Looking for examples of cities having been portrayed in cartoons...

I'll start since I created the thread:


Futurama had an episode called "The Deep South" where they landed on Earth after it had been flooded over, and they found an underwater city called "The Lost City of ATLANTA"


Archaeologist for Hire: The Lost City of Atlanta


Atlanta - Futurama Wiki, the Futurama database

BTW In that Atlanta episode I almost died when she first swept the grime away from the sign. Really clever episode.

Futurama episode of Atlanta is one of the best cartoon episodes ever.

I believe King of the Hill had episodes at least partly in Corpus Christi (beach episode I think), Dallas (several), Wichita Falls (Bobby starts comparing Arlen to it, to Arlen's disadvantage), New Orleans (The football throw one), Phoenix (Hank's mom I think retired there), and Sturgis (one where they get a motorcycle). Probably Houston too, but I'm blanking on a specific episode. There was also one involving NYC, but just about everything has done an NYC, LA, or DC episode.

The Simpsons had an episode where Bart and the gang went to Knoxville, Tennessee. It's one of the few mentions of Knoxville I recall on television, animated or not. It's not a very favorable reference, I think Knoxville almost looked like a small town with a sunsphere/wig-shop, but it's something.

Zorak in Space Ghost: Coast to Coast mentioned "Dothan, Alabama" a couple times, but I don't think they ever depicted it.

As should be clear I was going for slightly unusual.

A long time ago, Bugs Bunny was featured in a cartoon called Transylvania 6-5000. He was traveling to Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, but instead ended up in Pittsburghe, Transylvania.
