Cereal Mascot Ratings [Feb. 5th, 2013|12:07 am]
Cereal Mascot Ratings (with a nod to Lore Sjoberg)

Trix Rabbit

Trix Rabbit is a classic. Nice character, if you can overlook that bit of psychotic and obsessive zeal. Still, a smooth cartoon design that lends itself to nice packaging. B+

Cocoa Moons Alien

An alien, which fits with the cereal name, but a rather odd and disjointed design. Not a pleasing color scheme either. Adds up to a rather chaotic package but at least it's themed. Though I think they missed an opportunity to make his eyes line up with the O's in the name. C

Cookie Crisp Wolf

Check this guy out! What a cute wolf! Who wouldn't want to have breakfast with this guy? Excellent (relatively) new character for Cookie Crisp. (Now if I only liked the cereal...) Cute, furry, lovable. A+

Marshmallow Magic ...Rabbit?

WTF. Seriously, look at that... W. T. F. How could you take one of the cutest animals in nature and produce this? Huge gaping mouth with orange tongue (?) and incisors floating vaguely back under the sinuses. Little stick arms and huge neck-head and tiny cheeks? Ye gods, I don't want to look at that over breakfast. Urg. D-

I love that wolf! I saw him for the first time myself just the other day. Among all the other cereals, he totally caught my eye.

Yes, yes, Tony is grrrrreat! I... forgot to take a picture of him. Oops. :P

That and I love Thurl Ravenscroft who did the original Tony voice.

Yeah, I agree, that wolf is cute... and that bunny in the last one is a bit weird-looking, to say the least.

The bunny's cereal looks like kibble anyway!

All I could think of when I saw the "Marshmallow Magic" rabbit was, "In Soviet Russia cereal eats you!"

I liked the Cookie Crisp Dog they had in the 80s and 90s. :)

I don't like cookie crisp either but I bought one box when they updated the character from a fat dog to a sexy shirtless wolf. It's hot when a normally clothed character, get stripped, even if through character iterations.

As a parent, I can understand you reviewing cereal characters, but I hope you aren't feeding your kids sugary cereals!

The most common cereal choices in our house are Frosted Mini-Wheats and Cheerios. So not too bad, on the scale of things.
