Osama bin Laden remains one of the most infamous names in human history, but he’s still something of a mysterious figure. The CIA just revealed an interesting tidbit about the notorious terrorist behind the 9/11 attacks: he apparently liked cartoons.

We’re having a really hard time picturing Osama bin Laden watching Cars.

According to Express, when US military special ops took out bin Laden in May 2011, several pirated copies of movies were found in his Pakistan hideout. Several of the titles were animated features, including Antz, Batman: Gotham Knight, Cars, Chicken Little, Home on the Range, and Ice Age: Dawn of the Dinosaurs. Also among the collection were The Three Musketeers, Resident Evil, and – strangely enough – Where in the World is Osama bin Laden?.

A library of video games were also found, such as Counter-Strike, Dragon Ball Z, Final Fantasy VII, Half-Life, and Super Mario Bros.

We wonder how bin Laden would’ve reacted to seeing Zero Dark Thirty?
