Nineteen New Images in the Gallery!

You will see by the additions to the gallery how the animated world of food is growing. There seems to be a trend to garner our attention by reflecting human qualities in the food we purchase.

The winning entry is the bucket and the butter; romance with the cinema. Check out captain cupcake and all his friends in our Anthropomorphic Food and Kitchen Gallery. Don't forget to click on the images to enlarge them.

It might sound tragic but the drawings are done with such a degree of cuteness you smile at the bread's pain. Click on this banner to see...

You are such snobs. Disecting cartoon cupcakes to hear your smug selves speak. I guess living in Bradenton, Florida must make you feel the need to attack your own surroundings.
