Burbank: Cartoon Headquarters



Deli owner Robert Moore and wall art.

Evidence, if any is needed.

At Moore's Deli in Burbank, Homer Simpson can be found eating a burger while Dora the Explorer dreams up her next quest, “Adventure Time's” Lumpy Space Princess raves about the deli's tuna and “Futurama's” Bender smokes a cigar.

Restaurant owner Robert Moore harbors a hidden cultural gem in Media City — the four white walls of the deli's back dining room are covered with original artwork by cartoonists for powerhouse media companies with local headquarters or production offices, including Cartoon Network, Nickelodeon and Warner Bros. ...

There's also Disney Television Animation, Walt Disney Animation Studios, and right next door (in Glendale) Disney Toon Studios, DreamWorks Animation, Renegade, and Rough Draft.

Maybe the most accurate slogan would be: "The east San Fernando Valley, a hotbed of animation. (And now it's even more important to the Valley ... since so much of the porn industry has decamped to Miami.)
