Behind the scenes
In the real world, the ability of carrots to improve eyesight has been a long held urban myth, one which played a significant role World War II. In 1940, the British Royal Air Force published a story that claimed fighter pilot John Cunningham (nicknamed "Cats' Eyes") had a steady diet of carrots to thank for his flying prowess at night. This kicked off a three year propaganda campaign by the British government to get people to eat more carrots. The aim was was twofold: to encourage the public to eat more carrots as they were one of the few plentiful foods available during the German blockade, and to hide the fact that the United Kingdom was the first country to successfully employ RADAR, which gave their pilots an edge when flying at night.
