You will watch this animated short featuring a floppy blob of a dog making an omelette for its exhausted, depressed owner, and you will enjoy it. Thank you, Madeline Sharafian (a BFA2 character animator at CalArts) for these two-and-a-half minutes of heartswelling cuteness.

When you saw the S'mOreos in our roundup of 14 Things To Make with Oreos, did you think, "Man, if only I could watch an animated gif of a S'mOreos being squished down over and over again for eternity..."? Well, so did we. So did we.
You know that story about the soul that burst out of a man's eyeball and flew around the world eating everything in its path while the man's catatonic body was befriended by two deer? You don't? Watch this fantastic animated short by Stephen P. Neary to get caught up.

Happy Independence Day, (United States of) America! Celebrate with parades, fireworks, cookouts, anything that's red, white, and blue, and...a flying cat dressed up as a burger who leaves behind a trail of stars and stripes.
If you ever wondered what life would be like if hamburgers mutated into 10-story tall, bloodthirsty, man-eating monsters, wonder no more: Just watch Hambuster, a vivid computer animated short film (in 2D and 3D) made by five students from Supinfocom in Arles, France. We wouldn't stand a chance against those burgers, basically. (Not safe for those prone to having nightmares about being chased by giant burgers and then being torn limb from limb or eaten alive.)
Animation and illustration student Tom Rainford has a few things he likes and dislikes about shopping at grocery stores. Cadavers in the freezer = nope. Grapes down pants = yes!

"So, Courtney—tell us about the sandwich you made for your brother."

If tomatoes were sentient creatures with eyes and mouths and the ability to bounce around gaily, you'd never ever want to eat them. Because they're too cute. But you might want to keep one as a pet.
Only the manliest of potatoes could peel himself and fearlessly get pushed into a vat of bubbling Japanese curry.
It was all thanks to a case of bad digestion! (Note to self: Don't eat colorful blobs that randomly fall out of the sky.)
Ads played in today's movie theaters usually annoy the hell out of me. But the concession stand ads and intermission trailers of the 1960s and before, less so. There's music! Animated hot dogs! Exclamation points! All I can think about is popcorn, candy bars, and soda!
In honor of today being National Junk Food Day, here are some musical animated public service announcements from the '80s to remind you to...eat more healthily! In between eating the unhealthy stuff.
