Why it's important to watch cartoons

Why it's important to watch cartoons

Ok, so maybe I am getting a little bit too old for cartoons, but you have to admit that there is nothing better than an episode of Scooby Doo with your cornflakes on a Saturday morning. And the little kid in me absolutely LOVED this episode of Arthur:

How cute is Sue Ellen's new bestie Sally? You know, Sue Ellen and I have something in common – almost four years ago I made a new friend called Joey. He lives in a monkey sanctuary in Cornwall, England. (Luckily he is very hairy because it gets FREEZING there!)

250-joey.jpgFor 9 years, Joey had been kept as a pet in a cage, which was MUCH too small for a monkey, and he had become physically disabled as a result. Luckily the sanctuary rescued him and he now has plenty of space and other monkey friends. When Joey looked at me, poked his tongue out and threw an apple at my face, I knew that I could never eat animals again!


200-lisa-lamb.jpgSue Ellen and I are not the only ones who have made a friendship with an animal that has changed us for good. Lisa Simpson beat us to it when she became vegetarian in 1995 after bonding with a lamb. That means Lisa has been vegetarian for over 17 years! Strangely enough, she hasn't aged a day. Could this be the consequences of living meat-free? 

By deciding not to eat animals, Sue Ellen is going to save up to 100 cartoon lives per season! And Lisa has saved thousands and thousands of cartoon sheep, cows, pigs,chickens and fish. If you want to save real animals you can make the pledge to be veg! Start with my personal wintery favourite – minestrone soup!


And while you are warming up with a bowl of delicious cruelty-free goodness, why not tell us about your special animal friend in the comments below?

Because I need more reasons to watch cartoons haha. I watched a lot of animal related cartoons when I was younger, which probably helped me love animals even more.
That Arthur episode is great though haha
