alfie120 If you designed it especially for a company, the company can retain the rights and royalties for that character by signing a contract for that. To know about the rights and royalties visit this site http://si-r-usdesign.com/.

johndenwar What animation/legal rights to own for the cartoon character designed for a company?

Indian Summer Have we mentioned that cartoonist Bizarro (don't know his/hers real name) is a vegan? Bizarro is that cartoon with all the cute little UFOs, inverted birds and stuff. Read all about it on bizarro.com

DuckThatWasn't The guy on Scooby Doo (the cartoon) is a vegetarian. I think it's Shaggy, but I'm not sure. (I really hate Scooby Doo.) Anyway, the character is voiced by Kasey Kasem, who asked that he be a vegetarian. Or maybe it's a vegan.

Whoa. That's awesome! She's to vegetarians like Captain Planet was to environmentalists! XD



asoka, I think it's great what you're doing! You have a great website, and thanks for the information on Taipei! Sounds like a nice place to live!

kpickell I guess this doesn't qualify as a cartoon, but in the video game Ratchet and Clank 2,

when they get sent to prison Clank tells the guard he will needs vegetarian meals. The guard replies, "Sure, vegan or fruitarian?"

Kinda cute to see that in a video game.

Indian Summer I think cartoonist Gary Larson is a vegetarian. He's now retired, but his comics are still being published. (Reading his comics, it doesn't really come as a surprise that he's vegetarian...)



Although Nemi is a fish-eater, there are quite a lot of vegetarian/animal rights related Nemi strips. (Not sure how much of it is published in English...)

[email protected]@_girl The new movie Shark Tales, (it's not out yet, but one of the next ones by Pixar) and Jack Black plays a vegetarian shark. Then Teen Titans, the character beast boy is a vegetarian.

I thought Bubbles from the powerpuff girls was vegetarian.. but I think she ate shrimp in a later episode or something.



Are there any clues showing one of Daria, Janem or Trent is vegetarian? I found no clue about it, except the one I got from fanic fiction saying Daria's sister, Quinn, is vegetarian. Can anyone help?

Skylark I once did a project on vegetarianism showing up in the media. We came across lots of the same stuff y'all mentioned. The only other examples that spring to mind aren't from cartoons.

Can you tell us something about vegetarianism in Taiwan?

Is it common? Is it accepted or looked down upon?

Do you have many vegetarian restaurants? stores?

Thanks for sharing!

In the past, people in Taiwan go vegetarian mainly due to religion, Buddhism; nowadays, many young generations go vegetarian because of health, beauty and ethical reason. And, the population of vegetarian is growing. So, it is widely accepted but comparing to omni it is still a small portion of all : ) Also, you can easily find a vegetarian restaurant in large city, like Taipei, and buy vegetarian food at super market or some dedicated store. As for the vegetarian food flavor, well, you can find Thai, Indian, Japanese, Chinese, France and Western vegetarian restaurant. There is even a kind of all-you-can-eat vegetarian restaurant (not a cafeteria) in Taipei. It is a kind of mix of all flavors. I believe there are five such kinds of restaurant in Taipei, pricing from 12 to 15 US$. And, some non-vegetarian restaurants are now offering vegetarian meal set for vegetarian. In addition, there are lots of small vegetarian restaurants around many corners. So, if you were here in Taipei, the place I live, you will love it as a vegetarian.



Yap, thats it. I hope this gives you a picture of what you wanna know.



And, thank you for visiting my website and finding it lovely.

Here is what I got that Darias sister, Quinn, is a vegetarian.



"That's why I'm going the vegetarian route," Quinn explained. "Easier to explain to people. And I'm no longer killing animals for my food. I feel better that way."

Kelsk "Invader Zim" doesn't eat anything from animals.. But I think that's mainly because his race is highly alleric to it and it make's his skin buuuuuuuurn.

(They only eat candy... Yes, the show is f**ked up).

A good answer why Beat Boy is a vegan:



****

One moment of hilarity comes from a simple scenario of ordering pizza. The group can't decide on toppings, and Beast Boy insists on vegetarian whereas Cyborg demands meat toppings. Beast Boy replies, "Dude, I've BEEN most of those animals!"



You see!! If everyone can stay in animal's position, then people will go vegetairan.

peace Lisa is a vegetarian. She said in one episode ("Lisa the Treehugger") that she is considering going vegan.

To my knowledge, Lisa has never eaten meat since the "Lisa the Vegetarian" episode in the 90's, thanks to a deal with Paul McCartney, who was a guest voice on that show. If you have seen Lisa eating meat, you probably are seeing older episodes before she went veggie.
