may also recognize as the voice of the title character from Bob’s Burgers. But what’s this character’s name?
Name this Lothario.
Before he was the mastermind behind such shows as Family Guy and The Orville, Seth MacFarlane cut his teeth in the animated world by working on this TV show, which takes its name from the main character. The character fashions himself as a bit of a ladies’ man. And though he looks the part, he usually ends up striking out.
Name this bunny-eared girl.
The youngest sibling of the Belcher family, this character is often portrayed as the sharpest, most intelligent, and most creative.

Name this puddy-tat
One of the most recognizable Looney Tunes, this classic cartoon character borrows his likeness from that of a Tuxedo Cat. He is often seen chasing after a number of other characters, most notably, Tweety Bird. He has a heavy lisp, which is easily heard in one of his many catchphrases.
Name this mystery solving dog.
Though he doesn’t do much talking, this character is still considered the protagonist of the popular animated series that made him famous.

Along with his best friend Shaggy, he’s often least courageous of the gang.
Name this villain.
The primary antagonist of He-Man, this character is often trying to break into Castle Grayskull and obtain the fortresses many ancient secrets.

Name this prehistoric baby.
Though she is often regarded as one of the main characters of the Flintstones, this infant actually didn’t show up all the way until the end of the third season in the original series. However, since then she’s been a staple of the Flintstones brand who has appeared anywhere from a baby to a grown up.
Name this cowardly dog.
One of the weirder kid’s cartoons of the 1990s/ 2000s, this series focused on a fretful dog and his two elderly owners living in the town of Nowhere, Kansas. Throughout the show, the character comes across no shortage of spooky figures, which adds an element of horror to each episode.
Name this other Lothario.
Seth MacFarlane forces the majority of main characters on his hit series Family Guy, and this character is no exception. Although the character doesn’t sound much like MacFarlane, the voice actor has said that he is one of the easiest on the show to voice because he is often a one-note character.
Name this agent.
One of the most popular cartoon characters of the early 2000s, this character lent her name to the Disney Channel series, which ran for four seasons between 2002 and 2007. She was voiced by Christie Carlson Romana, who was best known for playing Ren Stevens on Even Stevens — which aired on the same network.
Name this proverbial fish out of water.
Despite being a squirrel, this SpongeBob character seems to have absolutely no problem living under the water along with the other citizens of Bikini Bottom. This is probably because she’s such a brave individual to begin with, who has no shortage of physically engaging hobbies, which sets her apart from the show's other main characters.
Name this cowboy with a short fuse.
Though Bugs Bunny most often finds himself facing off against Elmer Fudd, this Looney Tunes character has also given the rabbit a run for his money. Despite his relatively short stature, this character can be extremely assertive and resort to much more reckless measures in trying to take down his enemies.

Her first appearance came in 1919 in the comic titled Thimble Theatre. She was later played by Shelly Duval in the 1980 live-action film.
Name this batman nemesis.
One of the most recognizable villains of all time, this character has seen many incarnations across many mediums. But many consider his appearance in Batman: The Animated Series to be up there with the best of the best. Here, the character is voiced by none other than Mark Hamill from Star Wars fame.
Name this robot from Tijuana.
Though robots are often depicted as not having emotions or personality, this particular robot from Futurama is overflowing with personality — which isn’t always for the best. The character has a number of bad habits and personality traits, which often gets him into trouble and puts him at odds with his fellow characters.
Name this lead ThunderCat.
The leader of the ThunderCats, this character first appeared in the 1985 series.

What's his name?
Name Lorde's alter ego.
The father of one of the main characters from South Park, this individual has grown on to become one of the most beloved characters in the series. Despite being a grown up, he’s prone to being just as immature as his son and his friends. He is voiced by Trey Parker throughout the series.
Name this quick guy.

Name this kooky cat.
Despite being nearly 100 years old, this cartoon character is still extremely recognizable today. You may have spotted his likeness in the popular wall clock, but that doesn’t mean you necessarily known his name. But in this instance, a process of elimination may help you narrow down the correct choice.
Name this confused middle schooler.
There are very few “normal” characters on Bob’s Burgers. Even still, this character stands out as being one of the weirder of the bunch. She is the eldest daughter of Bob and Linda, who often struggles with self-confidence and image issues. However, she is often shown to display the most common sense despite her numerous idiosyncrasies.
Name this Pokémon trainer.
Although he may now be the human face of the Pokémon series, this character wasn’t part of the franchise from the very beginning. Instead, he was created for the Pokémon anime series which originally debuted in Japan in 1997. Many of his features were based off the character of Red from the video games.
Name this deadpan girl.
After becoming such a hit character thanks to her appearances on Beavis and Butt-Head, this character was awarded her own spin-off series, which also aired on MTV beginning in the 1990s. She is an very intelligent high schooler, though she also can’t help but be pretty pessimistic about most things.
Name this super intelligent baby.
Though he talks a whole lot and has quite the extensive vocabulary, this Family Guy character is usually understood only by the family dog and his brother Chris, possibly implying that he may simply be speaking in baby-talk after all. Like many of the other series characters, he is voiced by Seth MacFarlane.
Name this leader of the Autobots.
One of the most popular of the Transformers, this character is a leader of the Autobots who is often depicted as a semi-truck when he is in disguise.

One of the most popular cartoon characters of the last few years, this mad scientist is one of the title characters of the animated sci-fi series which debuted in 2013. He began as a parody of Doc Brown from the Back to the Future trilogy, though he has very much become a character of his own throughout the darkly comedic sci-fi series.
