Muppet Babies: Did you change your Facebook profile pic?

You’ve undoubtedly noticed the Facebook cartoon profile pics for many of your friends over the past day, including the likes of cartoons from the 90′s Rugrats, Bobby’s World and Arnold, Cat and Dog, Doug, and my personal favorite, from the cartoons from the 80′s, the Muppet Babies. If you haven’t figured it out, this meme is supposed to be in support of fighting violence against children. But is it a hoax of sorts?

The status update people are putting in reads like this: “Change your facebook profile picture to a cartoon from your childhood and invite your friends to do the same. Until Monday (December 6), there should be no human faces on facebook, but a stash of memories. This is for eliminating violence against children.”

But KnowYourMeme.com notes this may simply be the reincarnation of an unsuccessful meme a couple weeks ago, which also urged people to change their Facebook pics to cartoons. People may have just added the “eliminating violence against children” note to try to make it more popular.

In the end it probably doesn’t matter – even if it wasn’t originally designed that way, the tagline is getting spread. Did you change your profile?
