Can we all just take a moment to absorb the fact that the original voice actor for Shaggy from Scooby Doo was a vegan?

Not saying we should idolize people just for being vegan, but Casey Kasem, the original voice actor of Shaggy from Scooby Doo, was actually a dedicated vegan according to his Wikipedia page, and he was also an open critic of factory farming. He left the show briefly in 1995 because he was asked to voice Shaggy in a Burger King commercial, but returned after having negotiated that Shaggy would become a vegetarian. This lead to Shaggy becoming the first vegetarian cartoon character!

I just learned this today and I think it's pretty neat! Shaggy was by far my favorite character from Scooby Doo as a kid.
