* In the original cut of ''Film/{{Ghostbusters}}'', Dr. Egon Spengler's sweet tooth was a little more obvious. Still, it can be noticeably observed throughout the final product. (Venkman rewarding him with a candy bar, munching on a box of Cheez-Its, and of course, the Twinkie.)

Thinking requires energy, right? [[TheSmartGuy Some]] [[TheProfessor characters]], do more thinking than others. These characters will need to have a quick pick-me-up on hand, and most decide to eat some sweets. Perhaps the origin of this trope is the idea that showing a character eating sweets is a way to give the viewer clues as to his hyperactive nature, and it is harder to show the genius's mental hyperactivity on screen than another character's physical hyperactivity. Geniuses on TV also [[AbsentMindedProfessor tend toward the socially immature and the]] [[MadScientist eccentric]], and showing them eating candy may be a clue to this. Even if a genius character isn't [[SweetTooth constantly binging on sweets]], if he has a TrademarkFavoriteFood, it is likely to be sweet in flavor.

* While immature, the Flash is one of the smartest characters in the DCAU Justice League universe, so much that he was once used as a computer to process information faster than otherwise possible, and he's aways eating high sugar content food:

'''Detective''': Maybe some coffee will help. How do you take it? \\
'''Flash''': Cream and 37 sugars. [[{{Beat}} [the detective starts, then looks at him incredulously]]] Really.

* Judging by the point pickups, the titular [[ChildProdigy boy genius]] of ''VideoGame/CommanderKeen'' has quite the sweet tooth, given that more than half of them are some sort of (usually alien) sweets.

* The Professor in ''Manga/{{Nichijou}}'' can always be expected to either be eating junk food of some kind, or trying to get someone to give her some.

* The Professor in ''Manga/{{Nichijou}}'' can always be expected to either be eating junk food of some kind, or trying to get someone to give her some. And as for the "genius" part, she's only eight, but she's capable of creating robots so advanced that it counts more like creating life itself.
