Saturday morning hunkering down watching your favorite cartoons would not have been the same without a bowlful of your favorite cereal.
It all started by cruising down the cereal aisle.
While hanging from the shopping cart in a precarious way you saw the wondrous boxes of cereal go by as a blur. Remember the constant begging for your cereal of choice at the moment or for the spontaneous choice because of a prize offered inside. Every type of cereal imaginable from television shows to movies to action figures, etc.
Many of the boxes had their own memorable characters to hock sugary cereals to children. Some have been around since the 50's or before. For the most part I will only mention the cereals that had a special place in my heart or belly and not the old standby greats like Frosted Flakes with Tony the Tiger or Fruity and Coco Pebbles.Movie Cereal
From a galaxy far far away came this cereal and it tasted like it too. I bought it anyways being the die hard Star Wars fan that I was.
I remember a rubber finger extender with a light up end that glowed red from this cereal.
Who you gonna call Ghostbusters.
Gremlins cereal was okay to get wet with milk but don't let your mom catch you eating them from the box after midnight while hiding in the pantry.
Batman cereal was only available for a short time after the movie came out. It had a cool batman bank with it. I always liked it best when the prize was in the box or attached to it, as opposed to mail in offers or dumb cut outs.
Who remembers the Addams Family cereal. I had all four flashlights thank you very much!TV Cereal
The real american cereal? I barely remember Gi Joe All Stars.
Two smurfy cereals to choose from. C'mon it wasn't as bad as your friends catching you eating Strawberry Shortcake cereal.
I pity the fool that doesn't eat my cereal. It was like alpha bits for the illiterate. It only came with "T"s
A delicious blend of rice chex like wafers with a sugary coating with marshmallow weapons.Videogame Cereal
I always made video game noises while eating these, especially Pac Man. Nintendo it's a cereal wow! Mario or Link you choose.
