Cartoons teaching something useful

This morning my daughter was awake as I went downstairs to make breakfast: she’s an early riser and is the only one in the house who sees me leave for work.

I had the bacon going and the eggs on the counter ready to crack.  She asks me “Daddy, are those farm-fresh eggs?  Did you get them at a farm?  Calliou’s friend gets his eggs from a farm”.

Say what?  As it happens these were double yolk eggs I get from a local farm.  I know Caillou is a Canadian cartoon character that has a good message, but I didn’t realize he was a locavore helping to promote sustainability in our food chain.
