Spongebob: Eat Me Kids!
Oh isn't this cool? America's top cartoon companies are teaming up with veggie producers to encourage young peeps to eat veggies! Alas, America has a good idea!
Mickey Mouse, Spongebob and the Tasmanian Devil are coming to a produce aisle near you. I was wondering though, Tasmanian Devil? Is it likely to be eaten, boxed with an ugly looking cartoon? Anyway, these cartoon characters are popping up on fruit and vegetable stands across USA as growers strike licensing deals with entertainment companies hungry to cultivate positive images among health-conscious parents and kids.
Walt Disney, as always is topping the chart on the produce business. On an associated press interview, Harry Dollman, head of food products licensing for Disney said "We're doing it predominantly because it is the right thing to do, but secondarily because it is the right business to be in." Alas! America is going for the right business to do! Wow I'm amazed!
Peaches with Daisy Duck and Goofy stickers, Grapes packaged in Mickey and Minnie Mouse boxes, Organic apples with Winnie the Pooh can now be bought by fooled kids. hahaha! I mean, if this was done in The Philippines, the mart ass kids here won't mind if their life's biggest Idol was on the cover as long as it's a Veggie inside. American kids are easy to fool with cartoons. Hahaha! Hey mom don't forget to wear your Disney Apron to fool the kids more!
Among the other soon-to-be-available products are Nickelodeon's Spongebob SquarePants spinach, Dora the Explorer oranges, Tweety Bird grapes and Tasmanian Devil apples, the result of a deal between Ready Pac Produce Inc. and Time Warner Inc.'s Warner Bros. Hey it's Spongebob on the box! Let's eat Spinach! Wahahaha fools...
