I am trying to find the name of this short film or movie that I vaguely remember from my youth (the 1980s). All I remember is kids in a car, them getting abducted, and something about the aliens who abducted them loving anchovy pizza.

  • Cartoon or live-action?

    Being forced to crave anchovies sounds more like something out of a horror movie, not sci-fi. Or do you mean the aliens crave anchovies?

UFO Kidnapped! by Nickelodeon in 1983. It featured the cast of You Can't Do That on Television, a high school parody/comedy series. YouTube videos start here.

The story has several children and a few adults being abducted by aliens in a classical silver saucer. The aliens liked anchovies on pizza, laughed often at the humans' ignorance about aliens and outer space, and took them in their spacecraft through a portal in the Sun to another star system. UFO Kidnapped! was a pilot show that was never picked up by Nickelodeon. You Can't Do That on Television was actually produced in Canada.
