This is probably going to sound a little strange,
but the other day I realised that there is meat promotion even in Spongebob.

I'm sure the people behind the show don't intentionally promote it, though.
They probably just never thought about it.

I remember when I was younger and carnivorous,
I would watch spongebob make all the krabby patties and all that jazz,
and me being a highly suggestible child would start craving a burger.
Especially because they constantly tell you about how 'delicious' it is.
Even though it's a cartoon.
So wouldn't that contribute to sending the 'MEAT = YUM YUM GOOD' message to
children?? Therefore resulting in more and more animals consumed..

Am I going a little crazy here?

I'm not sure if I'm making sense haha.

yeah, even in Ice Age 3 (saw it last night with the family, my parents love the Ice Age movies) they diss vegetarians!!
When the mum T-Rex is trying to feed her babies meat, Sid tells her that he wants to raise them vegetarian, and is waving a giant broccoli around (excuse me while I drool a bit). broccoli
Sid tells the baby T-Rexs that you need to eat your vegetables to grow big and strong *Sid flexes nonexistence muscles*. Comparing weakling, chubby, unfit vegetarian sloth to giant T-Rex carnivore doesn't put vegetarianism in a good light.

So subliminal!!
