Old Cartoon Characters Invade Facebook for Today’s Children

Posted on Dec 3 2010 - 10:41pm by Richard Sharp

Similar to the lookalike viral, Facebook members are changing their profile pictures to cartoon characters in a bid to raise awareness of child cruelty; this fantastic cause encourages users to choose a cartoon character from their childhood.

“Change your profile picture to your favourite cartoon from when you were a kid,” a note reads that is being circulated on the social networking site. “The goal of this game is not to see a human picture on Facebook, but an invasion of childhood memories until Monday. PLAY AND PASS ALONG!”

Popular characters have included Doug, the Rug rats, Care bears, The Snowman, Banana man, The Turtles and my personal favourite Super Ted.

The note continues, “From now until December 7, change your profile picture to a cartoon character from your childhood. The objective of this is not to see any human faces on Facebook but an invasion of memories for the fight against Violence to Children. Remember we were kids too.”

So what cartoon character will you choose?
