So my kids are long past PBS-kids-cartoon age, but my oldest was babysitting a couple kids here and we turned on the TV and ran across "Curious George" on PBS.

The episode caught our eye mainly because it was very veg. friendly (Curious George messes up a chef's famous recipe for "Vegetarian Burgers" but then they're fixed and turn out better than ever...etc., etc.,) and didn't poke fun at the vegetarian character or make him appear effeminate, nerdy or weak as is often the case (he's a firefighter actually).

We all thought it was pretty good (and that's saying a LOT for teenagers to actually give a thumbs up to a kids cartoon).

I dropped a note to the producers of the show.

Just thought I'd pass the info along.

That's really awesome, actually. It gives me a warm fuzzy feeling when veg-friendly ideas make an apperance on the telly.

Plus, he was a vegan AND a firefighter?
Okay, sorry, I need a boyfriend. LoL

PS- Tempeh is oh-so delicious.
