Must Have Caffeine: Western Animation

  • In Men In Black The Animated Series, the "worm guys" entire function at MIB seems to involve making coffee (and getting into wacky shenanigans at the worst of times). It is revealed that on their home planet, only royalty can drink coffee, leading to their quick addiction to it once they reached Earth (Forbidden Fruit and all that). One episode has them saving their king's life and requesting the right to freely drink coffee as their reward.
  • One episode of Dexter's Laboratory shows how Mom and Dad are in the morning before they have their coffee (yikes!), but once they have it they magically transform into their "normal" selves.
    • And the plot of the episode is, of course, that the kids have stolen their coffee overnight, Dexter being curious how coffee changes them.
  • Tweek from South Park is absolutely addicted to coffee, and as a result is very twitchy. His parents (who give him the coffee) think his twitchiness is due to ADD.
    • It's probably because his dad owns a coffee house, though.
  • Wyatt from 6Teen always has coffee every day. One time he couldn't get coffee, which let him have very little energy.
  • Futurama episode "Three Hundred Big Boys" involved Fry's attempt to use his 300 Tricky Dick Funbucks (read: "tax refund") on 100 cups of coffee. Despite getting unbelievably jittery, irascible, and otherwise @#$%ing wired, he arrives at this goal. Somehow. Apparently, when you hit #100, you attain temporary Super Speed.
  • In an episode of Justice League, Doctor Destiny is able to trap people (and the other league members) when they fall asleep. Batman's been up for three days straight, and he needs to stay up long enough to find and defeat DD. He winds up driving to a restaurant and demanding the most caffeine laden drink they have. NOW!
  • The Simpsons Movie has an AA reunion going berserk after the coffee machine is broken.
    • An episode sees Bart slip into this phase when his parents are away and they're left with Grandpa Simpson to watch them...
    Bart: Hey grandpa, top me off.
    Grandpa Simpson: Are you sure your parents let you kids have coffee?
    Bart: FOR THE LAST TIME, YES!
    • Another one has Barney switch to coffee for a while before inevitably returning to beer.
    • "Mountain of Madness" starts with Mr. Burns arriving at work all chipper and energetic; when Smithers offers him his coffee, he turns it down, saying he doesn't need it. Then, over the span of about five minutes, he slowly nods off, and starts to fall asleep, until he weakly says, "Smithers... cof... fee..." (He snaps back awake when he gets it.)
  • In Jackie Chan Adventures, Uncle orders either Jackie or Torhu to "Get in kitchen and make coffee! Uncle need caffeine!"
    • He gets very irritable if he doesn't get it. "You forgot to make coffee this morning! Coffee is the only thing keeping Uncle's ancient heart beating! You want dead Uncle?! NO?! THEN YOU MAKE COFFEE!!"
  • The Fairly OddParents: Hilarity ensues when Cosmo and Wanda turn into humans and Mr. Crocker introduces them to their first cup of coffee (bordering on Caffeine Bullet Time)
  • This is a major plot point in the episode Caffeinated Coffee Tickets of Regular Show.
  • In The Powerpuff Girls episode "Power Lunch", Lil' Arturo drinks a cup of coffee followed by the whole pot.
  • In Space Ghost Coast to Coast, Brak famously states "I don't like coffee. It makes me jittery. Here's an impression of me on coffee: DS;5w23LFKJP70IEU@Q)O($*#@05rsldkfjxxx. Hey, whaddayadoinwhaddayadoinwhaddayadoinwhaddayadoin? I don't know what I'm doin', cause I've had too much coffee! AAAAA! Don't drink too much coffee, kids."
    • In the Cartoon Planet episode 'Tom Foolery', Zorak explains that his bad temperment is from giving up coffee;
    Space Ghost: Uh oh.
    Zorak: My whole biosystem is in utter turmoil. There's an all-out war raging inside of this crusty shell and I'M LOSING!!
  • Bugs Bunny, of all people, in an episode of The Looney Tunes Show. He has at least five cups of coffee a morning, which makes him jittery, high-strung and paranoid, and when his doctor makes him go off caffeine he switches to an energy drink of questionable legality. In The Stinger for the episode, he reveals that the doctor told him one cup a day couldn't hurt...and is shown pouring coffee into a cup the size of a foot bath.
  • Danger Mouse: The episode "Ee-Tea!" has society as a global whole ground to a halt after Baron Greenback steals all the tea there is.
  • Bobo (especially after a rough night) in Generator Rex. In "Crash and Burn", he finds the coffee maker is empty, so he eats the coffee grounds.
