5 Things to Love

Food-Loving TV Personalities

By Stett Holbrook


HERE are five of my favorite eaters from TV land.


Fred Flintstone   Gotta love a guy who orders a rack of ribs from a drive-through that's so big it tips over his car. Yaba-daba-do!


Homer Simpson   He reigns supreme.


Laverne De Fazio   Her pleasures are more of the liquid sort—Shotz beer and milk with Pepsi.


Tony Soprano   While cold cut meats have been known to cause him to faint, T still eats with gusto as long it's honest Italian-American food. 


Wimpy   Eating burgers is so important to Popeye's sidekick he's willing go into debt on a daily basis to get his fix.
