When "Soccer" is Hilariously Portrayed in Cartoons (With Videos)

When American animated movies and cartoon series writers have an opportunity to poke a bit of fun at "soccer" they tend to do so quite well. Today we take a look at 5 animations that have incorporated the beautiful game into their domain, and using witty or clever humor gave their characters a chance to take a stab at the most popular sport in the world.

Despicable Me 2

Perhaps this was more of a promo than anything else, but the creators of DM2 decided to poke a little fun at the diving that sometimes occurs during a match. That with the Italian connotation makes this video hilarious.

The Simpsons

Infamous cartoon series The Simpsons had football featured various times throughout the years. But this past summer as a part of the 2014 FIFA World Cup festivities the creators decided to use the game to their advantage. Here are just two of many funny Simpsons soccer moments.

Family Guy

One of my favorite all time animated shows, Family Guy had this short clip in which Stewie simply and effectively makes fun of the game of football with the short phrase "huh, that was easy". The second clip is an epic 7 second clip featuring French football star Zinedine Zidane

King of the Hill

Being a show that's based in southern United States there was never any doubt that if soccer was to ever be featured in the show it would not portray the sport as the most exciting. Here are two clips of the game being featured in this show.

Cleveland Show

A spin-off of Family Guy the Cleveland Show was never one of my favorites but this soccer clip is perhaps one of the funniest around.
