Cartoons That Stay Crunchy in Milk

I ran across this blog about breakfast cereals and cartoons a week or so back and it’s a fun read.

Some of my favorite points…

The Trix Rabbit:

“…the Rabbit is the modern day retelling of the Greek tragic myth of Tantalus; the cereal is forever just out of reach. The kids are psychologically demented and knowingly evil…”

Cap’n Crunch:

“According to Quaker Oats, the Cap’n was once promoted to Admiral”

(I have to wonder – did they spell it “Adm’l”?)

Lucky the Leprechaun:

“Trivia: the current 5-pointed star was originally introduced as 6-pointed; read into it what you will.”
