* In ''WesternAnimation/{{Ratatouille}}'', there are scenes where taste is represented by abstract shapes dancing to jazz. ** Anton's little 'memory' of his childhood when he eats ratatouille counts as well. It doesn't display the taste itself, but it certainly shows the ''feeling'' the taste evoked. * In the film version of ''Literature/AnonymousRex'' scents carried by particular dinosaurs are often displayed by the main character talking about the scent as well as vivid visual depictions of the scent items. For example, one dinosaur smells of peaches and cream and, as the main character talks about it, images of brightly lit peach slices falling into cream appear on the screen. * Averted by ''Film/{{Polyester}}'', in which audience members were given "Smell-O-Rama" scratch and sniff cards.
