You gotta love all the behind-the-scenes drama that happens in the cartoon world regarding the diets of certain characters. Last month, we had the story of Casey Kasem petitioning for Shaggy from Scooby-Doo to remain VEG. Now comes word that Paul McCartney had some push in keeping Lisa Simpson’s dinner plate meat-free. David Mirkin, executive producer for The Simpsons, told how it all went down.

“It’s actually Paul McCartney who was responsible for another permanent change,” Mirkin said. “When I asked him to do the vegetarian episode, he agreed but made me promise to keep Lisa as a vegetarian – and I was happy to comply with that because I’m a vegetarian too! Every time I see him, he always checks – and he’s always surrounded by nine or ten lawyers, so it’s quite frightening!”

As the VegetarianStar points out, perhaps Lisa’s little sister Maggie will be the next to go VEG — should she ever decide something looks better than the binky.
