Take with us, if you will, a stroll down memory lane.
Nothing complemented your Saturday morning cartoons better than a ridiculously awesome commercial for Trix, Fruity Pebbles or Cookie Crisp. Remember those TV spots?
We're here to help jog your memory with 15 of our favorite old-timey cereal ads. Which did you like best?
Rice Krispies (1950s)
Snack, Crack and Pop have been around for quite awhile. Who knew they could groove so well?
Cheerios (1950s to 1960s)
The Cheerios Kid was one of the cereal's first advertising concepts.
Cap'n Crunch (1960s)
Pretty amazing how little has changed about the Cap'n in about five decades. Cap'n Crunch to the rescue!
Count Chocula (1970s)
Ah, Count Chocula. You remind us of a simpler time in vampire history.
Life Cereal (1972)
Remember Mikey? Cutest cereal mascot ever, and he's not even a cartoon. This spot was on TV for more than 12 years, making it one of the longest running commercials in history.
Frosted Flakes (1980s)
Something about this advertisement seems a bit misleading, no?
Ghost Busters Cereal (1985 to 1990)
Who can forget the eternal lyrics, "Marshmallow ghosts, fruit flavored O's. Ghostbusters tastes great with milk and juice and toast!"
Man, that lady has a lot of cereal. Seriously, why does she have so much cereal?
Fruit Loops (1990s)
It's like an Indiana Jones movie with cereal!
How come the rabbit never got to have any cereal? Why is everyone in the Trix universe so mean?
Michael Jordan and Wheaties. Cereal was never the same.
Cocoa Puffs (1992)
Aw, look at little Joseph Gordon-Levitt go coo-coo for cocoa puffs.
Fruity Pebbles (1992)
Because who doesn't love a rapping Fred and Barney?
Cookie Crisp (1993)
The law prevails yet again! Also, word of caution to burglars: Don't freaking steal from policemen. It never ends well.
Golden Crisp (1993)
Golden Crisp and giant murder are a perfect pairing, apparently.
